The annual "Nest" issue of the Chicago reader is out and features a fun look at the favorite rooms of six Chicagoans. From an architect to a fashion scholar, the folks behind the decor are just as interesting and varied as the styles of their homes...

Here are three that we enjoyed - be sure to click on over to (or pick up the paper copy of) the Reader to check out the full article and all the photos.

Shown above, left to right:

1. Christen Carter of Busy Beaver Button Company - Her favorite room is the kitchen of her 1912 apartment, located on the top floor of a two flat in Palmer Square. (And, yes! Were' working on scheduling an upcoming "house tour" for Apartment Therapy)

2. Brad Lynch, Architect - His favorite room is the "one big room" where he and his family "do most of their living". It is part of the home Lynch designed for his family two years ago which replaced the bungalow they had lived in since 1990.

3. Virginia Heaven, Professor - Her favorite room is the high-ceiling living room of her Rogers Park vintage condo decorated in a wonderfully decorative eclectic style.
