“Authentic. We wanted the house to have real materials – wood window and doors, marble countertops, and handmade items throughout. Our favorite element in the house is the artisan zellige tiles in our kitchen.

Hardworking. The finishes needed to be easy to clean; spaces need to be functional. We wanted what was utilitarian over what was trending. This helped when we decided about a powder room. Builders and house plans typically have a powder room, but this important quality we wanted in our house made us question the need. So, we took it out.

Warm. The house needed to be comfortable, open, and inviting. To offset the white and gray, we made sure to have warm elements of wood and a huge fireplace.

Intentional. Everything must have a place and purpose. When designing the kitchen, we created two rooms on each side for dish storage and pantry. It didn’t make sense to us to have the fridge separate from the rest of the pantry and having to open and close tons of cabinets for dishes.”

 

“Katherine and Patrick had a little extra to cheers for on their Big Day. Hello, Chicago, World Series winners! The city that brought these two gorgeous love birds together—so what better place to say at their I do’s?”

“Dorothy told us that there’s no place like home, and for Sam and Morgan, that couldn’t be truer. They knew that the perfect place to hold their wedding was the backyard of Sam’s childhood home. The couple chose to keep their planning as simple as possible, deciding to focus on a meaningful ceremony, family, and great music.”

Sharing this beautiful day of Morgan and Sam’s on Once Wed!
