Whitewashed Beach Living Room
Photographer Roger Davies

Surfer Pad

“In my next life, I want to be a Gidget-type, who marries Moondoogie and lives in a laid-back bungalow like this one. From the oversize artwork and bamboo blinds to the whitewashed everything, this open living room is quintessentially shack-chic. I can imagine an intimate party here at sunset with margaritas and the music turned up high.” —Alison Miller, Associate Editor
