Calhoun covered the seat of this swinging daybed on the back porch with a favorite tablecloth. The pillows are from Anthropologie and Roberta Roller Rabbit. The swordfish was found in an antiques shop.
A vaulted ceiling of cypress treated with a lime-acid wash creates a loftlike look, while rattan furniture from Palecek's Presidents Collection imparts a natural tone. "The room has a relaxed island feel — less Palm Beach, more Bahamas or Jamaica," she said. Pillows in Roberta Roller Rabbit fabrics.
The living room fireplace is made of concrete embedded with stones, shells, and barnacles. "I've collected them from all over the world," Calhoun said.
The living room sports upholstery in a rich grape color and eye-catching patterns. Perennials' indoor-outdoor Canvas Weave on the furniture is durable enough to hold up to Calhoun's three dogs and wet swimsuits.
The bar is original; Calhoun had it faux painted to resemble pecky cypress. Stools are from Fran's Wicker.
Mac Fabrics' Hip print on the family room sofas "hides a multitude of sins," Calhoun said. The coffee table is vintage, and the lamps are repurposed baskets.
The master bedroom looks out onto the pool, and when the pocket doors are pulled back, "we feel like we're sleeping in a tent," Calhoun said. The four-poster bed, with its gauzy panels, plays up a Caribbean vibe. "I didn't want a fussy canopy, so I just added Pottery Barn sheers." A painting by Roberto Juarez echoes the tropical garden.
A guest room is filled with antique furniture. Checks wallpaper by Kent-Bragaline adds color and texture to a small room.
In the powder room, an antique sideboard became a vanity. Walls are covered in Phillip Jeffries's Seagrass grass cloth.
