Key West Beach House

{Beach House Tour} Key West Vacation Home

Today’s Beach House Tour is a Key West charmer which has literally stood the test of time.  The home has been decorated with soft and feminine hues of dusty blue, pale mauve, and yellow which create a light and airy feeling throughout.  The historic cottage even comes with wide honey-hued planks (swoon!) which envelope the home with warmth, antiquity, and craftsmanship.  We love how the designer incorporated antiques and modern furniture & fabrics to create the perfect balance of beach cottage comfortability.

What is your opinion of this Key West Vacation Home?

 

Key West Beach House

In 1846, what would have roared in today as a Category 5 hurricane (think Katrina) pummeled Key West, Florida, leaving only eight of the island’s 600 houses standing. The unassuming yellow clapboard cottage with a long, sloping metal roof, black louvered shutters, and a white picket fence is one of those resilient rarities that survived the storm.  ~ Traditional Home

More than any other space, the master bedroom says retreat. “It’s light and ethereal, like being in a cloud,” says Richesin of the sky-blue room with a cloud painting behind the bed. But despite the vacation home’s sense of airy escape, it remains rooted in terra firma–grounded, charmingly, in history.  ~ Traditional Home
