House Tour: Old World Chic in Chicago

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

I pretty much love everything about this warm and eclectic Chicago apartment photographed by Roland Bello. The color palette of olive, ivory, rich browns and black is so striking and I love the layered, European sophistication each space has. These are not interiors you put together in a week but are built up over time and travels {or at least I like to imagine them that way!} The quirky touches are also wonderful - the hard hat on the marble bust is so charming and hanging coats instead of a shower curtain in the guest bath is brilliant if you ask me!

And I think this cozy home would be just lovely for fall and holiday entertaining! Are there any details which catch your eye?

What a great apartment! So warm, so sophisticated & obviously, belonging to somebody with great taste & plenty of self-confidence. I wish I lived there.

Oh, wait--I did! That's my old place, as shot by Roland Bello for O at Home's next-to-last issue, in September 2008. Thanks for giving me a few more minutes of fame, Alison!

Gosh, I could not agree more! I love the rich woods paired with the dark walls most of all. Beautiful antiques!
