WAKE UP ON THE WEST COAST
Get into a coastal state of mind
Getting into the coastal mindset starts with aligning your schedule with the rhythms of nature--waking with the sun, winding down when it sets and riding the waves of your day with grace and ease. By integrating a few choice home accessories into your routine, you can lay the foundation for that free and easy feeling every day. Check out our tips below and then head over to our Hillside Coastal home tour for a prime example of capturing the coastal way of life wherever you live.
WAKE UP WITH THE SUN
Take a moment to enjoy a hot drink before grabbing your phone. Look out the window, take a few breaths and start your day with the sun.
