Bohemian Coastal Vintage Style Home - Gold Coast

This gorgeous home belongs to beautiful IG friend Suzette @coconut_cabin. 
She was kind enough to let me take some photos of her gorgeous quirky, bohemian vintage style home located in the Gold Coast hinterland.  At first, she couldn't understand why I wanted to photograph & blog about her home.  Come take a peep and find out why. Suz has been a collector of beautiful old things for many years and as you will see she has created a home filled with a love of colour, vintage, nautical and many trinkets of the sea.
At the front door you are welcomed with a hello sign, glass insulators & old glass bottles being used as vases. Don't they look stunning in the afternoon light?
As soon as I spotted this Hawaiian lady at the entrance I knew it was going to be a fun house to visit and be filled with all the things that I love. 
The driftwood mirror is just above the old bottles at the entrance and you can see Suz just below a fabulous crab pot that she has decorated with remnants of fabric.
Doesn't it look beautiful with all the different colours?
Upon entering your are immediately drawn to old 3-metre surf rowing oar that takes precedence over the living room sliding doors. Isn't it fabulous?
I love how it has been hung with sisal rope rather than hooks. I also love that it hasn't been restore and has been left just the way it had been found showing it's age & years of use in the ocean.
The living room is filled with lots of beautiful vignettes as seen in the close up photos below.
Shells, starfish & glass floats fill a gorgeous mother of pearl wooden bowl.
A shell mirror that Suz has made into a display tray illuminated beautifully with shell lights. 
Trinkets of the sea adorn many surfaces and fits in so well together with both old and new. 
Simply gorgeous isn't it?
Outside on the deck she has displayed this original Japanese fishing net with glass floats.
She found this in our warehouse.
Old wooden blocks/pulleys, driftwood garland and glass float sit on the deck rail. 
And below, a collection of lovely old bottles in sea blue.
Very old glass fishing floats hanging on the deck.
Oars above the bed from our new range of oars created by @oarsgalore.

Tell me, what do you like best? 

I would have to say the crabpot light is one of my favourites & the shell cross vignette.

until next time,

lover of the sea and all things
