Inside Bill and Giuliana Rancic’s Chicago Home

Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood is home for Bill and Giuliana Rancic. The celebrity power couple known from E! News, The Apprentice and RPM restaurants live in a beautifully restored brownstone with their 5 year-old son, Duke.

The Rancics purchased the home in March 2013 for $2.125 million, with many of its original pre-fire Victorian features in tact. Since then, they have undertaken a series of renovations to modernize and personalize the home, located at 105 E. Bellevue Place. The couple enlisted interior designer, Lonni Paul, to transform the space in a fresh, blue-and-white focused palette.

Bill Rancic grew up in nearby Orland Park, IL and always had sights of moving back to Chicago with Giuliana to raise their family.

“This city has everything to offer, including a community of people with strong Midwestern values,” Bill says of his hometown, and especially their neighborhood, within walking distance of shops, their restaurants, and Lake Michigan. “We knew the family who lived here before, and they put a great vibe in this house that we hope to continue. We’ve always had one foot here, and now we have two. Finally, we’re home.”

Décor, Get the Look

Get the Look: Niklas Hjalmarsson’s Dining Room

Last week, we shared a glimpse inside the home of (former) Blackhawks player, Niklas Hjalmarsson. (You can check out the full post here.) Located in Lakeview, the five-bedroom, six-bathroom mansion is now on the market, asking $3.199 million. The 4,600-square-foot residence features a brick and limestone exterior, with upscale finishes throughout the interior.

We especially loved the home’s dining room, which is anchored by a circular distressed wood table flanked with linen Louis XVI chairs. Other interior finishes include ceiling-to-floor window treatments and a bronzed gothic-style lantern light fixture. If you like this Lakeview dining room as much as we do, here’s how you can re-create the look in your own home!
