TOP FIVE WITH THIS TOP LADY
As everyone gets to know their homes a little better right now, we could think of only one lovely lady to spotlight this month - the marvelous maven of interior design, Tracy Kurczaba of Tracy Kurc Interiors & Styling.
And if this shot of her looks familiar, it’s because we were lucky enough to shoot our Spring 2020 Catalog in her gorgeous Chicago home.
What's your favorite room you've ever designed?
This is hard if not impossible… they are all my babies! Since I've been spending all my time at home lately, I am evermore appreciative of the details found in my most often used spaces. This is my master bath. The floor design was inspired from the forecourt at Versailles. I remember doing the CAD drawing for the tile layout (it’s all 1"x1" marble). I work with awesome professionals so while at first it seemed complicated, we were able to come up with a way to cut the sheets to maximize install efficiency.
Another reason I chose this room is because I feel self-care is so important, especially now. I am home with 2 children, knee-deep in eLearning, and trying to still contribute positively to our community. That being said, the best way to be able to help others is to ensure that I stay the best version of me. Sometimes that’s as simple as taking a few minutes to do a facial treatment or meditate.
What does your typical work outfit consist of?
Jeans, a pretty blouse, statement jewelry and either heels or some chunky booties if I'm at a construction site.
You picked the Jennifer High-rise Vintage Blue, why are those your favorite Beija-Flor Jeans?
They fit perfectly and hold their shape after a busy day. The wash is absolutely classic. I was at a client meeting just before the shoot so this is absolutely real life!
