More is better for those who subscribe to a maximalist design philosophy, like the owners of this custom-built Lincoln Park home. The intention is curated, rather than cluttered: glass vases topping stacks of books, numerous side tables wedged between furniture, eclectic art layering every inch of wall space.

The five-bedroom, five-and-a-half bathroom home comes with 10-foot ceilings, wide skylights, hand-scraped oak floors, and a private backyard patio. Scandinavian and midcentury modern aesthetic inspire the built-in shelves, light fixtures, and furniture. The home is set up to showcase the owners love of art—the interior is packed with modern art books, a neon light sculpture, giant geometric decals, and abstract paintings.

All the rooms on the first floor—the living area, library, kitchen have a view to the landscaped patio. Up on the second floor are two kids bedrooms, a guest room, a den and then the master suite on the opposite side. The lower level is converted into a gym (much more than just a treadmill) and a home theater.

Located at 2517 North Greenview Avenue, the brick home is listed for $3 million.
