Sadie and Lorin joke that if their apartment were personified, she would be a 1970s feminist character named Valerie. She's bold, she's not afraid of color (or the patriarchy), and she doesn't take herself too seriously. After all, she does have a "baby pink" kitchen. As Sadie says, "It is a happy place. Of course everything isn't all fun all the time, but it's a place where people seem to like to be. Several couples have gotten together here — one pair of friends even got engaged! (Of course, we do have a well-stocked bar, which never hurts!)"
