CHICAGO SPACES



Photos reprinted with permission from Chicago Spaces: Inspiring Interiors, by Jan Parr and the editors of Chicago Home + Garden, Agate Surrey, October 2011

Having just spent some time in Chicago myself, I was especially interested to check out this great new book published by Agate that showcases some of the Windy City's most stylish homes. It was created by Jan Parr and the editors of Chicago Home & Garden and features gorgeous photos that invite you into some of the most outstanding interiors of this amazing metropolis so well known for its architecture. 


A few photos from my fabulous time in Chicago - Navy Pier and the Chicago Skyline

Here's hoping you have a warm and wonderful weekend!

Looks like you had a great time! Chicago is the best but I'm a little bias. I can't wait to check out the book! Hope you are well, Anne.

Glad you enjoyed yourself! I was there in the very late 80s and haven't been back ... eek!

Did the double-decker tour thru town, too!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I love Chicago Anne! I used to take Amtrak from Newark to Chicago, then out to Whitefish, MT. I always had a long layover in Chicago, so I used to go to the Museum - the Art Institute - the city is so clean, pretty and the people are super friendly. You look so chic in the photos Anne! I hope you have a nice Thanksgiving!! ;-))

Anne, You look so cute in your pics. It's funny...I feel like I've never been to Chicago and yet I lived there for a few months when I was an infant. I would like to check it out one day.
