The current issue of Elle Decor features Nate Berkus's newly decorated place - overlooking Lake Michigan, located in a vintage 1929 building, in an apartment which was renovated in the 40's by architect Samuel Marx. So, yeah, it's got quite a lot going for it already but the decor is some tasty icing on the cake. Very masculine, classic and elegant but not stuffy, it is a glamorous city home filled with 90% vintage and antique pieces. Jump below for photos...
Another shot of the living room features two items from another Chicago source, Jayson Home & Garden - a black linen sofa and 1960's vintage green armchair.
The kitchen features green metal cabinets, original to the space.
We love the look of a wall of books. The sofa is by Nate Berkus.
More books - this time on an oversized yellow velvet ottoman. The fireplace and oak walls are original.
Nate, Henry and Emma.
