Long Residence by Pernille Lind Studio


Born in Denmark, Pernille Lind grew up travelling the world. Now based in London, where she has lived since 2013, the half-Thai interior designer’s global upbringing has shaped her creative approach, which is influenced by Scandinavian design aesthetics mixed with Asian decorative and material inspirations. Specialising in hospitality and high-end residential projects worldwide, Pernille Lind Studio was commissioned to work on the refurbishment and interior design of a 5-bedroom Colonial revival house located in the historical Frank Lloyd Wright district, of Oak Park, Chicago Illinois. Built in 1920 by architects Tallmadge & Watson, the house was in sound condition, but lacked what was needed for contemporary family living. By opening up key spaces, a central area for the family was created with an elegant dining area and stunning new kitchen. Designed to suit the avid chef, with all modern appliances, central working island and pantry store, it features striking marble benchtops paired with warm beige cabinetry. The calming colour palette and materiality continues throughout the home.

Extending the home's original characteristics with further European-inspired elements, the final styling and personal touches were sourced from Chicago's plentiful design stores and antique shops, with some wonderful additional pieces found in the greater Michigan area. Working with local manufacturers and craftsmen the studio designed all the bespoke joinery for wardrobes and bathrooms. Knocking down walls between a former dressing room and smaller bathroom, a luxurious new ensuite was created for the master bedroom.

Reflecting the owners’ travels and personal style, the home is a now a beautiful, calm haven.
