{Favorite Coastal Finds} Surf's Up!

Surfer's Paradise ~ Photo by David Tsay. Coastal Living
It's easier than you think to create a surfer's paradise that is casual and laid back. 

A "Surf's Up!" palette incorporates shades of blues, dune grass green, and sand. Add your own favorite beach photographs to pull the surf theme together. Many online companies will enlarge photos into posters for a reasonable price.

While looking for furnishings, keep in mind super-comfort and natural elements.  A woven headboard, seagrass rug, plush chenille pillows and/or couch are sure to keep it comfy.

Here are some favorite coastal finds that will add the finishing touch to your new "Surf's Up!" beach cottage!

Oh, for the good ole days when you would grab your board and drive down to the beach in one of these old beauties!  Revive a room's tired and stuffy decor easily. Catch the coastline craze again with this handmade pillow from Beachside Style....

Beachside Style offers a wide selection of Surfboard/Beach designs!
