HGTV Urban Oasis: Luxury in the City

Vern Yip, award-winning architectural and interior designer, hosts the HGTV Urban Oasis program where one lucky contestant will enjoy the luxury of a one-bedroom and one and a half bath apartment in the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago. It overlooks the Chicago River and the Magnificent Mile and is also within walking distance of the Gold Coast and River North neighborhoods.

This high rise apartment provides the perfect accompaniment for the fabulous Chicago lifestyle that awaits the lucky HGTV viewer. It is located in the heart of the legendary city, including world class restaurants, top notch shops, historic sites and some of the nation's best shopping.

Lay of the Land

The HGTV Urban Oasis includes several rooms. First is the foyer, a warm and inviting entrance which provides a breathtaking view of the Chicago skyline and highlights a vibrant color palette inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's nature themes.

Next you will step into the kitchen. It is just as cozy as the foyer, complete with Arts and Crafts maple cabinets designed for optimal storage space. In addition, the luxurious apartment is furnished with some of the best Kohler and Cuisinart appliances.

The living room is a modern design with vintage appeal. Included are two Barcelona chairs upholstered in green leather, which are perfect for casually chatting with visitors. The living room seats up to 10 people with its array of vintage furnishings purchased at local Chicago design boutique shops. In addition, you will notice another nod to Frank Lloyd Wright, as the living room boasts a massive wall sconce that references his Tree of Life. It is spacious, yet intimate enough for entertaining guests. This living room is one of the greatest areas where you relax, dine or entertain. Or all three at once!

The master bedroom and its four-poster bed upholstered in cotton chenille is the perfect resting place. Complete with decorative wall art hand painted by artist Michael Boudreault, this beautiful, chic bedroom is ideal for all seasons, as it also includes full size windows from which you can observe and admire the captivating city of Chicago. Following the theme of the rest of the apartment, the bedroom includes vintage furnishings such as walnut Baker dressers and even a sewing table nightstand. There are plenty of closets with storage space, not to mention enough living area to be comfortable at all times. Like the rest of the pad, this room does not so much scream excitement as it whispers elegance, charm and personality.

Next on the tour is the master bathroom. The spa-styled bath is complete with tiled walls, a large overflowing tub and a glass-enclosed shower; all surrounded by warm shades to help battle the Chicago winter blues. The floors are stone tile and the walls are designed with glass mosaic tile and linear stone to always make you feel at home.

Luxury All the Way

Lastly, all the amenities of the Trump International Hotel and Tower are available to the lucky sweepstakes winner, making this urban oasis giveaway one of HGTV's most beautiful and luxurious projects.

The urban oasis differs from HGTV's annual dream home in that it is located inside the city as opposed to in a rural area.
