I always talk about Erica around here… Erica and I did this, Erica and I did that…. Erica Reitman, the writer of Design Blahg and Effed in Park Slope, and I met over a year ago when she asked me to participate in a “Where I Blahg” series… Now we are like BFF. No really. B.F.F.
Then Erica introduced me to Susan and Will, The Brinsons of House of Brinson. They throw awesome parties, bring you home made jams when they come over, teach you how to stretch canvas, and are generally super awesome. Susan is an art director and Will is a photographer. Maybe the best photographer I’ve ever met. His photos are so rich and deep that they look like paintings.(His portfolio is HERE. I am currently begging him to take photos of my kids, but he doesnt take pictures of kids apparently. Boo.)
Anyway, this post is a Brinson/Reitman collaboration. Erica, Susan and Will teamed up to style and shoot these amazing photos of Erica’s place.
I’m enamored with Erica’s apartment and Will’s photography:
How mind bogglingly gorgeous are these photos? And how cool is Erica’s place?!?!
Im a huge believer in design bloggers walking the walk in addition to talking the talk. If you are going to write a blog and talk about how awesome your taste is, I would love to see something you designed, I want to see where and how you live. Im not into the caginess that some people have about that… I think every design blogger should publish their home and work, first because its so damned interesting to see where other people live, and second because it lends to their credibility as bloggers!
Also… Erica has multiple Sketch42 paintings! The one in the second photo is my Dog Eared Graffiti piece!
You should really head over to House of Brinson right now to read the interview with Erica, HERE.
