🌳 JOHN 🌳 YUNIS 🌳Skrebneski, Chicago, Interior Design by Bruce Gregga, Part 7, Sitting Room off of the Master Bedroom, another view: Here is the other angle of this fantastic room- we are looking virtually in the opposite direction of Part 6. Sadly, we end here, as this is the last photo from the article. Hope that we've enjoyed this – it's one of my favorites. According to the caption: " At the far end of the sitting room, a 1918 painting by Valmier is set on an ormolu-mounted Boulle marquetry commode. On a chair is a 1925 drawing by Picasso. Raymond Duchamp-Villon sculpted the bronze Torso de Jeune Homme, 1910, foreground."

🌳 JOHN 🌳 YUNIS 🌳Skrebneski, Chicago, Interior Design by Bruce Gregga, Part 5, Kitchen: The book-lined kitchen. According to the caption: " 'No design school in the world could teach the practical lessons I learned looking along with those eyes,' says Gregga. A zigzag pattern was painted on the floors in the kitchen, which is lined with bookshelves. The chairs are 18th-century French." Also, notice that the ceilings throughout are lacquered.

🌳 JOHN 🌳 YUNIS 🌳Skrebneski, Chicago, Interior Design by Bruce Gregga, Part 6, Sitting Room off of the Master Bedroom: We have two angles of this fantastic room. According to the caption: " The sitting room off the master bedroom has an 18th-century French coromandel screen. Displayed on the 17th century Italian console is Tête, 1914, by Joseph Csaky; below it is a sculpture by Aijiro Wakita. A sculpture by Alberto Giacometti rests on the table at right." Am unsure of the "French" coromandel screen- I have any of you heard of this? Love everything here. Sorry that the color isn't better. Notice the lacquered ceiling..

🌳 JOHN 🌳 YUNIS 🌳Skrebneski, Chicago, Interior Design by Bruce Gregga, Part 4, Living Room, full view: This photo is a two-page spread in the magazine, so it looks weak here – so we must zoom in! As we can see, the detail area from Part 2 is in the left corner here. And, we can just make out the lacquer commodes from Part 3 on the left side here. The Régence chandelier is wonderful. According to the caption: "French pieces from the 18th century furnish the living room. To the right of the Gobelins tapestry is L'Homme Assis, a 1930 work by Louis Marcoussis; on the low table are white plaster sconces by Alberto and Diego Giacometti; the 1923 painting at right, Composition Serières, is by Albert Gleizes." .

🌳 JOHN 🌳 YUNIS 🌳Skrebneski, Chicago, Interior Design by Bruce Gregga, Part 3, Living Room detail: The detail photo from Part 2 is just out of sight on our right here. Behind what are apparently mirrored pocket doors is a window, perhaps a nod to the Petit Trianon. Make note of the two wonderful lacquer commodes, they will be visible on the left side in our next photo. According to the caption: Works include sculptures by Oscar Schlemmer, far left, and Max Ernst, center. The vertical bronze sculpture is by ManRray." .

🌳 JOHN 🌳 YUNIS 🌳Skrebneski, Chicago, Interior Design by Bruce Gregga, Part 2, Living Room detail: The entrance hall leads to the living room, which is filled with what appears to be mostly 18th century French furniture and wonderful paintings. First, we are going to see two detail photos, before we see the whole space. According to the caption: "Photographer Victor Skrebneski has brought together French antiques and modern Art in his Chicago Coachhouse. A 1932 painting by Vlamier rests on a French console in living room." (I'm puzzled by the console – I've seen more English examples like this that French). The tapestry is, according to the text, Gobelins, "signed by Le Barbier L'Aine", the marble torso is from the second century B. C. , and, what appears to be a plaster medusa head on the Chinese table is actually a sconce, one of a pair, by Alberto and Diego Giacometti.

🌳 JOHN 🌳 YUNIS 🌳Skrebneski, Chicago, Interior Design by Bruce Gregga, Part 1, Entrance Hall: For those who don't know, Victor Skrebneski, aka Skrebneski, is a Chicago-based fashion photographer who worked most famously during the 1960's to the 2000's, when his images were iconic. He photographed everyone and made everyone look incredible. The AD article was written by another icon, Suzy, aka Aileen Mehle, whom he photographed several times. Not sure, but I believe he was responsible for many of the iconic images of the Estee Lauder ad campaigns during this period. According to the article from about 1999-2000: "Skrebneski has lived in his Chicago residence, originally a Victorian-era coach house, for almost 50 years. The mansion in front of it was demolished more than 30 years ago, making space for a courtyard with an allée of trees and boxwood topiaries. Skrebneski and Chicago interior decorator Bruce Gregga gently redesigned the coach house to accommodate a studio on the first floor and living quarters on the second. What Skrebneski wanted was a modern house, even minimalist, with spaces perfectly proportioned. He envisioned it with an artist's eye, as he views everything. The spare look is introduced by a recently added entrance hall with floors, walls and staircase molded entirely out of concrete. This rectangular, almost stark space is relieved, however, by a carved wood 17th century Italian figure, and on the landing just above it are a Jean-Michel Frank five-panel parchment screen and a bronze–doré Diego Giacometti bench.". Unfortunately we don't get to see the screen or the bench and, to me, the floor appears to be travertine. Nonetheless, love this space.
