Located in Bordeaux, 1 hour away from the ocean, Isidore Leroy immersed himself in the sea and wave sports. This led to the development of the Bord de Mer collection. At the heart of this collection is "Surf", the model that breathes the surfing atmosphere into your interiors. Developed in collaboration with Marion Bartherotte, an artist from Cap Ferret, "Surf" is inspired by the beaches of the Landes and Guéthary to capture the essence of surfing.
The "Surf" model offers a dynamic, flowing pattern inspired by the waves of the ocean. Every detail is meticulously crafted to capture the energy and mesmerising beauty of the tubular waves rolling over the sandbank. The curves, crests and swirls of the waves are precisely represented to create a realistic and immersive aesthetic. Enjoy watching the many surfers trying to tame the swell, as well as those strolling along the beach. In the background, you'll see sheer cliffs set with little houses next to the ocean, creating a coastline of rugged terrain and varied detail.
The 'Surf' model is inspired by the ocean, with dominant shades of blue, green and white. Shades range from the deep blues of the powerful waves to the invigorating greens of the clear waters, which contrast with the yellow ochre of the sandy beach, creating a refreshing, sunny and soothing atmosphere.
Although the "Surf" design is printed on wallpaper, it gives the illusion of a relief texture thanks to the fine detail of the pattern. The effects of light and shadow on the waves create a visual depth that adds an extra dimension to the flat surface of the wallpaper. The relief created by the cliffs in the background completes the deep dimension of the décor.
The effect of movement is one of the most striking characteristics of the 'Surf' design. The curved lines and undulating shapes of the pattern give an impression of perpetual movement, evoking the sensation of gliding over a wave. This movement is amplified by the representation of surfers, which brings the waves to life, creating a cohabitation between man and nature. This creates a visual dynamic that brings a sense of life and energy to the environment.
Creating a surfing atmosphere
While 'Surf' would obviously fit in with the decor of a holiday home, the innovative appeal of this model is its ability to transport the surfing atmosphere into your city or country home, far from the waves and sunny beaches. Here are a few ideas and examples of how to decorate your home:
Accent wall :
Choose a central wall in your living room, bedroom or relaxation area and cover it with the "Surf" design. It will become a focal point that captures attention and instantly creates a surfing atmosphere. You can complete the decor with beach accessories, such as vintage surfboards, photos of waves or shells. Don't hesitate to pair surf accessories with plants, flowers and all types of vegetation to complete this seaside ambience.
Cover the wall behind your bed with the "Surf" wallpaper to create a calm and soothing atmosphere. The shades of blue and green in the wallpaper evoke the serene waters of the ocean, creating a relaxing atmosphere conducive to sleep. Complement this with textiles and decorative elements reminiscent of the beach, such as cushions with marine motifs and lamps with soft lighting, to accentuate the zen atmosphere that is characteristic of surfing.
Transform your bathroom using the "Surf" design on the walls. The effect of the waves on the wallpaper will create a feeling of freshness and revitalising energy. Add bathroom accessories inspired by the world of surfing, such as towels with a wave motif, a bath mat reminiscent of sand and shelves to display shells or surfing objects.
Reading corner or meditation room :
Create a cosy corner dedicated to relaxation using the "Surf" model. Hang it on a wall near a window and add a comfortable armchair, a soft rug and cushions to create a peaceful space for reading or meditating. The oceanic atmosphere of the wallpaper will encourage relaxation and transport you mentally to a sunny beach.
Kitchen or dining room :
If your kitchen or dining room is in need of a touch of freshness, the "Surf" model can provide a lively atmosphere. Apply it to a wall or create a frieze on part of the wall to add personality to the space. Complete the look with table accessories in marine motifs, chair cushions in shades of blue and green, and indoor plants for a tropical feel.
Remember to play with the lighting, using soft lamps to create a warm, subdued atmosphere that will highlight the 'Surf' model and intensify the surfing mood.
In conclusion, if you are a passionate surfer looking for a unique way to recreate the surfing atmosphere in your home, the "Surf" model is for you. Combining captivating design, vibrant colours and exceptional quality, this wallpaper will let you immerse yourself in the world of the waves at any time. Turn your home into a surfing oasis and feel the excitement of the waves at all times, even when you're away from the ocean.
