In a sea of narrow Lincoln Park graystones, having a distinctly unique design voice is always front page community news.

The open–mindedness of the inhabitants—a family with three kids and a dog—made the whole process a ton of fun, seeing as how they were just as happy to choose whimsical dog–print wallpaper for a laundry room as they were classy travertine for the kitchen tabletop. "The clients brought us all together, and it was such great group," says Wedemeyer. There were no egos—it was a collaborative effort . . .
