The longer you spend in the South Loop, the more things start looking the same. White tile and modern lines is the norm now, as “modern” becomes standard. So it’s always a treat when we get a project like this. Going to the Prairie Place complex, you might expect either the usual modern stylings or something that hasn’t been touched since it was built in the 90s. This particular bathroom, with its rustic charm and masculine edge, might surprise visitors at first. But the luxurious shower and rough tile details give a handcrafted quality and express an earnest feeling of home.
