Itch to Switch

My first blog post of 2019! We’re already 3/4 way into the first month and I’m already behind on my blogging…good thing I didn’t make that a resolution.   The  New Year always feels like a good time to start fresh and try something new…

Holiday Decor on a Budget

December is officially here.  I know that many of you have already started (and finished) decorating for the Holidays but there are some that abide by a rule of waiting until after December 1st.  Or maybe you had plans to start earlier and then…

Cottage Recap: Kitchen

Last but not least on our Cottage Recap “tour” is the kitchen.  We started the recaps with the exterior, next was the living/dining , then the bed/bath and now here we are.  Every time I look back through all of these photos I am still in awe of the transformation…

Cottage Recap: Bed & Bath

It’s been about 6 weeks since our last visit to the cottage and I’m already missing it something fierce.  Maybe its because I don’t know exactly when our next trip up there will be.  I’m sure it will be sometime later this fall or…

Cottage Recap: Living/Dining

For the first Cottage Recap we looked back at the exterior transformation. Now it’s time to move inside to the living/dining area.  One open space that will get the most use by far…including as a guest room.  I’m happy to report, according to our FIRST…

Cottage Recap: Exterior

If you’ve been following along (which we appreciate!) with the progress of our Cottage remodel/renovation, you may have already seen some of the reveals along the way.  However, I wanted to take some time over the next few posts to reflect back on the…

My Story

I can’t pinpoint the exact moment my interest in interior design & decor sparked; but I do know it started at an early age… In elementary school I remember walking through a house for sale with my parents and our realtor.  To this day…

Cottage: Bath Reveal

Between being on vacation and trying to get caught up after being on vacation…I have slacked on my updates, but I am here today to remedy that. We were able to use our shower for the first time!  To refresh your memory, we had…

Cottage: Well…shoot (UPDATE)

This photo may not be pretty but it is very exciting for us… If you remember from this post we received the unfortunate news in March that the well for our cottage needed to be replaced.   After the permits were squared away we were added to the…

Cottage: Kitchen Reveal

Why does it always feel like long/holiday weekends seem to go too fast and the “short” work week after seems to drag on? Surely I’m not the only one who feels this way… Anyway, over Memorial Day weekend we were back in Michigan enjoying…

Front Door Refresh

Our front door was boring…a lot of brown & beige blandness.  I’m not exactly sure how or when I let this happen but this week I decided to remedy the situation. I did not want to spend a lot of time or money, and…

Cottage: Shelves

Earlier this week I mentioned I’d be back with another Cottage update so here it is! From the day we decided to purchase the cottage, I started collecting things to decorate.  I’m sure this doesn’t come as a surprise. Early on I had my heart…
