Surf + Design

I’ve always wanted to learn how to surf, and I recently found myself with some extra time on a business trip to Florida, so I jumped at the chance to take a surfing lesson! Talk about a LONG board:

Now, I am stoked to try surfing with some buddies out here, although less stoked for the freezing cold water…¬†Perhaps a beautiful surf board will be just the thing to take my mind off the cold while I am waiting to catch a wave. Check out these boards from Marin County, CA and Old Jaffa, Israel based company, Saalt. What gorgeous boards, and their logo is to die for! ‘Old Soul + Modern Hydrodynamics’. Now at the very top of my wishlist.

Pink Pretties

I LOVE the color pink… as my friend Amelia would say- ugh, I’m such a guuuurrrrrl.

My boyfriend, on the other hand, is not a girl, and does not love the color as much as I do. Since we are about to move in together (!) and decorate our new place together (!!), there will have to be some color compromises. Over here, in my girly head, are some pink items that I would love to put in the new place:

Those Acapulco chairs would look so rad on our patio overlooking the creek in the backyard. (Sidenote: there’s a creek in the backyard! I feel like I’m moving to the country, in a good way.) Also, from now on, I want to order all of my towels from Fresco– aren’t they so beautiful and unconventional?
