Her living area oozes warmth with oversized couches, ample cushions, sconces and candles making it truly inviting.


Hang on the walls and placed on tables and shelves throughout her space are photos of her loved ones.


Her kitchen is kept bright with fresh flowers and bowls of fruits against the white wall palette.


Her collection of designer handbags hangs artistically on a neutral wall and her walk-in closet displays her neatly folded T-shirts and hang clothes.
