Two oversized black ceramic planters full of lush sea-side greenery welcome you to the main entrance. The front door opens up onto an open air courtyard that then leads you into the main part of the home.

Since each of the four bedrooms open up onto the courtyard, the inner courtyard creates a meeting place for morning coffee.

Four whicker lounge chairs look like a great place to sit back, relax, and enjoy a nice cool drink and escape the beach winds in the afternoon while still soaking up the blue skies and warm sun.

An extensive kitchen island has plenty of room for a breakfast bar. Four tall bar stools in a dark stain provide a deep contrast against the light ash cabinets and walls. A long wooden table with chrome legs is set for an evening of entertaining. Hurricane glasses are a classic modern beach house accessory.

A fiery coral and sage green acts as a nice contrast from the cool blue color palette that dominates the rest of the home. The coral bed spread maintains the sea-side nature of this home.

Nautical blues and sea greens mix and mingle in this guest bedroom that sits just off the entrance courtyard. The bed looks ready to dive right into after a long day of beach combing. Plenty of sea inspired artwork brings the room together.

Back outside of this modern beach front home, a lovely outdoor dining area is protected from the gusty Pacific winds by a glass wall. White molded-plastic dining chairs give this dining nook that beach-side look while remaining durable enough to weather the harsh coastal elements. I’d love to sit out here and enjoy my morning cup of coffee.

The views of the deep Pacific can be glimpsed from almost anywhere in the house, though they’re best seen from lounging out on the back patio and soaking up the sun.  These three chaise lounges are ideal for reading a book or taking a moment for yourself while surrounded by impressive views.
