A queen-sized bed, dressed in fine Belgian linens, looks out onto the property’s protected wetlands. Cozy and classic in design, the master bedroom boasts a neutral — and easily customizable — color palette.

A silk ruffle pillow lends romance and drama and complements the floral pattern of headboard upholstery fabric.

The headboard top provides a ledge to display rustic-chic accessories, including a beeswax candle produced and purchased locally.

With the addition of backing, batting and upholstery fabric, the home’s original fireplace mantel becomes the master bedroom headboard. A fresh coat of paint and ribbon tufting complete the look of this farmhouse-style furnishing.

A budget-chic way to update a bedroom, the dresser ends of a dilapidated vanity table are freshened with a coat of paint and reused as night tables.

Drawing on design elements from the great room and kitchen, beadboard trims doorways that lead into the bedroom and master bathroom.

A subtle rose theme extends from bedroom to landing, where two botanical prints cap a vintage dresser.

Victorian-style, rose-cut crystal doorknobs are era-appropriate and retain the original charm and character of Blog Cabin.

“When you find a frame that itself is so great (because it’s so funky or so ornate), use the frame and then put a found object in the middle,” says designer Victoria Lesser. “It’s its own art form.”

A library nook with custom inset shelving and window seat is the perfect spot to display knickknacks, stack books and place keepsakes. Shelving was shimmed to accommodate the home’s slightly uneven floors.

A vintage printer’s tray sorts and displays treasures discovered during beachcombing adventures.

Adjacent to the library nook, a storage and media center pairs new cabinetry and drawers with an antique glass-front storage unit purchased in Paris. A flat-screen TV is tucked behind the unit’s top doors.

Cushions upholstered in muted earth tones echo the color palette in the adjoining master bathroom.

A diagonal door extends the bay view. The entrance leads from the master suite onto the second-floor plantation-style balcony.
