An Artist’s Sophisticated Chicago Home — House Tour

Name: Josh Young and Ignacio Martinez
Location: Gold Coast — Chicago, Illinois
Size: 1,000 square feet
Years lived in: 7 months, renting

Josh and Ignacio have spent the last eight years living all over the world in cities like Milan (where the couple met while studying), Santiago, and New York. Ignacio was born in Tel Aviv and grew up in Concepción, Chile. Josh spent most of his growing up years in Pennsylvania and North Carolina. After moving to Chicago last spring, they knew they wanted their apartment to not only reflect and display the elements from where they had lived and traveled before, but also represent where they are as a couple today. They have always chosen to live in historic, pre-war apartments and always appreciated the elegance and charm of these buildings…and how well modern, modular furniture look within them.

A Plant & Vintage-Filled Chicago Garden Unit — House Tour

Name: Courtney Frederick, and her cats Bruce and Pete
Location: Humboldt Park — Chicago, Illinois
Size: 1,100 square feet
Years lived in: 5 years, renting

Courtney found her apartment by chance five years ago. It was a cold and snowy Chicago night when a friend called her to come check out the apartment. She drove there in the middle of the night, barely making it on time after her car got stuck in the snow. The apartment had been vacant for a year, so the windows were covered with newspaper and the kitchen cabinets were in terrible shape. Because it was empty for so long, the electricity was shut off, so Courtney used her phone’s flashlight to look around. “Have you ever looked at an apartment in the pitch black without heat? It’s not great,” she says. Despite that, Courtney took a chance and moved in, transforming it into a warm and beautiful space she now shares with her two cats, rescued plants, and her favorite possessions.

A Renovated Industrial Modern Chicago Condo — House Tour

Name: Darcy Young & Mike Putizger with dog Moose
Location: West Town — Chicago, Illinois
Size: 1,000 square feet
Years lived in: 2 years, owned

When Darcy and Mike arrived at a building in the West Town neighborhood of Chicago for a condo showing two years ago, another unit owner in the building happened to be moving out at the same time. The door was open and they popped their heads in. It had high ceilings, an unbeatable view from the rooftop deck, and a dedicated space for the office…but it needed a ton of work. Far more inspired by this wild card option than the cookie-cutter condos they had toured — though in a rough shape — they turned to each other in the car ride home and immediately started scheming ways to fix up the space.
