"Nothing says success to me more than hearing a client say, 'you gave me exactly what I wanted'."
Since 1994, Ilene April has been successfully designing homes throughout Chicago and the North Shore. She is an allied member of ASID and a graduate of the Harrington Institute of Interior Design.
Ilene April follows a philosophy of “good design”, whether it be a greystone in Lincoln Park, a traditional home in Highland Park or a modern highrise on Lake Shore Drive.
She lets both the architecture and the client’s personality shine through in her projects. Rather than starting with a blank canvas, a client’s personal treasure might be the jumping off point. She often works around family heirlooms and keepsakes from travels. She then takes her experience as well as an eye for mixing both traditional and contemporary and turns the space into something both personal and beautiful.
