In Monday’s post, we visited with Melissa who lives in a small town close to the eastern shore of Lake Michigan.

Featured Customer | Enamelware Dishes Add Pop of Color to Mornings
If you missed this post last week, it’s worth a look. Our friend Erin, who writes The Sunny Side Up blog, chose the Drake Retro Desk Lamp for her son’s room and the results are fabulous! Erin created the perfect industrial vibe with a navy-and-gray palette accented by pops of orange on the nightstand. It’s a look her young son loves now and will easily grow with over the years.

Guest Blogger | Nine Elements of American Coastal Style
Different seasons call for different settings: winter makes us crave the cozy cocoon of a cabin in the mountains; fall conjures images of brisk afternoons on a farm; and the warmer months inevitably turn our thoughts to the coast — crashing waves, the smell of salt air, and sand between your toes are as quintessentially summer as it gets.

Along with painting and refinishing wood floors, they paid attention to the smaller details such as updating door knobs and cabinet hardware and replacing run-of-the-mill light fixtures. ... Read More
