Text by Project Interiors: The Contemporaine Building in River North is desirable for most urbanites, yet our client is hardly there. Hitting the slopes, biking, climbing Kilimanjaro, gorilla trekking, hiking the inca trail— he is not a brunch and Target run kind of Weekender.

Aimee Wertepny says: “Working with such a long, narrow space presented some challenges—we seamed rugs together to make one large area rug to cover the long expanse. Also, the lighting was a challenge. The raw concrete ceilings didn’t offer any overhead light, but a custom designed steel contraption mounted to the ceiling makes this hottie glow when the sun goes down”. The space had idealism but no identity. A glass palace with a killer floating fireplace— the rumble of masculinity (and occasional monkey-ing around) fell for our master plan: blending exuberant, indigenous patterns and vestiges of his globe trekking.

The African pillows and Peruvian fabrics Aimee scored abroad suit his humanitarian-with-a-passport lifestyle. The headboard in the master is made from reclaimed factory doors, the perfect back-story for an international man of mystery.
