Designer Troy Beasley sets the scene of this Naples, Fla., living room with neutral textured wallpaper and tiled flooring in the same hue.

Powder-blue accent chairs and accessories are brought in to echo the stunning view of the ocean.

We caught up with Troy to find out how the living room design came together.

Neutral Sophistication

Textured wallpaper and tile flooring in the same creamy hue are used to set the scene for this neutral living room. To bring color to the space, designer Troy Beasley adds powder-blue armchairs and side tables. A round area rug in a graphic blue and brown pattern defines the seating area and adds a mod touch to the room.

Living With a View

Neutral draperies soften the picturesque window without distracting from the view of the ocean. A long console makes for a cool, contemporary TV stand and provides plenty of storage.

Curved Furnishings

Organically shaped stacking coffee tables are custom-designed by Troy. The chandelier mimics the lines of the tables, adding to the contemporary feel of the living room.

Mod Furnishings

Furniture, like the egg chairs and Lucite side table, lend a mod vibe to the space. The chairs are given a timeless appeal with neutral fabric.

Describe the homeowners' wish list.

The homeowners wanted a uniquely styled modern interior with a custom look and to convert the dining room into a bar and entertainment area.

What were the homeowners' design problems?

There were elements of the room that the homeowner initially didn't want to change; however, to get the look they would be happy with, overall extensive work needed to be done. The ceiling was reshaped to give it a new flair, we redirected lighting and created points of interest on the interior walls.

What was your biggest obstacle in this space?

Our biggest obstacle was communicating with the homeowners who lived and worked out of state. To overcome the distance, we produced a unique set of drawings and complete set of documents that included sketches of the finished room, samples, etc.

How does the end result match up with your original vision?

The original concept included a fireplace on one wall, but the homeowners decided they didn't want it. Everything else was how we envisioned the project.

What lessons did you learn?

The value of good documents and good communication. We do this as standard practice anyway, but this project was a good example of how critical it is to the overall success of the design.

What are the "hidden gems"?

We designed an organically stacked coffee table because we couldn't find anything to fit the style of the room. When you can't find it, design it to fit your theme.
