Nod to Nautical
An elegant living room with a nautical edge has a distinctly relaxed feel thanks to thoughtful accessories and colors. Architectural details on both the canvas white walls and matching ceiling give the space a crisp air, while blue striped overstuffed armchairs, a model ship, and a sprinkling of shells bring out the room's seafaring personality. The radial mullion pattern on the windows repeats in the medallion design on the fireplace surround and in the built-in cabinetry. This attention to detail, plus timeless accents such as the Ming Dynasty vases and grandmother clock, finish the room with a formal flair.
