Home Tour: A Historic Chicago House With an Artistic Side

On Chicago’s desirable North Shore, a run-down but historic home just needed the right buyers to bring it back to its former 19th-century glory. Entry Jodi Morton of 2to5design and her husband, David, owner of DMK Restaurants, which includes such Windy City hot spots as Fish Bar, Ada Street, and DMK Burger Bar.

When the couple purchased the home, it had been vacant for over a year and was totally uninhabitable. Thanks to Jodi’s design sense and the family’s personal collection of art, furniture, and accessories, the property was transformed over the years into a bustling residence for a modern family of five.
