We’ve all done it – walked into an open house, not because we’re in the market for a new pad, but just to score decorating ideas.
It’s fun, except for that twinge of guilt when the agent hands you his card.
Get guilt-free ideas at this year’s Dream Home at the Merchandise Mart. The Dream Home is a partnership between Elle Décor magazine and the Merchandise Mart to create a fantasy home. The project invites top Chicago designers to each create a room, and the finished product is a nine-room manse of couture interiors.
Go idea shopping until December 20th, when the Dream Home closes. Then, it's back to open houses.
