Welcome to WA

West Australia is the Mother of Invention because, well, it's made of small towns with few and far between.

So it seems... but there is more to this state than meets the eye. This blog aims to locate and educate, so get to know your state well!

Event: Food Loose Tour

imasticate:

27 September 2014

Summer is teasing us, just around the corner, and this weekend was the perfect time for the Food Loose Tour. I scored a free invite (woo!!) but tickets are usually $39 for the 4 hour International Food Adventure. You need to bring another $25-$30 in small notes and coins…

Chisolm House, Dalkeith, Australiavia news.com.au
Posh 1930s Deco home in the Perth area.
From a feature article (which includes info on an interior renovation that brought things back to the 1930s/1940s rather than the 80s mismash it had turned into):

Its been the backdrop for Hollywood films, and has a story so rich that it could have a movie of its own, but now Perth’s heritage listed “Chisolm House” is up for sale.Built in 1939 by renowned architect Oswald Chisolm, the stunning Dalkeith home is a perfect example of genuine art deco…
…“It was Oswald Chisolm’s family home up until 1961,” said the current owner.
“When he first moved in he had with him a cook, a butler and a maid, but two weeks later war broke and they were all conscripted, so he was left without any staff.”A famous Perth name, work of Chisholm’s firm in the 1930s included the Forest Park Methodist Church and the remodelling of the AMA House, St Georges Terrace.
The current owner bought the house in 2000, shortly before it was heritage listed.Architecturally the home was stunning, but the interiors had become a mismatch of 80s style and more modern attuning.It took her 14 years, and more than a million dollars, but she wanted to make sure she returned to home to its former glory.
