Nov 26, 2009: Plaid House

Not technically a plaid house, because all the dictionaries say plaid is a fabric, but it's painted to look like plaid, and that's close enough. :p



The headline reads, "Chav-tastic coat of paint for wacky artist's house turned into Burberry shrine". As I understand it, "chav", to the Brits, means low rent, thuggish, anti-social, distasteful, etc...
I couldn't disagree more! I think it's really cool, very difficult to do, and probably expensive. The colors are quite conservative and tasteful. I like it a lot.

Quote:
Once a symbol for all things chav, Burberry had successfully re-branded itself as one of the UK's most sophisticated fashion labels. But a Norwegian artist looks set to undo all of their hard work after painting the exterior of his house - a former public toilet - in the brand's signature check. Jens Werner, 33, covered the entire building in the famous beige, black and red tartan design. The re-painting of the building in Larvik took several weeks at a cost of thousands of pounds.
How in hell is this house going to, "undo all of their hard work"? I don't understand what the Mail online is all in a lather about?

They spelled Moderncunts wrong.



SPUCK  Thursday Nov 26 06:59 AM



It's a very plaid house.



Sundae  Thursday Nov 26 07:02 AM

The Mail exists in a permanent state of lather.
That's what they do.

I think it looks great.



monster  Thursday Nov 26 10:27 AM

my first thought was "Chav". Totally not my cup of tea, spectacular achievement, but why pick a pattern so deeply associated with the dregs of English society?



Diaphone Jim  Thursday Nov 26 11:49 AM

Pretty nice building for a public toilet. Around here they are plastic one-holers.
It does have a pee symbol, though.

Sort of off kilter.



DanaC  Thursday Nov 26 04:20 PM

It's a little garish.



Cicero  Thursday Nov 26 04:32 PM

I like it at first- but like the neighbors experience....It is an eye-sore after that...

Geez, what a bunch of conformist party poopers. :p


ajaccio  Thursday Nov 26 09:31 PM

I think it's u-g-l-y. And I agree about the poor neighbors.

Makes my eyes go out of focus.



capnhowdy  Friday Nov 27 07:17 AM

Would this be considered a "tartan"?



spudcon  Friday Nov 27 10:31 AM

I'm painting my house with argyle sox.



Clodfobble  Friday Nov 27 10:12 PM

Wouldn't a paintbrush be easier?

No, argyle sox and peanut butter, very easy technique.
