Living Room

Atlanta-based interior designer Susan Bozeman anchored the living room with slipcovered furniture and plaid rugs that unite all of the colors, then added accents such as a cork table and custom pillows appliquéd with sea life. "We used sand tones, soft blues and greens, and a little pop of aqua on the lamps for contrast, so everything didn't seem the same," Susan says.

Rug: Elizabeth Eakins Inc. Louvered shutters: Hunter Douglas. Windows: JELD-WEN. Upholstered furniture: Lexington Home Brands. Drapery fabric: Sunbrella. Paint: Valspar.
