Feature Friday // Gorgeous Home Sold Before List

I had the pleasure of working with a great client recently. One of those clients that take your advice, and then, even when they are 9 months pregnant, they shovel, stage, and de-clutter! Because we were all on the same page, this home barely made it to listing date, selling too fast is never a bad thing.  
Here are some before and after shots.

The Best in Gray Paint Colors

I have posted many times my favorite gray colors but I realized that I never really take the time to post the pictures from the paint colors in my actual clients homes, or my own home in fact.
So here are my favorite Gray Paint Colors that I actually use

Must Have Monday // Williams Sonoma Home

I know I am not the only gal swooning over the latest Williams Sonoma Home catalogue. It has a little bit of everything. A little marsala (color of the year), some chinese inspired accents, killer brass tables and light fixtures. Could Williams Sonoma Home be any more on trend for 2015?

It was hard, but, I did pick some top pieces that won't break the bank.

Feature Friday // 819 Junior Terrace, Chicago

Another great listing has hit the market and I am so excited to share these great before and after photos. I loved working on this property for it's architectural details and original craftsmanship. These days I see homes being built in record time, sometimes complete McMansions are done in 3 months. Makes you appreciate even more the time, art, and pride that use to go into building homes. Well, 819 Junior Terrace, Chicago, reminded me of what homes were made of. 

BEFORE
Too much happening, we wanted to calm the space down to feature all the beautiful, original woodwork from when the home was built in the late 1891.
