Home tour- A decorator's modern and sophisticated Chicago loft!

This chic 950-square-foot, two-bedroom, one-bathroom Chicago loft belongs to decorator Shelby Girard. To make her small space feels lighter and airier, she painted the walls white and used L-shaped furniture to maximize seating. Purchasing primarily from affordable big-box retailers, scoring thrift finds and making a few DIY pieces, she was able to stretch her small budget. Let's check out her the outcome of her affordable designs, shall we?
