Once the room is emptied, the walls are brightened with white ragged on over the existing cream color. Next, the window and door trim are painted a vivid blue, and the first wall seen upon entering is covered in a treatment similar to the Florida home. The same paint, a damp rag and some glaze are used to create the soft blue wall treatment.
One of the elements that gives the Sam Robins-designed living room such interest is the contrast between the bright blue walls and the white slipcovered furniture. A red loveseat that's perfect for the bedroom is transformed with a readymade cream slipcover. A red Moroccan end table, beautiful mosaic coffee table, dark wood campaign chair, pictures of desert scenes and a large potted plant complete the stylish seating area.
Moroccan lanterns with colored glass hang by the French doors because Robin loves the flattering light from lanterns and candles.
