Design for a Cure

A few weekends ago, Alex and I were invited by my best friend Kim to attend a benefit for Colon Cancer research in Chicago. The event was called "Design for a Cure" and showcased various apartments and condos in a very cool building in downtown Chicago. Each space was created by a different designer using each of the Earth Elements. Below are my favorite (Fire) and Alex's favorite (Wood). (Notice my favorite has way more pictures.) It was a wonderful event for an amazing cause!

This room had me at hello. I love color, especially when it is played off cool textures and prints like the zebra on the bench and the red silk clover chair (which I covet!) And check out that view! Not bad.

You know I'm a sucker for blending the traditional with the these wingback chairs and traditional chest juxtaposed with the modern art and accessories were right up my alley!

This apartment was actually a studio so that bed is a Murphy bed! You'd never know!

This room was very unique. I love the artwork and the warm tones of the furniture and walls. This room had to be roped off because the contents were so pricey!

Love the artwork behind the bed. Very cool.
