A pied-a-terre full of color and personality.

Located in Chicago’s Gold Coast, this condo is a home away from home for empty nesters who frequently visit Chicago. For their second pied-a-terre, we worked within the footprint of the space to create an urban-modern vibe with exciting modern tribal influences and a dash of whimsy because our clients wanted luxurious furnishings and finishes to put everyone in a laid-back vacation mood.

We repurposed furnishings from the previous condo, using them in a fresh, imaginative way to give this condo its own personality. In keeping with their upscale-casual lifestyle, this husband and wife wanted modern, clean lines and a luxurious “put your feet-up” feeling. They love to entertain and wanted a space to accommodate visits from their two grown children and four grandchildren. They are not afraid of color – and neither are we. Their gracious lifestyle and open-door policy to friends and family was the jumping-off point for the warm vibe that permeates the residence.
