Pagoda Obsession



I'm obsessing about Pagodas. For some reason they really appeal to me. Perhaps it goes back to my early years as a doll house devotee. I love their childlike, whimsical details. I would love to build one in my backyard but I don't think my home owners association would approve.



One of my favorite book purchases last year was Chinoiseries. Eye candy to the extreme.



I see Pagodas everywhere.



I loved this Pagoda shaped lantern so much I decided to do a rendering of it. Here are a few versions in different colors.

I want to move in....

I'd like the bi-color blue pagoda please, fitted with 2BR, 2BA, Wolf range and a water view. School district not important.
