What I mean is that I think I reallyunderstand and appreciate the surfermentality and that especially during thesummer, its something every home-owner should embrace. </p><p>Im talking about the quintessential,and sure, sometimes clichd, stereotypethat surfers are laid back. But its alsoabout accepting what nature gives you,going with the proverbial flow of lifeand just relaxing and appreciating whatcomes your way. During the summer mystandards relax a bit, and the rest of the</p><p>house follows suit. My sofa gets a whitecotton slipcover, the windows stay openfor three months and the floors get alittle sandier. Social events have acome-as-you-are ease: no fancy glassesor dinner party menus. Everything wedrink comes out of a pitcher, and every-thing we eat is either prepared by handor pulled directly off a flaming grill. </p><p>From now until the weather turns, doyour dcor and yourselves a favor andhang ten a little bit. Watch what hap-pens when your home dances with theebb and flow of summer living, and pickup a few habits that might make life alittle easier all year long. </p><p>PHOT</p><p>O BY</p><p> MAR</p><p>K M</p><p>ENDE</p><p>Z</p><p></p><p>Jickie Torres, Editor</p><p>HANGTEN</p><p>@cottagesandbungalows</p></li><li><p>10 cottages &amp; bungalows |</p><p>extra Style Report</p><p>In the moodB Y J E N N A D I X O N</p><p>Channel your inner retro spiritwith these fun and funky PalmSprings-inspired home goods.

Here a few simple updatesthat will make your home feelrefreshed and renewed. </p><p>1. CLEAR THE CLUTTER. Just as in spring cleaning, assess yourrooms and take stock of lingeringitems that should be cleared out. Hotweather and busy days call for fuss-free and uncomplicated living, so ditchthe extra accents and dcor and trythe simple life. </p><p>2. STRIP YOUR WINDOWS.Switch your curtains to sheers orremove them altogether if you can. Letthe great weather and sunny days filter into your home. </p><p>3. DINE AL FRESCO. Take timeto outfit your dining areas so that youuse them more frequently during thenext few months. Prep a basket of out-door linens and keep it handy, so youcan serve dinners outside at the dropof a hat. Clear a spot in the cupboardsfor melamine dishes and cups to be ineasy reach. And add a few extra deco-rative items like outdoor rugs, lanternsand pillows to make the space moreinviting and special. </p><p>4. WHITEN UP. Hot weather justbegs for clean, crisp white dcor,which feels cooler and more refreshingthan heavy colors and patterns.Update your throw pillows and accentsalso to whiten the load. </p><p>ROOM WITH A See how to take advantage of the summers bestassetthe sunny and vibrant landscape outside.
