Houzz Tour: A Comedian’s Stylish Townhouse Has Everyone Smiling. This vibrant Chicago home was inspired by a movie director’s eclectic sets and a flair for the dramatic

When a stand-up comedian and her husband bought an Italianate townhouse in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, their idea was to retain the structure’s original character while inserting their own personalities. Fans of Wes Anderson movies, in particular The Royal Tenenbaums, the couple enlisted help from designer Summer Thornton to achieve a similarly bold and eclectic look.

“Early on in the design process we talked about that movie as a point of reference, and it just stuck,” Thornton says. “But we wanted to do something a bit more glamorous. We loved the idea of including some quirkiness, eccentricity and hyper-saturated color combinations.” Working on the home was a lot of fun, she adds. “When your clients request a pink foyer, you can tell it’s going to be a good time.”
