Surf-inspired interiors

Last weekend, the Beau and I got up early and did a little paddle boarding. You see, I love to paddle board; we first did it on our honeymoon in Lanai, and it's been a favorite pastime ever since. You can surf waves, tour around ogling oceanfront property, or just float around on the board and enjoy the peace that comes from being out on the water.

So how about some surf-inspired interiors?

(well, well, well… what do we have here? Decorative knots, you say? What a surprise! No decorative knot fans around here. Nope. None.)

What I love about these spaces is that they're texturally rich, monochromatic, and serene-- they remind me being out on the water early in the morning, when everything is a little gray and foggy and soft. Also, I swoon for this print by Max Wanger-- I'd like to get it for Miles. He doesn't have a lot of (read: any) interior design desires, but I think he'd really appreciate this piece. But then again, who wouldn't?
