William's Wonderful Attic Apartment

House Call

Name: William
Location: Chicago, Illinois

I love my little one bedroom apartment. I bought a three flat in the Andersonville neighborhood six years ago, and moved into the upstairs attic apartment while I rehabbed the building. I fell in love with the skylights and sunlight, I've tried living in one of the larger apartments now that the house is finished but am most comfortable and at home upstairs !!

The bathroom is built into the roof pitch with the tub around a corner, which being out of sight gives the bathroom a powder room feel. I painted the angled wall in Ralph Lauren's metalic silver paint which gives the bathroom a vintage airstream trailer feel. There is a skylight over the bathtub / shower which is my favorite in the apartment.

The entry is on the floor below with the staircase open to the living room above. An Aarnio puppy is there to welcome visitors.

Thanks, William !
