Aptly and cleverly named “Panic Room,” it’s a mind-blowing space half covered in colorful graffiti, the and other half left immaculately white. When we say half-covered, we mean everything—the mirror, the dressing table, decors, magazine, and even the curtains—that happens to be included in the room’s boundaries. Imagine yourself checking in this room and falling asleep on the white side, then waking up on the other!
