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.

There's a new neutral in my life. And while it's not a new trend, it's something I've gotten really into this year. It's also technically a color, yet it pretty much goes with everything.

When Farrow & Ball reached out to ask if I'd co-host the opening of their new Chicago showroom, my answer was an immediate (and probably over-excited) yes. As you probably know, interiors are my thing, and I love their paint, so much that I used Farrow & Ball's Cornforth White in my Lincoln …

I recreated my 1st living room a few weeks ago, so now it’s on to my first little office (circa 2010). My desk was wedged in a small space between my kitchen and living room in my tiny River North apartment. See below. This workspace was very simple, but I …
