In the new living area, Nate uses grass-cloth-covered walls in a soft shade of putty ("to warm things up"), a cream sofa with tropically bright pillows, and a pale blue ceiling and blinds ("to keep everything from being too brown"). A carved Indonesian chair—one of the Bassetts' finds—sits comfortably next to a modernist-inspired zebrawood coffee table. Nate uses the bamboo floors as inspiration for the rest of the living room. He adds lots of textures such as a marble-topped side table and a linen sofa.
