Our last project reveal of the year is here!
This gorgeous Chicago Single Family Home is owned by my best friend of over 20 years so needless to say, this one is special. The house was only a few years old when they bought it so it didn’t need any major remodeling so we got to do the best part - decorate!
15 years ago, Eileen was one of the friends who said yes to me when I wanted to design homes for free just to get the experience. From her studio on Michigan avenue in Chicago to her first home with her husband and this latest project, she believed in me from day one, making this project that much more meaningful.
As always, we had our work cut out for us. We were challenged with different styles from Eileen and her husband, we needed to make the home personal but doing it in a refined way and last, KID-FRIENDLY WAS A MUST!
A few ways we were able to succeed at these challenges were:
✔️ Creating a personal travel gallery wall in the family room. We curated photos that the clients had taken in their travels around the world, framed them and used 4" wooden shelves to hang. This idea was inspired by Eileen's husband and given all of the incredible places they traveled, it was a no brainer to execute this gallery wall!
