Well-placed windows in its rooms create a sense of openness, elevating the unpretentious exterior. The wooden accents and the white marble flooring throughout the interiors, not only enhance the innate beauty of the materials but also foster a harmonious connection between spaces. ~ Venessa Thomas (Co-Editor)
