California State of Mind

On the heels of an amazing northern California beach vacation I am reminded how lucky we are to live in the Golden State.  We are able to incorporate the natural beauty that surrounds us, from the mountains to the ocean, into our everyday life.  We can blur the lines between inside and out, and create spaces that have no boundaries.  As the rest of the country begins to pack up for fall, we are just gearing up for another year of indoor-outdoor living.

Here are some reminders as to why you live in California, in case you forgot…
