Jeddah: Home Decor

Mixing patterns.  Unique design choices.  Tiling the entire exterior of buildings is chosen quite frequently here in Saudi Arabia to be the finished look.  Paint is not a popular option due to the harsh environmental conditions, such as heat, humidity, and dust.  This is an older villa that seems to be in need of some updating. 

I'm back!  Thank you for your patience as I took a break from blogging during the summer.

Thank you so much, Dina! I enjoyed a great summer in the Seattle area and returned about a week ago. I have missed blogging, but I was so busy I just couldn't do it all. Hope life is good with you!

What's with the checkpoint d├ęcor for the entrance?

I did miss you posts, even if I figured out you were on hiatus.

Welcome back! This particular building has an interesting looking pattern to it.

Nice to see your pictures again.

Hi Jerry - I'm not exactly sure of the checkpoint decor. I would have to say that it's an unusual choice for a private villa here. Even high security palace entrances don't display this type of thing. Glad to hear you missed my posts!
