Lake Forest Traditional

The Backstory

An art curator and an architect purchase their first home on a beloved street in Lake Forest. The vintage charms abounds, but needs some serious polishing to spruce up the tired interiors. Inherited family furniture and an art collection need to be lovingly on display.

Comfortable, curious, artistic, organic, personable

Our Approach

We designed with a heavy mix of antique pieces, which were all given a new life through reupholstery and restoration. Layering patterns with textiles, rugs, wall coverings and artwork give this interior a collected and approachable feeling. A pastoral toile wallpaper in the dining room is quite striking along with elegant custom window treatments.
