Adler on the Park Showcase House

Lincoln Park history. An old — but beautifully restored — home. Sensational interior design.

These are a few of my favorite things, and this past Sunday, I got to experience all of them combined at the Adler on the Park Showcase House!

Completed in 1917 by David Adler and Henry Corwith Dangler, the residences at 2700 North Lakeview are unlike anything else in the city. They were designed after 18th century townhouses in London — British Georgian whimsy in Lincoln Park! Even more awe-inspiring is the fact that one of the home was for Titantic survivor Emily Ryerson and her children.

More than 100 years later, Adler on the Park has been reimagined. There are now two grand residences within, and this year, the homes were transformed into a show house. 40 Chicago interior designers took on the challenge of decorating every inch of this property, and on Sunday, I was delighted to see the finished product.

I met my sweet friend and client, Alyssa, inside the foyer. Alyssa and her husband, Rick, purchased a dreamy Lincoln Park vintage condo with me a few years back. With how much both of us adore an old home, I knew Alyssa and I would be drooling over everything in the show house!

We spent the next hour wandering through, ooh’ing and ahh’ing over hand-painted wallpaper, classic black and white floors, bright and bold color schemes, furniture in every pattern, and more. I could have stayed there all day!

I took tons of iPhone photos while we toured and wanted to share a few here. Thank you to the creatives behind Adler on the Park — your talent is a gift to our city!
