In the kitchen, the ceilings are higher than the living and dining room, making the space feel lofty and open. A large window allows for views of the outdoors and natural light to flood the countertop.

The design of the bathroom includes plenty of Carrara marble, with the material being used for the walls, floors, bathtub and vanity. A skylight lets natural light into the space, while a backlit mirror provides additional lighting when it gets dark outside.
