Name: Kim Location: Evanston Size/Type: 3500 sq ft house Years Lived In: 5 This is AT:Chicago's first suburban House Tour. Kim was initially excited to give us a "garden tour," and we are so happy that she extended the glimpse to inside her colorful home as well. While not a full house tour, we enter here from the garden into the dining room for a bit of Evanston charm. There is much inspiration to be taken from Kim's color choices, outdoor living, and attention to detail. We wish we could have been there for the photoshoot to experience it all firsthand!
