Style Scheme: A Three Season Room with a Global Vibe

October 12, 2018

Hipster meets world-wanderer in a three-season room designed by Kendra Dufton of color theory Boston.

Bold tile from Popham Design was the jumping-off point for the design. The color evokes tropical waters, and its pattern lends interest without overwhelming. A commanding ottoman and pillows made with energetic fabrics by Gastón y Daniela add to the layered feel and global look.

Since a three-season room is often separate from the main living space, it’s an opportunity to create something fun and unexpected. A swing by Roberti Rattan is a whimsical centerpiece. Hop on and channel your inner child.

While many designers eschew ceiling fans, Dufton adds one to evoke tropical breezes.

Plants are a must here, and planters with a contemporary profile will host bold and modern varieties like lush monstera palms or plump succulents.
