Astor Street Residence
Working with Carr-Warner Architects and Fisher Builders, Lauren and her team did a full-gut renovation on a historic, five-story home and coach house on Chicago’s prestigious Astor Street. They assisted Carr-Warner and the client in all aspects of construction and then went on to furnish the home with transitional warm tones throughout, that showcase the client’s accessories and modern art collections to their fullest.
“I so appreciated the opportunity to renovate and decorate this historic house, preserving the original outside of the home but changing the color palette, the interior architecture, and design to reflect the client’s modern tastes.” ~ L.C.
