hot spot: parisian twist.

Chicago’s famous for its killer architecture. Think: steel and glass and incredible feats of engineering. Sometimes, though, all that minimal modernism puts you in the mood for something a little more, well, more. And if excess is what you’re after, we’d be hard pressed to find anyone who does Beaux Art decadence better than the French. So, it’s no surprise that when Chicago architect Scott Himmel was tasked with designing the interiors of this Streeterville living room, he looked across the Atlantic for inspiration. Himmel channeled 1920s Paris with classic details like herringbone floors and delicate moldings but kept the space firmly planted in the present with clean-lined seating and funky nail-head trim, and we’re so glad he did. Turns out our soft spot for French accents extends to interiors: Mais oui!
