Libertyville, Illinois

The village of Libertyville is located in Lake County, Illinois, about 39 miles north of Chicago.  The town was established in 1829, and it’s first recorded resident was George Vardin.  According to history, Vardin took residence in a log cabin that would later be the town’s first Post Office.  In 1895, a fire destroyed the majority of Libertyville’s downtown.  To avoid future disasters, the village board mandated that brick be used for reconstruction.  As a result, the architecture of the downtown is unified by both period and building material.  In 1997, Libertyville was honored with a Great American Main Street Award by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. In addition, in 2012, Libertyville received the Lt. Governor’s Award for Excellence for it’s drive to promote local merchants.

Cook Mansion Libertyville IL

Cook Mansion – 413 North Milwaukee Avenue, Libertyville, IL 60048

The most prominent building in Libertyville is the Cook Mansion.  It was built in 1879 by Ansel Brainerd Cook who was a teacher and stonemason. In addition, Cook was also known as an influential Chicago builder and politician.  Cook used the two-story Victorian mansion as his summer home and horse farm. In his will, he donated the home for use as the Public Library. The building received a major Neoclassical renovation that converted it into a library and opened to the public in 1921.  Today, the home functions as a museum operated by the Libertyville-Mundelein Historical Society.

Mundelein, Illinois

Adjacent to Libertyville, is the town of Mundelein, Illinois.  Incorporated in 1909, the village grew from a small farming community into a vibrant township.  Peter Shaddle was the first known settler.  The log cabin he built was located on the grounds of what is now St. Mary of the Lake Seminary.  As the town expanded, the Diamond Lake area was established.  Mundelein changed names several times throughout history.  The original name was “Merchants Grove”.  Later it was changed to “Holcomb, after John Holcomb, an important local business man. In 1909, the town incorporated under the name of “Rockefeller”, after railroad magnate John Rockefeller.  Shortly after, it became “Area”, after an acronym used by a successful school. Finally, in 1924, the Village changed it’s name to “Mundelein” in honor of Cardinal George Mundelein of Chicago, who purchased the property and authorized construction of St. Mary’s of the Lake Seminary.

Old Village Hall – 440 E. Hawley Street, Mundelein, IL  60060

As a “thank you” gift for naming the Village after him, Cardinal Mundelein gave the community a 1925 Stoughton fire truck. Needing a location to store the vehicle, the Village raised $36,000 to build a permanent Old Village Hall.  Once completed, the building housed the Mayor’s office, Village offices, Police Department, Fire Department and “Old #1”, the fire truck. An open area on the second floor served as a banquet hall and community room for residents. The building was used by the Village until 2014.

Real Testimonials

The more we “live” with our new interior decorating and furniture, the more in love we fall with them. When family and friends visit, their first response is always one of a gasp: “I can’t believe how fantastic your home looks!” We have never before felt such pride in welcoming visitors. Dennis Frankowski is not only a interior design genius, but a gentleman and man of integrity as well. We highly recommend DF Design Inc.

We used Dennis to start updating our home and we are thrilled with the results! We’ve started with our kitchen and we absolutely love how everything turned out! Everyone who has seen it since has been amazed at the design details. Dennis and his team were great to work with and they finished on time. We were also able to continue using our kitchen appliances through the majority of the project which was very helpful since we have two small kids. We’re really happy we found Dennis and his team and can’t wait to continue using them to update the rest of our home!

Thanks to Dennis and his wonderful staff. His eye for color has brought us back to use his expertise years after the first repainting of our house. After following his ideas, I am thrilled to have a home that flows smoothly from one room to another. Dennis listened and tweaked his suggestions to create an atmosphere that is what we were looking for. I must admit, his first suggestions are typically right on target, just have to have faith and trust in his expertise.

I hired DF Design for a virtual consult on flooring and painting colors. They were extremely professional and helpful during my consult and helped me stay on task and not get distracted in 100 different directions. This made the focus very narrowed and we were able to make color decisions together effectively so that I could start the process of my remodel. Will definitely use them again.

My wife and I purchased our retirement home in 2017. We wanted to customize it to our style. The problem we encountered was selecting an exterior paint color to compliment the multi-color reddish brick which was on the lower half of the house. Dennis was selected to assist us with the extensive painting project. He was most attentive to our concerns regarding the house color and complimentary trim and accent colors. After surveying the house Dennis suggested a couple paint color combinations. His insightful approach made it easy to make a final decision. We have received numerous compliments from neighbors, family and friends. We are exceptionally pleased with the final results and would highly recommend Dennis for any paint color selection assistance you may need.
