Tropical Flair

Juxtaposing cottage comforts with island style, Linda accented the room with bold floral art and bamboo lamps. Unlike the soothing colors in the rest of the house, this one boasts vibrant red. "It's always fun to have one room in the house that's a little different," Linda says.

Tufted-back upholstered chairs flank a whitewashed pine console that provides display space. Bright artwork by Georgia native Cathie Parmelee adds festivity.
