Last night we randomly @netflix and chilled the comedy/drama ‘About Time’ and loved it- here’s why:
Sucker for a Rachel McAdams movie, love Billy Nighy and any film where a lovely home is a character itself (The Holiday, Notebook, etc) which in this movie is @thebigbeautifulbeachhouse a real life wedding, lodging and event venue by the sea. Not to mention a cute love story, nothing’s more important than family theme and we’ve added the soundtrack to our Spotify playlist. Enjoy y’all! #quarantineandchill @ Netflix

This month’s Cabin Fever Club XC Ski + Raclette Cheese event was SO MUCH FUN 🥳thank you @staceybrugeman and family for venturing around the bay from Leeland to join us! Their twin boys skied in the Vasa Jr race and still could have lapped us on our 4.5k ski at @shantycreekresorts the conditions were awesome and this family is the epitome of active outdoor adventure. Their 3yo daughter skied most of the loop rather than riding in the chariot and their sweet 11yo pointer Yoki loved mushing the boys sled dog style. We had such a blast! Between their sled dog and empty chariot other skiers we passed along the way would jokingly inquire “how much for a ride?” After our ski we returned to the Farmhouse where @mi_life_afield had the fires burning and delicious spreads for Raclette Cheese grilling. Our lovely guests had just moved to northern Michigan from CO so we had lots to talk about from historic farmhouse quirks and ownership to favorite restaurants near and far to firewood stacking techniques and it was the most lovely evening and a pleasure hosting them here.
Next month we’re rafting the Jordan River followed by Fish & Chips fireside at the farmhouse. Let me know if you have any questions and the event registration link is in our bio. Overnight accommodations are still available. We hope you can join us!

Happy snowy Sunday y’all! We welcomed a foot of fresh snow and two amazing wedding couples toured for a venue site visit yesterday. They braved some serious winter weather from downstate and out of state to get here and we’re so appreciative. They also walked through knee deep snow like it was their job imaging it all leafy and a green lawn later this year. R+G brought their sweet 7 yr old yellow lab Barkley, an air frisbee catching champ, with visions of an alfresco farm table wedding on the front lawn. Architectural engineers, designers and all around house purveyors with an appreciation for an old fashion 2x4, M+H and family were a delight to have here and learn from. Yesterday’s tours were a welcomed reminder of why we do what we do and how fortunate we feel to host you and yours here. Speaking of meeting rad new people, we still have a few spots available for next weekends Cabin Fever Club Nordic Edition Saturday Feb 8th from 1-4 enjoying a leisurely xc ski at @shantycreekresorts followed by raclette cheese fireside at the Farmhouse.

While visiting my sister @boomaynard and her husband Jeremy in Cincinnati we all tried to help out however possible as they welcomed their first non-four legged fur child into the world and their charming #fixerupper #capecodhome they bought this summer. My mom walked Grey and Mini their dogs and did endless laundry, Kyle @mi_life_afield cooked wild duck breast with blueberry sauce and repaired things, my dad bagged drywall Tuesday morning in the rain before the garbage truck came and made 1,000 trips to the hardware store and Jack read to his new cousin, provided pacifiers and entertained the baby during diaper changes. There was lots to do and it was fun! I tackled this nook landing zone space between their kitchen and breakfast table directly across from their back door which they use when leaving by car. It’s 4.5’ wide and just under 2’ deep. Their vision was for it to function as a family information center and mail drop, spot. It needed light, storage and style. 6hrs and 3 stores later this little nook came to life. I found the cute antique white washed table with storage bins at @nadeaufurniture the market basket frame mirror (an amazing clearance score from $99 to $28 and beaded side wooden tray at @pier1 and the cream colored stool, ‘toss’ bin, wooden pen holder, navy shell picture frame, navy striped keepsake box, magnolia flowers and vase (we’re from GA) and wooden wall hanging clip board at @homegoods and for the cute wooden lamp I shopped from their bedroom ;) For $550 it now looks lovely and functions for this on the go and growing family. We love reimagining spaces and designing them first by shopping what your already have in your home or local antique and thrift stores and lastly big box online retailers. We provide a free 30 minute consultation via FaceTime or in person within 40 miles of Central Lake serving East Traverse City, Petoskey, Charlevoix, Elk Rapids, Gaylord areas and are happy to travel for non family members, too :) Swipe right to see before photo and enjoy your Sunday, y’all! @ Terrace Park, Ohio

Fresh eats, faces and places 👌June you were a blast from end to end. We adored hosting our design and dog obsessed @airbnb guests the lovely @brosier_ and @degroffdesign this weekend. Check out how they are making GR even more awesome with their larger than life artistic talents. Our garden beds got a #whatnottowear level makeover thanks to @flynnpower the Carmindy of lanscaping. We celebrated our hot new look with a wild caught Alaskan sockeye salmon dinner by @mi_life_afield followed by a #sundayfunday Torch Lake cruise... Feelin’ like the luckiest and loving it.

Honored and having a blast collaborating with Cellar 1914 / Shooks Farm offering interior design consultation for their winery's new tasting room and courtyard.
They reached out when each of their wives, three of my dearest friends, were providing design input and had differing ideas. Haha!
Our goal is to tell the story of a centennial farm through a visitor's experience by what they see, feel, smell taste, touch and hear. Numerous materials have been up-cycled from the farm to create the interior of this space. Beams, boards, metal and art.
The crown, baseboards, window and door trim are original to the farm and are bunk boards with raw and unique edges from where cows have rubbed and shaped them over 100 years. I was super skeptical about this trim choice when they presented the enormous 16'x8" boards and with their incredible carpentry skills it's my favorite component. What'da I know!
There are so many more cool features yet to come such as Grandpa's work bench, Ampersand Lettering Lab mural, this gorgeous barn beam chandelier and vintage stamped fruit bins.
Don't miss it if you're in our area this summer and I can't wait to meet you here for a glass! Cheers!

Small project we did today...

Blue bird skies and being good boys 🐶 This photo is from a year ago, on March 3, 2018 when our neighbors came over let the pups play in the sunshine so naturally, day drinking ensued☀️This post is in honor of their beloved German Pointer Tucker who passed away in his sleep this weekend. We are going to miss him- waving hello from our porch or yard on their daily evening walks, his energetic wiggly greetings and I know when the school bus rolls by he’ll be excitedly barking from above ❤️
