Lisa's Stylish Downsizing Story

House Call

Name: Lisa
Location: River North — Chicago, Illinois

When I moved to this 877 square feet Chicago apartment last year, I downsized from a 2048 square feet house in Dallas. My tastes had shifted to a more modern look, but I still love some of the old pieces I brought with me.

The biggest challenge was getting the look I wanted while fitting it into a much smaller space. I really love my apartment because it combines the old and the new in a way that makes me happy, is very functional and celebrates this new phase of my life in Chicago.

Thanks Lisa!
