I moved to Chicago recently from NYC, and am lucky enough to have parents who have a gorgeous apartment right on Lake Shore Drive. So I'm living with them until I have enough to get my own place, and I have to say, it's a pleasure. My dad is the design buff of the family (and the cook!) and is responsible for my love of design. He subscribes to pretty much every magazine ever, and insists on keeping his favorites. I used to get in trouble for ripping pages out when I was a kid. Is that an omen or what? I've helped a bit with the design as well, and even though it's not quite reflective of my own personal style, it is stylish and incredibly livable. The color coordinated bookshelves and little vignettes are pure Urban Flea! Check out some informal shots below, and let me know what you think!
