A Chicago Greystone “Before & After” Transformation

Here’s a transformation you have to see to believe. Local Chicagoan and co-founder of The Everygirl, Alaina Kaczmarski took a vintage Chicago greystone from drab to fab in less than a year.

Kaczmarski found the 1,600 square foot rental on Craiglist last winter and has since transformed the space to fit her “modern meets traditional” style, alongside her husband, Dan, and their two dogs, Tucker and Fiona.

Take a look inside and you’ll find tons of architectural charm, like oversized windows and multiple fireplaces, paired with Alaina’s knack for styling “old and new.”
