2016 Award - Residential Historic Renovation

Susan Brunstrum and her team at Sweet Peas Design completely renovated this 1920s home and carriage house in an upscale Chicago suburb. They updated it for 21st-century living while retaining the footprint and warmth of a vintage residence in this historic Heritage Area.

Among the client’s goals: a larger master bath and kitchen, a pantry and powder room, more space for entertaining, and as a former Californian with a passion for the outdoors, she wanted to convert the original attached carriage house into a three-season sun room for indoor-outdoor living.
The results reflect Susan’s signature LivableLuxe style, “the little black dress of interior design. Comfortable yet refined, it is layered, collected, rich in details and expertly edited. “We believe that each home should tell the story of those who live there,” said Susan.

Susan and her team created the separation of his-and-hers bathrooms in this single, luxurious space. With some ingenious space planning and custom-designed elements, they replicated a five-star hotel master bath for this high-powered couple who often get ready at the same time, but didn’t want completely dual master bathrooms. By eliminating the big soaking tub and utilizing wasted space in the center of the room, Susan provided back-to-back sinks with tall mirrors as a privacy fence, individual toilet compartments, his-and-hers storage space and a car wash-sized shower.
