A neutral palette and natural textures, including a cotton slipcovered sofa, a low-slung raw wood coffee table, and a woven sea grass footstool, create a living room that feels like an island escape. (Photo: Dominique Vorillon)
RUSTIC TABLE MATCHES CABINETRY. This Mediterranean kitchen features plenty of built-in modern conveniences. A six-foot-long tile backsplash along the wall slides open to reveal hidden appliances, including a can opener, toaster and coffeemaker. A built-in granite-topped desk acts as a working space with a built-in wine rack below. Plus, a third armoire doubles as storage for fine china and dishware.
