Join Me For An "Endless Summer" Home Tour

Let's pretend the clocks aren't "falling back" with a visit to Jill's and Mac's ocean front 
home called  "Endless Summer" in Atlantic Beach, Florida.
Noteworthy before the tour...
1.  "Endless Summer" is also the title of a 1966 surfing movie about
following the summer season by traveling around the world.
2.  All the reclaimed wood beams and flooring
came from Mac's father's old warehouse.
3.  Their home was featured in "Coastal Living" Jan/Feb 2006. 
Welcome.  Slip off your shoes.
Here is the ship shape foyer with folded Kantha quilts, books and shells.
Upstairs is the main living living area.  Below is a partial scan from the 
"Coastal Living" article.  Six years later and the style is as fresh as ever!
Can anyone please tell me how to get better scans?  How do all you bloggers do it?  
Off the living room is a ping pong table with solid base that fits the décor
...I am thinking partay!
Great sliding doors.
From the vaulted ceiling hangs an antique paddle board.
The dining room looks out over the ocean.  
Love the color and shape of the plant and pot next to the art work below.
This breakfast nook is so inviting...and sweet sentiments on the chalk board.
Upstairs to the right and left are Jill's and Mac's office alcoves with a 
comfortable sitting area in the middle.  Notice the beautiful rug that Jill got at a local estate sale 
(right before their trip to Turkey--big savings versus shipping a rug home)!
Confession here:  this little door leads to a Pillow Addict's Attic.
Yes,  Jill is one of us.
Got some beauties here.  I'd love to dig around but moving on...
How cute is their teen-aged daughter, Abbe's room? 
This is her cozy study nook.
Look where all the neighborhood kids play football! 
Who needs to travel around the world when you have an
"Endless Summer" here?
Thanks, Jill and Mac for letting us visit.

  21. Great house tour! I love the simplicity of the interior - why compete with such an amazing view?

  22. Fabulous! Love everything about it! Her daughter's room is so sweet...love all the color. What a great idea to make your ping pong table a little more custom. We have a black one, but it never occurred to me to customize it. Love where they play football...does it get any better than that?

  28. I can usually pick a favorite area or element in a home but this is a tough one. What a great home, so many finishing touches that I would never have thought of-especially love the quote on the chalk board.

  31. I remember that issue and I remember that movie. The home is perfect because it's truly enjoyed and lived in. I love the wood beams and vaulted ceiling. The old paddle board is perfect in it's location. Great fun to see this.
    Thanks for sharing.

  33. Seriously, I don't think you could ever pry me away from that perfect place! I could sit on that "football" field *forever*! So gorgeous...I'm going to try and sit in my backyard and see if I feel the same way...I have a sneaking suspicion that it won't be *quite* the same! (c:
