Christine Hughes’ Chic Chicago Home

Over the weekend, I came across Chicago-based designer, Christine Hughes’ home. The young, fresh house is featured in the Fall/Winter 2015 issue of Décor. Evidently, the house is a new construction, but Christine was able to give it loads of character through special architectural details like moldings, millwork, and beautiful windows thanks to her collaboration with architect, Patrick Plunkett. I was drawn to this home for its unabashed use of saturated colors. The composition feels modern, energetic, and inviting. I love Christine’s use of deep blue hues, touches of fuchsia, and acid yellow. You’ll notice that Christine uses vibrant yellow almost as a neutral and it serves as a common thread throughout each room in her home. This house is also a testament to the fact that a neutral palette created with light grey and crisp white paint doesn’t have to equal a bland, cold environment. In fact, Christine’s home proves to be the exact opposite!
