Being the homeowner of a home built in 1940, I find that I can be particularly excited by mid century modern design styles. I think this explains my fascination with block walls. I have seen some pretty sexy current gardens that used decorative block to create fabulous garden features so I have been curious to find out where I might put my hand on some as well as some good inspiration. Well I have just found both. Thanks to a comment on last Mid century modern garden post from Vegas Ali, I am now happily obsessed with the blog of Uncle Jack the Real Estate Agent cum Design Blogger who chronicles the various and unique decorative block patterns found in the old (by that I mean 1950’s) neighborhoods in Las Vegas. Very Vintage Vegas is a gold mine of ideas, inspirations and interesting tidbits.
Where can you get these beauties? I found these companies: A1 Block , Orco and Tileco Inc. These companies have some good selection, but I would love to find a place that can make a custom design. That would be really fun.
My Favorite is the greek key sort of shape on the bottom, and the the square inside the square one that I think be stunning loaded up with little tea lights. What is your favorite? What creative use can you think of using decorative blocks?
