A Key West Conch House to die for.....

Summer is one of my favorite times of the year.  Even though it is extraordinarily hot this season, I just love it.  Why?  Because all of my favorite magazines have spreads on fabulous lakeside and seaside cottages.  And I just recently picked one up at the airport – that was a WOW.  The June/July issue of  Traditional Home magazine is to die for.  This is the first time I‘ve read this magazine and by the time I was halfway through it, I filled out the subscription card because I want this magazine every month.

While I am a die-hard onsite consumer, I have not (nor do I plan to ever) abandoned traditional print magazines.  There is nothing better than reading the articles and flipping through the pages of a glossy magazine…studying the photographs for every little detail.  I love cutting out my favorite pages and putting them on my vision board for inspiration...in my mind, a computer screen will never replace the glossy magazine.  There are so many amazing things to highlight in this issue – I will have to absorb it in stages…but for now…here is round one of my favorite selections.  This is a story about a cottage renovation on a classis conch house in Key West....All I have to say is AMAZING:


I'm not sure what my favorite part of this room is...
I think the design on the chairs dropped into the carpet.  WOW!


I am absolutely mesmerized by this carpet.



Love the print on the bench. And the mirrored bedside tables.  




Can you imagine waking up in this room?  You wouldn't want to get out of bed.


This is the guest room.  The blending of the yellow and blue is yummy looking!


This place is just incredible. Look at the little guest cottage.  I wouldn't want to leave....

Wow! I can't fathom having such a perfect gorgeous home. I agree with you about magazines. I still love mine, look forward to them coming in the mail and always look for new ones at the grocery store.

Donna - I agree! I think the guest house at the pool is amazing. I would be the house guest that doesn't leave. I am in Key West regularly - I would love to see this house in person!!

Hi! Just found your blog from SimpleDaisy! And oh my.....when I saw your aqua bowl, I almost died. I have one almost just like that...it was my mom's. Prolly 70 yrs old! And then? I scroll down to see your salad? And I have that exact same salad bowl. From Pier One. Bought one as a birthday gift for my best bud and loved it so much that I went back and bought one for myself!! Cannot wait to read thru all of your blog...I'm a crazy cruisin' chick who spends 3-4 months of the yr on a sailboat!
Turquoise, lime green and yellow are my colors too! So funny...........!
