Home Inspiration

The homeowners of this home moved from 1870s Victorian home to a co-op on the 22nd floor of a building overlooking Lake Michigan. They found themselves with a house full of furniture that were too small for their new home. The co-op’s spacious rooms, including a 34x19-foot living room with 10-foot ceilings, demanded furniture with weight and heft, says Jessica Lagrange, a Chicago interior designer and longtime friend who came to the McEnirys’ rescue. “Their other home was beautiful,” she notes, “but its rooms were smaller and darker. Here, everything is grand and on a much larger scale.”



My favorite room has to be the living room. I love the scale of the panels that are “made in China, the designs are hand-painted on textured papers that were installed in strips by a paint contractor. Framing the panels are moldings that flank 9-foot-tall double doors at each end of the room. “
