31 of the Most Colorful Venues from Around the World

Seriously guys, considering the shade of one simple dress #broketheinternet - both headlining news stories and causing mostly sane adults to question reality and their eyesight, we’d say color sure is a big deal in 2015.  Once thought to be relegated to tropical sunny weather, we’re seeing these perfect pops of color crop up from the cool coast of California to chic chalets in France. As we prefer our world view through rose-colored glasses anyway, we’ve rounded up 31 candy-colored, sweet spun-sugar shades of gathering spots from all over the globe to spice up your Insta feed and wet your design whistle. Sunny, cheerful and sweeter than summertime popsicles or a box of pastel macaroons, we defy you to get through this round-up without a smile on your face and inspiration in your heart.
