New House and Studio Tours Sneak Peek!

This summer I've been all over this great state of Michigan shooting the homes, workspaces and neighborhoods of people doing awesome things. An inspiring young lady curating and doing great things in Grand Rapids, two guys roasting coffee in Lansing, and someone bringing beautiful things and interesting people to Detroit. 

Here is a little sneak peek of a peek into their lives.

I was in SF last week and stopped by the Conversatory of Flowers. It was definitely one of the top conservatories I had ever been to with an amazing collection of plants. I am currently obsessed with Anthuriums and they did not disappoint.
