Breezy Point Surf Club makeover

I think one of the most unscathed areas in New York has to be Breezy Point in Rockaway.  At the very end of Rockaway lies the Breezy Point Surf Club which was estabished in 1937.  The Surf Club is a place where people can rent cabanas for the season or for the day to enjoy the beach, pools, entertainment, restaurant, etc.  The Breezy Point Surf Club was recently leased by Ortega Enterprises and they are planning to make some serious updating while maintaining its history.

My friends Kristin, whom I had previously showed you her beautiful house by the beach is redecorating the 3500sq. ft. bar/restaurant of the Breezy Point Surf Club.  This project is truly a challenge being that I don't think this space has been touched since the 1960's.  The difficult task was she had only 40 days to come up with a design plan, purchase furniture, accessories and have the plan come into fruition.  I will be taking picutres along the way to show its progress, I can't wait to see the end results.

Here are some pictures of before the project began.


Redo in progress…  New flooring is down, walls painted white and ceilings a silvery blue.  Beams were painted white so that they stood out.

Looking into the lounge area before.

Now, shutters were painted a beautiful deep blue, pictures hung and sconces installed, starting to look amazing!

Lounge and billiard area before...

Already starting to take shape with walls painted a deep blue and white, lounge furniture and indoor palm trees.  Airy white curtains flanking the large picture windows overlooking the pool area.

Kristin found this driftwood tree trunk that has washed up from the ocean and placed in the lounge as a little side table.  Great find!

She placed a boat on top of the ledge to bring interest to a dead space.

r two hundred acres of ocean-front beach, bay shoreline, sand dunes, marshes and coa


How cool is this!

This large space is really coming together beautifully.  I can't wait to see the end results!

Hope everyone have a wonderful weekend!
