A few weeks ago I had the honor to work with Emily Charron & Blair Staky, the team behind Chicago’s lifestyle website Wandeleur to work on an exciting project titled “When Interior Design Meets Fashion“.

When talented luxury designer Donna Hall, and the team at Wandeleur asked me and three other Chicago bloggers if we wanted to take part in this exciting project I immediately said “Yes”.

Why?!

Because, besides fashion, I also have a love affair with interior design, I really do. When my husband and I purchased our first home together we took such pride in it to make it our own. We completely gutted our house ourselves, we put in new floors, painted the walls, and I even learned how to put in a back splash to our kitchen and bathrooms walls. Yes, if I wasn’t a fashion/jewelry designer I would most definitely be a interior designer. But enough about that.

It was truly exciting to explore Donna Hall’s newly-refreshed home. From Donna herself, “The overall approach was to honor the architecture of the early 1900’s but modernize it by adding elements of French Moderne period, hints of Miami Deco, and glimpses of the Hollywood Regency era.

Get all the scoop, and tap into the insight of Donna Hall’s apartment HERE and be mesmerized.

As always, thanks much for reading & a BIG THANK YOU to the amazing team at Wandeleur and to Donna Hall who was kind enough to share her living space with us for a day.

Much love.
