A Designer Finds Her Dream Home

 From La Dolce Vita:

I have known interior designer, Alexandra Kaehler for quite a while now. We first connected in the O.G. blogging days and have kept up with each other on Instagram. We are both designing rooms for the Lake Forest Infant Welfare Showhouse this season and I know that we are eagerly anticipating its new opening date. We recently connected when Alex shared photos of her home in Winnetka, Illinois. When Alex and her husband set out to find the right house, they were both shocked that they fell in love with the very first home they saw. It must have been kismet because they went on to buy it. While Alex loved the character and bones of the mid-century home, she had big plans for it. I was drawn to the way she was able to update a very traditional, 1958 home to make it feel perfect for her young, vibrant family! She’s punctuated the spaces with punchy wallpapers, graphic art, and interesting lighting fixtures. You’ll find antiques and vintage finds juxtaposed against modern art, a cheerful use of color, and thoughtful, personal touches throughout the house all of which speaks to my modern-meets-traditional aesthetic.
