“We embrace the concept of “Living with Art” in every project we do, as we believe that art is central to crafting spaces that are authentic to our clients’ tastes and lifestyles. Our installation boldly exemplifies this notion, embodying a “his and hers” sitting room, lush in detail and enveloping in its use of art. The deep jewel-toned backdrop creates the perfect setting for dramatic and thought-provoking works by artists from around the world.” – Vincere

Broker Janet Owen Closes $11.9 Million Sale, Highest in Three Years in Chicago

RNDD Member and Chicago, Illinois, residential real estate broker Janet Owen of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff Realty Group’s Michigan Avenue office, has closed the highest single-family home sale in Chicago within the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) in three years with an $11,900,000 sale at 1950 Burling Street in Chicago. The previous single-family home sale above $11 million within the MLS was also a sale on Burling Street and was also represented by Janet Owen at 1955 Burling Street in 2015, which sold for over $13 million.

“This is such a memorable day, closing on this beautiful residence and estate size grounds for just under $12 million. It’s not surprising that a home of this caliber would catch the eye of discerning buyers, and I think this is a positive indication for the $5 million and higher real estate market as a whole, showing that these types of properties at this price point are selling in the city.” – Janet Owen

Classically designed and custom built by RNDD Member BGD&C Custom Homes, this home was completed in 2013. The residence encompasses three oversized city lots and has 8,000 square feet of living space on two levels, as well as a finished lower level with a spectacular wine room. The refined formal rooms and wide open kitchen, family and informal dining room all lead to a huge terrace and lawn. The outdoor terrace leads out to magnificent views of the completely landscaped grounds with formal gardens. There is a master suite with a separate sitting room.

Owen is consistently a top broker at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff Realty Group and in 2017 was ranked within the top 1/2 of 1% of the entire national Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network.

“We are so proud of Janet for closing this listing in a short amount of time, considering this home just entered the market at the beginning of June 2018. The fact that the last single family home sale at this price point was also represented by Janet, speaks to the type of hardworking agent she is for her clients.” – David Bracy, Managing Broker of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff Realty Group’s Michigan Avenue office.

The Color Comeback with Nora Schneider Interior Design and Farrow & Ball

Nora Schneider Interior Design (NSID) is a residential design firm based in Chicago. Through collaborations that combine the spirit of each client with the essence of their spaces, NSID creates uniquely distinct experiences.

Nora works efficiently to produce exquisite design solutions. NSID specializes in the juxtaposition of ancient and modern influences, which result in a layered approach that ultimately reflects the lives and loves of those who inhabit each space.

A major component in each of Nora’s designs is color. It has always played an important role in her work.

“I’m delighted to see color making a comeback. One of my favorite quotes is from Carlos Mota, an interior designer and creative thinker who said, ‘Beige is not a color.’ I can relate to that and suspect we could all use a little more color in our lives.” – Nora Schneider

We asked Nora to select 3 colors from fellow RNDD Member Farrow & Ball’s repertoire that she is currently inspired by.

Her first choice was Calamine (No. 230): Delicate pink with a touch of grey.

“Calamine is indeed named after the lotion we all used as children to soothe nettle stings and rashes! A light touch of grey prevents this subtle pink from being too sugary, giving a much fresher finish. In smaller rooms it becomes intense, but in larger well-lit rooms it feels much more delicate.” – Farrow & Ball

One color in particular that Nora enjoys working with is black. She will be working with Farrow & Ball’s Pitch Black (No. 256) for her vignette in Ligne Roset’s showroom for the 4th Annual RNDD Fall Gallery Walk coming up on September 7th, 2018.

“Pitch Black is as pure a black as you can get and is strong and uncomplicated in all lights. Named after the dark sticky residue of coal tar often used in roofing, this true black has an unsurpassable depth and almost velvet quality. As with All White at the other end of our color palette, it is easy to understand and indispensable for ironwork, woodwork or even walls if you are feeling daring!” – Farrow & Ball

“I’m thrilled to see black become an important and accepted color in interiors. Black has always been so strong in fashion. I myself have always been a lover of wearing black, and now more people are open to it in their homes. I love the drama of black and how it enhances other colors. I like to use it as a neutral. When used on walls it can make the artwork sing.” – Nora Schneider

Bucknerphoto20170428 R web- copy.jpg

Nora is often drawn to rich and saturated, but not bright colors. Farrow & Ball’s Rectory Red (No. 217) perfectly embodies this description.

“This rich clean red is named after the charming village houses built over the years for the clergy. Rectory Red is a blackened and aged version of Blazer and feels much more sophisticated, especially when contrasted with Red Based Neutrals such as Joa’s White. It is a warming color which will intensify when used in a small space to create the most welcoming of rooms.” – Farrow & Ball

Nora’s one piece of advice for homeowners?

“Don’t be afraid of color. Embrace it.” Do it for yourself, not the next owner of your home

About Nora Schneider Interior Design: Design, like life, is a creative and organic process. NSID exists to craft and hone spaces until they reflect the most personal aspects of your life. Striving to make the journey as thrilling as the outcome, we start with something you love and build. We make collaboration the cornerstone, and respect your desire to be involved (or not) as we meticulously manage the specifics. Each interior pulses with its own distinctiveness as diverse and unique as its inhabitants. Simply stated, we want your home to be your favorite place.

About Farrow & Ball: At Farrow & Ball we are dedicated to creating unmatched paint and wallpaper using only the finest quality ingredients and high levels of rich pigments, following in the footsteps of our founders John Farrow and Richard Ball. Still made in Dorset, England, our home since 1946, our distinctive and inspiring paint colors and finishes are renowned for their depth and complexity, bringing walls around the world to life. Today, the unique Farrow & Ball look transforms modern and traditional homes, large and small, inside and out.
