Classic Touch: Chicago Town House Redesign

Classic Touch: Chicago Town House Redesign


When a couple with three young daughters bought a spacious Chicago town house, they had to look beyond the dated interior to imagine its potential. The home’s dark wood made it appear closed-in, and its fixtures and finishes recalled the early 1990s. On the upside, the couple knew just whom to turn to for help—designer Kim Scodro. The wife had seen Scodro’s work and felt that the designer’s style and tone were exactly what she and her husband had in mind. And so they quickly hired her to transform their new digs. “The owners had a specific feel they wanted for their home,” the designer says. “We just needed to spend time translating those visions into actual goals.”

Though the couple had been living in a traditional home, they desired a more modern vibe this time around—still classic, but fresh and clean. The design had to be warm and inviting, and kid-friendly for their three girls. “They’re very hands-on parents and spend almost every moment that they can with their beautiful children,” Scodro says. “Nothing could be too precious, and they didn’t want spaces to appear cluttered.”
