A Place To Dine For

Vietnam House was another stop during Doors Open; the link from yesterday's post had other images from this residence and embassy space. These shots of the dining and living rooms were extra shots in my folders. I didn't notice the fire extinguisher until the other day.

  6. What a beautiful room. That fire extinguisher does seem a bit out of place sitting there. How funny.

  7. This is not really my taste, but I had to laugh about the fire extinguisher.

  8. I remember your exterior shot of this building and that it was very beautiful. The fire extinguisher is pretty funny. I wonder if someone set it down there temporarily and then forgot about it! :)

  9. It is well furnished, which makes sense, since Vietnam makes so much of the furniture we are buying these days in North America.

    @Jen: so did I.

    @Tomas: indeed.

    @Karl: it has character.

    @Revrunner: Most likely.

    @Marianne: they are.

    @Ciel: yes, we can't have that!

    @Sharon: now I do wonder if it belongs there or should be somewhere else.

    @Jan: it's peculiar how we overlook things.

  14. @Lowell: that could be.

    @Tanya: I sometimes come up with odd titles.

    @Jack: that is true.

    @Luis: I thought so.

    @Marleen: yes it does.

    @Grace: it does feel that way.

    @VP: elegant indeed.

  15. Nice that the table and floors match.

  16. I love that table. What a great place to clip and sort coupons.

  17. Doesn't have much of an Asian flair to it, does it? Very nice though.

  18. @Linda: definitely!

    @Linda: the place does let in a lot of light.

    @Norma: I certainly thought so.

    @Whisk: that would certainly be an alternate use!

    @RedPat: well the overall design of the house predates the diplomatic mission, but the statues on the cabinet have an Asian aspect.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Haha. Seriously, that would be a killer space. Or I can use it to block the sliding doors, where zombies might otherwise, break in.

  20. It is a lovely place, it would be nice to have a meal in that dining room, knowing how safety conscious they are there ;) a safe place to eat!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Lovely! And the fire extinguisher is obvious to add that special personal touch!

    ReplyDelete
  22. what a golden opportunity to get to see these places in person!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Since you called my attention to the fact that there was a fire extinguisher, I saw it right away. Odd place. Why not in a cabinet?

    ReplyDelete
  24. @Whisk: thanks! I think...

    @Halcyon: it certainly is.

    @Cloudia: thanks for stopping in.

    @Denise: it would an ideal dining room.

    @Cheryl: it's definitely unexpected.

    @Greensboro: it certainly is.

    @Mari: I wonder if it might have been placed there for the weekend as a just in case.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I wonder if they use a lot of candles and the fire extinguisher is there just in case.

  26. It looks so swanky, except for the fire extinguisher!!!

  27. I'm with Lowell: someone probably swept through saying, "Oh, we've got to get this put away," an then got called to put out another proverbial fire...I can't imagine this was where it was intended for an emergency.

  28. I like the statues sitting next to the extinguisher. It is an odd spot for an extinguisher, isn't it?
