Everything in Its Place: Storage for Stylish Homes
Both practical and stylish, 'Everything in its Place' is a new storage bible that showcases a wide variety of successful storage solutions that certainly don't skimp on style. The days of simply wanting to 'get the look' are over: nowadays, we are more interested in achieving a smooth-running and contented home life, and it's not purely the aesthetics of our interiors that we're pondering.

For those who combed through Cabin Porn for inspiration and The New Bohemians for authenticity, here are bungalows, trailers, cabins, and beach homes where surfers retreat after a day on the waves. Peek inside the homes of longtime enthusiasts and dedicated newcomers that reflect not just a sport or passion, but also a way of life. Blake and Heather Mycoskie of TOMS, hotelier Sean MacPherson, Gypset author Julia Chaplin, and others have set up their spaces to embrace a casual ease and be the break between the waves. With vibrant photographs of design details and bright beaches—from Malibu to the Rockaways, from Japan to Australia—this book captures the soulful milieu of a lifestyle we all aspire to.
"Surfers are a breed onto themselves and their homes . . . Nina Freudenberger has taken a good look at not only a number of these vastly different abodes but also a quick glimpse into the particular and even peculiar lives that are lived there. Because after all, to a surfer at least, surfing is the only life."
