As preference, the architect relied on neutral tones and natural materials. The result was a welcoming environment which conveys comfort and tranquility. While the living areas are finished in Roman travertine floors; the intimate areas floor is coated in carpet. The result is a contrast between what is less or more private, with the social areas providing refreshment and sophistication, and the intimate areas, cosiness and warmth.

The neutral tones already present on the walls were complemented by the natural materials used in the finishes. The headboards and upholstery, finished in linen and leather, refer to lightness and simplicity, promoting a sense of well-being. The woodwork, finished mainly in white satin lacquer and American oak, also offers a feeling of warmth and coziness, providing tranquility and peace.
