Kara Mann’s Chicago

zr city kara mann

There’s just something about KARA MANN the ultra-chic Chicago interior designer who’s been on every “It” list from InStyle to Vogue to Western Interiors. Since opening her design firm in 2005, Kara has worked with a diverse international client list who appreciate Kara’s knack for combining fashion and art with edgy design to create rooms that stand the test of time.

A longtime fan of Kara’s effortless style, I asked Kara to share what she loves most about her hometown of Chicago.

Chicago is such a vibrant city in so many ways – there’s inspiration and an experience to be had around every corner starting with…

A walk through Millennium Park on Michigan Avenue.

A viewing of the latest exhibits in the Modern Wing at The Art Institute and the Museum of Contemporary Art.

A walk along the 18-mile Lakefront Trail is a great way to see the city.

And of course a trip to Wrigley Field for a Cubs game.

Avec continues to be an all-time favorite.

The Publican has been a truly innovative restaurant for almost a decade.

The Pump Room in the Public Hotel is also a good bet.

And I love the Café at Ikram for a healthy, fresh lunch.

Ian Schrager’s PUBLIC is a beautiful space in a convenient location with a great crowd and great vibe.

The Park Hyatt has beautiful views and excellent service.

And one can never argue with The Peninsula!

Ikram (of course) the ultra-chic fashion boutique for the best of the best in fashion.

And the Chicago icon Blake for another incredible collection of women’s fashion.
