Continue down the hallway, more soft light guiding the way, until you reach the kitchen and dining nook. New appliances and gorgeous tile backsplash make this room a serene space to enjoy your early morning coffee or a casual late evening dinner - and all meals in between.

Just off the kitchen is a beautiful space that can be used to meditate, journal, and simply collect your thoughts in a quiet and tranquil room made for relaxation. The indoor planters also add an earthy feel to the room.

Once back in the kitchen, head the other direction to find a GORGEOUS blue tiled bathroom.
