So how would all of you express your design. For me, I would like to be able to choose my paint - a more shiny lacquered finish would be nice.

5,main frame is two pieces connected by the hinge. But I really can't see how going beyond 2 colours wouldn't get ugly.

Agreed, the one shown on the website does not look appealing to me. Too much going on.
