While walking through the home during a preview event Thursday, guests marveled at the finished product. The floors were finished, beds made and the the bath tubs were installed. Even artwork, like a lemon leaf curtain by artist Daniel Nakamura, featured natural elements giving the house even more of a natural, zen feel.

The VISION House Los Angeles is from 11-5 p.m.
