You don't need to be a surfer to enjoy a fun and colorful surfboard in your home. Surfboard decor is for everyone who loves the beach and the water! So take a look at these great surfboard decor ideas.

surfboard coffee table
And Annie Selke was given three keywords -sea, sand, and sky- to design this Chatham, MA, beach house. The result, an eclectic home bathed in blues that includes a Surfboard Table. So when thinking surfboard decor, consider repurposing a board. You could turn a surfboard into a Message Chalkboard Sign! For more surfboard decor ideas, go to Hotel Casa Camino in California. Also surfboards make great headboards as seen in one of these Coastal Hotel Bedrooms.

And another creative idea for surfboard decor! A retro-style surfboard that serves as a custom light fixture in a outdoor pavilion. Via BHG.

And in this California bungalow featured at House Beautiful the surfboard fills up the white wall, completing the feminine scheme of the patio. The surfboard is dressed up with fabric!

Beach Boys Surfin
And how could I not think of The Beach Boys while writing this post. "If everybody had an ocean across the USA, then everybody be surfin'..., surfin' USA!"

Ooh I LOVE this post. I don't surf, but hope to one day. In an ocean that is guaranteed to be shark-free. That's my fear of surfing: sharks. Ugh. But I love surfboards in houses - we have a couple in my parents beach house and they're so cool. I love that room in Chatham - I went there a couple of years ago! Such a cool town!

What a perfect accent for any beach house. Takes me back to my youth, but my mother would never have let us bring boards in the house. We brought in enough sand ourselves!

I love seeing surfboards inside! It is so coastal cool!

Oh, I love this. Have always wanted to add a surfboard to our home decor but my hubby won't let me take his boards out of their bags! Our ring bearer in our wedding carried a woody with surfboards and the rings on top of the board.
