Location: East Lakeview - Chicago, Illinois
My former place was featured in a House Call about how I downsized from a Dallas house to a Chicago apartment. Last year, I bought my current condo and faced a whole new set of decorating challenges.
I had to learn to decorate in an open concept space that includes a kitchen, dining room, living room and entryway. I had to select harmonious colors and styles while keeping the look interesting. You will notice that I took more chances with color in this place. While I kept my beloved Quietude, using it in the dining room, the bedrooms are painted much deeper colors, as is the entryway. The condo is 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath and is laid out in a very functional floor plan that I believe people would find useful.
