We’re in love with Halcyon House

Summer memories for many of us consist of long road trips to a beachside destination. There’s no denying the appeal of a hideaway seaside motel, especially when given a makeover like the one done to the former Hideaway Hotel at Cabaret Beach on the northern New South Wales coast.

Twenty-one individually designed rooms and two suites have been created with a strong sense of beachside holidays of old. The mixture of contemporary pieces with antique furniture and pictures creates a vibrant look that is timeless, filling the spaces with beautiful things.

Eye-catching patterned textiles with colourful prints are used to upholster bespoke pieces, which are then littered with decorative cushions covered in contrasting fabrics. The end result is boldness that sits beautifully within the light-filled rooms that are reminiscent of a California hacienda or a Hawaiian plantation.
