The recent make-up between the U.S. and Cuba has increased intrigue with all things from the largest island in the Caribbean.

Bring Havana Home
Intrigued by the romance? Here’s some inspiration to add some Cuban style to your space.
One of Cuba’s most famous residents Ernest Hemingway had a distinctive style in so many ways including Finca Vigia, his home outside of Havana. Designed by Spanish architect Miguel Pascual y Baguer and built in 1886, it was purchased by Hemingway in 1940 for $12,500. Now a museum, it shows an interesting rif on Out of Africa and Spanish Colonial flare. Taxidermy fans take note.
