In 2016, my husband and I purchased a typical Chicago two flat building, built around 1910, and converted it to a single family home. This was a complete gut rehab; Only two exterior walls remained, everything else was taken down to the studs and re-built for our needs.
As an interior designer, I can truly appreciate most design styles and this is why you can find a delicate balance between many of them in my own home. There is a combination of simplicity and minimalism that characterize the Nordic design, like the bright white walls and the clean architecture lines,mixed with mid century modern which you can find in some of our furniture pieces. Then there is the classic, transitional style kitchen with white shaker cabinets and white subway tiles next to traditional Victorian elements like the large entry mirror and chest, and even rustic and industrial, like The master bathroom with reclaimed wood vanity ,concrete countertop, patterned floor tiles and black frame shower screen. It is as if at first glance every room in the house is different, yet it all flows and integrates wonderfully as a whole with the rest of it the house.
