I love the use here of an austere cream stucco and black paint scheme, highlighted with “just a splash of color.” The glass block balcony with the porthole window door is an Art Moderne archetype. Note, the solid  black entryway door with the winsome, tiny red window. Madison Park, Seattle, WA USA, Art Modern, 1930.

This home has many of the details that are commonly used in the Art Moderne style. Note the flat roof, smooth stucco wall surfaces, glass block and wraparound windows. The bay window with the coping (the ledge at the roof line) segmented to match the windows, is a standout. Green Lake, Seattle, WA, USA, Art Moderne 1935
