Rescuing a 1920s Sears Home

Volunteering to “rescue” this home for a Waukegan artist and his children is one of the most rewarding projects we have ever tackled. We reorganized, updated and brightened the living spaces for this single father and his twins, in collaboration with NBC’s “George to the Rescue” and the “Meredith Vieira Show.” Inspired by the client’s artwork, we chose a neutral palette as a backdrop for his paintings and created a light-filled studio and cozy gathering space for the family.
