Cape Cod Summer HomeBeach Style Living Room, Boston
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Customization. In this home on Cape Cod, the designers created the sofa, coffee table and rug to fit the space. Then they tied everything together with a mix of custom pillows in a range of patterns, in an all-American color palette of red, white and blue.

For example, she wanted an antique flag for the space and tracked this one down herself. She also loves navy blue and wanted to use the color throughout the house. In here it shows up in the piping on the sofa, on the wool rug’s leather border and on the throw pillows. “The navy ties the whole house together,” the designer says. The flag also inspired some Americana style, which Violandi incorporated via fabric choices. “Robin’s the fabric guru, while I tend to focus on furniture,” Warner says. “It all starts with one fabric,” Violandi says. In this case it was the very traditional Ralph Lauren floral fabric seen on a throw pillow on the sofa, which wound up tying everything together. The other throw pillow fabrics that enliven the sofa include one with a more modern chevron pattern, from China Seas, and one with a subtly coastal knot pattern, from Robert Allen. All of the fabrics are either indoor-outdoor or were treated for durability.
