at home with ‘peppermint bliss’

Browsing through the current edition of Rue magazine, one interior in particular made me stop and take notice. The house in question belongs to Bailey McCarthy – author of delicious design blog Peppermint Bliss – and her husband, Peter. After they bought this late 19th century Victorian home in a leafy suburb of Chicago, the couple went about lovingly restoring it from a bad renovation job that screamed bachelor, to its former glory.
I really admire how the couple’s eclectic tastes have been poured into this home – this is definitely no cookie-cutter residence. From the rich jewel tones of the buttoned sofas, to the quirky wallpaper prints and touches of luxury English estate, I see something new every time I revisit it. I feel like I know the pair’s personalities just by seeing inside their home – and isn’t that what putting your stamp on a property is all about? And seriously, those dogs in the bathroom… possibly the cutest thing you’ve ever seen??
