It's one of the only reasons I have cable, and probably one of the main reasons I never get around to blogging :).
There are so many great shows. I am completely in love with Genevieve Gorder. Sabrina Soto's show High/Low Project is super fun to watch (especially when The Man gets all fussy about how cheap the "High" furniture is). Scott McGillivray from Income Property has made me want to be a landlord, and now one of the newer kids on the block has also got me hooked.
Meg Caswell was last years HGTV Design Star winner, and her show, Meg's Great Rooms, is based here in Chicago. It's so much fun to watch, because she's always going to new places around town that I've never heard of.
A while back I saw an episode where she goes to Nadeau.
Nadeau is a furniture store. But instead of mass-produced or "assembly required" pieces they house a variety of furniture pieces found around the world and brought back to the good ol' US of A. Their store in Chicago is right by Architectural Artifacts and we decided to check it out a few weekends ago.
I saw a lot of secretaries that I loved,
and everything is very decently priced.
The Morning Man is pretty determined to make all the furniture we need for our new pad, but now that we're a little more settled I think we'll head back to Nadeau soon.
I'll also keep watching Meg's Great Rooms for more Chicago shopping advise!!!
