A whole year with no summer weather has really changed this gal…..for the paler. I think I’ve finally come to terms with the difference in temperature between San Diego and our new home in Oakland, but I still find myself longing for those hot sunny days and sand between my toes.
It’s a little bit easier to deal with now that fall has arrived, and everyone is in sweater weather mode, but seeing my San Diego friends posting beach pics in November got me thinking of an alternate solution.
So maybe I can’t spend everyday of the year at the beach anymore, but I can bring a bit of the beach, into our new city home in Oakland.
I knew I wanted something beachy, that gave me all those San Diego feels, and sure enough I came across this perfect ocean photo by Kamala Nahas.
I’m totally in love with the vibe this gorgeous piece of art brings to our home. I swear I get nearly the same meditative feeling staring at this photo as I do staring at the actual ocean. Even the dogs love it. I think they miss our beach trips just as much as I do.
If you’re feeling like your home needs a little refresh, a new vibe, or just a pop of color definitely check out Minted’s incredible collection of Wall Art. If your walls are good to go, they also have a super rad collection of home goods.
I’m semi-addicted to their throw pillow selection.
And, as always, Minted is my go to for Holiday Cards and Stationary (gift idea! hint. hint.) Make sure to order yours early so you get them in the mail with plenty of time to kick back and enjoy the holiday festivities.
