I arrived in the Potrero neighborhood near the Mission with a chair I picked up from Fillmore street. I was a block away from the Heath Ceramics factory and a Blue Bottle Coffee (score!). I was greeted by a vibrant Erin and her very friendly pups Chloe and Bailey. Erin is blonde and statuesque and constantly flashing an ear to ear smile. Also, in the room is Rue Magazine editor and marketing associate, Kat McEachern, who's reddish wavy locks hit just grazing her shoulders. Everyone is excited and rushed as Erin tries to keep the dogs off her newly lint-brushed black carpet. Soon arrives raven haired New York-based photographer Emily Johnston Anderson who arrives with coffee in tow and we get to work. Erin's Apartment 34 office is bright and white with modern elements including a copper hanging lamp, a chalkboard closet and metallic desk.
These are photos taken of my tiny personal use Nikon camera and not so great, so I recommend you see the amazing pictures that Emily took and the accompanying article about Erin's Space by Kat McEachern, check out this month's issue of Rue magazine. Also, Erin posted Emily's outtakes on Apartment 34 here.
