Architecture on Florida's Key West reflects the diverse and colorful nature of those who have shaped this remote island's character: the grand classical homes of sea captains from New England, the cobbled-together wooden dwellings of ships' carpenters, the humble but charming cottages of cigar makers from Cuba. Today's equally varied population of artists, writers, and political figures contributes to that heritage by designing interiors and landscape that complement the vibrant tropical location, quirky isolationist tradition, and relaxed atmosphere. In "Key West: A Tropical Lifestyle," author Leslie Linsley presents the true character of this unique American place in twenty-two residences. Engaging anecdotes drawn from interview with homeowners, designers, and architects and lush, full-color photographs reveal the historic and contemporary interiors and gardens. Reflecting the style and personalities of their owners, these house simultaneously respect and extend a distinctive legacy.
