For this chapter of our House Tours, we took a break from homes we photograph for our catalog and knocked on the door of our Sr. VP of Design and Creative, Chip DeGrace, and his wife Cynthia. Nestled on a cozy street in the Chicago suburb of historic Elmhurst, Chip and Cynthia have created their home sweet home, complete with unique furniture pieces and dazzling design ideas.
The blue range caught their eye instantly and, though they did a lot of renovation, they made sure to work around the range, as it became the focal point of the kitchen. And the area rugs and runners (all FLOR, naturally) throughout the DeGrace house each make their own design statement while tying together different rooms and even sections of the home.
What was once a trail of old broken up flagstone when they purchased the home has evolved into a beautiful outdoor creation that provides a serene spot surrounded by nature; the perfect place to spend some quality time alone, or with your favorite people.
