in my dreams, i live here: modern surf shack.
by victoria comment


it’s really, really cold here in san francisco right now. i know, you’re thinking california wusses, right? but it’s all relative and i’m freezing, typing away wearing a wool beanie — inside my house. so in my dreams i live here, in a warm beach shack, somewhere on the coast with lots sunshine streaming in and the gentle sound of lapping waves keeping me company. this gorgeous photo by erin kunkel for the design*sponge summer 2011 newspaper completely inspired me. c’mon, let’s get warm — you with me?

  1. I so needed this post today. In fact, more pix–showing more blue ocean and sunny skies, please! I can appreciate being cold. It’s finally WARMED UP to a balmy 8 degrees, though I think it’s up to 11 in downtown SLC. Should be a bit warmer by the time ALT SLC rolls around. Keep the warm posts coming! Maybe photos of mint juleps and kids running through sprinklers?

  2. We’re in the middle of a very hot summer over here right now. I’m very lucky to actually live in my very own beach shack down the road from the ocean. Love all the decorating inspiration in this post, and the reminder to appreciate what we are blessed with here (even the very hot balmy nights)!

  3. Funny you should mention the Design sponge summer paper because I was reading it the other day. I had mine mailed to me from a friend in SF. I live in Ontario, Canada and oddly enough took a walk on the beach this past Sunday. Our snow has all melted and gave way to a beautiful day.
