The November/December issue of Chicago Home features an amazing renovation of a Lake Shore Drive condo. Granted this "before" shot is seriously "unstyled" but that only adds to the level of inspiration to be gained from the ultra-sleek "after"....

The new look is a design by Sowsan Simon and it brought the circa 70's interior firmly up to date. The living room now features a Poliform wall unit, sofa, table, hide rug and bar stools from Ligne Roset and a gorgeous limestone floor.

The kitchen makeover is possibly the most dramatic (although the bathroom is pretty major too!). It went from a closed in space to an open, airy work area featuring Poliform cabinets and a concrete countertop.

Be sure to visit Chicago Home (or pick up the issue) to read the whole article by Elizabeth Blackwell and to see lots more photos of the amazing transformation.
