I reallllllly wanted to title this post
“Why I Went Straight Home
and Blew Up My House,”
but that sounded too
shallow and ungrateful even for me.
We were in Chicago celebrating
our anniversary (no. 24) over the weekend
and toured the Dream HOME
(the design house at the merchandise mart)
which runs through Dec. 9.
I snapped these photos quickly,
and honestly there was beauty at every turn.

I’ll share more room by room
specifics shortly but wanted to
give you a taste right away.
home office – Michael del Piero
(Hopefully there will be a collaboration with
Michael very soon on an article for print
about her design…woo hoo!)
bedroom – Michael Abrams
kitchen – Shawna Dillon
Loved this kitchen and the cute guy in it.
Shhhhhh. Took him back to my hotel.
Back at the Elysian Hotel…view from our balcony.
**all photos mine**
It was a great urban getaway
to the city and back
to my new favorite
hotel, the Elysian.
We ate way too much good food,
walked the streets forever,
and experienced a few ‘Chicago moments’
we’ll be laughing about for awhile.
Stay tuned for more dream HOME
scoop straight from the source!
