Surfs Up - Creating a Surfers Paradise

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

The sun is slowly rising, as you walk you feel the sand creeping between your toes.  You can hear the familiar sound in the distance, the sound that is calling you home.  The breeze caressing your cheek is salty to the taste.  As you edge closer to the waters edge, you take a deep breath, the sea air filling your lungs.  You feel alive.  The white foam of the ocean tickles as it ebbs and flows over your feet.  You take a step in.  A sudden calmness overtakes you as you paddle into the shining waters and it beckons you further in.  The sun is rising and glistens varying shades of orange across the ocean.  For a moment everything is at peace. Surfing dawn In an instance everything changes as Surfs Up!  Creating a surfers paradise is not just about the drama of the waves but moments like this.  I have found some incredible pieces that will add these contrasting themes and some fun into your home.
