Passport to Style: Key West

Perfect Ten, Tylar's Treasure Key West Living Room Full

Happy Sunday!  According to the calendar, summer doesn’t end until September 23rd, so there’s plenty of time to enjoy!  Grab your overnight bag, sunscreen and passport, we’re headed to Key West, Florida (USA).  Key West is the southernmost city in the Continental United States, located 129 miles southwest of Miami, Florida, and 106 miles north-northeast of Havana, Cuba.  Cuba, at its closest point, is 94 miles south.  Key West is a small seaport city, total area 7.4 square miles and on the dividing line between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico.  It was also a hideaway for authors Ernest Hemingway and Tennessee Williams.  Key West is divided into four distinct areas: Old Town, Casa Marina, Mid-Town and New Town.  With a tropical climate, similar to the Caribbean islands, the bright-colored historic homes (1886-1912) dotting Old Town called conch are wood-framed one or two-story structures built on foundation piers above the ground, with metal roofs, horizontal wood siding, and covered porches, attributed to immigrants from the Bahamas.

Perfect Ten, Tylar's Treasure Key West Living Room Mid Bright

Some Key West design elements are bright colors, clean lines and minimal clutter with the focus on bringing the outdoors in as much as possible through the inclusion of large windows with minimal coverage and vibrant color selections that mimic the sand, sun and sea.  It’s typical to see white furnishings with pops of bright-colored pillows or throws, louver shutters, natural fabrics, coastal art and accessories such as seashells, sailboats or sailfish in this laid-back tropical seaside oasis.

Tylar’s Treasures newest release Key West Collection at Perfect Ten is a tropical inspired living room collection, available for 50% off from September 1-15 (it’s out early).  The collection includes aqua blue, lime green and crisp white animated rowboat chair and love seat, table lamps with sailboat decal, painted white coffee table and end table, paisley vase with lime twigs, turquoise bowl with floral, sailboat wall art and ceiling fan.  To complete the styling, I incorporated nautical oars, jars filled with sand and shells, seashell art, potted palms, turquoise candle tray, shell rug, bench with aqua toss pillows, captain lanterns and Sway’s mason jar beach vignette with palm tree and animated bird & fish (@Fantasy Gacha Carnival 8/12-9/12).   Tylar’s motto for laid back lifestyle printed on the pillows is “Sandy Toes & Salty Kisses,” so when transforming your home with the Florida Keys look use a vibrant color palette and remember “All you need is LOVE and the BEACH!”

Making an entrance!

Entry Hall

They say you only have one chance to make a first impression.  The same applies to your home as it’s a reflection of your personality and style.  A great foyer serves a dual purpose, first function and then an inviting space to greet your guest.  I styled a ‘under the sea’ themed summer beach house highlighting a few key elements to make a greeting entry including: table/cabinet, mirror, chair, empty baskets for keys, newspaper or mail, baskets of pillows or blankets for the porch, potted plants, lighting, and some fun decorative accessories.  One could also add a collection of family photos or coat rack/umbrella stand.  Don’t over look the importance of the first impression of your home.

Lemonade Summer!

Lemonade Beach HutI’ve been trying to write this blog post for little over a week but real life kept getting in the way.  My plan was to highlight some Trompe Loeil Kiya beach shacks that were available at June Collabor88 and the interiors, unfortunately the new July round of C88 started yesterday.  Since I styled the beach shacks interiors and have photos, I would suggest if you like any previously released items from C88 hop over to the brands main store.  I also wanted to share a few more Perfect Ten discounted items from the July round, available July 1st-15th.

Lemonade Hut- DeckOn the front deck of the Trompe Loeil Kiya beach hut is the adorable Dancing Pineapple from MishMish lounging on the Teebrook’s Cubbyhole Lemonade Summer Adirondack chair with umbrella and tray table, discounted item at Perfect Ten.  Yellow, ocean blue and touches of red is the color palette throughout the summer cabin.  The color trend in 2015 is blue and bridges all seasons with different tonalities.

Lemonade Hut- Flip FlopsEasy living is a necessary for summer fun!  Finishing Touches Potted Beach Sign (Sun & Surf) and LISP Summer Punch Vintage Deck Chairs are the perfect choice for summer days.

Lemonade Inside BarAs we move into the one room cabin, ocean blue/teal and yellow are the dominate colors with a nod to nautical decor with Cheeky Pea Boat Wine Shelf,  Sway’s Ahoy anchor stools (texture change seat), Dreamscapes Art Gallery Ahoy Console Table, Floorplan Spool Bar Table (texture change base) and Hanging Oars.

Lemonade Inside Rowboat ChairOn the other side of the space the seafarers theme continues with the Hearth & Home Old Rowboat Chair (on sale @ Perfect Ten) and Dreamscapes Art Gallery Ahoy captain ship wheel.

Lemonade Inside Whale Coat RackHaving a whale of a good time in the cabana with Sway’s Whale Coatrack and Second Spaces Life’s A Beach Shelf resonates with vibrant blues and greens.

Lemonade Hut- Outside Back Deck FlamingoOn the back deck, Dreamscapes Art Gallery Beach Lounge with fire pit has several fun whimsical summer print.  The Mustard Seed copper flamingo beach welcome sign greets guests.

Lemonade Hut- Outside Back DeckLastly, Tylar’s Treasure Shipshape Coastal Light collection includes boat seat, table and lighthouse decor with animations (dance, kisses, couple/single sits) 50% off at Perfect Ten.  Completing the scene is Free Bird Beach Towel Rack and LISP Summer Punch Vintage Deck Chairs.  Hope you have a nice summer and enjoy the rays!
