Erin & Rob's Lots of Books in One Very Long Room

House Call

Name: Erin & Rob
Location: Old City, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

The biggest challenge in our apartment was figuring out how to break up one very long room into discrete dining, working, and living areas. Since we both work in publishing, we also had to figure out storage for a lot of books. (Ikea bookcases to the rescue!)

Most of our furnishings are sourced from flea markets, country auctions, and Ikea -- as inexpensively as possible. Our style is faded and comfortable and a little bit elegant. We like to put our feet up and not use coasters and leave the paper lying around on the weekend.

Thanks, Erin & Rob!
