Meg's Eclectic & Affordable Apartment

House Call

Name: Meg and Brad
Location: Lakeview — Chicago, Illinois

Our apartment is in the heart of one of Chicago's most thriving neighborhoods for twenty-something urbanites. However, it is tucked in a bed of trees with more privacy than I could ever ask for.

The exposed brick and wood planked walls date back many decades. We wanted to find an affordable way to complement our vintage apartment. Scouring thrift stores and begging the grandparents for donations, we slowly pieced together some great finds. Being a young couple, we had limited resources and were forced to buy IKEA as well. Pairing new, IKEA furniture with vintage or antique pieces is a great way to make a space more unique.
