Room of the Month // by Michael S Smith

You might imagine that choosing a beautiful room to feature here would be an easy task… You’d be wrong! There are so many fabulous interior spaces that I find it almost impossible to choose one to focus on – perhaps I’ll have to upgrade to doing a Room of the Fortnight in order to give myself an adequate fix of lovely spaces!?

This month’s room is a dining and lounge in a meticulously renovated Chicago apartment building, interior designed by Michael S Smith, with interior architecture by Marvin Herman. With a portfolio of wonderfully elegant and warm interiors, Michael’s work incites a sense of restful calm and clarity, whilst also ensuring each space distinct character and originality.

In this room, a natural palette of cool pale greens, warm whites and linen combine with finely crafted furniture and painted wall paneling to create a space with effortless grace and calm. The dining table is a vintage Jansen – Royale, and is paired with an antique rug, crisp  coffee table in chrome and glass, and a soft, inviting sofa laden with cushions. It is the unusual and confident combinations of furnishings and fabrics which make this space feel like a home, rather than a magazine set, and give it a real and livable atmosphere. I particularly love the gold detailing in the dining chairs, which bring a certain French luxe to the space, and look fabulous up against the fresh green walls and the beautiful tones in the antique rug.

To have a look at the rest of this lovely apartment, head over here.
