Location: Traverse City, Michigan
Two years ago, I moved from Los Angeles to a small resort town in Northern, Michigan (where I grew up). I was fortunate to buy a charming 1942 cottage with vintage charm, and updated features, complete with hardwood floors and plaster walls.
I moved in, painted every room, and made other cosmetic changes. I'm most proud of my small-budget kitchen renovation turning a grey, dreary kitchen into a sunny bright space (who knew that you could paint laminate cupboard doors!) with very little money.
My personal style definitely leans toward vintage with a laid back, California vibe - my friends call it "Granny Chic". I've gathered furnishings from flea markets, antique shops, eBay, IKEA and other big box stores.
I work from home, and love waking up every day to a space that inspires me and is a cozy place to call home.
