Favorite room in this house: We like all of the rooms, as they each serve a different purpose and are eclectic in design. We also like the open floor plan which is ideal for gatherings.
Favorite thing about Naperville: The downtown area is full of life and activity. We also enjoy being within walking distance of all the fine restaurants and shops as well as the concert venues.
A family tradition: Entertaining our six children and extended family members for celebrations and holidays.
Additional: Richard’s hobby is decorating since he came from a family history of designers and decorating. Richard’s father’s store, Honquest Fine Furniture, closed this past year, so he has been working with Naperville businesses to furnish and decorate the newly finished basement. We like to support local Naperville businesses.
