Magnifique French Chateau – Hinsdale, IL

Designer: Gail Drury, CMKBD

Co-Designer: Janie Petkus, Janie Petkus Interiors

Inspired by a French chateau, this new home in Hinsdale, Ill., fuses earthy iron and copper elements with unique imported pieces and antiques. Its centerpiece is an imported copper and limestone hood by Francois & Co., accentuated by decorative backsplash tile.

Unique touches include antique mirrors, which front a tall cabinet and mimic an armoire. Vintage light fixtures hang above the island.

Using design inspiration from furniture in the home, the master bath is a calming space done in cabinetry of whitewashed tones and Tunas Greenlight granite countertops.

This home was featured on the cover of Hinsdale Living magazine and in an accompanying feature article, “Kitchen, Bath and Beyond,” in October 2014.
