If you love interior design and you love being inspired, then you will love House & Host. It’s a new site developed by a friend of mine. She’s fantastic! The real deal. Fun, laid back, stylish, smart, passionate, inspiring. And she’s adding interior designer to her already established resume.
I was at her downtown Chicago condo in July for a work event. I think I stood in awe at nearly every point in her house. It’s that perfect. This is the kind of house you only see in the magazines. I think my favorite part of the house is the fact that it’s personal. Every niknak that she puts on display comes with a story. I just love that.
She’s a self-proclaimed obsessor (that’s not a word, is it?) of gallery walls. When you see her home photos, then you’ll see what I mean. But each wall is dressed so differently. Like the photo below. Who thinks of that? It’s smart and so tastefully done. Notice the different pictures? Everyone of them has a story. It’s what makes the wall that much more personal. And, it’s a great talking point when you’re hosting guests.
