Black Dove Lifestyle is Heidi Taylor and Jodi Immel. We are two Chicago-based interior decorators, with small-town Midwestern roots, and a shared passion for creating beautiful, inviting spaces that spark celebration and create the perfect backdrop for memories with family and friends.
Our knack for blending elegant design with practicality, combined with our backgrounds in fashion and art, inspire us to create spaces that are the perfect balance of style and sophistication. From transforming family residences to bringing a bachelor (or bachelorette) pad to life, we are obsessed with making every client’s home the one they saw in their dreams.
You ladies are way more than interior design geniuses. You are total visionaries. You transformed my house into an intimate, gorgeous, bohemian sanctuary. And you totally nailed my vibe. Thank you for shining your visual brilliance throughout my home. I AM TOTALLY OBSESSED. :)
I had the best experience working with the BDL girls, Heidi and Jodi! Not only are they incredibly creative, but they are so easy to work with. Through my countless, lengthy emails, these ladies were able to incorporate all of my wishes, all while staying within a budget - a budget that perhaps I did not always consider when emailing them. :) They make it look easy, but I think these ladies literally know the inventory at every store in Chicago. They were able to whip up a style consisting of practical purchases mixed in with a few designer touches to make my town home look chic and unique. Everyone who comes to my home always has so many compliments! Modern, chic, boho, elegant, you name it they are able to produce it. You can't go wrong working with these ladies! xoxo
BDL made my dreams come true. They transformed my house into a home. What started out as a small project turned into a complete redo - at an incredibly fair price.
When they suggested I have my Cherry cabinets painted white I had an OMG moment---are you crazy!?!? When they suggested I should stain my yellow Oak floors dark---YIKES! When they suggested I take my beige walls and paint them light, get the paddles out---my heart stopped. It's too much. I turned into a redecorating crack addict during the process. They would suggest something and I was in. I trusted the vision they had.
The day I came home after they installed everything I burst into tears. The entire neighborhood came over and was in aww of it. Everyone said it looked like a home you would see in a magazine. It is now the most comfortable, gorgeous home I've ever owned.
Three of my neighbors have since used BDL. All of us have different style and every single one of us got what we wanted. All I said was my favorite store is Classic Remix and they knew what I wanted. They made all my dreams come true in so many ways. Not only are they extremely talented but they work with the greatest vendors. Everything was done to perfection.
For the 1st time in my life I have a place I truly call "home". I love love love my new home.
