An iron bed is given new life with a fresh coat of paint and a mix of vintage-chic linens that complements the room’s furnishings.

A cozy reading nook incorporates vintage finds, including a French restoration-style side table, purchased at an antiques center in upstate New York.

A painted, period-appropriate Windsor side chair cozies up to an antique table. A folk painting on the chair’s crest rail depicts a scene reminiscent of the Blog Cabin 2011 property, prior to renovation.

A south-facing window streams sunlight into the space and offers views of Mobjack Bay. A recessed door leads out to the home’s second-floor balcony.

Pops of color are provided by ruffled silk and handwoven Florentine scroll pillows.

The first morning step is softened by a hooked wool rug in quiet, muted tones that complement — rather than upstage — bedding.

In keeping with a design theme of reuse and repurpose, architectural salvage — in this instance, a vintage fan bracket — stands in place of a traditional headboard.

A Victorian corner shelf in a deep, rich mahogany finish provides a spot to display curios and candles. Intricately carved fretwork adds a decorative flourish in an otherwise modestly appointed room.

Budget design trick: An ornate frame can stand on its own or showcase a smaller framed art piece.

Storage space in the room includes a closet and an antique oak dresser, which doubles as a nightstand. A vintage sterling vanity set, placed atop the furnishing, gives the room a lived-in look.
