Green is the go-to choice for adding a nod to nature in a room, but don’t discount its ability to add serenity with a calming seafoam hue reminiscent of warmer days.

Bold artwork commands attention when placed on a dark and dramatic wall. To keep the room from feeling too all-consuming, designer Connie Braemer opted for a mirrored coffee table and light, linen sofa.
