This luxurious master bedroom features an elaborate hand-painted ceiling with floral designs and cloud details. Just underneath is a canopy bed with a quilted metallic comforter and a soft teal chaise for lounging.

This spacious kitchen features all-over ivory cabinets paired with a dark brown wood kitchen island and teal stone countertops. Other teal accents include the mosaic backsplash and floral rugs. Two chandeliers hang from a coffered ceiling, creating a glamorous finishing touch.
