Summer Thornton’s Condo – SOLD in Lincoln Park

Chicago DesignInterior Design Inspiration

Update - Condo Is SOLD... Not quite a true interior design 'inspiration' post, but thought we would let everyone know that I'm listing my condo for sale.  It's definitely a bittersweet moment.  Josh and I have loved living there, but alas, it is time for a move to get a bit more space.  Sad to leave it, but hoping that someone will buy it who can enjoy it as much as we did.  It's been such a fun place to live, and we've enjoyed seeing it published in so many blogs and magazines (House Beautiful, CS Interiors, Tribune Magazine, Apartment Therapy, and so many more). If you're curious, here are some of the things we've done to the place since we originally bought it back in 2007:

  • Renovated the Kitchen - custom cabinetry, high-end appliances (Bertazzoni range, F&P fridge, Bosch, etc), marble countertop and shelves, mirrored backsplash, Brass and gold fixtures
  • Installed new electrical and lighting in kitchen
  • Added built-in bookshelves in Living Room
  • Added in-unit washer and dryer (full size)
  • Renovated the bathroom - new custom vanity, herringbone ceramic wall tiles, new marble mosaic floor, polished nickel fixtures, updated plumbing to all new copper (both in-unit as well as risers from the basement)
  • Restored molding and trim to original condition
  • Installed new closed-combustion furnace system
  • And of course we decorated it...we'd even sell it furnished for the right price ;O)

  • And of course the full real estate listing can be found here.
Can't wait for someone else to enjoy this place as much as we have.  And the best news is, once we sell it we'll have another project to share with you as I'll be taking on a new home design.  So with that, if you're in the market for a condo in lincoln park, or you know someone who is, feel free to pass it along...
