Dennis and Chris stayed within budget and they exceeded our expectations relative to design elements and quality. The construction crew was always polite, on time, clean and communicative.

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 – 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.
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.
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.
Dennis helped us with our first project after we bought our new home. He helped us with color that flowed beautifully throughout our home. He also created beautiful murals in our children’s bedrooms that they loved. 20 years later, those children grew up and our home needed an update. There is only one person we could call. Dennis did again! Not only was our update stunning but the process was painless. Dennis helped me pick out color, window treatments, tile and more. Thank you Dennis and everyone at DF Design for all of your hard work at making our home beautiful! Looking forward to phase II!
Dennis and DF Design were great to work with from start to finish! We initially called DF Design to help with choosing an exterior siding color for an addition that would match the existing roof and brick, but Dennis was so great and helpful that we also used him to help with all interior paint colors and redesign our interior first floor. Dennis made sure he always provided options within our budget and we could not be happier with the finished product! Thank you Dennis and DF Design.
We are doing a small update on our kitchen and flooring. DF Design, Inc provided a consultation, we received SO MUCH valuable information! Not only in the areas of update but our house overall. From paint to lighting sizing and design recommendations to where the best place is to spend in our home. We will be doing a basement update in the future and will be sure to call back for their valuable assistance. THANK YOU! A must for anyone trying to put the pieces together or buying a new home
One of the most rewarding experiences our family has had. We absolutely love our “new” home and finally enjoying its potential. Thanks to DF Design, Inc we couldn’t be more pleased with the results.
