Friday House Tour

Finally, we have a little bit cooler weather, about 90 degree. The daily temperature of the  whole week is averaged at 100 degree. So I regard today’s weather is a big bless.

Love the design on the cabinetry. Lucite coffee table under the cabinet brings the light and easiness to the space. Each piece here is an art piece yet they all have purposes.
