Tour a Charming Family Home on Chicago's North Shore

Interior design firm Lewis Giannoulias creates a glamorous, yet comfortable look in the suburban Chicago farmhouse of a young family with four kids, one dog and two cats that loves to entertain.


The clients built their dream home from the ground up to be beautiful while simultaneously warm and welcoming.


As the heart of the home, the family room serves as a space where everyone has a comfortable spot to sit and relax. The design team chose fabrics and finishes that will stand the test of time with this active family.


Key in designing the kitchen was accommodating everyone's needs. It features plenty of concealed storage for everyday use items, a glass fronted cabinet to show off some flashier pieces and a generous island to gather around.


The breakfast nook was designed to be a place for meals and game nights alike. Laminated, modern toile on the banquette pairs beautifully with the zinc table and compliments the unexpected, yet warm wall color.


The dining room is the first thing you see when you enter the home. Gorgeous grasscloth wallcovering, an antique farm table, comfortable chairs and flowing drapes set the stage for an intimate dinner party, a holiday blowout or anything in between.


The family has an extensive book collection and wanted a fresh take on what is classically a stuffy space. The reading room embodies their love of books as well as their vibrant personalities.


A small niche set to the side of a teen's room allows him space to do homework or just hang out with friends.


The master bedroom relies on neutral tones and a perfectly placed niche to make the room feel cozy and serene. The antique bed served as a muse for the room's design.


The master bath is both ethereal and approachable. A true spot to relax and recharge.
