Let’s Get Tropical

By Kate Riley March 3, 2020

Hello from Florida! I’ve been walking around Key West for two days surrounded by palm trees in so many varieties. Their gentle sway in the coastal breezes makes for constant music here in these islands. Who could ever grow tired of such a soothing song?

Tropical motifs have been popular for years, and how nice that palm leaves are still going strong in the design world. Channel your inner Golden Girl with these fun and fresh palm print products for the home.

First I want to say thank you so much to everyone who gave my new site Restless Art such a warm welcome! Words can’t express how I am so encouraged by your emails, comments, and Instagram follows! Thank you so much!

Yesterday I landed in Key West and I’m here for four days. I’m sharing some of what I’m seeing around town in my Instagram stories, I’m already head over heels in love with the porches with blue ceilings and colorful shutters on the homes here. Wow!

Today I’m biking all around the island and on Tuesday I’m driving up to Key Largo so let me know if there are any stops along the way I should see! I’d be so happy for you to send me your recommendations! Here’s a picture I shot on yesterday’s walk around town and this week’s favorite links!
