Coastal Vintage Style Interiors

Image
Below is a collation of my favourite coastal vintage style interiors that I blogged about last year - all based in bars, cafes, shops, restaurants and resorts.   The River Bar in Brisbane is a great source of inspiration for decorating with lots of vintage nautical items. Isn't that crab pot light and the wall filled with fishing & maritime memorabilia just fabulous? A simple old sisal rope draped across a beam with lights is very cool indeed.   Vintage nautical flags displayed behind a model sailing yacht.  Such a lovely collection of old bottles, a big old fishing float and other beautiful old nautical finds.  Port holes with mirrors and ship's lights complete another wall. 
The Riverbar is well worth a visit and is located at Eagle St Pier.  One of the highlights last year was visiting the QT Resort in Port Douglas, Far North Queensland. At the entrance you are greeted with this incredible glass float display.  It was huge.  The ship's lights at the base are around a metre …

Beach Vintage Style Home - Sunshine Coast, Australia

This stunning home belongs to lovely IG friend Tanya of Chesterton Smith Photography. Tanya is a professional wedding photographer and these are her photos. It is truly a beautiful coastal home filled with gorgeous treasures. From a young age, Tanya has always had a great eye for vintage and styling, and mix that with her love of the sea, she has created a beautiful coastal vintage style home. 

Take a peep, it's worth a visit! 
All these stunning images were taken just before Xmas last year. Immediately, upon arriving there is a relaxed sense of style. Thongs at the door, tropical plants, painted oars, a coastal wreath and the doormat stating 'Beach'. 
You just want to go inside don't you? The foyer welcomes you with a gorgeous denim style rug that Tanya picked up from Temple & Webster. Old shells have been passed down from her grandmother. It certainly is a little piece of paradise in this lovely abode. The beautiful old creel & the PNG baskets once belonged to Tanya…
