Living in LA, you'd think I make it to the beach on a regular basis. Yet the truth is, I've dipped my toes in the Pacific Ocean only twice since I moved here three years ago! It's a real shame, too, because I always leave a day at the beach feeling at once calm and invigorating. The sun, surf, and sand have the power to heal just about anything that ails you!
So while I set my sights on a seaside picnic ASAP, I'm digging the beach-inspired home decor over at Gunn & Swain. The comes to us from husband-and-wife founders Dusty and Julia Wheeler, who describe themselves as beach-loving wanderlusters. With their colorful collection of Mexican blankets and Kilim pillows, plus all-natural scented candles, bath products, and more, they've captured the laid-back essence Southern California coastal style.
If like me you're long overdue for some shore time, Gunn & Swain lets you get your beach fix indoors! Accent a neutral sofa with the magentas, corals, and indigos of a SoCal sunset. Spread a sarape blanket in the backyard and sip a watermelon cooler. Scent your shower routine with a candle that smells exactly like the coconut suntan lotions of yesteryear. Whether you live thousands of miles from the sea or just a short drive, you can never have enough beachy goodness in your life!
