Established Antique Collector, Dealer & Guesthouse Accommodation in Margaret River, WA.
Margaret river Antiques & the ‘Studio Guest Suites’ is easily recognised on arrival by the Victorian street lamps, flagging this Georgian look building on Town View Terrace. The showroom has for the last two years displayed an extensive collection of Antiques, however ‘Margaret River Antiques’ will soon close its doors, for refurbishment once more.
Scheduled to reopen October 2017
James & Katie have planned for a flashy new foyer, gorgeous Georgian library lounge and 3 additional guest suites, along with a refined collection of antiques including; jewellery, art-glass, silver and clocks, for display in the all new guesthouse gift shop, that will trade online and by appointment. The new gift shop and antique stylised accommodation, is the ultimate repurposing of many significant finds that James & Katie have collected along their journeys. The new look entry foyer is interior designed with a customised fit-out that reflects the creative vision of James & Katie’s, and is their ideal entry statement!
James states that with the change in peoples economic priority and a shift in peoples thinking toward the relevance of antiques the world over, many antique dealers & collectors alike have surrendered to retirement. But optimistically for us, this is merely a pivot in the direction of our antique collecting life, that actually allows us to continue enjoying the beautiful objects of the past, but in a different way. Our refurbishment is the creative reuse of much of our antiques collection, each suite thoughtfully planned out with our most beautiful pieces.
For Katie its a welcomed opportunity to create a beautiful sanctuary for her guests to enjoy time and time again and provides a change of pace from working in management and the interior design industry. The prototype ‘Studio Guest Suite’ has proved successful for 2 years running now, and consistently rates 10/10 across booking platforms, its now time to put this formulae to work.
To top off this positive new direction in Katie & James life, they are now sporting a 1970’s GT 351 Ford Falcon’ and provide chauffeured wine tours and joy rides in a classic Aussie muscle car. What a way to top off a great weekend away!
