Properly Layered

The living room benefits from the polish of E. Dale Trice's design by being comfortably layered, even though the end result has a peaceful effect. A flanged edge on the cushion introduces blue as an accent color. A burlap-covered pendant light hangs over the improvised window seat, filling in the empty vertical space.

Nautical Details

A dolphin-shaped boat cleat attaches the ropes of the daybed swing on the front porch, providing a charming reward for the observant visitor. The highly textured barkcloth fabric on the cushions speaks of a bygone era of Old Florida style.
