I am all about mixing old with new, classic with contemporary. I am a big believer that a home should be an intimate reflection of the owner’s personality and really cannot be boxed into a single style. I treat every home differently and don’t implement a “signature stamp” onto any project. In the end, its the homeowner who has to live in it, and I want it to be something personal and beautiful that they can enjoy and take comfort in for years to come. When you think that pieces have nothing in common remember that they have in common what is most important, the fact that you love them. And often times, it is unexpected pairings that turn out the best.
Check out this home in Chicago Home + Garden that epitomizes my mentality of live in what you love, not what you think you should love. I adore how this home pulls together unexpected elements literally from across the globe to create a cozy haven that is truly one-of-a-kind.
