About a year ago, my friend Olivia and I decided to create a world of our own that we can escape to when New York City starts to feel a little too wild. We rented an apartment together and turned an empty room into our dream space. It’s a castle, a treehouse, and a monument to our love for our friends, and more than all of those things, it’s our home.
