The new owners of this five year-old single-family home in the Ukrainian Village area of Chicago sought a more expansive, casual and contemporary feel. Being a professional chef, the husband found the existing kitchen stifling and wanted to infuse it with light, efficiency and room to move.
By eliminating the wall separating the kitchen and the living room, the design allows natural light to flow in. The sleek new finishes and lighting in the kitchen, along with the modern cabinetry, stovetop and hood, achieve a more contemporary feel. The bold transformation creates an expansive new space that is easy and bright, inviting a chef to casually create and family and friends to join in the fun.
The master bedroom has a cozy reading corner thanks to a floor lamp and well-worn club chair upholstered in a rich-looking oxblood vinyl. A crate flipped over feels right at home as a convenient side table.
Sarah Lyon, Lifestyle and interior design blogger at DC to a "T," found this peacock chair on Facebook Marketplace and paired with a Serena and Lily stool and a bohemian pillow.
