Eiffel Tower

True story! The Color of Love may soon be the color of the Eiffel Tower

Ever imagined Eiffel Tower in a different color? Don’t scratch that head! You could soon behold something strangely beautiful.

The Eiffel Tower, Paris‘ most iconic structure, is set to receive a facelift for the 20th time. This 3-year renovation project starting in October will also see an installation of a bulletproof glass wall around the monument.

Interestingly, the Eiffel Tower was originally painted a bright red, chosen in an effort to combat rust, before being repainted ocher in 1892.

The turn of the century saw its hue change to yellow (yes, yellow!?!!), before it was deemed ‘too optimistic’ for the era and a change was made to a tan from 1907. An effort was made to bring it closer at its roots in 1968 when it was painted reddish brown.
 

While the Ministry has yet to decide on a shade, the colors found on the underlying layers will certainly influence its decision.
