Orange March Design Profile: Urban Casita

Remember the historic estate sale we did in Hyde Park last year? Yes we did several, but specifically the estate of Ms. W. Tillman?
She was the first Black Woman anesthesiologist of the State of Illinois! One of her many claims to fame was the presidential correspondence (all beautifully framed) from at least 6 presidents, that hung on her Hyde Park condo walls!

I'll never forget that estate! Neither will Megan Jeyifo! She shopped smartly after confessing this was her first estate sale!
Like a "voi-sion," touched by Mid Century Modern design, for the very first time...

 She came on the last day of this *White Box estate liquidation sale & swooped in and bought the killer, out of crate condition, LANE, Mid Century Modern monster below, for UNDER $100 dollars, & some other lovely vintage items.

I love Megan's design style. I view it as a breathe of fresh color!
It shows shes not afraid to mix it up & while there is not a heavy influence of Mid Century Modern, she has walked the design "tightrope" with style & grace!
