When drama and glamourous details are on the menu for a doctor’s second residence. Designed by Chicago’s PROjECT. This west loop pied-à-terre had to fit the profile: a spunky black-and-white escape with hard candy hits of amethyst throughout. Even 1,800 square feet can’t confine space hell bent on having a good time. The custom wall mural in the dining area holds a few subliminal personal references, but to the naked eye it’s all street grit and ka-pow. The game zone has the electric glow of a purple fluorescent light installation, making Friday night pizza taste better. A space for the kids to bunk, an ethereal master retreat, and Jennifer’s rad geometric marble flooring in the bathroom…
I have all things “kitchen” on my mind. It may be because I am almost finished my own kitchen renovation ( I promise to share photos as soon as it is done) or it may just be that I keep coming across killer kitchens as I surf the net … like these sustainable bamboo beauties by Norwegian Ask og Eng. Choose from custom built or door fronts for IKEA carcasses. Perfect!
“A contemporary design yet sympathetic to the Victorian era of the existing house. A new pavilion structure with a dramatic roof form creates a strong connection to the outdoors & maximises natural light. Tranquility was a key concept that we followed through with keeping the finishes and textures in a soft tone with fine black detailing through the fireplace design, curtain rails, steel windows & door framing. Light filled, elegant and robust to handle family life.”
It’s what Australian architects do so well, a modern addition to a historic building without loss of integrity or style. Canning Street House by Technē Architecture and Interior Design.

I spotted his beauty of an apartment on Lagerlings and had to share because it’s not your typical Swedish style of white and pastels. A bit of rust/orange, some black and brass, a bit of mid-century modern, and some bold artwork makes this space unique.
