This loft was designed by me so of course I love it. It is in a lush garden. Every details was a reflection of my culture and my influences. The floor is black bamboo, ceilings wood hand painted. I traveled to Mexico and picked out all the tiles in the kitchen and the bathroom. The toilet is even a hand painted piece of art. I have beautiful paintings all over the loft, from local artists. Everything is brand new, the shower, the kitchen, etc. It is modern and full of art.
The loft is set in the back yard with over 150 fruit trees. It has two huge sliding doors. When you look out from them, you see that you are surrounded by fig, orange, lemon, grapefruit, and loquat trees. In the morning you see birds coming to eat from the trees. The entire space is full of art and beautiful pieces of furniture.
You will have access to the entire loft and the backyard. All the cups are handmade, the dishes and utensils are at your use for any time.
