Interior Design Inspiration: Chicago DREAM Home {Michael Abrams}

Recently I shared a tour of

the kitchen in Chicago’s

Dream Home

(a design house at the Mart),

and today it’s all about a

very tranquil greigey bedroom by

Michael Abrams.

(The dream home is open

to tour until early December.)

Walls are covered in Weitzner silk wallcovering by Donghia.

The designer urges home owners

to not be intimidated about selecting art.

“Choose pieces that resonate with you.

Doing so, you will create a deeply

personal environment and experience

as well as a lifetime of pleasure.”

Larsen fabric from Cowtan & Tout for bed

Drapes, Osborne & Little

The dressing room by

Luca Lanzetta

was designed to create

the experience

of window shopping!

It kind of cracked me up.

You definitely sense an artist

or a minimalist was at work here.

The designer recommends paying attention

to lighting in a dressing area:

“Innovative lighting captures the woman

in her most radiant light…”

I mean you never know who you’re going to run into

in that dressing room!

Luca’s original artwork hanging in here may be

my favorite element in the whole

dream home…so romantic.

And I haven’t stopped thinking about the citrus

color of the mohair throw from Holly Hunt…stay tuned!

Can you imagine silk lined walls

in your boudoir and window shopping

in your dressing room?

Peace to you right where you are.

    Hmmmm… I love how this bedroom feels so soothing and warm. A really nice place to relax and sleep.

    Beautiful bedroom and is that the hubby enjoying a spot of tea? Cracks me up about lighting in my dressing room, my dressing room is a small space between our bed and closet in front of a window, natural light is best!

    Walls covered in silk…makes me want to write a fairy tale! Oh and if I get to only take two things from this house, that teapot on the ottoman and those candle-holder style spot lamps would be my pick. This is pure dig.

    yep it is.

    this is one of the rooms that in person, completely sedated me. i honestly didn't notice any of the accessories or finishes because of the low contrast. totally a cocoon.

    "You never know who you're going to run into in that dressing room!"

    In concept, I
    find this swoon-
    worthy, but in
    reality, could
    I live in a griege
    cocoon?? Not sure.
    But, I'd be willing
    to try it on for
    a few days if my
    fairy Godmother
    waved me in with
    her wand…..!

    Well, let's just say my bedroom doesn't look like that……..

    But I do really like the look of the logs stacked in the fireplace!
