Gracious House Showhouse 2014

We can easily imagine this eclectic space as the lobby of a hip, urban boutique hotel with its intimate conversation groups, sleek fireplace and engaging art work. But it works beautifully too as a gathering spot for family and friends at home in this trendy Chicago neighborhood. The “deconstructed” wallpaper treatment is a conversation piece with its ripped, torn and semi-rolled applications.
