Partial Reveal!

A little while back, Mackenzie from Design Darling fame, invited me to participate in her "design dialogues" series. As a part of the interview, I mentioned three items on my bucket list. One of which was to have my work published in a magazine. And well, today, I am here to say that by some crazy crazy twist of fate, my work is being published!!!

You might have suspected this based on my secrecy about my condo, but now I can confirm it. Last month, the day before I left for Mexico, my condo was photographed for a feature in Chicago Magazine. Ummm... is this real life??? I have to say, I am still in shock.

Here is a shot of my place on the day of the shoot. Utter chaos. Yes there is a sofa in the kitchen.


So you'll have to wait until April to see most of my place, but I just couldn't wait to share the news!

In order to repay you for the 4 month wait, I am sharing pictures of the two unpublished rooms of my condo.


This space was pretty much finished when we moved in. It isn't necessarily what I would've personally chosen. But I am obsessed with our countertops, which are Quartzite. They are so insanely durable. All in all, I think it all came together nicely.

Green detail shot.




The guest bedroom has definitely been a challenge. We don't have a lot of storage space in here, so this room became the spot where we threw everything. Luckily, it has come together and I love the results. Especially that light fixture!

Let me know if you have any source questions, I'd be happy to share!
