The Publishing House — Chicago, USA

The Publishing House — Chicago, USA

With its reputation for bustling bars and talked-about restaurants, Chicago’s West Loop is just as famed for its nocturnal energy as its industrial architecture. Tucked amongst the fray is an 11-room bed and breakfast called The Publishing House, the neighbourhood’s first inn of its kind. 

Owned by a husband and wife team, Shawn Uldridge and Kimberly Lowery, the B&B is housed within the historic Free Methodist Publishing House, which was originally built in 1909 and served as a casket factory/showroom and holography museum in its later iterations. In its current guise, the intimate property has been completely renovated by Nushu Architecture and Vero Design and Build, and filled with vintage furniture and flea market finds by local boutique firm Siren Betty Design. 

In addition to high ceilings, exposed brickwork, refinished wood floors and mid-century touches, the property also features a communal area installed with a double-sided fireplace, a fully-stocked lounge and a grand piano. Upstairs, each room has been individually furnished and named after notable Chicago authors or a place or character from books that take place in the Windy City. 

What’s more, guests will be able to enjoy home-cooked breakfasts by the proprietors each morning. Stylish, yet warm, this modern hideaway feels just like home.
