All the rooms are light and airy, with walls of windows and 11 ft. ceilings. The walls are painted in bright colors and the rooms are furnished with vintage furniture from the 40’s through the 70’s, ethnic rugs, lamps, toys, pillows, hats and artwork. All the furnishings and props are included in the rental fee. We also provide full catering services, unlimited hot & cold beverages as well as snack services for your clients, talent and crew.

Our environment has been inspiring vivid photos by clients such as Billboard Magazine, as seen below (featuring music artists Halsey and Charli XCX), as well as Bridal Shoots and Engagement Shoots.
