If any one style is overused, a space can feel too matchy-matchy and overdone. Mixing design styles is our favorite way to create interest throughout a space … and there’s no better combo than rustic glam!   For us, fall also means it’s tailgating season! I don’t know about you, but here in the Midwest, we do tailgates big. Whether it’s a Michigan Football game (sorry Spartys!), NFL or local high school match, there’s nothing quite like a Midwest tailgate with your family and friends.

Brisk mornings, sweet honeycrisp apples, fresh donuts, a warm pot of chili, sweaters & boots, chilly campfires … it’s fall y’all!   For us, fall also means it’s tailgating season! I don’t know about you, but here in the Midwest, we do tailgates big. Whether it’s a Michigan Football game (sorry Spartys!), NFL or local high school match, there’s nothing quite like a Midwest tailgate with your family and friends.

Building community is something of great importance to us. To be quite honest, it’s the most important and fulfilling part of our work. Delivering beautiful and functional design is one thing, but doing so while also forming lasting connections with wonderful humans is far greater! Human connection brings us energy and fuels our design engine, and we’re so honored to continue creating bonds with members of our growing community.

They may look like a splurge to outsiders, but our barn renovations are some of our clients’ most intentional designs. A growing family’s gathering place. A fitness studio. A retail market. An event space. A flower farm. Even an animal sanctuary. There is no end to the possibilities with barn structures. If you can dream it, you can build it. And that’s what we’ve found ourselves doing more and more.

As the seasons change, so does a desire for a fresh chapter. I don't know about you, but we love a fall drive here in the midwest. Looking at the changing trees and dreaming of the beautiful homes that pass by.  "What if transformed my home into the ones I dream of on my Pinterest board?!" "What if we sold and started fresh?" We receive lots of inquiries this time of year asking for just this. While the state of the market has been swirling in headlines lately, we thought we'd put together a market update for those wondering about the current state of the housing market, interest rates, and renovation loan options (OK, yes the less than fun parts of bringing your Pinterest board to reality, but important too!!)
