This book gives the true eclectic style of Key West. The photos are wonderful and give an accurate insight into the private homes and life style of this laid back, creative, elegant, charming community.....It gives one a look at the gracious stately old homes as well as the most impressive renovations of cottages in "old town". Book is filled with gorgeous full page photographs, beautifully, uniquely, Key West!

Format: Hardcover
It's hard to imagine how the natives, or the locals, live in places like Key West or New Orleans. These tropical outposts seem less mainstream than other parts of the USA; unique people put down roots in both of these sister cities. This lovely book gives a glimpse into homes of the poeple who live and work in Key West. It is just beautiful to see gracious living that is for real and not manufactured, but imagined and realized. Starting with the cover photo of the home of Michael Pelkey (and the ten pages of his home, and the ending photo of his kitchen countertop), you will be transported. The author writes with knowingness and sensitivity and respect for the inhabitants of, the history, and of present time Key West. This is a great inspiration book for your own lifestyle and decor, and a lovely arm chair vacation too. I would love the author Leslie Linsley, and the photographer Terry Pommett to come to New Orleans and do a sister book for us here (and bring Michael Pelkey along to lend his expert eye to the whole project).

Beautiful, well done. I recently purchased a vacation home in Fl and wanted some decorating ideas. This book is truly inspirational. I found myself ready to take another trip to Key West, although flipping through the pages makes you feel like you are on a vacation.

This is one small book for the price... I was expecting a larger table book and a fresher take on the Keys based on the cover. This book is a good representation of the old historic homes but does very little for the interior designer.

If you have never been to Key West you will certainly want to go after reading this book! This book is a lovely addition to a travel or design book collection and makes an interesting coffee table conversation piece; folks just have to thumb through it!

I was really looking forward to this book, a little let down once I received it. I thought there would be more pics like the cover : I was thinking beach chic but it was just different homes in Key West. I should have read the description more carefully. It is well written and beautiful photos- just not my style.

This is a beautifully illustrated book, but I was hoping for a much more relaxed and fun book. I live in South Florida and have an appreciation for the lifestyle of Key West and this book doesn't necessarily portray its truths. Perhaps a good coffee table book for some.

Format: Hardcover
I purchased this book after a trip to Key West as a way to extend the images and memories, and it has faithfully sent me back there each time I open it! The design and layout were carefully constructed to sketch in the details of who lives behind those marvelous palms and pastel shutters seen everywhere as you walk around Key West. The preponderance of vivid white and soothing swimming-pool turquoise in these homes and gardens creates a tropical sanctuary feel -- I just want to cozy up and jump into the pages each time. I cannot recommend this incomparable book highly enough. It's a quick trip to the Keys that sits and waits on your coffee table for you!
