Location: Downtown Wheaton, Illinois
I work as an Art Director in the Chicagoland area and about two months ago moved into a gorgeous, half-basement nook. In the style of one of my favorite authors, L.M. Montgomery, I like to name my homes. However, accurately naming a home that is partially underground turned out to be more difficult than expected. After many word searches and some rather depressing synonym discoveries, I settled on "The Burrow." While first known as a small underground home for furry friends, the second definition of this word is: "A place of retreat; refuge and rest." This is everything I want my home to be. Retreat. Refuge. Rest. For myself and for all who come through the door.
