A touch of Deco?



What do you think? Am I right, definitely curvy Art Deco lines oui? I like to throw in a bit of Perth architecture now and then as it can be so totally diverse from one suburb to the next. This house along a favourite walk always catches my eye. I love the mosaic underwater artwork along the front wall which miraculously seems to have escaped tagging. The views are spectacular, although it would worry me being directly opposite the ocean, water rising, tsunamis etc. I know right 😉 Would love to have a peek inside. Btw we are just one day away from official winter.. check out that sky! Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

  4. It's a great house but it is too bad it doesn't have more grounds around it. It would be fun to see the interior!

  7. Not really sure about the house but I love the mosaic. I would hate to live close to the sea, apart for all the problems with water rising and tsunamis etc, you would be forever cleaning your salty windows!!! Take care. Any results to the scan? Diane

  8. I'm not at all surprised to see the building is located by the coast; to me it has a very nautical look, like the superstructure of a luxury cruise ship. There seems to be a number of styles that are often found at the seaside but infrequently elsewhere.

  9. What a view and stunningly sharp design. Have I told you lately you have a tremendously wonderful winter?!

  10. I'm not sure I know art deco from tart deco, but I love this place! It could be something designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. What amazing lines and what views the owners must have. I'm with Pat in that I'd love to see the interior, too. Maybe you get up a petition and the owners would let you in??? :)

  11. I think the curves and large overhangs identify this as an Art Deco building, but others may have different opinions. It is a beautiful house.

  12. That gorgeous blue sky belies the meteorological calendar for sure!

  13. That is a gorgeous house and man, what a view! That mosaic is pretty spectacular too. The scene is so summery that it's hard to believe you are heading into winter down there.

  14. Very deco and it looks quite new. I wondered before I enlarged the photo, is that an aquarium built into the wall. Wouldn't that be nice.

  15. That's quite a "wow" of a house, whatever its provenance. All those windows really take in an incredible view. Gorgeous!
    We're about a mile inland but close enough to the water to worry about tsunamis, especially since there's a fault in our region that's overdue for a break.

  17. I´d sure like to see close-ups of that mosaic, Grace, and, whilst you´re there again... can´t you just ring the bell and take some pics from the inside, too?
    Seriously, I once was thinking about this (very, very shortly) when we found a Hacienda here - sadly I didn´t brave up! What could´ve happened but a "NO!!!!" - maybe a "sure, go ahead :-)".
    Yes, very, maybe too close, the ocean (these days)...

  18. A very pretty building, like a flying saucer has landed, it looks very new to me, or it has recently painted.

  19. Love that mosaic work on the wall. It might get a bit too noisy by the main road to the beach maybe? But it's nice and must be worth a lot of money.

  20. Yes, Gracie, I've always noticed that house too - such a pretty wall. While I would love those sea views, I worry about all that water too! Great post!

  21. I've always been a big fan of Art Deco--great shots, Grace!
