This marks the first of a series of blogs we will be posting on rooms we love. We come across far more intriguing interiors than we have room for in our print magazine, so we’re sharing them with you here.

This room, designed by Christine Garrett of Garrett Paschen in Evanston, was my favorite at last year’s Lake Forest Showhouse. This cozy room is so inviting (perfect for a nap, or reading). The art wall is perfectly done, and I love the robe hung as art. Simple, pretty, charming, and easily replicated.
