Bald Head Island Makeover Part 2

I recently made over a Bald Head Island rental and was able to add pops of color and finds from The Coop to make it a space full of personality and the perfect for vacation spot. 
The  original master had a great built-in upholstered headboard, but I opted for something lighter and brighter. The walls were a shade of brown and needed a lighter airy feel. Check out the BEFORE:
It's amazing what a little paint and some new fabrics will do to a space....
A Lacefield fabric upohlstered the headboard and a pale gray quilt and accent pillows create a peaceful comfortable look. Pops of chartreuse add an unexpected element. 
The guest room also features a king bed, but it too, had darker fabrics and needed lightening up. BEFORE....
The fish fabric became the upholstered headboard and I finished it off with pops of coral and fab Greek key bedskirt from Overstock. 
The key in a rental property is to use fabrics that will wear well with washes. 
A rental wouldn't be complete without a spot to tuck the kids (or lots of them).
The bunk room sleeps four and needed a little personality.
This kid's space received new bedding. I found king duvets on One King's Lane and had them split in half to become twin size coverlets. I added Jonathan Adler pillows on each bed as an accent and cabana striped drapes from Overstock.  
 The original room was lacking headboards and I wanted something fun to ground each bed. 
 I scored reclaimed wood signs at a Carolina Beach street festival. The surf vibe adds a little whimsy without carrying too much of a theme. 

 The green lacquered side table was another CraigsList find and the clear lamp with green cord adds a cute lighting element (via Target). This space is not only has fun coastal look, but will be perfect for overflow guests or smaller ones... 

bye bye birdie...
