Designer Jim Howard created this romantic living room in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida for a couple who wanted their new home to express the feeling of a cozy beach home and a rustic Tuscan villa.  As you can see, he executed those concepts beautifully.  Together, the powder blue and cream color scheme evokes the feeling of sand and sea, while the wrought iron candelabras and dramatic scalloped valances provide a rustic Italian tone.

The fabrics on the upholstery are luxurious linens that create an inviting ambiance, while still maintaining a casual feel.  The overstuffed rolled arm chairs, with their adorable kick pleats, provide just the right touch of comfort and elegance.

This lively tropical living room is full of personality that we just can’t get enough of!  The neutral walls and the white slipcovers are a fantastic backdrop that sets the stage for the bright accent colors to really shine.  The symmetrical layout makes the room easy on the eyes, and allows you to really enjoy the small and lively details of the space.  The great weathered board decor, the zesty tangerine side tables, and even the cube ottomans, all play a part in bringing this room together.  Never be afraid to use bold and adventurous colors you love in ways that you’ll see most often!  This tropical palette of orange and sea foam green infuses any coastal living room with energy and imagination.

What better way to wake up and enjoy a cup of coffee than on a three season porch?  This porch breakfast nook inspiration board to help you put together a quaint and cozy cottage look.  The hues of blue, cream, and white make for an easy-on-the-eyes palette that will blend right into the summer sky.  Wicker pieces can help create a seamless transition from the inside to the great outdoors.  Rattan is a natural material that is eco-friendly and durable.  We suggest this look for a covered or three season porch only, because natural rattan is not meant to be in the direct elements.

Adding cushions to your wicker pieces is an essential accessory for comfort and a perfect opportunity to infuse color.  From this inspiration board, you can choose either the solid dusty blue fabric for the cushions or the delicate floral depending on the look you want.  The rug is made of polypropylene so it’s a perfect fit for an area with high traffic and the occasional sprinkles.  Don’t forget to add plants and flowers to really make the space really feel like part of the outdoors!
