Located in the northern suburbs of Chicago, this 1929 charmer was in spectacular condition when purchased by the current homeowners, it was just in need of a few updates. Enter interior designer Alexandra Kaehler. Together, they changed the kitchen counters and about half of the kitchen cabinets. Then the lighting, paint, and wallpaper was changed throughout.
The client “loves English interiors but wanted that to be translated into a brighter, more saturated aesthetic,” said Kaehler. The house reads like a rainbow. Every room with a different color palette than the one before.”
A gift from the homeowner’s grandmother, the de Gournay wallpaper in the dining room determined the color choices for the entire first floor, especially since it is such a centrally located space in the home, Kaehler explained. Florals, chintz, antiques, and family heirlooms combine to create a home that is warm, cozy, oh-so-pretty, and will also stand the test of time.

Every room is stunning!
Very nice! I like her style a lot. Beautiful use of colour. Thanks for sharing 🙂
I love this house!!! The decor is wonderful…so colorful and PRETTY! I’ve seen enough beige, greige, and gray rooms to last a lifetime. I prefer the beautiful colors and patterns and how they work so well together! A breath of fresh air.
Anyone know what the blue and green fabric is that used in the bedroom? (walls, curtains, etc.) I just love it and I haven’t seen it before…
I believe it is ‘Soane Britain’- https://www.soane.co.uk/fabrics-wallpapers/fabrics/dianthus-chintz-lapis-on-ivory-linen
I’ve been looking at this fabric/ wallpaper myself before I saw it featured here!
According to their website they ship worldwide.
They also make custom furniture that looks really nice.
Hope this helps 🙂
I LOVE the green in the sun room. Did the designer share the paint color?
That is my favorite color in the house ! I’d like to know what it is also.
