Waterfront Inspired

Wilmette, IL

This is MDG’s second project in this Lake Michigan waterfront classic condo on the Northshore of Chicago and a complete opposite feel from the last space designed, even though the units are the exact same footprint.  Our client imagined a contemporary envelope that would house their prized decorating pieces that had been collected over many years and many homes. They wanted simplicity without a lot of clutter and memorabilia.

Though the home is a neutral backdrop for the stunning art collection of our client, the neutrality is far away from boring.  Textured linens, weaves, and wools all layer to create serene sitting and sleeping areas.  The soft palette carries throughout into the bathrooms with pillowy white stones, quartzite, and marbles.  The new wide-planked flooring is a warm canvas for the whites of the walls and drapery.  The tray ceilings help create height in the eight-foot ceiling space as well as create a more efficient and attractive HVAC plan for this once segmented and stuffy space. Creative lighting solutions create an overall stunning lighting plan that highlights key design and art elements throughout.

This stunning kitchen was created in collaboration with de Giulio Kitchens in Wilmette, Illinois.

MDG utilized 3D rendering to help the client visualize the overall look they were creating.
