I have been taking a little maternity leave from blogging. My sweet baby boy is six weeks old, and I am cherishing every moment with him! In my little spare time, I enjoy keeping up with Instagram. A few weeks ago, one of my favorite bloggers, Jenny with The Foo Dog Blog, posted a tour of this amazing home in Winnetka, Illinois, decorated by one of my favorite decorators, Ruthie Sommers. I have been obsessing over it ever since! The 1920s Tudor was originally featured in the January 2011 issue of Town & Country magazine, and it is now for sale. Jenny, a fellow real estate stalker, spotted the listing with her eagle eye, and it has left me dreaming of moving to Chicago’s North Shore.
Because I simply cannot get enough, I decided to post the original Town & Country feature (images via Laura Casey) along with the listing images, and the pictures from Ruthie Sommers’ portfolio. It is such fun to compare and contrast the subtle differences amongst them. Brace yourself for some eye candy overload… This home is absolute perfection!
