Surf's Up!

Now that the calendar officially says summer, I'm all about summer related posts! I'm hoping my new adage, "if you post it, it will come" will bring about warm and sunny weather and what better way to begin that with surfing! Not real surfing mind you but decorating with surf boards. Seems it's very popular with surfers and non-surfers alike. I'm ready to hang ten! How about you?

You can always decorate with a surfboard coffee table like Annie Selke.

Interior designer Brooke Giannetti likes to use surfboards in her designs inside and out.

A dining room by Brooke Giannetti contains a surfboard.

Brooke Giannetti also likes to decorate her own home with a surfboard as seen her in C Magazine.

Nate Berkus also decorated a California beach house with a surfboard and was also featured in C Magazine.

If you can't decorate with a real surfboard, you can always try vintage surfing photos like Waldo Fernandez.

You and a group of your friends can carry your surfboards in a big old vintage woody wagon like in this photo from Tim Clark or...

...you can go it alone in a cute little Isetta like this surfer! All we need now are some tasty waves!
