Modern Living In A Classic Home

What do you do when your client wants to incorporate their contemporary pieces into a traditional-style home? You say, “Sure!” This single-family residence went through a full remodel – the kitchen, bathrooms and staircase.
I also replaced most of the lighting to give it a transitional look and feel.

Transitional Townhome

Most people think designers love working with new construction. While that may be true, in this case my client wanted an elevator installed in their new single-family townhome because the master bedroom was on the third floor. There were also plenty of bedrooms for visiting grandchildren to be decorated as well as the addition of contemporary details in
the kitchen and baths.

Urban Oasis

My mission with this incredibly outdated condo in the Chicago Loop was to make the space feel like a luxury hotel, complete with a coffee and wine bar. The owners of this fabulous luxury pied-a-tier in a hi-rise building in the Chicago Loop basically turned over the keys to me. What a thrill to transform, reconfigure and redefine this space!

Suburban Sanctuary

This first time, new to the area, home buyer decided to purchase a home in the suburbs of Chicago and work from afar with me. Our goal was to remodel this outdated home and turn it into a warm, young and fun contemporary environment. A beautifully reworked custom staircase and a unique guest bath make this home a sight for the senses!

Updated Farmhouse

What do you do when you’ve bought a new home and are looking forward to having time to select all new furnishings, only to have the house you’ve lived in for forty years sell faster than you’d anticipated? You call me, of course! The stunning prairie views surrounding the farmhouse were the primary selling point for my clients, and we wanted to bring that same beauty and warmth into the home. The color palette I selected contains many elements of the outdoors, and the furnishings include a spectacular dining room chandelier that makes one feel like they are dining under a canopy of trees.
Stay tuned for the big reveal!

City Chic

Second time is a charm! After working on her family home seven years ago, this single mom reached out again for my help in fulfilling her dream of living in the city now that her kids are almost out of the house. It was imperative that the new residence be ADA compliant, and we wanted ease of use and a bit of elegance to accent the beautiful city views. Because this is a significant life change for her, my goal with this residence is to change direction in the design
aesthetic that we had used in her previous home. Stay tuned for the big reveal!
