Design Detour: Elizabeth Krueger

 

Specializing in luxury residential interiors, Elizabeth Krueger has honed an aesthetic that’s both streamlined and striking...in other words, so Chicago. Drawing from a texture-driven arsenal—natural stone surfaces, bronze and brass accents, sheer panels at the window and cozy rugs underfoot—Krueger’s firm creates rooms that are nice to look at and even nicer to live in. “I like to take the clean, warm and architectural elements and add a little funk with a found piece or unexpected art installation,” the designer says.

RSVP

“I'm a sucker for Chicago’s classic Ralph Lauren restaurant. I love the mood, and the food is always delicious.  My dream dinner party group would be Jennie Bishop, Andrea Goldman, James Dolenc and Tom Riker, Michael Abraham, Dave Knecht and John Cialone. All of these people are insanely talented and down to earth, and I have a blast whenever we’re together.”

BRIGHT IDEA

“Most designers consider overhead lighting and table or floor lamps, but art lights like the Langham Medium Picture Light by Ralph Lauren go a long way toward adding an extra glow and elevating any space.”

HOT TIP

“We just did a fabulous commission with the Chicago-based artist Colt Seager. The scale and dimension of this piece is so impactful even though the tones are muted, and it really lit up the space.”

STOP IN

“I love walking through Redefined Decor and seeing all the treasures.  It’s fun to do a few laps before I get serious about what I'm looking for.  On my last visit, I left with a few pieces of art, some fabulous glass and jade boxes, a magnifying glass and a brass tray—all for me.”
