Who Doesn't Love a Good Before and After?

This summer, I have had the pleasure of transforming several rooms of an historic home in the Kenwood neighborhood of Hyde Park. For the locals, everyone knows it as the "Poppy House". It is famous for the poppy stained glass windows through out the original part of the home. The second owner added an addition, which included kitchen and family room. 

My client has a modern eclectic style that needed to blend with the history and the prevalent wood work. My goal was to blend a modern vibe with the prairie history. For the living room, I wanted to keep it elegant, calming, layered textures- with a pop of jade green. 

Below is the living room, next week I will share the before and after of the family room.
