Why Boring Liveries On Private A/c's?

It seems like all (or almost all) private aircrafts have some really boring liveries, or they are completely white. Is there any regulation about that, or it's just a lack of imagination with their owners?

If you owned an aircraft, wouldn't you make it nicer?

Just an example...

I think one of the reasons why Bizjets have such dull paint jobs is that the Execs. flying them don't want to draw attention to themselves. If a company is struggling, as too many are in the current economy, do they really want their stockholders to see the CEO or others travelling this way? Just my 2 cents.

Sounds like a good explanation, for most of them...

The various Pizza company planes are pretty well painted up. I've seen the Pizza Hut Canadair jet all painted up with the company logo.

I haven't seen the Domino's planes for a while or if Tom Monahan still uses them, but they used to have a Dhc-6, a cv-580 and a chopper painted dark blue with the Domino's emblem on the tail.

Mike Illitch (Little Caesar's) has a plane that really draws attention to itself. The plane is also used by the Detroit Red Wings and Tigers. It is a DC-9-50 with the Red Wings and Tiger's symbols on the fuselage and the Little Caesar character on the tail.

Revlon at one point had a Falcon painted with pinstripes in every colour of lipstick they made. It was actually quite interesting looking. I'm not sure if it was a promotional scheme or it's regular livery.

I saw that 727 (or one just like it) at MLI a few years ago.
