Houzz at a GlanceWho lives here: Interior designer Alex Fulton; her husband, Jeff; daughters Isla, 11, and Violet, 10; and their “dog daughters,” Daisy the hairy Jack Russell terrier and Moo the Italian greyhoundLocation: Springlands, Blenheim, in the wine region of Marlborough, New Zealand Size: 2,906 square feet (270 square meters;) 4 bedrooms, 2 bathroomsThe color blue was the inspiration for the formal living room. It started with the sofa, which was a bargain find online. “We loved the variations of blue it had,” Fulton says. The walls were then painted in Dance Floor by Dulux to complement the sofa — Fulton wanted a bright hue that would also add an element of depth to the room, to balance the high ceiling. “I knew the right hue immediately, but I put three in front of Jeff and the girls to get them involved in the process,” Fulton says. “Surprise, surprise, they all picked my blue!” White paint — on the window frames, baseboards, fireplace and ceiling — helps make the blue pop. Paint by Dulux: Dance Floor (blue) and Mt. Aspiring Half (white)

Sort the seatingIt’s always a good idea to make some areas ‘standing room only’ – by the bar or buffet table, for example. Having these areas forces people to mingle. Of course, there has to be a good amount of places to sit, too. Stackable stools are party godsends. Outside of soiree season, they take up very little space, but unstack them and, in an instant, you have two or three more seats for your guests. Or consider Moroccan-style pouffes, which up the style stakes of a room and are easy to move around. Throw in a few floor cushions for good measure – they’re ideal for accommodating unexpected guests.After a statement chair? Browse the brilliant choices in the Houzz Shop
