Description:

A big challenge was to make it all cozy and not sterile looking, so I used a lot of natural elements and finishes (wood, wool, woven natural fibers), as well as a few select family pieces.

Overall I think we did achieve our goal. The house feels really clean and minimal, but still warm even during Chicago winters.

My favorite part of our home is definitely the wood burning fireplace.

When it’s cold out, we love to light a fire and sit in the living room reading, or drinking wine and playing Cards Against Humanity with our friends.
