To give the open-flow living and dining rooms of an East Hampton, New York, house a light, relaxed air, designer Meg Braff used soft blues and whites, linens, cottons, and a seagrass rug. The sofa is upholstered in Dunemere Texture in Pale Blue by Hinson; the chair cushion fabric is Linea from Pollack. Walls and trim are painted Benjamin Moore's White Dove.

"With four young children, durability in the family room was key for the owners," Braff says. "The dark blue on the sofas, the leather ottoman, and the sisal rug are practically bulletproof." The sofa is upholstered in Hinson's Rawlston in Dunham Blue. Walls are covered in Africa Raffia in Key West Teal by Phillip Jeffries. The Farra Cocktail ottoman is by Hickory Chair; table lamp is by Christopher Spitzmiller.

"The printed fabric in the guest bedroom is whimsical," Braff says, "but the beige and aqua palette is very restful." Bed and curtain fabric is Lyford Background in Inca Gold on White, by China Seas. Wallpaper is Millennium Stripe in Beige and White, by First Editions. Ottomans are by Jonathan Adler.

The family room's sofa, from the Atelier Branca line, is upholstered in Le Gracieux's Regello in Bay on Soft Blue — but first Branca had the fabric outline quilted for extra coziness and durability. She bought the Renaissance Revival fruitwood, ebony, and ivory bookcase in Holland and filled it with old and new porcelain vases from her store. The carpet is from Shyam Ahuja.
To add youthful spirit to the dining room, Branca hung a trio of 1950s Venetian de Majo chandeliers from Craig Van Den Brulle over the Jacobean-style refectory table. Her mix of patterned textiles includes Bennison's Pandaranda on the banquette, Nobilis's Manoir in Pale Blue on painted Louis XV–style chairs.

A cool, collected feeling prevails in the room, with its soft, silvery colors and ebonized floor. To give the alcove a "jewel box feeling," Branca did the curtains and walls in Fortuny's Lucrezia in Pearl Grey on Antique White. A 1950s Italian art-glass table sits between a pair of 1940s Jansen bergères. The artwork above the bed is by Daniela Gullotta.
In a new Greenwich, Connecticut, house, designer Joe Nahem gave the dining room timeless allure with a hand-painted and embroidered silk wallcovering, Fromental's Lotus & Carp in Moon Gold.

Back-to-back sofas define intimate seating areas in the vast living room. They're upholstered in a Classic Cloth velvet, Marlowe in India Ink, that has "an iridescent quality," Nahem says. "The color changes depending on the light. One day it's gray, another day it's blue." A 1940s Robsjohn-Gibbings slipper chair is updated with boldly embroidered Carma from Bergamo. Walls are painted Farrow & Ball's Elephant's Breath.

Traditional and modern blend in the kitchen. Venetian-style windows let in light while preserving privacy. Stools by Paul Ferrante. Word Pendants by Alison Berger.

In the guest bedroom, a tracery of branches painted on the plaster walls softens the strong lines of the rustic beams and the iron bed. The trellis pattern on the canopy — Dedar Nomade in Magnolia — adds another dimension.
