Cove lighting was added in the living and dining space increasing the sense of height and warm lighting. A bronze firebox is present for those chilly nights at home. Defining the separation of the living and dining areas is a beautifully crafted bronze glass and lacquered olive green serving bar, giving a soft rich reflection into both areas.
