sneak peek: andy pratt & sarah coombs

by Grace Bonney

i’m so glad to be back in the groove with sneak peeks again. it’s a tough time of year to ask people to clean and photograph their houses (relatives, shopping, travel- it’s tough) so i’ve fallen woefully behind on having a new house weekly. but hopefully our new intern (yay!) can help with that. in the meantime, i’m thrilled to share a sneak peek into the home of artists andy pratt and sarah coombs. you may recognize andy from his stationery line, but ac and i know andy and sarah best as the royal couple of btsh. andy is one of the most incredible players in our hockey league and his lovely wife sarah is an equally good goalie (and looks super cool in all that gear). they were kind enough to share some photos of their home (photographed by their friend shannon taylor) and a brief description so i hope you’ll enjoy andy and sarah’s sneak peek. you can click here for slightly larger versions of their photos- enjoy! [thanks andy and sarah!]

“Our East Village apartment is railroad-style, but instead of having full walls, the divisions are mostly glass, so we have lots of windows indoors. It’s great because it makes the small apartment feel much bigger. Plus, it is kind of cool to be able to see the rest of the apartment no matter where you are.”

“Even though we’re renters, we’ve tried to incorporate lots of ourselves into our apartment. Sarah did the silhouettes of us on the wall in our living room right after we got married in September, and some of my new prints are up there, too. We put my robot in the bell jar in order to showcase a little of my collection, as well as protect him from our two cats, Sydney Bristow and The Butler. And the long cork board in the kitchen changes all the time as we get new pics—we have ones from our honeymoon and most recent party up there now, mixed with old family photos and postcards we bought but never sent.”
