The project began with a text message, “Are you available to meet and talk about designing our new home”.

With grown children out of the house, our clients were looking to downsize, start anew, and make it fun. Rebel House and the homeowners traveled to dealers in Michigan, around Chicago, into southern states, and abroad sourcing exciting finds for a fresh start. 

Everything in the new home is custom - from the paint color on the walls and cabinetry, to the living room built-ins, down to the kitchen pendants. mid century finds and THE CLIENT’S EVER-GROWING, ECLECTIC ART COLLECTION became a common thread throughout each level of the four story townhouse. The art collection culminates in a cheeky collage at the top floor retreat. Our goal was to blend old and new to create a layered gallery of the client’s treasures.
