A home straight out of Europe. A space fit for a high society Parisienne. Yes, except it's actually right here in Chicago and home to talented designer Stephanie Wirth of Leo Designs.
How could this be anything but love at first sight? A blend of European antiques and period pieces updated in white and anchored by a glossy black floor. This is the stuff my heart is made of! Oh and let's not overlook that pretty little bar cart in the middle. It gleams with perfection.
What's so unique about this space is that it has no area rugs. I can't remember the last time I've seen a home without them. The look is expansive, raw, and unforced. Also, the lack of vibrant colors encourages us to notice the raw attributes of the space - the beautiful wood floors, the crown moldings, the ceiling medallions, the doorways.
What a poetic corner of the house. All those right angles and linear aspect of this space are foiled by the curvaceous, ornate features of the chair. Like I said...love at first sight!
