Remodeling Plans: The Exterior // Art Deco + Palm Springs
Work with me here for a minute, would you?! While I don't plan to have the front door a color, but rather black, I could not find a porthole door photo to better explain my concept than this. Again, that's some Art Deco influence that would have been in line with the Streamline Moderne architecture of the time, yet quite cohesive with a modern aesthetic.

Some major changes coming this way, yet we threaten to not actually touch the majority of the house in terms of paint on the concrete blocks.
We recently had a neighbor tell us that she'd often looked at our house and longed for it become Mediterranean style, adding a roof with clay shingles, a trellis down the side, and such. I can't bring myself to stray so far from the architectural style of the house (and also am not into that, anyway). I'm sure everyone could look at it and see a different future for it, but I'm very excited to make it one that looks like the best possible version of its past.
So... when do you plan on showing up with your shovel? Let's move some plants outta here, folks!
Peeking into the interior shortly! For now, take a look at this straight on image of the house from Google Maps, and hope that it's not exactly like this much longer.
