Located in one of Chicago’s nearby suburbs, the home contains a fascinating backstory. It was originally built by famed architect Elbert Peets as part of a planned community for GIs returning from WWII. By the time Olaniyi arrived, the home’s previous resident, a carpenter, had made some interesting design choices. “There was floor-to-ceiling brown and gold 1970s tile in the bathroom, psychedelic metallic wallpaper in the dining room and plaid wallpaper in the kitchen,” she remembers. “But the bones were good.”
In the entry of the home, designers chose to use colors that would acclimate guests to the home's bold metallic and contrasting neutral color palette. The artwork does exactly that, adding glam to the space without detracting from the apartment's beautiful views. Patterned wallpaper with a three-dimensional quilted effect was selected to envelop the space, while large scale, gold-leaf lamps sit on a console which emulates the wallpaper patter. To finish the space, designers hung a glass, Rod Sputnik chandelier for a spectacular statement upon entering the home.
