Watson's Bay Hotel

While living in Sydney in the late 1990's, 
my friends and I would often take the ferry across the harbour to spend an afternoon at the iconic 
Watson's Bay hotel, enjoy lunch and watch the sunset over the dazzling harbour. 
Recently, the hotel was given an amazing makeover and much of it encapsulates seaside opulence with nautical and Hamptons aesthetics and all things coastal vintage. 
 Aren't both these bar areas just divine? I absolutely love the seaside colours, palm leave wallpaper, porthole style windows and life rings in these bar areas. Looks bright and inviting doesn't it?
As you will see in the following photos, there are lots more wonderful coastal vintage style pieces.
Driftwood, rope and brass boat funnel in the background.
 Doesn't this collection of oars look fabulous held up with a hook rack?
 I absolutely love how the lobster pot buoys have been displayed in these settings. 
So simple, bright and cheery.
Isn't this room divine? 
Beautiful old demijohns, glass floats, driftwood, rope, coral, twigs, shells and with a touch of Hampton's sophistication. The table reminds me of an old wool classing table.

It's the perfect room for a wedding.   
 Oh why not.... while I'm here?
 and finally a personalised life ring with the hotel's initials. 

What do you like best?

Fancy a visit?
