Summer Thornton Design

Chicago, IL

With projects nationwide, Summer Thornton is known for her bold and colorful interiors that have been featured in House Beautiful, Traditional Home, Luxe Interiors + Design, Domino, Lonny, Modern Luxury Interiors and more. In addition to being a Traditional Home "New Trad", Summer was named Chicago's Best Transitional Designer by Modern Luxury and a "Rising Star" by the Fashion Group International. She firmly believes that each client's home should be a reflection of their personal style - their soul, passions, and quirks should be found on the walls and in the furniture throughout the home - so no two projects should ever look alike.
