Beachy Condo Living Room

A Vancouverite channels the relaxed vibe of his cottage into a dream city retreat.

This chic beach house in the sky has an incredible panorama of Stanley Park, English Bay and the towering cityscape. In the living room, a TV is hung below the window, which puts the focus on the great view — it's also at an ideal viewing height when lying on the sofa. A weathered wood cabinet with louvered doors is a cottage classic that keeps clutter out of sight.
