Wednesdays Works-in-Progress (WIPs)

Lakeshore Drive Sunroom Update!

This previously underutilized room overlooking Lake Shore Drive has turned into a popular family spot.  Perfect for reading in the mornings, relaxing at night or entertaining a small group of friends.  After much searching for the perfect fabric for the windows, the roman shades have been installed.  My client’s wish was that they add a vibrant touch to the room and they really have done just that.  While we wait for the teal side table to arrive, the final task is designing the throw pillows.  They will add some color and coziness to the sofa.

Lincoln Park Bathroom Tile Ordered!

With plans started last fall, the renovation will be completed this spring.  Things are going well with a contractor secured and the tile finalized.  There are so many options for tile that it is often the hardest decision to make–and bathrooms have a lot of tile. This one will feature white penny rounds with a blue/gray tone around the edges—on the shower floor and as a stripe on walls.  White subway tile for the walls and  blue/grey floor tile which will pick up the edging of the penny rounds.  The plumbing fixtures will be finalized and ordered this week. It’s getting close!

West Loop Great Room Gets Furniture!

Now that the kitchen is mostly complete, attention has turned to furnishing the living space.  I always recommend swivel chairs for their flexibility.  They can be turned to watch TV,  look out the window or talk to others.  These small scales ones are perfect and add a punch of color to the space.  Now on to rugs, side tables and more!!
