Amy, the owner of Victory Market Vintage & Handmade, has lived in her Andersonville home in Chicago for 4 years.
Her 700 square foot apartment sits above a shop overlooking other shops and restaurants.
I’m not quite sure how you’d describe her style. Colorful. Whimsical. A bit bohemian.
Don’t you love that old phone on the wall and the plants in the vintage box? Do you know I have that very box on my vintage ladder?
Color abounds. Bright cheerful colors. Lots of mixed patterns. Amy does not discriminate against patterns!
The light coming in helps ground all her colors, brushing strokes of sun across her treasures.
The apartment floors are a mix of hardwood and tile. The kitchen has the vintage classic checkerboard black and white tile.
If you love crafts and sewing, you’ll love how she’s organized her supplies. Where they’re all right at hand to use when the mood strikes her.
Her bedroom is a touch more demure and muted, but still has lots of mixed patterns going on.
I would imagine that her little apartment cheers her every time she walks in the door. It is certainly unique!
What do you love best about Amy’s apartment in Chicago? Would you consider living above a shop in a bustling neighborhood?
