Lots of little touches have been added to the design scheme, custom framed mirrors from Indigo Art, gorgeous solid surfaces by Stone Source and perfectly padded bench seating and gorgeous coffee tables bring a feel of intimacy and relaxation.  Jane and our team have been hard at work to create the perfect space to relax and unwind.
