House Call

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

Who Lives Here? David & Sean plus dogs Emit & Schmoopy
Location: Williamsburg, Brooklyn NYC

Located in the heart of Williamsburg on Berry Street, David and Sean found amazing potential behind an unassuming façade. This 2 bedroom, 1,000 square foot apartment is full of bright light and whimsical touches. Owner of the nearby Modest Designs, an antique and mid-century modern furniture store, David describes their home as a rotating gallery. As he puts it, “Our home is like an extension of our shop. We’re constantly swapping out pieces.” But don’t feel like you can’t put your feet up on their Noguchi coffee table...

The apartment is surprisingly comfortable with offbeat touches like framed comic book art and plenty of greenery. Sean’s favorite space? His rooftop garden filled with brightly colored planters he picked up at Home Depot.
