I have a love of all architecture but especially art deco and mid-century modern.
Lovely photos! The Colony Hotel has every Deco element you would want in a 1935 building, including the pastel colours, the neon lights and the vertical blade. Only the umbrellas in the front give it away as a modern resort area.
I really dislike those umbrellas and they're in front of many of the hotels along South Beach. They really detract from the lovely Deco elements.
