My Third Chicago Apartment


Here’s a look at my third Chicago apartment, a 2-story West Town coach house that I shared with my Everygirl cofounder and our three dogs. This is the biggest place I’ve ever lived in–2 stories, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and a huge courtyard. It was also the only time I’ve ever had a roommate. We decided to get a place together since an office wasn’t in the budget, and planned on living together for one year. Once the lease was up, she and her now fiancé moved in together, and I moved into a smaller place a few blocks down the street.

Combining our decor was pretty seamless, and everything just sort of worked together. We used my Rug, TV stand and wood side table, and Alaina’s coffee table, gold side table, and lamps. The sofa was designed by us for Interior Define, and all the art and decor was a pretty split mix of both of our pieces.
