A View from Above - Chicago

A sweeping view of one of the largest freshwater lakes in the world made the perfect backdrop to create a dramatic and stunning penthouse.  The client wanted to embrace and celebrate the seasonal changes viewed through her floor to ceiling windows for the interior design project. 

The design vision took its lead not only from the views, but also from the meaningful art and a ceremonial Persian rug.  The rich color palette was pulled directly from the Persian rug and threads its way throughout the space.  Even as you enter the home the feeling and mood embraces you by layering elegant patterns and decorative elements that take their direction from natural formations and nature.  A hint of the client’s passion for Asian influences, and being an equestrian enthusiast, is interspersed throughout, even in the dining room chandelier.  A bit of whimsy is seen in the Jacques Duval – Brasseur crab cocktail table.
