Adventure Kids Bedrooms - Look for Us in the Magazine

I just love these fun bedroom ideas from Better Homes and Gardens, 2019 Spring Kids Rooms Special Edition. Jessica Bennett, the writer and producer of this adorable themed room did a fabulous job of pulling together kid friendly bedroom decorating ideas inspired by designer Jarlath Mellett's nautical bunk room. Plenty of space to play, and imagine with bright colors and lively beach kid decor to keep kids dreaming of the next adventure!
(P.S. So excited to see our Blue Shark Bite Surfboard take center stage too!)

Here are a few more ideas that we think would work great in a kids' room too!
You can't go wrong with durable indoor-outdoor bright pillows for a kids room, especially for less than $40.00! 
Fun lighting is a must - especially when diving into a favorite copy of Treasure Island or Harry Potter's Adventures!
Island Blues Rug - Featured in Article. Great reversible, durable wool rug!
Ship A'hoy Rug - Machine WASHABLE. Super Kid Friendly!
Can't miss with durable bright stripes! (note: more color, less "white" in a child's bedroom)
The special interest issue of Better Homes & Gardens Magazine can be found at your favorite bookstore or news stand - packed with great ideas for making kids rooms a great place to play and imagine their next adventure. We want to thank Jessica Bennett for using our Shark Bite Surfboard Art as part of her story!

Morro Bay's Otter Love

Don't these little furry sea creatures just make you smile? 

Tom and I hopped in our new Mini Cooper and drove down to the the Central Coast a few weeks ago. Our California coastal spring has been nothing but windy with sideways rain (ick), and we were trying to escape for our anniversary in search of some sunshine. After two days of rain, wind and fog, the sun peeked out on Sunday morning. Yay!


Tom and I grabbed our coffee cups and walked over to the boardwalk that surrounds the harbor in Morro Bay, then we spied these cute sea otters accompanied by their adorable pups playing in the bay. What a show they put on for us! 




Highly recommend Morro Bay for a visit - so much to see and do! Surfing, whale watching tours, fishing, wind surfing, wine tasting, fun boutique shopping, several yummy bakeries and incredible beaches for long walks. I may have come home with a pile of really cool sea glass.. 


Don't get me started on the HUGE California sea lions that cruise the bay - they are magnificent! 




It is absolutely one of our favorite spots on the California Coast! Not a bad spot to spend an anniversary too....





Relax and Live at the Beach Every Day of the Year!
