The Chicago Homes of Local TV Personalities

The Chicago Homes of Local TV Personalities

More from TOC's Home Decor issue: two "house calls" with local t.v. personalities. I had a great experience interviewing both Kelly Edwards from Design on a Dime, and WTTW Chicago Tonight anchor Phil Ponce (pictured above, with his wife Ann). The difference between the two homes: On the one hand we have a Bucktown apartment steeped in black and white, DIY, and a sense of the temporary (Kelly reveals her Libra tendencies that avoid permanent design choices). On the other hand, Phil and Ann Ponce's home reflects history, years of working to maintain the home's original era, and large-scale paintings depicting family and the past.

Click here to read about Phil Ponce's Ravenswood house including the new "vintage" kitchen table, the couple's favorite painting by Ann, the Steinway piano and antique Roanoke doorknobs shown here.
Click here to see the Bucktown apartment of Kelly Edwards including the built-in wrap around bookcase, DIY dining chairs, and Art Deco mirror shown here.

We hope to do full AT-style house tours soon, showing even more close-up details and hearing more from these home dwellers.
