Holiday season is officially upon us! This calls for more entertaining and spending time with friends and loved ones. We heard from two of Chicago’s top interior designers about what’s trending for this season and how to completely transform and cozy up your home.
Chicago-based interior designer Dan Rak has become known for his unique style and ability to create individually tailored interiors that are both sophisticated and livable. Dan’s work has won multiple awards and has been published in a variety of regional and national publications.
The team is currently working on projects throughout the Chicagoland area as well as select projects nationwide. Dan’s first line of furniture, a collaboration with California-based ModShop, is available now. Dan was recently named one of the top 25 interior designers in Illinois by Amara and has been featured in Traditional Home, Luxe, CS, and Splash magazines.
“I’m into jewel tones for this holiday season. I personally love when a room’s holiday vibe pulls inspiration from it’s permanent decor. The result can be both festive and cohesive. We recently installed peacock-inspired holiday decor for a client, mixing warm bronze and cool blue tones to achieve both a classic, and current, look.”

“A modern take on the Holidays! We love the idea of taking a break from the reds and greens, and exploring a non-traditional color palette for seasonal décor. Crisp whites, and deep blues give the space that snowy winter feel, while incorporating a touch of sparkle with gold accents is what transforms it into a winter wonderland.”
