Interiors - the boat shed

Last weekend we went to our friend's place for a birthday party. We love going to Lou's for a party because the parties are in the old boat shed. I snapped some shots before everyone showed up - thought you might like to see them. Everything in this boat shed is authentic - no reproductions here, no shabby chic or Martha Stewart. It has evolved naturally over the last 30 years into a wonderful, comfortable, authentic space with real vintage lake charm. Tons of great lakeside memorabilia. It's a great spot for a party - and if it had been just a little lighter I could have got even more pictures - maybe next time - enjoy . . . .

I have been coming here to read your posts through capers and olives. I guess this is a right time to leave a comment :)
What a beautiful spot for a party. Are you in BC?

I'm not sure how sociable I'd be because I would be checking things out. Looks great!

This looks awesome. I love when things are authentically weathered and have real character rather than being manufactured that way.

It's so beautiful where you live! At first I thought the boats were miniatures on the windowsill, then, oh my gosh, I realized they were actually on the lake shore. I loved the little trick. ;)

That's amazing! What a great place to rummage around in! And what a fabulous beach for a swim – sans bears, I hope!! :) L

Wow, this place is even better than I had imagined! I'm with AnnaVallance, I would not be able to talk to anyone! You are super lucky to have been in there. What a treasure trove!

So fun to read all your comments on this post. I hope that Lou came and read them too. It really is a special place. Dougs says that one day he will go down there and take some 'real' pictures of all the treasures!
Haha!
