2. Ride a Wave of Color

On the sunny upper deck, all-weather wicker chairs and a black iron table get a jolt of color from pillows that borrow their aqua shade from the beach breakers below. The pillows' coral print introduces the sea life theme that is played out in accessories throughout the house.

Get the look: The table and chairs are from Pottery Barn. The pillows are from Williams-Sonoma Home.
