The 2017 One of A Kind Holiday Show

I really enjoyed this year's One of A Kind Show at the Merchandise Mart. And so did a lot of other people, it seemed, because it was really crowded! It was nice to see some of the artists and artisans whose work I have admired over the years there, like Carla BankLucky Skye Graphics, Sam and Coop, Anne LeuckTim Jarosz, TakaraKelly MarshallMark Gleberzonand Rediscover Handbags and to enjoy food from Twisted Eggroll and Gourmet Goodies again. Here are some new artists who caught my eye:

Bennett Art
Cynthia Jones Jewelry

Recycled Reads


Steel Petal Press
Emiko Shinozaki Jewelry

Karina Llergo
Kelsey Grape
Earth Cadets
Gathered Glass
Jen Jansen Tintype Studio
Victoria Varga
Kevin O'Grady
Ken Folks
Tara Locklear Jewelry

I had to brave the elements to go to the show over the weekend. I'm looking forward to the next Spring One of A Kind show so I can go back when the weather is nicer and hopefully some of these artists will be there again.

My Latest Interior Design Project: Designed to Sell

My latest interior design project is in the condo where I used to live. Remember the groovy green kitchen I used to have?

Now it looks like this.

I encouraged the owners to keep the vintage metal cabinets, which were refreshed with a few coats of crisp white paint. The cool modern feel is accentuated by a stainless steel backsplash, a gray quartz counter top, and ceramic floor tiles with a subtle gray and white streaked pattern.

We used the same tiles in the bathroom.

Now this high rise studio is the perfect blank slate for the next person who wants to make it their home.

I am glad I had a chance to be involved in this project. If you're looking for a place in Chicago and like what you see, I'd be happy to put you in touch with the sellers. And if you need me to do an interior design project for you, I'm happy to do that as well.
