I just bought an wonderful 1955 ranch style home in a criminally lush neighborhood in Phoenix. It comes with a nice 1960 mural in the dining room:



It almost didn't survive the last owner. Fortunately, one of the parents talked them out of painting over it.

heeheheehheeheh

I immediately found this on eBay to go with it. Sometimes using the word "tiki" in the title is a stretch but still a good thing.

Cultjam.....That is beautiful. Looks like your dining room would be a great place to start your Tiki room. Wish my parents had painted over the gold one color Roman column building that was on our dining room wall .......

Looks like ceiling lights incorporated into palm tree leaves.

The mural is beautiful! Makes you want to learn more about the previous owners.

I thought it was an omen too. There will definately be a trip to the county recorder's office to find out it's history of owners.

The palm frond thing is an 8 1/2 foot long all metal ceiling fixture. It came from a modernist 50's home in Palm Springs. I thought it would compliment the mural.

Here's a closer view:

hEy CultJam, love that ceiling fixture. I was just wondering if there were any TCers in Pheonix area 'cause I just got invited to do a Tiki carving demo on Saturday, Nov.15th at the Hotel San Carlos. Theres some Tecky event, and Cal Tech is flying me out to carve poolside at a luau. They also bought Tiki necklaces from me that they're wiring with Led eyes. You should come check it out. It'll look like this only without the summer tan.

That ceiling fixture is out of this world!

The mural is excellent as well. I grew upin Phoenix- what part of town is your new pad located?

Thanks, Fatuhiva, it was irresistable.

The house is south of Thomas between 40th and 44th Streets. Wilshire down to Oak have matured large lots without the school district premium.
