The founder of design studio of the same name Julia Buckingham invented and even patented the word that best describes the style of her interiors – “modernique”. In her understanding, these are interesting and non-ordinary living spaces, which necessarily have their own feature, which is an unexpected, bright piece of furniture or decor. Thanks to such boldness, her work balances on the edge of modern American classics and eclecticism. In a word, her portfolio is cool and entertaining. Enjoy!
The interiors of this Chicago condo represent an exquisite mix of several completely different styles and trends in design. Firstly, these are objects of classics and antique details, such as paintings, vintage bureaus, small tables. Large furniture and decor can be attributed to the modern style, some elements are exclusive and “one of a kind.” Also in the decoration, we can see notes of industrial style – metal, leather. A special place is given to golden details and accessories, which are presented in each room. Such a unique home!
The Gray Hotel in Chicago provides stylish interiors and comfort at the highest level thought out to the smallest detail. Inspiration for the design was the famous Art Deco style, but the interiors are also full of contrasts. For example, guests are greeted by an elegant white marble hall and a staircase, and then they enter a dark bar-library. The are both light rooms of pastel colors, and dark ones. Such a game of opposites makes The Gray Hotel a place of attraction not only for tourists, but also for businessmen, politicians, and also weddings and conferences. Wonderful place!
It’s the wonderful details that created such a festive feel in this cozy Chicago home. Figurines, candles, small bouquets of flowers – every small piece of decor is important here. Of course, after the holidays are over, all this beauty will have to be removed to the closet until next season, but just look how much happiness, coziness and good mood is in this decoration. Enjoy!
Music is in charge in this wonderful house in Chicago: all family members from big to the youngest are musicians, so it’s no surprise their home is like a music sheet – clean black and white. But against this clean background, a real life plays with all its colors, especially on Christmas, when the house is filled with sparkling decorations, green decor, and of course joyful music. What a beauty!
Such cozy holiday decorations remind the famous “Home Alone” movie. This home, like the McCleister family mansion from the film, is located in Chicago. Christmas socks on the fireplace, garlands, spruce twigs and a million small things that create the very spirit of Christmas. Also, the owners put two Christmas trees – one in the living room, another in the bedroom – and decorated them in different ways. And this is an excellent option for those who can not choose the style for the main symbol of holidays – you can have two or even three trees! The main thing is that all the decor and the process of preparation give you joy!
We often publish festive interiors during the winter holidays period, but this is probably the first time we have a Christmas loft here. But to be honest, there is not much of festive decor here – just a beautiful tree and a few garlands in the living room – but you will agree how cozy it became in this home! How are your preparations?
The New Times once named Kara Mann among the most interesting and promising American designers of our time, and described her signature style as “excellent balance of sophistication and edge.” Interestingly, before opening her studio in 2005, Kara Mann worked as a fashion stylist, and before that she received her degree in fine arts at Tulane. All this broad experience, as well as an excellent sense of taste, help her create wonderful living spaces. Enjoy!
Sometimes when you add a bit of glamorous decor and accessories, your ordinary beige interiors can turn into a very elegant and refined home of a modern city. However, in this beautiful apartment in Chicago there is an abundance of interesting interior object and details and almost every one of them worth admiration. We especially like the wall with a gallery of frames in the living room – looks impressive!
The dark interiors do not necessarily have to be gloomy and boring, and this house in Chicago is excellent proof. Contrasting colors and unusual artwork create an atmosphere of creativity here and make the interior look unlike any other. If you look at the details more closely, it may even seem that the interior tells a story, and all the items in their places are not just that. Hope you also like this unusual and catchy home!
