white framed art prints from society 6. / sfgirlbybay

having grown up in southern california, just a short drive to malibu, i was raised in the city’s surf culture. it’s a culture that has stuck with me my entire life and being at the beach brings me to my happy place — there’s nothing like the sound of the ocean when it comes to bringing me peace of mind. i like incorporating those vibes into my home, so i thought it would be fun to bring that to my guest room and do a little makeover. society6 invited me to partner on an art gallery for the room and so i went to town, selecting a collection of images that embody that easy-going california lifestyle.

i didn’t want to go overboard with too many surf prints from society6 (there’s a lot to choose from!) so i did a mix of beachy photographs paired with vintage-inspired illustrations and some pastel graphics. i think it turned out just beautifully and adds a playful but soothing look to the room. i added a few elements to get the look just right — neutral bedding paired with a favorite crocheted throw, a palm frond, rattan lighting and a surfboard from st. franks that i’ve been dying to take out and learn to surf properly on! until then, i’ll just be enjoying this revamp of my guest room. cowabunga!

  1. Hi Victoria! I’m sure you’ve posted about this before, but can you remind me where you purchased your bed/headboard. It’s so close to what we’re looking for.

    Love this post!

  2. What a beautiful print with the lady & the flower…I live on the East Coast, furthest away from the surf culture. It makes me miss the beach and the NJ shore. One day I want to have a home down there and make everything bright and airy just like this. Your home is beautiful!
