Breezy Encinitas Beach Condo With Gorgeous Ocean Views

A gallery’s worth of art, geometric wallpaper and bold, graphic tile all contribute to this family home’s contemporary coastal style, but the real star is the southern California coast itself. Massive picture windows in room after room frame views of the Pacific that infuse the space with beachy vibes.

White Living Room With Ocean View

To make this condo more livable for a family of six, designers raised the ceilings in the main areas and added more lighting and larger windows to let in more ocean views.

Living Room With Ocean View

Because of its location on top of a bluff in Encinitas, California, the condo has incredible views. The living room makes the most of them with an entire wall made into a window.

Gray Contemporary Dining Area and Ocean View

In addition to taking up less space in the condo, this dining area's banquette is also perfectly positioned to show off the best ocean views.

Transitional Dining Area With Multicolored Pillows

A banquette backs up to the large, open plan kitchen. It's a clever way to work in a spacious dining area without requiring too much floor space. Bright accent pillows infuse it with energy.

Open Plan Kitchen With Chevron Striped Backsplash

The kitchen and living room's wood plank floors are handsome and easy to clean. And in the kitchen, the black-and-white striped backsplash directs eyes down the room and out to the ocean.

Contemporary Living Room With Green Ottomans

To make this smaller-size condo work for larger groups, the designers picked out furniture that can do double duty. Here, in the living room, the sectional and its ottomans can be transformed into a bed. Another sofa can convert into another bed. And several chairs have indoor outdoor flexibility.

Contemporary Living Room With Balcony

Accordion doors fold back to connect this living room with an oceanfront balcony. The ceiling's wood paneling is painted white to brighten the overall look.

Double Vanity Bathroom With Blue Backsplash

These rounded, scale-shaped tiles are perfect for a beach condo bathroom. Their happy color brightens up the whole room.

Contemporary Gray Bedroom With Blue Pillows

The headboard's strong horizontal lines match the wall color, so they bring movement and shape to the small bedroom without being too imposing.

Bedroom With Blue Bolster Pillow

A tall upholstered headboard fools the eye into thinking this bedroom's ceiling is higher.

Blue Powder Room With Geometric Wallpaper

The dramatic powder room wallpaper is like stepping inside a kaleidoscope. Its bold colors and strong shapes leap off the walls.

Contemporary Bedroom With Orange Curtains

It's anchors aweigh in this cheery bedroom, where a round porthole-like mirror combines with the ocean view to give the feeling of a ship's most stylish cabin.

Gray Bathroom With Yellow Backsplash

A little color and pattern go a long way in a small room: In this bathroom, a strip of yellow tiles brighten up the backsplash. And the shower gets an exciting black-and-white backdrop.

White Outdoor Armchairs and Beach

This coastal southern California home looks out over the Pacific Ocean.
