"One of the things I loved about the way we designed the kitchen was we have this peninsula where we can have a full spread if we ever do a dinner party or a lunch or even just to have snacks and food out for the kids," Erin explained. "Then the island is really relegated for sitting and hanging out. I like to have the two locations. Also I cook a lot so this way I can prep on one spot and if I needed to it's a spill over into the other."
"I wanted things to feel very clean because having a lot of children just equates to clutter and color and mess," she said, "so I wanted things to feel very neutral otherwise and I wanted to accentuate the light and the airiness of the space."
"We decided to convert two units into one, so we actually put the spiral staircase," Erin revealed. "What I decided to do was to design all the bedrooms on the lower floor, so on the 5th floor, and then the top floor of the building have a very open loft style with dining, kitchen, living room. It just felt like a really good flow and a good use of space."
"I really love being downtown, I think I'm just downtown girl," she said. "I love being by the water—my sign is cancer—so anything by the water just makes me happy. It makes me feel at home and I just like how it's so walkable. Where we live has a real neighborhood feel because we're northern Tribeca."
"It's very open and bright. We have three bedrooms and a little den/home office on the downstairs floor and two full bathrooms down there. Then upstairs we have our half bath as well as our kitchen and dining and all that."
Erin and husband Abraham share three children: Levi, 8 Layla, 5 and Elijah, 3.
