Sunday, we spent the evening with our friends at their new place in the city. John and Denise met later in life, fell in love and got married a couple of years ago. Meshing their two styles together was a challenge- Denise a girl who loves girly things- pink and lots of fun dishes- and John- a Texas boy who loves his longhorns and his bourbon. So they finally decided to buy a new place together and create their own style together. They found a four level residence with a fabulous view of the Chicago skyline and went to work. While trial and tribulations were abundant during the renovations, they now have a stunning home.

Walking in the courtyard through the gated entry.
Entering the main level, you are mesmerized by a glass wall- reverse painted with tree trunks.
A contemporary round dining table and black lacquered chairs sit in front of one side of the wall.
As you can see- Denise has kept a bit of pink in the home! Love this table setting.
A black lacquered wood cabinet houses a bar next to the dining area.
The mirrored back makes the space seem larger, as it reflects the painted glass wall.
