Brightwater Hotel & The Lakehouse - Sunshine Coast
Not long after opening last August, the Brightwater Hotel here on the Sunshine Coast contacted me requesting a range of Coastal Vintage items in time for the opening of their hotel and their beautiful function centre The Lakehouse.
Recently I took the opportunity to drive down to Mountain Creek where they are located to take a look. I was delighted to see how they had styled the items that they had acquired from Coastal Vintage and also a range of many other beautiful coastal & nautical finds. It looks fabulous as you can see in the following photos.
Old oars & paddles make a great feature up on the wall particularly these white ones against the dark background in the Pontoon function area.
And the white/red rustic vintage life rings add to the nautical theme & also create a fabulous contrast against the dark walls.
In the gaming room there is a range of authentic wooden lobster pot buoys that I had sourced from Maine, USA and have been placed here with these colourful sets of oars.
Just below that, there are a couple of vintage boat signal flags that have been framed. And quite a few more can be seen throughout the hotel. Framing them is a lovely idea and a great way to preserve them.
Outside on the wall is a pair of old oars and a life ring that fill a blank space in the sitting area.
I have to say these photos of old sailing boats were particularly a favourite and perfect in sepia tone.
Across from the hotel is the function centre The Lakehouse. (yes it is on a lake)
The day I visited it wasn't set up for a function so the room was empty. However, the foyer of The Lakehouse is always set up and is gorgeous. It's style is lakeside elegance with a Hampton's edge.
My favourite piece was this old lobster pot and fish net which both tie in lovely with the glass float.
(the glass float is new, a little different from a traditional vintage glass fishing float but just as lovely)
Isn't that creel just divine and those oars?
If only the fire place had been going that day, I don't think you would have been able to remove me from that comfy seat while enjoying the ambience. Just gorgeous isn't it?

It would certainly be a beautiful setting to get married.
