This living room evokes the nautical with a red, white and blue color palette. A white tongue-and-groove ceiling looks down upon a high-gloss red hardwood floor, while blue-and-white striped wallpaper lines the walls. Dark Colonial furniture, avian accessories and exotic floral upholstery are a nod to tropical style.
