These homeowners want their bland living room to have a relaxed island feel.
Ric and Arvella Williams take an annual vacation to Hawaii and love the laid-back resort atmosphere. They would like to have that same relaxed island style reflected in their bland living room.
Host Lee Snijders pays the couple a visit and learns that cool coastal colors such as aqua blues and seafoam greens are favorites of these fun-filled vacationers. The new couch, love seat and chair with ottoman are a neutral tone, making them easy to incorporate into the new design; however, their large scale dwarfs the run-down coffee table. A breakfast counter doesn't get used since there is nowhere to sit; adding barstools would make it more functional. Large windows provide plenty of daylight but the space could use some additional lighting as well. The windows and plain entry will need to be addressed as well.
The design team brings a subtle tropical look to the living room on the $1,000 budget — here's how they do it:
Accessories and lighting — $492
Furniture — $215
Fountain — $150
Paint supplies — $75
Fabric and valance — $65
Project Total — $997
