290A: A young lady travels to Carmel-by-the-sea (Solved)

I’ve been looking for the following for years with no luck. YA novel from possibly 1980-1990’s about a young lady (18ish). I cannot remember the title or main heroine name but distinctly recall her traveling to Carmel-by-the-sea and the white wicker furniture that she decorated with. Possibly summer time or just after graduation. Seems she ended up going to work for a lady in interior design. And of course there was a boy…

Possibly part of the just for girls series or similar to that.

  1. My friend Louise lent me her copy of this book in 1974 and I read it a couple of times. It’s [something] Summer. That’s all I remember of the name now but it’s definitely the same book. The wicker furniture detail stuck with me too. And I think the main character had moved from Monterey and didn’t like Carmel at first. Ha! And I was reading it in grey-skied Western Pennsylvania. Both places sounded wonderful to me.
