A Fort Sheridan sitting room embraces the ornate.
Designer Jamie Schachtel worked on every detail of this Fort Sheridan ranch, from the floorboards to the doorknobs, resulting in flawless continuity throughout. “When I can get my hands on a house from the ground up, then everything relates to everything,” says Schachtel. Still, the sitting room stands out, with its dramatically contrasting textures and fabrics and ornate features.
