GET Debra's Little Black Book

I’m often asked, “Who’s the best handyman in the area? Where can I find a great home cook for my party?” After 30 years in the business, I’ve gathered quite a list! That’s why I created my Little Black Book–a comprehensive, 80 page guide of my most trusted vendors, service providers, and partners in Chicago.

You can get your very own electronic copy, or a beautifully bound and printed version as a gift from me to you. Just pop in your information below, and we’ll send one your way.

Redefining Luxury:
The Renaissance of The Residences of Water Tower

03_180EPearson_Unit5603_177003_Kitchen_Custom_Resized_433510583_1200x900zip_1200x900Perhaps one of Chicago’s first ‘condo-hotel’ concepts, and the Grande Dame of them all.

I’ve had a love affair with the Water Tower going back to early 1980, not too long after the building was constructed. The history of the original Water Tower, and the elegance of the sleek, white marble skyscraper that bears the same name, represent Chicago at its core.

But for a family that includes 3 beloved doggies (yes, there is a pet count limit in most high-rise buildings in Chicago) I could happily live in a building where services for anything and everything would be at my fingertips. Fries at midnight – delivered in minutes. Having the
squeaky door hinges oiled – the fabulous building superintendent is there to fix. Dash to to the state-of-the-art fitness studio first thing in the morning – and never leave the building. Pamper myself with an in-home massage – check. Shopping, dining, the lakefront, tennis, just steps from my home – double check. Cocktails on the terrace – thank you Deca.

180-Pearson_5505_kitchenThe splendor of possibilities this building offers for a luxurious, urban lifestyle, along with gracious floor plans and forever views, was my inspiration to present this project to the brilliant design talent at Centaur Interiors.

I worked with Michael Miller and his team at Centaur Interiors from acquisition to inspiration to gut renovation to completion of these gorgeous homes. Three a wrap, two underway, and we hope more to come!
