Florida Frame of Mind

jk kling entry

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that I spend the weekend at home binge-watching the new Netflix drama, Bloodline. It is SO good and the scenery is stunning. The premise revolves around a family in Islamorada in the Florida Keys. The mother and father are played by Sissy Spacek and Sam Shepherd who own a beautiful and charming oceanfront inn. Their children each have their own issues which are set off when the prodigal returns to celebrate his parents’ 45th anniversary of owning their little jewel box hotel. I am about three quarters of the way through the series and I have to say that it all unfolds in such an intriguing way. I can’t wait to see what happens next!

Thanks to the show, I am now dying to visit the Florida Keys. If you’ve been, would you recommend it? Naturally, with my new desire to go to Florida, I’ve had chic, beachfront spaces on my mind. While I am pretty sure that this beautiful beach home designed by J.K. Kling is actually in Palm Beach (which I love!), it is still inspiring in my new Florida Frame of Mind. Loads of Quadrille fabrics and wallpaper, dark wood finishes, natural fiber rugs, bamboo details, plenty of bright colors, and several pretty bedrooms to ensure you’ll always have a long line of friends ready to come for a weekend visit– what could be better?

Here’s the trailer for Bloodline, if you’re curious. If you’ve watched it, what do you think? Are you completely hooked like I am?

  1. Off topic, you did a post on your recent visit to Napa and asked for suggestions. I can’t find it on your site. Can youplease tell me the name of the post? Planning a trip for my birthday soon and need s ok me ideas 🙂 Thanks in advance!

  2. Go to the Keys! You’ll love it. My mother lives in Islamorada and we travel there every Thanksgiving. I read somewhere that there is a new luxury hotel opening up this year. Let me know if you want some reccos for restaurants and such. xoox

  3. The Keys are lovely for a beach getaway. We stayed on Key West. It’s enjoyable – great restaurants & resorts (we stayed at a Marriott resort & the suite was huge & lux). The beaches are beautiful & so Is the crystal turquoise water. Only downside to Florida is the humidity. The Keys are a longer drive from Miami than it appears, so keep that in mind. If you want a shorter trip go to Key Biscayne (right off of Miami). We just went & it was gorgeous. (The Ritz there is incredible!)

  4. I grew up going to Plantation Key every year for a month during the summer. I loved it so much. It used to have a relaxed island feel similar to Hawaii. I went back a few years ago and it is built up, but I have so many amazing memories of my summers there it haunts me. I’m trying to get my husband to go back soon, but there are seriously no direct flights from San Diego. Plantation Key is approximately 2 hours by car from Miami.

  5. The Keys are fabulous. It’s all about the drive from Miami to Key West! It takes a while but it’s not the same if you take the flights from Miami to Key West. Islamorada is beautiful and a quieter place to stay than in KW.
    We also love Marco Island and you can visit there and then take the fairy to KW.
    There is a day trip to the Dry Tortugas from KW that is beautiful as well.
    Enjoy!

  6. Gotta love Netflix! I just discovered it a few months ago. Our family has been subscribing for a few years! Anyway, I want to check out Bloodline. I started with American Horror Stories and am currently running thru House of Cards as fast as I can. I’d love the Keys. Our family usually goes to St. Pete beach.

  8. So glad you suggested the show… I started it the day I read this post and now have two episodes to go! I’ve lived in Naples for eight years now and the Keys are one of my favorite getaways. Key West is my favorite… so many charming B&Bs, great shops, outstanding restaurants, and sailing and kayaking galore. It has a little something for everyone.
