This year we were lucky to partner with the distinguished Young Professionals Organization Gold organization at the legendary Armour Mansion in Lake Forest. The directive from the client was clear, make it authentic and make it elegant.

My vision from the beginning was to honor the integrity and essence of the property. The mansion formally know as Ried Hall was built in 1908 by Jonathon Ogden Armour for his wife Lolita and is now part of The Lake Forest Academy Campus.
I knew from the beginning that the rooms should be warm and inviting and that they should embrace the holiday season and everything that comes having an event in December.

It starts with research a sketch and a clear vision for the décor.

I hope you enjoy seeing how our process works and how a beautiful room starts with just a humble sketch.

Enjoy, Vince
