A 1980's time capsule COTTAGE in BRIDGEPORT Chicago.

1885 Workers cottage meticulously styled in an over-the-top 1980’s surrealist dreamscape complete with neon lights and a hand-shaped electric blue couch.

This maximalist cottage loosely inspired by Peewee’s Playhouse is a trip!  Located in the Bridgeport neighborhood of Chicago, it features large windows with northern exposure for soft, but bright indirect light.

    Inspired by artist Duggie Fields, who once wrote that maximalism is “minimalism with a plus, plus, plus.” That sentiment is on full display in this 1885 Bridgeport worker’s cottage turned 1980s playland, all in homage to a decade that’s seen a resurgence as of late.

The 1,400-square-foot worker’s cottage had been in one family for 85 years, elevated on wooden pillars after the streets were raised in the 1910s.
