About the Property
2 Bedroom/1 Bath Apartment In Logan Square on the Blue Line.
A Boho Chic getaway in one of Chicago's original Bohemian neighborhoods. This apartment was designed by up-and-coming interior designer Tara Rhode. This one is in a Boho chic style with a combination of Moroccan and East Indian accents. One bedroom is a double bed and the other is a twin and a trundle. All of the beds have new memory foam mattresses. The kitchen has a stove and refrigerator, but no dishwasher. The kitchen table seats 6.
It's an old building so there's not central AC, but there are window units in each of the bedrooms.
There's a little deck on the back and a grill on the top floor which can be used on the deck up there. There's a nice view of the city skyline.
There is a laundry room on the top floor of the building with two washers and dryers that each take quarters. There's space to park one car in an enclosed garage with a remote-control opener. Parking is free.
Public transit is very convenient. The #56 bus stops almost in front of the building and goes downtown. A 7 minute walk away is the Logan Square Blue Line station that goes downtown or to O'Hare. There is a Divvy bike station at the Logan Square Blue Line stop as well as an Enterprise car share lot at 2808 N. Christina about a 5 minute walk away.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

About the owner: I'm an artist who has lived in Chicago since 2002. My studio is in the storefront of this building that I bought in the old Polish neighborhood on Milwaukee Avenue. I've turned one of my apartments as an experiment in August 2013. I like to stay in BnB's whenever I travel around the country for my public art commissions and painting exhibits.
Why the Owner Chose Avondale, Chicago, IL, USA:
This part of Milwaukee Avenue is an old Main Street and I think it reminded me of Pittsburgh, where I was born and where my earliest visual memories were imprinted. I've also always dreamt of having my studio in an old storefront. Now I'm living the dream -- and it's as good as I imagined it would be! I started by renting out the building to young artists and musicians because I wanted to create a community in the building. That part has worked beautifully, but I'm the sort of person who always wants to see around the next bend, to constantly be improving. I wanted to see what it would be like to furnish an apartment completely in thrift and consignment finds, so I asked an interior designer friend of mine, Tara Rhode, who needed a starter project for her portfolio, if she'd be willing to take on the challenge. She was and we worked beautifully together, scouring the Midwest, texting each other images of our finds, enlisting our mothers' help in the process. We found many more things than we could fit into the apartment, but thanks to Tara's expert editing, the unit pulled together so well that I decided to do another one which I'm calling 'Bohemian Hideaway'
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
When I moved to Chicago in 2002 from Seattle, I did so because I wanted to live in a larger city that had seemingly limitless opportunities. Chicago definitely did not disappoint! I will never begin to even make a dent in all of the cultural, culinary, and social delights this city has to offer. Early on when I moved here I was talking to someone who had also moved to Chicago simply because they were drawn by the gravitational pull of this big, friendly city and I asked him what it is it about this town that is so attractive? He said, 'Because it's like what a big city should be.' And that's it. It's gritty, it's complex, it's dangerous, it's historic, it's unbelievably diverse, and full of endless opportunities. I can understand why Alex Kotlowitz named his wonderful book on Chicago, 'Never A City So Real'. That sums it up perfectly.
