Perfect! This is a real home with a modern and simple interior. Jessica knows interior style like a professional. It's not necessary to prepare our props, moreover, bright natural light made us shoot photos as we expected. Her kindness set us at our ease from the beginning to the end. We hope to work there for the next project!

Great space for a video or photo shoot. Tons of natural light from the large windows facing the living room and kitchen so getting a clean shot for our interview that was properly white balanced was a breeze. Very clean unit with chic decor. Jessica, our host, was super responsive and helpful. Highly recommended and will be reserving her place again.
