Room for Living

Casual and inviting, yet refined—that's how interior designer Tammy Connor describes the living room. Taking a cue from the coastal setting, she chose a muted palette of ocean blues and greens, then washed the cypress walls with a soft khaki. Roman shades and draperies were constructed from recycled sailcloth, adding history and visual interest.

Paint: Valspar; Upholstered furniture: Thomasville; Accent pillow fabrics: Robert Allen
