We've always appreciated the lakeside city of Holland. When we lived in GR, we often made the trek out just to catch the sunset; or to eat at one of the amazing eateries. It's a small town, but is progressive and has amenities. It's in many ways the best of both worlds. Now, as many of you are aware, we've moved to the Holland lakeshore and are pumped to share more about our favorite Michigan coastal town.
If I could give ONE piece of advice when it comes to home design, it would be this: PILLOWS CHANGE THE ROOM. That may sound dramatic, but truly, designer pillows have the ability to elevate a space. Today, I am sharing my favorite affordable pillows that mimic high design pieces. I shop these sources often. You can find many of these pillows in our home!
Painting the bunk room paneling was the most tedious, excruciating paint project I have ever embarked upon. We had gotten a quote to get is professionally sprayed for around $2,000. Looking back, it had probably been worth it! Because this paint project began back in Feb/March, I figured it was good a time as ever to tackle a DIY project. Save $2,000 and keep busy during the covid lockdown? Why not?
Older, wiser Hannah can think of many reasons "why not"
I've linked everything we have selected thus far for the lake house! I will update this page as we renovate and move in!
Big Sky is a place that exudes serenity. It's hard not to slow down and to take in the 360 degree views of mountains, pines, and you guessed it--a sky as blue and beautiful as it is big. We scooted away for the Labor Day weekend, and were able to drive an hour down to Yellowstone and The Grand Tetons as well! It's a road trip that EVERYONE must do. These national parks are as good as it gets!
I have had this on my calendar for weeks! This launch is SO GOOD! I am definitely going to order a few things for the lake house and an upcoming project. Shop quick...each season, this line sells out fast!
If you have been following along on Instagram for a while, you may remember that we built a house in Holland two years ago! This was our very first rental property! We bought a lot downtown Holland (one of the very last lots downtown!), and built this 4 bed, 2 bath home, and rented it out for two years before selling. We learned SO MUCH through this process, and are immensely thankful that we embarked on this journey.
