Last week, for the first time, a tour of Amelia’s Chicago apartment hit the internet in a beautiful feature on one of our favorite sites, The Everygirl!  You’ve stuck with us through the kitchen renovation, the bar project,  the gallery wall assembly, the desk makeover,  the dishwasher DIY, the old chairs, the new chairs, the footstools, and of course the fireplace project… and now you get to see the final vision!  Here are some of the photos from the feature, but make sure to head on over to The Everygirl for all the images and Amelia’s interview.

    In the same resource-guide vein, I’m coveting your bedding. Where is it from?

      Oh my gosh, it’s so old! I got it at a Pottery Barn outlet years ago for a steal. It needs to be replaced, but I just love the texture! xx

    I cannot believe your couch is so white with two black dogs, I cannot keep my golden retrievers fur off of anything! Loved seeing your home and being introduced to your blog on The Everygirl!

    Beautiful home! Do you happen to know the name of the paint color in your bedroom? I love it!

    Your home is beautiful! I love your kitchen – am in the process of redoing mine and trying to do as much on my own as possible. Did you do the corner bench seating yourself? I’d love more info! It looks amazing and is just what I want!

    • thechicagolifeblog says:

      Thank you Alexa! My dad is the one responsible for the corner seating, but yes- with his help- we did it ourselves! Let me know if there’s any specific info you’d like. We built it in pieces/boxes and then assembled it in place and nailed it all to the wall. It might be my favorite part of the apartment! xx

      • Alexa says:

        Thanks for your quick response! I would love more info. If you could let me know where you got your bench and wall panels materials, it would be much appreciated! Is it wood that you painted white? Thanks again!

        • thechicagolifeblog says:

          It’s all just wood and wood trim pieces from Home Depot painted ‘Decorators White’ by Benjamin Moore… hope that helps! xx

    Hi Amelia! Love everything about your home! Is that the CB2 coffee table I spy?
    Also- I need to know, if you don’t mind, where are your gold sequin pants from? =)

  11. […] a good idea in the first place.  Even though chances are I will never again live in an apartment decorated like this.  Yes, I’m bitter, and I haven’t even started grad school yet. (I’m KIDDING. […]
