Anyone who’s driven along the super-scenic Highway 1 knows that the lush stretch of Northern California coast is about as glorious as it gets. Not only does the unpolluted redwood-meets-oceanic backdrop serve as a nice respite from city living, but it continually provides a point of inspiration for artists and designers alike.
And it looks like the peeps over at West Elm took to the turf to soak in the scenery. The home brand headed to the gorgeous Stinson Beach and Mount Tam in Marin to marvel at the sights and sounds for their summer catalog — and we have the images to prove it. With crazy-pretty pics of everything representative of NorCal — like a sun-soaked campsite and an eclectic table-scape on the beach — these awe-inspiring snaps are truly meant to be taken in. Um, could summer get here already?!
