A Classic Chicago Loft Ready for Christmas

A Classic Chicago Loft Ready for Christmas

Emma Fiala
Dec 10, 2017

Name: Kristin Schleiter and Nathan Dylan Hess and Addison (a schnauzer/poodle mix)
Location: Ukrainian Village — Chicago, Illinois
Size: 1,600 sq ft
Years lived in: 2 years, owned

Kristin and Nathan had to do a lot of work after purchasing this space. The chain smoking previous owner had been there for years and the loft was covered in (stinky) carpet. Ceiling ducts 12 feet off the ground were a grimy, salmon color and in an overall unattractive state. After a lot of DIY, the loft was ready for the couple's next chapter, which we got a glimpse of in their house tour last year.

This home holds a lot of meaning for the newlyweds: Shortly after moving in, Nathan proposed to Kristin on the roof of the building, which has a beautiful view of Chicago's skyline. So it's no surprise that they have taken care to decorate their loft for the holidays in the same cozy, classic way in which it's decorated all the other days of the year.

Enjoy soaking up the spirit of the season by perusing their warm, industrial modern loft decorated for Christmas.
