This is a lovely apartment located on the second floor of a vintage courtyard building. It is full of an interior designers personal collection of furniture and goodies, which will nearly guarantee a good response when posting on social media :-)
I have had great luck with very few rules. I prefer shoes off at the front door (if possible) and, since the furniture is really posh, please don't set drippy cups or hot things down on the furniture.
Please feel free to open windows; in particular in the winter it can get roasting hot, so a cracked window for fresh air will be helpful.
There is a remarkably dusty back porch that you are welcome to smoke on, but don't leave your cigarette butts out there.
The rule of thumb is to treat the house like you paid for it all and really enjoy your time here.
Oh, and please don't sleep on my couch. That is a weird personal pet peeve :-)

In a nutshell, I am a fun 30s fellow who lives in Chicago and does high end interior design work.
I have always been interested in showing hospitality to others. Before airbnb this was mostly done by inviting friends and others over to my home for dinner or cocktails....but I find it equally rewarding to be able to host a traveler and know that my home with influence their trip for the better.
As I am getting older I have decided that I really want to travel and see more of the world...but limited finances (coupled with my refusal to sit int he back of planes) as well as a desire to really get to see how people live and just not how tourists are treated makes this a great option for me!
I have quite a few different interests, but I am very into anything design related (architecture, shops, urban life) and am an avid collector of mid century furnishings and love modern art from around 1910 to 1960. I am happy to have one black cat (I like cat's but one is just enough to keep it interesting) and love to entertain friends often. I am also a sucker for British TV, and you will often find BBC America in the background.
I was lucky enough to have the New York Times recently devote two entire pages to me in their home section, making me sound much more interesting in print as compared with in reality and publishing some lovely pictures of my life.
Oh, and my favorite color is that of a wet seal.....greenish gray and shiny!
