Natural Color and Light

In the great room, reclaimed heart-pine floors show off their natural color. Interior designer, Linda Woodrum, chose to paint the standard pine flooring throughout the rest of the home. She says, "When you have beautiful antique heart pine, contrast it with paint and it'll look even better."

A brightly striped, woven rug defines a traditional family room. Around a brick fireplace are sofas in soft yellow chenille and a pair of rattan armchairs separated by a skirted round table. A generous coffee table displays a shell collection.
