We grew up by the beach, so it's a given that we're drawn to Marin's Beach House Style. Their website says, We’re all about a casual, affordable & happy-go-lucky lifestyle -- well, we'd like to think we are, too.
Founded by friends Susan Delurgio & Alisha Peterson, the store is a light, airy, happy place, with seagrass on the floor and paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling.
It's full of vintage painted furniture, Adirondack chairs, pillows, candles, stationery, frames made of recycled boat wood, and other home accessories. Prices are surprisingly reasonable.
Beach House Style also offers design services. In fact, they designed Sunset's 2007 Idea House. (Check it out here.)
