Bright colors, floral patterns, and cottage styles are all design choices associated with the Florida Keys. Key West, one of the most famous tropical islands in the world, embodies the ideas of the Florida Keys while also presenting its own style and culture. In Leslie Linsley's Key West Cottages and Gardens, lovers of the Key West architectural and design style will get a chance to look at beautiful photos of tropical homes as well as learn tips for living on the island from Leslie and residents.

Key West is home to a year-round population of about 35,000 with over one million travelers visiting throughout the year. Leslie's intimate interviews with residents allow readers a peek into what Key West cottage living is really like, even some of the potential challenges. The interviews and photos in this book will show how people live in all different styles of cottages. Whether you're a local who has made Key West home and want to learn new tips for living in your smaller, outdoor-friendly space or a tourist who loves the feeling and visuals of the Key West lifestyle, this book has you covered.
