This is a subtle and effective fence, it is a wonderful height that lends privacy from the street, but does not overpower the home or lot. Â Madison Park, Seattle, WA, USA. Bungalow, 1925
The eclectic blend of Japanese style roof, Craftsman style river rock piers,Â ArtÂ NouveauÂ style wrought iron and Arts and Crafts lighting all come together here to make a visually stimulating entry to a garden. Madison Park, Seattle, WA, USA, Eclectic 2010
MostÂ sidewalks spur you to rush, some ask you to pause, a few invite you to linger.Â The boxwood parterres in a strong but simple layout is sophisticated. The play of light and shadows is wonderful. The topiariesÂ add height interest. The spring flowers filling the parterres are charming. Special note: the witty boxwood topiary “flower baskets” in the daffodils! Madison Park, Seattle, WA, USA
I love the use here ofÂ 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 Â black entryway door with the winsome, tiny red window. Madison Park, Seattle, WA USA, Art Modern, 1930.
