I have very exciting news to share!
Julia (MG Chicago) was featured in Beautiful Homes this month! They did an entire spread on one of her Chicago projects that she has been working on for quite some time.
I am so thrilled for Julia…and being the sweet, modest person that she is, she wasn’t planning on posting it on our blog. But me, being the pushy, overly excited blogger that I am, just had to share this home with you all.
Her design can be summed up as “vintage French”- a new house with a generously spacious open floor plan and traditional decor.
Outstanding architecture blended with Julia’s expertise, is what makes this entry so special! The black and white marble flooring has to be one of my favorite parts about this entry (and did I mention it’s heated too?)
I love Julia’s use of scale- the oversized clock at the end of the corridor draws your eye further into the space and makes this area feel more grand in size- as they say, large objects fool the eye into making a small space feel larger.
The formal living room exhibits a sea of neutrals with bright pops of color added into the mix. It’s hard to see, but if you look closely, you will notice the 11-1/2 foot tall coffered ceiling made out of plaster.
The master bedroom looks like such a serene space. Upholstered sage green walls, French doors, and a private balcony are just some of the appealing attributes of this room.
In addition to the entry, heated marble floors permeate the master bath as well…this is one lucky client!
Julia quotes “This ‘dressed up’ French country home is designed using ornate traditional styles. The rooms are filled with furnishings and accessories using rich and deep French country colors infused with cool and elegant neutrals. All of the rooms are filled with intricate architectural details.”
The kitchen, complete with reclaimed beams and hand scraped walnut floors, gives off a casual and rustic vibe. A beautiful marble countertop as well as painted white moulding dress up the space a tad and tie in the other, more formal areas of the home.
Antique table and chairs (that were re-upholstered in new fabric) give this dining room lots of charm.
Great work Julia! We are so happy for you…and after all that hard work, you deserve to celebrate big time!
