Within blocks of Main Street, this charming 1920’s basse block cottage is a gem in a quiet residential neighborhood. Forget Me Not is a restoration dream of an artist and her “jack-of-all-trades” husband. The house that Hemingway inspired… from his youthful days in Paris to his exotic travels in Africa, to his final years in Key West.
The Parisian inspired kitchen is a subtle taupe with pristine white trim. Local finds, such as the harvest table and many architectural details add unique interest to the dining area. Like the collections of Hemingway and his contemporaries in Paris, art plays an integral role at Forget Me Not. A wonderful collection of your hostess’s artwork, which includes watercolors, pastels, and drawings, finds a home here.
The British colonial retreat, reminiscent of an early 1900’s safari, maintains a genteel air. Isak Denisen, author of Out of Africa, wouldn’t have been more comfortable in Kenya than here. Energized by Hemingway’s safari adventures, the African bedroom is full of interesting antiques and travel souvenirs. The majestic queen sized four poster bed is dressed with custom linens. A fine collection of bisque birds nest in an antique armoire. Two overstuffed floral chairs comprise the sitting area. The adjoining bath is a rich, butter yellow with fresh white wainscoting. Draped with leopard inspired curtains, the antique claw footed tub (with shower) is stunning.
The front bedroom, Key West style, is all that is tropical. A perfect place to retire, refreshing lime sherbet walls beckon cool ocean breezes. The queen sized black iron bed is accessorized with an array of delightful linens. A collection of majolica and cottage ceramics fills the corner cupboard. The second bathroom, with shower, is fresh periwinkle and white. An antique stained glass window cleverly doubles as a mirror.
The mix and match cottage style comes alive in the third bedroom. The wicker daybed (with trundle) is in tip top country flair, overlaid with light, bright country florals.
