In this purple & white guest room bedroom from 1942, a lavender floral pattern sang out from the curtains, the bed, and the walls.

Other purple accents in the room added just a touch more color, from the padded headboard to the throw pillows on the chaise to the upholstered bench seat.

The wallpaper border around the wall at ceiling height had a scalloped edge, giving it more impact than a straight-edged border.

The furniture in the space set a traditional tone — the headboard frame, bedside table, dresser, shelving unit, desk and more — all were dark wood pieces, some with brass handles or pulls. 

The only other color specifically featured in the room was a fresh pastel yellow, which appeared on the chaise lounge, in a bouquet of flowers on the dresser, and was even referenced in the artwork over the bed.

It’s the little things that make a guest bedroom perfect — but then perfection is always a product of the little things. To get this 1940s room ready for visitors, it even offered all the little amenities of the era — luggage, luggage racks, radio, books, sewing kit, and brush.
