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

Victorian in Green Lake

Victorian in Green Lake

This home sits majestically up off the street. It is adorned with a wealth of Victorian details. Note the Eastlake style carving on the window pediments and the spindle fretwork on the porch. A particular favorite detail of mine is the multi colored glass in the main floor bay windows. Green Lake, Seattle, WA USA

Great dormer/porch combo

I like the porch and dormer combination on this house.

Dormers are a great building detail. I know that these brighten the upper floor significantly and they are in such attractive proportion to the porch roof. This gives the home  a unified and cohesive outlook. Notice  also the nice use of leaded and beveled glass. Green Lake, Seattle, WA, USA
