Before moving into our new home, I fell in love with the potential and character of each room—especially what would be my new sun-lit studio space. After gutting out most of our home, we laid ebony hardwood flooring throughout and painted every wall Simply White by Benjamin Moore. The studio, in particular, became a blank slate and allowed me to pursue my photography passion.

The entire home and studio have a natural California bungalow vibe, so I weaved in boho accents and eclectic, cozy furnishings (that would withstand two active little boys!) while still sticking to a color story of neutrals and metallics with some rustic charm mixed in. I consider it West Coast sensibility in suburban Chicago.
