Bucktown home 2012
Vintage, typical Chicago Carriage house with traditional charm and modern updates. This newly married, young couple wanted to honor the traditional character of the home but update it in a more fresh, urban and sophisticated vibe. Small rooms in succession made the space challenging but we expanded the dining area into the former back porch which enabled us to incorporate a much desired dining area for entertaining guests and family. We transformed the former dining area off the kitchen into an industrial feeling "lounge/bar" area - perfect for pre-dinner drinks and entertaining. Elegant wallpaper and gorgeous hand embroidered silk roman shades compliment the classic color palette of soft grey and blues throughout. A masculine and cozy study off the formal living area provided much needed home office space and created another inviting sitting area in which to relax and read. This beautiful vintage home packs a lot of elegance and timeless design elements/textures into a small space - and does so with class!
