(Image credit: Carolyn Purnell ) Name: Irina (and Lummi) Location: South Loop; Chicago, Illinois Size: 975 square feet Years lived in: 1 year; owned Coleridge , influenced by an opium-induced dream, wrote of "a stately pleasure-dome" that Kubla Khan established in Xanadu. In this space, verdant gardens mingled with caves of ice, and the sweet scent of incense floated above the sun-dappled hills, inspiring "deep delight." Irina, a philosopher and professor of 19th- and 20th-century literature, may not have been channeling Coleridge intentionally when she decorated her home, but with its calming backdrop, smattering of vivid color and patterns, and soaring views of Lake Michigan, Irina's home seems like a fresh and modern take on that vision in a dream.
