This contemporary bedroom is so calming | japanesetrash.com

This contemporary bedroom is so calming with its dark walls and soft bedding. The luscious woods and modern Tolomeo lamp add to the appeal. The simple roller shade–which looks to be the same color as the walls–is a smart touch. (Is it just me, or does that lamp look like maybe it’s mounted to the back of the night stand? I don’t see a base for it, so I’m guessing it has been attached either to the night stand or to the wall.) All in all, this glimpse of the space holds the promise of a terrific vibe for the house as a whole.

It’s the height of summer in the Northern Hemisphere, and here in Austin the temperatures are reaching triple digits. I’ve always been a believer in letting our surroundings help set the mood in our lives, so, if you’re like me and would like to feel a cooling ocean breeze these days, you might want to think about adding a surfboard to your abode and let the waves crash over you–figuratively, at least. It can be as simple as propping a board in the corner, like in the Madrid home above. Throw in a moody moonscape and the classic Bertoia Diamond Lounge Chair, and you’ve got yourself one stylish set up.

Take the island feeling into your workspace by including a graphic board there. You can picture yourself on Australia’s surf coast where this home is located.

Why not add a surfboard to the bedroom? Get in the laid-back beach mode from the moment you open your eyes. By the way, isn’t this Brazilian surfer’s home amazing?

Boards come in all kinds of sizes and designs, so you can choose one that’s just right for your taste and interior design style. This one even comes with a bit of history.

Think your style is a bit too sophisticated to throw a surfboard against the wall? How about this one from Peter Walker, master artist and surfboard designer/builder. Yes, it’s a real board that can be used in the water, just like all the others shown here. But there’s no denying it’s also a work of art.

So, how about it? Are you ready to add some surfer cool to your space?
