Over the weekend I posted this stunning living room on Instagram, and it was so popular I decided to post the entire home tour. Built in 1899, this Beaux Arts-style mansion is located in Chicago’s Gold Coast and was once owned by Hugh Hefner. Formerly known as the Playboy Mansion, the current owners have restored the home into a magnificent example of sophistication, elegance, and propriety. Filed with Old World details from high ceilings to ornate plasterwork, designer Gail Plechaty worked her magic, bringing a timelessness and breathtaking grandeur to the architecturally rich interiors.
