The lessons we learn from Rear Window is three-fold. First, don't spy on your neighbor. Second, maintain privacy inside your home and yard to prevent unwanted surveillance by others. Third, create your own private backyard paradise to enhance your living experience but also to prevent wandering eyes from the neighbors. In that regard I thought it would be fun to look at some great scenes from the rear windows in houses in Key West.
If you are a regular reader of my blog you may realize I often tell readers the first thing they will see when entering a home, and its probably not a sofa or a painting. It's probably going to be the view at the rear of the house. If it's done correctly, the viewer will be drawn to see what's outside because that is where we spend so much of our leisure life. Really well thought out homes allow owners and guest to move between the indoors and outdoors with ease. The photographs above show many examples of homes with doors and windows placed to allow the views in. Unlike Jame's Stewart's character who hides in the dark of his apartment avoid being seen by his neighbor, the homes I included today have no such privacy issues.
