City Living and Outdoor Spaces

Let’s Dish…

An urban oasis. A small hideout nestled in the rooftops.

From the ground these small treasures of “greenspace” can’t be seen, but they often become the epicenter of entertaining and enjoyment during the summer for city dwellers.

Gathering places for parties and barbeques or quiet get-aways to catch some rays, a well designed rooftop in the city has become a necessity.

Well placed wispy greenery and cleverly designed screens frame the perfect view at sunset. Accent lighting and comfortable lounge seating create the ambiance. Add speakers for music, an outdoor kitchen, and a hidden TV…voila…the perfect tree house in the sky!

Island Retreat

Let’s Dish…

After a long mid-west winter, forget spring fever, summer is on everyone’s mind!
Lazy, hazy days on Lake Michigan are great, but nothing outshines a tropical paradise.

Mia Rao Design provided a tropical oasis in this master bath, of a Chicago restaurateur.

Nothing like slipping into a soak, surrounded by deep sea hues and rich teak wood at the end of a stressful day…

Bon Voyage!
