One of the most sought after locations to live is along the picturesque Pacific Coast of Southern California. Residences on either side of the Los Angeles Pacific Coast Highway easily qualify as "dream" homes and feature award winning architecture. The interiors deserve just as much praise, designed full of chic furnishings and beautiful accessories by talented designers. Let's take a look at just a few of these smart and sophisticated structures overlooking the Pacific.
The Blair Home (above), designed by Architect Bruce Bolander, sits on top of the Malibu hills with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. Concrete and steel are the ideal building materials for this contemporary structure, while minimal furnishings keeps the space cool and open.
Some of these swanky coastal homes don't sit on the edge of a cliff, yet still offer a bit of paradise. Malibu West tract homes provide the ideal mid-century modern dwelling for a more understated way of life in this luxurious neighborhood. According to the L.A. Times article, the 200 structures were designed in both traditional and contemporary styles to give the buyer an option, but architects Nisan Matlin and Eugene Dvoretzky favored their contemporary designs. They referred to the open space plans as Post and Beam construction.
The exterior architecture is not the only eye-catching element of these beautiful PCH homes. This modern living room overlooking the Pacific provides a chic yet comfortable retreat for its celebrity owner. The modern floor lamp will clearly only need to be used during the evening hours because there is no shortage of natural light here.
It's hard not to get distracted while driving along the PCH with amazing sites on both sides of the highway. So, next time you are in the area, park your car and take a nice bike ride around this amazing neighborhood that stretches for several miles. There will be no shortage of striking architecture and you will undoubtedly set your dreams in motion.

Cori Magee graduated from FIDM with a degree in Interior Design and began working at a top hospitality design firm. When the economy forced much of the design world out of work, it turned out to be a blessing for Cori. She created her own design blog, “Pretty Haute Mess” (prettyhautemess.com) to stay inspired and involved with design. In doing so, she discovered not only a whole new network of designers, but she also discovered her love for digital media. Cori recently completed a certificate in Graphic Design.
