Cozy Design in Chicago

Chicago’s brutal winters are the stuff of legends, but Diane Sterling Wilson leaves the gloomy wintery colors outdoors at this Winnetka home. Tasked with creating a warm environment, Wilson used soft colors and subtle detailing to create a comforting space. “We felt it was im- portant to infuse color without detracting from the room’s architecture and layout,” she says. In the kitchen, she complemented the detailed millwork with sage green walls. Other details include a wet and wine bar, a walk-in pantry, and a baker’s pantry with receding doors, helping her client entertain and have impromptu gatherings with ease.
Now, even when the freeze finally thaws, it’s hard to imagine anyone wanting to leave this luxurious home for long.
