"I don't feel confident when it comes to picking things out," says Sandy Henry. "But at the same time, I wouldn't want to live in a space that doesn't reflect my personality. I really just needed a push in the right direction."

That push came in the form of friend and Cottage Living Style Editor Heather Chadduck, who helped Sandy decorate her open living and dining room.

Inspired by Sandy's favorite pair of khaki pants, Heather created a neutral color scheme of cream, taupe, and brown, accented with soft blues. Simple stripes, soft floral patterns, and a mix of natural materials―such as sea grass, wood, and bamboo―have a warm casual feel.
