2008-05-09-jessstudio.jpg Jess sent us an email, sharing photos and info on her first place in Chicago, a 450 sq. ft. studio in Lakeview. Jump below for more from Jess:

She has this to say about her small home and business:

"I just graduated from college last May and moved to Chicago on my post-grad/self-employed budget of $2,000. But as you can see, second hand stores and Ikea can come together nicely in a "1920's French chic" style. I also design and operate my jewelry business out of the space, so you will notice some of the jewelry materials here and there."


"AT was a huge inspiration before I moved to the city and I would love to help other college grads know that they can make their first place beautiful on next to nothing."

Thanks very much to Jess for sharing her apartment with the AT Community!
