This historic Chicago house has undergone a transformative renovation guided by interior designer Cari Giannoulias. Preserving its rich history, she expertly blended past and present, enhancing the grand staircase and salvaging original features like panelled doors, fireplace and woodwork. The house, reimagined as a gentleman’s retreat, exudes understated charm. Muted hues and neutral tones dominate, creating a serene ambience where every element harmonises, from skirting boards to furnishings. It’s a marriage of the past and the present. The result is a timeless classic.
