Our New Home, Sweet Home

Ok, so this is not wedding-related, but I promised some pictures of our new home. We moved in approximately 2 months ago, but we already feel pretty settled and very comfortable in our new nest! We are in the heart of Chicago’s Little Italy neighborhood with tons of yummy restaurants within walking distance (too bad we’re majorly cutting back on eating out these days…)


The outside, we are on the third floor so we get tons of light, you’ll see!


Living room/Dining room – BEFORE

(this is the actual picture from the online listing we saw before we even went to see the place)


Living room/Dining room – AFTER

Pale gray with a bold splash of cyan.


The dining room is my second favorite room in the place! Hanging those photos required a great deal of math and they STILL aren’t quite right…


I am obsessed with these Lola benches from Z Gallerie, so they deserve a close-up :)


Kitchen – BEFORE


Kitchen – AFTER. I love the 8-foot long island! We’d like to add a white subway tile backsplash at some point.


Hallway (exciting, huh? But it gives you an idea of the layout)


2nd bedroom – aka Sweetchic Events Corporate Office. The bland white walls will be receiving a shot of aqua paint in the near future!


Master bath… that Marimekko shower curtain was just one of those things I HAD to have, hehe.


Master bedroom – BEFORE. A white box.


Master bedroom – AFTER

That patterned wall was a labor of love... each square was painstakingly created with painters table and painted over in white paint. And I love having a chandelier... it feels so extravagant :)


Still on the MBR TO DO List:

- Window treatments

- Artwork on the walls

- New bedside table and lamps

Thanks for taking a tour!
