Monday Design: Honore Loft Chicago
I have gushed before about how much I adore exposed brick walls. I've always wanted to live in an apartment that had at least one exposed brick wall and when I was little growing up in Chicago, my dream apartment was a loft with high wood beam ceilings and exposed brick walls (yes, I dreamed about apartments at 11, believe it). When I saw this pretty Wicker Park loft, it was like it had been pulled from my fantasies. It's cozy and intimate, yet raw and exposed at the same time. I just adore juxtapositions like that. Probably because my sense of style is pretty eclectic all the time too. This loft is definitely laid out and designed how I always dreamed all lofts should look. The wood beams and vintage frosted glass doors are a perfect touch too. The designer took reclaimed and found pieces to build the aesthetic in this place, which fits perfectly with the design elements of the space itself. There are also some absolutely breathtaking details, like the hand painted headboard below. But I could stop blabbering and you could see it for yourself! First seen on More Design Please.
