A retreat in downtown Chicago designed to fit an upscale-casual lifestyle.
This upscale-casual pied-a-terre in downtown Chicago is a perfect fit for our clients who regularly fly in from Texas to visit their children and grandchildren. They love art and aren’t afraid of color, so we created an urban-chic condo with lively splashes of red-orange, engaging art and distressed wood accents that make everyone feel as if they can put their feet up and relax.
Because the condo has huge windows with expansive city views, we chose a mix of vibrant colors to create a cozy feeling inside the home. The foyer sets the tone for the entire space with its distressed wood chest, red pony painting and an art-inspired lamp with a hot orange shade. Together they tell all visitors that the rest of the home will be warm, friendly and unexpected. Creating a sense of spaciousness throughout the condo was one of our key goals. To open up the great room, we chose clean-lined, glass-fronted cabinets in the galley kitchen, which created clear sight lines into the adjacent living area.
Michelle was very attentive to our needs and requests and made our home away from home very warm and comfortable. She is very personable and easy to work with. We liked her ideas so much we are looking forward to working with her on our new home in Texas.
