The master bedroom in this sunny beach house was a lesson for owners of vacation homes, where leftover furniture so often ends up.
In this vintage Jersey Shore residence, seen here back in 1972, talented interior designers made old belongings seem new again.
This country-style pink bedroom was snapped together with fresh color and pattern: a secondhand Venetian-style headboard was upholstered in flowers, and the bedspread ribanded in yet another floral that had white vertical ribbon stripes for emphasis.
The main wall of this pretty and bright space was made wonderfully vibrant by using a bold floral wallpaper that was filled with clouds of upscaled chrysanthemums in orange, pale pink, and yellow-green against a dark pink background.
Wicker furniture — two padded chairs and a small round glass-topped table — were all spraypainted the fresh dark shade of hemlock green.
On either side of the bed, simple three-level shelving units were repainted and antiqued in the same fresh grass green color that was on the carpet.
Each bedside table held a pale pink lamp with a pink shade, which was positioned perfectly in front of the white-shuttered window.
The room was a happy combination of the pinks, reds and yellows that flowed throughout the rest of this house, all under the same serene blue ceiling.
