An Amsterdam native, Karen Herold is the the interior designer behind such Chicago hotspots as Girl & the Goat. Formerly of 555 International, Herold recently branched off to launch her own design firm, Studio K. With a degree in fashion design and a tendency to wear accessories that get her stopped on the street, Herold's the kind of person we just had to ask: where do you shop?

Not only did the designer tell us her favorite spots for picking up home goods, fresh veggies, and artwork—she filled us in where she takes clients for coffee, gets her curly tresses styled, and unwinds with sun salutations on Sunday night. Here's Herold's guide to Chicago's top spots.
