Apartment is so Chic and Perfect

This apartment is so chic and perfect for a girl’s weekend with my sister. We each had our own beds and the sheets were soft and amazing. I’d actually love to know where to purchase a set of these sheets for my apartment back home. We visited on such a warm weekend, and being from Colorado I’m not used to the humidity, so the AC at night was a god-send. There’s also a cute little courtyard in the back filled with green trees and birds singing and there were people enjoying conversations out on their patios, which all felt very cozy and European. We were right near Soho which is dangerous for the wallet but so fun – there was a ton of shopping and cute places to grab wine on the patio. I’m obsessed and recommending all my friends to stay down here next time they’re in town for work.
