Lake Shore Drive Penthouse by Kara Mann

Lake Shore Drive Penthouse by Kara Mann

Last week we added Chicago designer Kara Mann to our Marketplace store and service guide. Since people seemed drawn to her moody aesthetic, this week we thought we'd go a little deeper into her portfolio. This Lake Shore Drive penthouse is a spot-on representative of her dark, dramatic style.

We were struck by the combination of matte and glossy finishes, the collection of contemporary photography, and the out-of-the-ordinary details (love that skull lamp!). The dark brown walls look great with pink bouquets, warm gold rugs, and yellow-green curtains.
