Living Room

Speak Easy: In a conversation space, furniture should feel cozy, not crammed in. Garden stools don't overwhelm the floor space and are just the right height for setting down a cocktail.

Choose Sides: Oversize floor lamps are a fresh alternative to the standard lamp-and-side-table pairing. Here, the fluted shades reference the quatrefoil shape of the coffee table.

Sheer Genius: Floor-to-ceiling draperies crafted in sheer indoor/outdoor fabric keep out the harsh afternoon sunlight and are impervious to fading over time.

All in the Details: A seaside locale calls for a subtle decorative coral accent, woven window shades, and white-painted planked ceiling.

Luxury Underfoot: An antique Turkish rug ties together the room's palette of green, gray, and ivory, and establishes a formal vibe to complement the clean lines of the sofa and armchairs.
