Summer 2011

Chicago, it’s actually happening: Summer has arrived! And what better way to celebrate the change of seasons than with the summer issue of CS Interiors? It’s finally time to get outside and enjoy what we love about Chicago—the design and architecture of this city, which is all too hidden during our long winter season.As I write this Publisher’s Note, NeoCon at the Merchandise Mart is coming to a close, and what an energetic three days it has been. CS Interiors was honored to host wonderful events with Haute Living and Jesse Chicago, and I was personally honored to shake our new mayor’s hand at the always-fabulous Holly Hunt party.

In this issue we elevate the experience of what it means to be outdoors. More than patio furniture and landscaping, you’ll find the most unique ideas of how to utilize your own outdoor space. We feature Jennifer Girard, a Chicago-based photographer who has converted her double lot in Lakeview into an outdoor oasis. Ponds in downtown Chicago? Who would have thought?

Feature story “Roaming Home” showcases Ryan Nestor’s indoor/outdoor abode. Nestor, of Chicago-based Barker/ Nestor Architecture + Design Firm, went back to his hometown of Lowell, Ind., and it was his vision to create a place that would effortlessly communicate with the outdoors.He succeeded in doing just that.

But don’t be fooled, it’s not all about being outside this issue. We have Chicago interiors covered as well. We’ve included some of the city’s most cutting-edge places for finding one-of-a-kind furnishings, starting with Pavilion Antiques, where owners Deborah Colman and Neil Kraus have created a local institution to all that’s fabulous in vintage.
