Classically Nautical

Throughout the house, Lynn stuck to a palette of turquoise, green, navy, and white. In the family room, Lynn took a classically nautical tack with a palette of navy and white. A striped rug in those shades, and a navy Ultrasuede sectional with crisp white piping, stand out against a shiplap-clad wall decorated with local nautical charts.

The Ultrasuede upholstery on the sectional sofa is from Clarence House. The striped pillows are by John Robshaw; the rug is from Crescent Carpet Importers.
