In the main living area, there’s the dining room, bar and lounge, which is focused on the fireplace. White furnishings have been paired with tropical plants, wood and gold accents, while a dramatic wall hanging spans the double-height ceiling.

Accessed through a door just to the side of the lounge, is an outdoor space set up with a couch similar in style to the one inside. The outdoor lounge has added some color with a few bright throw pillows.

Opposite the outdoor couch, is a dramatic white fireplace, that almost matches the fireplace in the lounge inside. The fireplace chimney travels the full height of the home.

Back inside and behind the lounge is the bar, with a U-shaped layout, great for creating a counter space that people can sit at.

Down the hallway is the open and airy kitchen that has a small breakfast nook and an island large enough to have space for three seats. Even though the kitchen is wood, the kitchen doesn’t feel dark and closed-in due to the bright white walls and placement of the windows.
