Renovated Traditional Colonial Architectural Style Home

How charming is this colonial-style home?

It belongs to designer Alex Kaehler of  Alexandra Kaehler Design.

Through the years we’ve been online friends, direct messaging each other on both design and non design related matters.

We even met briefly in New York City at a design related event several years ago.

So, of course I was extra excited to see interior designer Alex’s own recently updated house – every room is so stunningly beautiful!

The most beautiful natural light in the kitchen.

Love the tall windows.

The formal dining room is one of my all time favorites.

The wallpaper is a Quadrille print I have loved for years!

The hardwood floors are such a beautiful warm color.

The master suite is so luxurious.

The wallpaper is a dream!

Even though this home is in Chicago, it reminds me of the colonial-style homes here in New England.

The back of this white colonial house is just as gorgeous as the front!

Thanks so much for sharing your lovely traditional colonial home here today Alex!

Updated! A few people have asked about the exterior paint color on Alex’s home.
