Gather Round Spot

A big ottoman is the gather-round spot in the living room; chairs swivel so that guests can turn to fix their gaze on the incoming tide; bar stools line up at a kitchen counter as if awaiting root-beer floats. And everywhere you look in this relax-and-enjoy house are the colors of the sky and sea, from turquoise tea towels and aqua Ball jars to a chrome-trimmed range reminiscent of a '50s Chevrolet.
