When Kristen Philipkoski, a science writer turned fashion blogger, spotted this 70s beach house in Pacifica, just 15 miles south of San Francisco, she knew she had to have it. Complete with a sunken living room, wall-to-wall shag carpeting, and a mod fireplace, plus awesome views of the Pacific, the retro architecture and boho-beach vibe suited her eclectic style perfectly.
