The classic Chicago greystone that Marco Trusewych lives in has been in the family for over 55 years, with Marco part of the third generation to call the two-flat home. The conversation about Logan Square often revolves around the increasing gentrification of the neighborhood, but there are still families who've been around for decades and don't plan on leaving anytime soon. As an intern architect and property manager, Marco has a passion for good design and has used his apartment to showcase his creativity. The apartment has a vintage Chicago vibe, but with some contemporary lighting fixtures and bright colors added into the mix. Personal DIY touches include an "On the Air" sign that turns on when someone is in the bathroom and an otherwise ordinary entryway that has been transformed into a focal point for the entire home with its suspended salvaged wood blocks.
