Annie & Kristina's Brooklyn Treehouse

House Call

(We're trying out some of the best applicants from our New York Blogger Search — this House Call comes from applicant Annie Werbler.)

Name: Annie & Kristina
Location: Greenpoint, Brooklyn NYC

Our home does something nearly impossible — it reflects the personalities of the laid-back lawyer and uptight artist who live here. As the designated creative, it became my duty (and pleasure) to outfit the two-bedroom space in a way that was acceptable to my professionally opinionated but very stylish friend. With mid-century modern design as a major influence, I infused the old rooms with things that hearken back to simpler times, all the while maintaining an unmistakably modern look...

...The rustic old floors, lush overgrown second-story deck, small stature relative to the surrounding buildings, and fantastic view of neighbors' gardens give the bones of our home a treehouse-like feel. The interior is playfully fancy and joyful, and it suits its surroundings in historical-but-changing Greenpoint to a t(r)ee.
