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.

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!

Super adorable tween girl’s room! (source – unknown)
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!
