The wing chair in designer Tyler Karu's Maine home is the star of the living room with its bold stripes of red, yellow, blue and green. The chair was reupholstered with an L.L. Bean blanket. The space draws on all the details you'd expect to see in a coastal home — nautical prints for wall art, bright white walls, even a rug with a wave pattern. What you don't see are accents in watery shades of blue, which makes the design feel more fresh and modern.
