Rooms by Summer and Amy
Two designers + a room full of decor lovers + lots of questions and photos = our AT Offline meetup last night. Our guests, Summer Thornton and Amy Lenahan spilled the beans on what it's like to work as a designer in Chicago...

During the meetup, we got to see photos of past projects and their own style at home. We heard about their process of working with clients, their choice of best low budget buys and where they would splurge, their favorite sources of inspiration, local shops they love and much more. They answered our questions as well as those sent in by group members and we wrapped it all up with a new house tour, soon to be shown on AT: Chicago, of Summer's own one-bedroom apartment in Lincoln Park.

Huge thanks to both Summer and Amy for sharing their knowledge, inspirations and information on the design business with Apartment Therapy!

Thanks, as always, to the lovely and welcoming staff of DWR Tree Studios.

Thanks to everyone who came out to join us in our interior obsession - it was super, as always, to chat and mingle in person and communicate WITHOUT using Movable Type!

My only regret about last night's Meetup? I was having such a good time I forgot to snap any photos of the good-looking attendees and designer panel - apologies for not being a better archivist!

Hope to see you all again next time - to join the group and keep in touch about future events, click here.
