Take a look inside this modern Chigaco home and discover how the interior design plays with classics and twists them for a modern look!
Emily Mackie of Inspired Interiors is the expert behind this stunning project. The interior designer paired inherited pieces with modern designs creating timeless ambiances filled with modern, yet classic, touches.
Emily’s clients approached her with a very unique request – they wanted the interior designer to par their inherited pieces with modern classics and combine their existing furniture into their new house located in Ravenswood, Chicago. Searching for the best pieces to incorporate the clients’ home, the interior designer traveled to Paris to the renowned Maison et Objet where she found Italian and Portuguese brands that have long been known for their high-quality craftsmanship.
Let’s discover the timeless interiors of this Chicago house.
When decorating this house Mackie faced a big challenge – which was to create intimacy in the large scale space the home features. That was the case for the dining room, a large room with high ceilings that were offset by the towering candlesticks and the chandeliers from LUXXU. The long dining table from Imaestri was the perfect choice to fill the space, while the blue accents added richness to the interior.
For the interior designer, learning about each piece of furniture or home décor and its story is a way of enhancing the beauty of a room. Emily truly believes that a piece is elevated from ordinary to extraordinary when the piece is crafted by an artisan.
The living room has a soft, yet luxurious, atmosphere, where custom furniture, modern designs, and textured details play together. Several styles and different shapes add depth to the design of this stunning space!
The house is definitely an eclectic mix of styles, with rooms decorated in mid-century modern style as the living room above. The clients already owned much of the furniture that was combined with new additions, making a statement.
Decorated in soft tones like blush and lavender, the romantic master bedroom in this modern Chigaco home is an experience of immersive comfort with soft velvets, plush upholstered chairs, and details that add further coziness into the room.
