Walking into Milicent’s South End home is like being invited into a small oasis. Upon entering, guests step into a hallway with soaring ceilings and beautiful wallpaper. Milicent’s colorful and eclectic living room is filled with vintage and handcrafted pieces, while her bedroom is subdued and dreamy with unique textiles and belongings that span her entire life. The same sensibilities that inspired Milicent to launch her lifestyle label Artemis Design Company — including a self-described passion for collecting, travel, and a love of all things beautiful — shape how she decorates her home. Her creativity and collector’s eye are apparent everywhere you look.

A Cozy English Cottage in Illinois — House Tour

Name: Christine and Gabe Bridger , Emelia and Jenson
Location: Evanston, Illinois
Size: 3,000 square feet
Years lived in: 4 years, owned

During long summer walks, the Bridger family would peer into the windows of this 1920s cottage. When it finally became available, they purchased it without even stepping foot inside. The home was not period correct, nor was the space very functional, so they opened up every wall possible without losing the historic charm. During the renovation, the contractor team removed drywall in the kitchen and bathroom to deal with electrical issues. Upon seeing the beautiful brick behind the drywall, they made an “in the moment” decision to keep it (even with the possible heat loss and crumbling). They also used old bed posts for the kitchen island, barn wood as open shelving, and turned a bedroom into a charming sun room. This home was designed to be lived in and loved — it’s charming, cozy, and inviting.

We were able to incorporate a lot of natural light and ventilation with a pocket garden in the middle of the home. We also have a rainwater harvest system that saves water for garden use. I’m a photographer and the architect wanted the house to be a ‘museum of light’ so she intentionally had light enter every room a different way. Solar panels also help us save on our electric bill.”

Size: 1615 square feet
Years lived in: 2.5 years, owned

p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica}

The beautiful house you see today is a far cry from how it looked when Sarah, a designer, purchased it two and a half years ago. She had chanced upon the property when it was totally derelict and still in the very beginning stages of a renovation. But it was the incredible Victorian staircase that sold Sarah on this 1901 naval cottage…and made her put in an offer.
