The blue walls here say Caribbean Sea. This hue is an inexpensive way to achieve an island feel, even in a room with many traditional elements. The repurposed sofa and chairs are on trend and have long been a hallmark of Caribbean-inspired design. Tip: This bold black and white striped sofa (same basic style as LT sofa) would make a statement in any home. It works here because it anchors a large wall — a key element in a well-designed space.
