Beach House Ideas

1

Simply a happy, carefree, total outdoor beach living lifestyle! If we ever manage to move to the Central California Coast (Love Cayucous and Pismo Beach!), I am going to figure out a way to incorporate some surf style in our adopted home of California.

Bright colors, a dash of Hawaii, and of course a vintage surfboard or two, this coastal decorating style just speaks to me of what living and playing at the beach really mean; a little sandy, a little salty and complete fun in the sun!

So inviting! I am willing to bet that they surfed and played at the beach all day, and now it’s time for roasting marshmallows.

One of my all time favorite images from House Beautiful Magazine! So easy to imagine a summer party on this beach cottage patio. Actually, I am crazy about the whole house – check out designerKrista Ewart’sCalifornia beach bungalow!

Totally adorable and very creative! (note to self… buy chalkboard paint) FromDesire Empire, I love what she’s hand crafted with a little imagination and creativity.

How fun is this room? Classic beach stripes and surfboard accent mixed with global influences of zebra prints. Anybody who really knows me, knows that I have a closet love for animal prints…. don’t tell!

A little glam fromMary McDonald! Love those white wood floors, grey fog mural walls- and to make it really interesting, a deep yellow surfboard. I confess that I have a total design crush on Mary…

From Apartment Therapy, fun tour atCeleste and David’s Pin-Up Pad! I wanted to show you all this, because they collect vintage posters; the “bikini” movie posters are an extra special touch at their house mixed with the vintage surfboard. Not sure that I could do the “tiki” thing at my house…

Here’s a few ideas from our collection to inspire you!

And in case you can’t find any “real” surfboards – these funSurf Artpieces from Suzann Nicoll are pretty darn fun! (they can even go outside in a covered area)
