Two years ago, Covid-19 sent millions of us home to our dining room tables and extra bedrooms, frequently trapping us in zoom meetings and drastically redefining work. Brittany and Andrew Anastor found themselves at home until early this year when they said, “we gotta get outta here.”
“We were both sent home from our jobs, explains Brittany. “Andrew worked a lot in coffee shops while I was mostly at home, and we just felt the need for a sense of work-home separation,” she adds.
Having worked a few years ago for the Buccini Pollin Group, Brittany had often crossed paths with Rob Herrera, Founder of The Mill, dating back to its early days. “We needed to get out of the house, so we just came over here,” Brittany says. And although they are both somewhat new to Wilmington, they realize this city seems to run on familiarity, that sense of who knows who.
“We figured to be part of Wilmington. We should be seen… another reason to get out of our house,” Brittany says.
Remotely, Brittany works in real estate asset management, and Andrew manages claims for a maritime insurance company.
While the Anastors felt a need to leave their house nearby Midtown Brandywine, you may notice that they created a homey but professional atmosphere. Along The Mill’s west hall, your eye will likely be drawn to their office walls painted a deep shade of blue (perfect backdrop for zoom sessions), with the window wall highlighted by wallpaper with an angular design.
“We wanted our office to be comfortable but professional,” Brittany says.
Glance in and see what you think of their beautifully decorated office.
