Did you choose these colors Olga? This is amazing. I would love to mimic the entire set up in my soon to be new home. Do you think I can achieve this? I too love the bamboo shades, I'm looking to keep the cabin feel, but incorporate a more modern feel to accommodate our day to day lives with lots of white, love that olive green! Also can you suggest outside colors for this home that would compliment the inside..whites, mochas, deep greens..? Thank you

There is a chair rail around the room which is a natural transition point between colors. White is Ben Moore Navajo white.

I have been putting sisal in clients' homes for 10 years. Never heard of anybody not loving it. I sold 8 sisal area rugs just last month. It is great for both area rugs and wall to wall applications but for a wall to wall it requires a very good installer and something tells me yours may not be the right person for a sisal job. Open any decorating magazine from the last 5 years and you will see sisal everywhere - from country cottages to Park Avenue apartments. Hope this helps. Olga

I love the idea of green paint on the back of your built-in bookcase. Another way to go could be with an interesting solid color but heavily textured wallpaper such as grasscloth. If you go with paint choose a high gloss finish. Best, Olga

Denim is very comfortable - but it fades from the sun and salt water and soon takes on a dated, worn appearance...
...which is why most designers, when decorating beach homes, stick with white or natural denim or canvas - which doesn't have such issues.

Cotton twill is the best fabric for a beach house. You can toss the slipcovers in the wash anytime. Sunbrella fabrics, as practical as they are, have that synthetic feel to them, which does not feel good on the skin.

Wow Great Place
Hunter Douglas offers the Provenance woven woods up to 96" wide. Beyond that, you need a two on one headrail (or even a three on one) which can be manufacturedup to 144" wide. Some of the weaves of the Provenance blinds only go to 72" wide, but most are available up to 96". If you do the two on one headrail, just make sure the "split" happens over a natural break in the window. Nothing worse than seeing a gap in the blinds on a great big pane of glass!

What is the name and brand of the paint color? It is beautiful.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kit Pollard added this to Where Would You Put the Tree?
Great windows, but all of this perfect symmetry makes it tough to figure out the best tree spot. I might actually move the sofa all the way to the other side of the room, where the photo was taken from, to place the tree where the sofa is now, while preserving the organization.
Fan-tastic: Embraced by budget and green-minded consumers, the ceiling fan is another fixture that has found its way to multiple rooms of the home. Most fans come with operational lighting and a range of styles to complement other fixtures. Tip: Purchase a fan with a remote control so you can operate the light intensity and fan speed from any area of the room.
The idea of a three-season sun room appealed to many, as did the easy-to-clean slipcovered furniture.
Okay, I promise not to keep harping on islander fans, but they're the rage these days, and the more information shared, the better. Patios and sunrooms seem to showcase this style best because the natural material on the fan coordinates gorgeously with a view of nature. I like to layer the texture and tone of the fan with other elements in the room. In this example, the designer brought the same bamboo-ish, woven look in with window shades.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Treat your Home to the Tropics
Kick off your tropical transformation with throw pillows and other accessories, like lampshades, in patterns that remind you of hot, far-off getaways. A natural sisal rug works well to pull the look together.
Shoshana Gosselin added this to Warm Up a Sunroom Year-Round
A white ceiling can feel cold in winter, so visually offset it by installing a ceiling fan with blades in a deep wood tone. The fan is also functional. Changing the direction of the rotation from where it is set for the summer months forces the warm air down into the room rather than out through the roof. Make sure you use the right size for your room. If you're unsure, a professional can help.
With all the options available today, choosing a rug for your home can become confusing. For rug with high durability, opt for a sisal carpet with a loop pile. Increasing in popularity, these rugs are typically made from natural fibers but can now be found in synthetic materials. Synthetic sisal is much easier to clean and doesn’t stain easily. From the variety of colors, choose a darker shade to better mask dirt and spills.
Whether on King's aloha shirts, the seat cushions at his in-laws' home or the artwork and arrangements around his own home, patterns with florals (birds of paradise, plumerias) and the ubiquitous palm tree are widely used in almost every interior frame in The Descendants; they're popular in the tropical clime of Hawaii.
Cathy Lara added this to Sunrooms Shine in Different Ways
Like the one in Brazil, this plantation-style sunroom looks like it also serves as a second living room or sitting area.
Laura Fenton added this to White Slipcovers for Pure Practicality
White is even a good choice for an indoor-outdoor space like this sunroom by Olga Adler — just be sure to make family members remove muddy shoes.
Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: Tropical
Style Secret: Ceiling FansSay what you will about the much-maligned ceiling fan — anyone who lives in a hot climate will tell you that it's a near necessity. It helps to keep air circulating and replicates the feel of surfside winds blowing through. And few sounds are more soothing than its gentle, monotonous hum.Easy does it: Worried about finding a sufficiently stylish fan? Don't overthink it. Choose one with an overtly tropical design, such as this wide-paddle version, or a streamlined model that blends into the ceiling. And remember that when it's whirring, you'll hardly notice the blades at all.More 'So Your Style Is':Traditional | Arts & Crafts | Hollywood Regency | Rustic | Old World | French Country | Transitional | Contemporary | Midcentury Modern | Industrial | Eclectic | Coastal | Cottage | Preppy | Art Deco | Southwestern | Japanese
3. Find inspiration. While not too long ago you had to buy all those magazines, tear out the one or two pictures that inspired you and then toss the magazine away, you can now just browse Houzz and save inspirational images in an ideabook. And while before you had to keep all of those bits of paper in a folder somewhere ("Where are those clippings? I know they're around here somewhere"), you can now e-mail a link to a photo or collection of photos to your architect.Which brings us to this wonderful ceiling. Mike and Leann would love a tall, vaulted ceiling. While browsing Houzz, Leann came across this photo and sent me the link. She loves the sense of space the ceiling creates and the white painted wood finish. So if the budget (there's that pesky budget issue again) and other issues allow, we'll develop a ceiling similar to this one.
Rebecca Heane added this to Elements of Classic Coastal Style
Natural flooring, such as coir, seagrass and sisal, make great rugs. This rug looks very effective against the dark timber floor. It would be very easy to give this room the classic coastal treatment — simply swap the green paint for deep blue, change the cushions for stripes to complement the wall color and add a few well-chosen accessories. That coffee table looks perfect for a display of shells and coral.
Culpepper Carpets & Interiors, Inc. added this to 8 Ways to Enjoy the Purity of Cotton at Home
Slipcovers. Cotton is a proven choice for slipcovers, as it washes well and has a casual and comfortable feel. Use a nonbleach detergent and cold water if the fabric has a pattern or color to prevent fading. Cotton will shrink in the dryer, and pure cotton wrinkles easily, so air drying is often the best bet.
Becky Harris added this to 21st-Century Looks for Shabby Chic Fans
Mix in earthy tones. Browns, greens and tans give these Shabby Chic–style sofas and chairs a more contemporary look.Tell us: Were you a fellow Shabby Chic show addict? Remember when Ashwell decorated J.Lo's restaurant during the height of "Bennifer?" Please leave a comment below and let us know how you incorporate the look in your own fresh way.
