A Tree House in Brooklyn

Every so often I do a post about a favorite far-a-way place. Today I thought I would keep it a little closer to home. If you don’t live in NYC you may not have heard about Alexandra Meyn of Bed-Stuy. She recently graduated with a degree in interior design and unable to find a job, she decided to build her own. Take a look at the tree house she built behind her apartment building. It is unbelievably shabby chic and if this doesn’t help her land a job, I’m not sure what will!

    Is this a house or a refuge? It’s absolutely charming, and I want one too, but I don’t see the bathroom or the kitchen…or a closet or something that functions like one… But it has things most ‘houses’ don’t have until they’ve been lived in for quite a while – a personality of it’s own!
