As I mentioned in the welcome post, this blog exists largely because of our new house, affectionately dubbed #schmiedskigreystone on Instagram. I know you’ve seen a lot of progress on insta and in my insta stories (I basically treat that platform like it’s a blog) but I have thousands of process photos to sort through on everything from replacing our stair runner to changing out light fixtures, and of course the design process…. so this will serve as a more permanent document and design resource for myself and all of you!
Long story short, we had every intention of staying in our old one-bedroom, Wicker Park apartment for at least another year. But when a year-long gas leak was discovered around Christmas–after a string of other incidents signified that place wasn’t up to code–we decided it was time to move.
