Retro House in Malibu Photo Series

Yesterday, I told you I was going to show you the house that inspired my new section Retro Recipes Saturdays  here is the link to that post Mary Mac's Brown Bacon & Retro Recipe Saturdays.  Today I am going to show you this wonderful house, that so many of my childhood memories come from.  I had most of my birthday parties there, and I can remember New Years Eve's, and Passovers, and taking my wonderful husband to meet my aunt for her approval.  This is one of my favorite places on earth.  When I see it I breathe a sigh of relief,  it is kind of like all of the stress leaves my body when I get there.
Okay, so on to the pictures.

This is the big rock ( I wrote about it in Otters - Photography Series 5 )in front of my aunts house, and a picture of the house.

 This is my mom and my cousin Jack talking out on the front deck.

 These are some houses on the beach.  The house on the left was Tony Danza's and the one on the right is one of the newer homes.  A lot of people are buying the older homes and tearing them down to build larger one.  So you don't see as many of the older beach cottages.


The house on the left is one of the older houses on the beach, and the picture on the right is looking down the beach.


 These pictures are of the dining room and the stained glass window at the end of the dining room next to the built in cabinets.

These are some of the retro serving pieces that my aunt had in her cabinets.  They are really beautiful.  It was really fun looking at all of these things.  I love the bowls.


The picture above left is the kitchen with the original appliances, a the picture on the right are the inverted champagne flute Murano glass light fixtures.

 I love the den on the left.  It has a bar, which is always well stocked.  Jack and his wife Dede had this couch custom made for the living room.  It totally fits in with the 50's theme.  Just beautiful.

The first two pictures are of the guest bathroom's soaking tub and the counter and sink. The third picture is part of the master bathroom.

 Finally, Jack and Dede found an original Don The Beachcomber menu, and framed it with glass on both sides, so that you can look at it from either directions. 

I hope that you have enjoyed this little tour of my Aunt Charlotte's house in Malibu.  I have such great memories of growing up there.
