This dining area has a direct access to a central courtyard of the house. The colors and decors in the space are interesting but I am intrigued with the oval skylight in the courtyard. Such a good way to open up the space!

A striking dining-kitchen space with wooden features everywhere! And the decors are very lovely like the white drum pendant lights and the mirrors on the wall. This home used eco-conscious products and repurposed furniture while adding more storage and function to the kitchen.

The lighting fixture in this area is a hand blown glass globe that hangs from a custom steel canopy. This allows the lighting fixture to be subtle enough not to intrude on the space. But it still looks strong yet be strong enough to stand up to the powerful views beyond.
