Inside The Everygirl Cofounder's Inspiring Apartment

The Everygirl takes us inside Alaina Kaczmarski's awe-inspiring Chicago home!

A few years ago, a painted black gallery wall appeared on my computer screen, and I became a forever fan of the lady behind the idea: Alaina Kaczmarski (also known as the cofounder and editor of The Everygirl) who I'm happy to now call a friend. Upon further investigation, I realized that most of her then apartment was decorated with Craigslist finds and made-over thrift store treasures, reassuring me that my own shabby rental could one day be presentable, even on a shoestring budget.

Since then, Alaina's made her way around the city of Chicago, venturing from her charming Southport walk-up to her sprawling Uptown abode, and most recently landing in this quaint, cozy Lincoln Park apartment that is filled to the brim with inspiration stemming from her signature style: gray, white, pink, mint, gallery walls galore, and plenty of styling.

With a knack for transforming rentals that most of us would barely give a second glance on Craigslist, Alaina takes us through the process of decorating the first home she's ever lived in on her own, gives us an inside peek into life as an editor of a website, and lets us in on what is next for her, her career, and her personal blog, Live Creating Yourself.

*NOTE: Alaina has since moved since this interview took place, so her questions are answered in past tense.
