Most of the living areas are connected to the outdoors via significant entryways and doors. Lighting, planting, paint and finishes were added to outdoor areas to entice outdoor living. Using worldly influences in selecting lighting and furnishings, one feels touched by a timeless embrace.

Casual furnishings are complimented with a colored glass pendant, and a sequined throw.

Jule customized the fireplace and ceiling to create a warm and inviting area, with a custom settee-chaise, wrought iron & glass lighting, and detailed accents.
