Bright + breezy tropical living room
In this Wellington, Florida living room, walls are painted Farrow & Ball’s Teresa’s Green. Interior design by Bill Brockschmidt and Courtney Coleman. Brockschmidt calls the look “Anglo-Caribbean-Florida-traditional.” He adds: “The front door opens to the living room, and when you walk in your eye is drawn immediately to the large ebonized sofa table and the overscale lantern, then to the pair of white urns—and then the room dissolves and spreads out in an orderly, symmetrical fashion.” Says Coleman: “We kept all the solid upholstered pieces to the perimeters of the living room, so the big sofa in that batik-y fabric is the focal point.”

The sofa is covered in a Jasper print, Remy in blue/brown. Throw pillows pick up the coral of the dining room wall. A Gothic lantern from Circa Lighting hangs over a custom sofa table that divides the room into two seating areas. Near the dining room, a pair of upholstered banquettes are "perfect for conversation at cocktail parties," says Brockschmidt. The white resin urns, from Mecox Gardens, add a vertical dimension to the room.
