Put It in Neutral

The living room is the first space guests see when they enter the home. Its picturesque view—of the pool and canal beyond—is framed by curtains and a scalloped valance. Shades of blue, inspired by the floral fabric on the pillows, are mixed in with neutral pieces like the sofas and rug to keep the color from becoming too overwhelming.

Get the Look: The sofa and chair are from Lee Industries. The curtain and valance fabric is by Kravet.
