i’m making up a new genre — kinda, sorta anyway — modern surf. i think mid-century modern already has a kind of natural, beachy vibe — maybe it’s the curvy shapes and the color palette. to get this laid-back aesthetic you simply add one part mid-century furniture, add some cacti or succulents, maybe a dried palm frond or two and a color palette pulled from nature: seafoam, aqua, sand, coral and ochre — those all work quite well. aren’t you feeling those relaxed modern surf vibes already?

  1. I like your new category! I live by the beach in SoCal and love this new, modern look. It’s casual and modern and totally different than what you find at the typical Hamptons style, blue and white interior with shells & coral strewn about, that is ubiquitous out here. Can’t wait to see more.
