This is a shot of a typical Key West, Florida, residence, with a porch at ground level and a veranda above and, of course, encroaching foliage offering lush coloring and soft shade. Driving around KW, I noticed that many porch and veranda ceilings were painted sky blue, which I thought was a cool idea.
