Oak Park Showcase House Nursery and Shared Bath
This vintage 1904 home in Oak Park, Illinois was totally redesigned for an ASID Showcase House in cooperation with the Oak Park River Forest Infant Welfare Society. Mary Lou Kalmus converted a dreary bedroom into a bright, fanciful nursery for the homeowner's expectant child. A cherub theme was evident in the pressed glass antique chandelier, the custom laser-cut window insert, and the hand painted ceiling. The "Jack and Jill" bathroom between the nursery and children's room was also transformed using coordinating colors and a touch of whimsy.
