Surf Style at Home

Thankfully, my husband didn't come with over sized leather furniture, sports posters, or deer heads, but he did come with about a dozen surfboards. Instead of cramming them all under our house and in our shed, I decided to hang a few of the nicer ones in our house as art work. We have a lot of long walls in our house and 11' ceilings, so hanging these surfboards was great because they took up empty walls that would have taken us a long time to fill. 
I love seeing boards used as artwork in other homes, especially the bottom picture of skateboards hung in Michelle Adams (former Lonny magazine editor) NYC apartment. 


I might be the last person to know this, but thought I would share anyway!
Diane von Furstenberg designed a limited collection of bathing suits, cover-ups, and even surfboards for Roxy (think the great DVF prints at the Roxy price)! I love the prints of the bathing suits and wouldn't mind one of these boards on our walls! See the full collection here.

A New Outlook

Gray and I are quickly growing out of our little bungalow, and unless we find an incredible deal, we will more than likely start building a home in the next year. While growing up, I moved 17 times before I turned 18, so I would love to build a house that I love and stay put for a good long while. One thing on our wish list when we build a home are steel windows and doors.  I'm not sure they will be in the budget once we add all of our "must haves" but they sure do make a home beautiful.
