Summer In Lincoln Park

The city of Chicago sits high on my list of places to visit one day. There’s little doubt that I’d love this town.  Seeing a Chicago residence like this one, which speaks to me on every level, only confirms this hunch.  Designed by the uber talented Summer Thornton, I had to smile when I read this description on Summer’s site, “Summer focuses on evoking emotion and mood in her designs”~ because the emotion and mood that I was experiencing was full blown envy over this closet situation!

  2. That closet is to die for! I can't believe I've never been to Chicago either. I know, huh? So silly. I know I'd love it to. I think a trip is in order, Sue… Blogger's meet up? Sure we could find a built in excuse.. hee hee. I hear it's a lot like Boston. xo

  3. Chicago is truly amazing! I'm from SC and went to visit last year with a friend and we walked around literally all day – from 9 am to 10:30 pm. For a huge city, it's not intimidating at all (and has the best flowers, pizza, and popcorn around!)

  12. Yes, fab closet. And I LOVE Chicago- I haven't been for years but I remember it as a clean, cultured, civilized city. But don't go in the winter – you'd hate it – brrrr…
