A Music + Art–Loving Family Home


A House in the Chicago Suburbs

The Team:

Pamela Gieseke, Designer


Marcus + Dawn Thomas, Homeowners

The Challenge:

Moving from an apartment and filling their
new home with unique styles.

The Solution:

Emphasizing the home's space + light with low slung furniture to keep sight lines open and create an easy flow for entertaining.

How It Came Together

They like to entertain, so they wanted the open living/dining room to feel like a casual lounge that was still family–friendly."

— Pamela Gieseke, Designer

Records + art collections were key inspirations in making the space feel personal.
