The focus of Chicago-based interior designer Wendy Labrum is on creating spaces that evoke a sense of timelessness by combining elements from various periods – a way of learning from the past with a view towards the future. As a mother of two young children, she also believes in developing intelligent interiors that enhance the way families utilize their homes without sacrificing the elements that inspire. Fundamental to her design approach is a belief that a home is the backdrop for our most precious memories. As such, designing them is not an “off the shelf” endeavor, but rather an individualized process resulting in one-of-a-kind environments. Living spaces should be curated, not installed. In the end her spaces are elegant and chic, yet liveable and lasting. I could not help but notice brass accents in just about every room – brass makes everything better (and more glam) IMHO.
