As I am sort of (pseudo) helping my brother and sister-in-law with their home in Manhattan Beach, CA – I came across the idea to incorporate a bit of surf theme into their modern-era beach adjacent home. What better to decorate the walls then with a surfboard? (And why there are half a dozen surfboards stacked in the garage I do not know!) Instant art and decor! In searching for concepts I found some fun ideas, everything from a modern home to a beach cottage…



Fun colors, a little cottage-y, a little glam…and a longboard hanging on the wall of this living room!

A surfboard shaped headboard for a children’s room. Precious.


In a tall stairwell, a vertical hanging surfboard fills out the space well.


A completely surf themed bedroom!


A beach cottage truly needs a surfboard somewhere in the decor!


Colorful art and a colorful surfboard pair well together.


A sophisticated black and white striped bedroom contrasts well with a plain white surfboard.


This ultra chic living room uses a vintage surfboard as part of it’s decor.


And if your office happens to be near the beach, keeping a surfboard on display is convenient for catching those good waves when they come rolling in!
