So Cali Cool. The last two designers featured in the showcase bungalows at the 1.7 Ocean event last weekend were designers Andrew Virtue of Andrew Virtue Design, and Steve Jones, co-founder of Better Shelter. Both designers paid homage to the classic "surf shack" but with updated style and clean modern lines. See below for some "surf shack Chic" inspiration... See Andrew's showcase bungalow here:
Andrew used green tones throughout his bungalow, most notably, a soothing seafoam color. He utilized these gorgeous shell curtains to divide the living room area, created by Laguna Beach artist and stylist, Jim Olarte. Andrew staged the rooms with fun surf/skate touches, as well as stretching the design outside and adding interesting ideas into the large yard.
Steve Jones' bungalow also had a strong surf vibe, and included a fantastic idea to hack an Ikea Docksta table. He switched out the top and replaced it with a wooden one, then added mosaic tiles on top to giving it a mid century beachy makeover. Click here to view Natalie Umbert's showcase house.
