Magazine Feature: Michigan Home and Lifestyle

This past summer, Michigan Home and Lifestyle Magazine approached me and asked if I would be interested in being their Guest Designer for the 2018 spring issue. This publication releases 4 issues each year, and with each one they select a designer from Michigan to write an article of their choosing and be featured in the magazine. Of course I excitedly agreed, and the day is finally here that I get to share it with you!

Colorful Christmas Tour

Colorful Christmas Tour

With only 5 more days until Christmas, I thought you might enjoy a little tour of the holiday decor I put in my own home this year! I love decorating for the holiday but, being that I have never been a fan of red, my Christmas decor palette is a bit unique...

Lake House - Craft Room

Lake House - Craft Room

This is the craft room of all craft rooms. During an initial conversation with the client, she said that she liked light and bright with pops of pink. Let's be honest, all my brain heard was pops of pink, and then I blacked out a little. Say no more! As a business owner with three kids, the client wanted a space where she could get some work done when she's not at the office; a 'no kid zone' retreat. Not only does it have more cabinetry than the kitchen, it has ribbon dowels, wrapping paper storage, cardstock paper slots for every color, a sink, a crafting island with stools, a seating area, a desk, a television, and more storage than I could ever dream of in my own home. 

Lake House - Master Suite

Lake House - Master Suite

I love, love, love this master suite. As I previously mentioned, my client’s design taste is light and airy with a hint of glitz, but her husband has a more rustic and natural design style. While some spaces in the home lean a little more towards here taste, it was important to me to marry the two styles inside the master suite. I think this space is the perfect harmony of the two.

Lake House - Kitchen

Lake House - Kitchen

The lakehouse kitchen is right off of the open concept great room and dining room on the third level of this home. Yes, you read that correct – the kitchen is on the THIRD level. The floor plan is unique because while the house is set into a dune, the first two levels have dune views and the third level has a view of Lake Michigan. So, all of the key spaces like the great room, dining room, kitchen, and master suite are up on the third level.

Residential Sports Complex - North Muskegon

Residential Sports Complex - North Muskegon

I’ll admit, this one is a little unique compared to most of the homes I design as it’s not often a residential interior designer gets an opportunity to design a sports complex. So, what is this project anyway? The client wanted to add a basketball court, exercise room, and locker room on to their home. To avoid having the home tower over the neighborhood...

Heritage Hill - Historic Renovation

Heritage Hill - Historic Renovation

Built in 1905, this gorgeous home has maintained it’s original character for over 100 years. When our client decided to remodel the entire master suite, there was no question that we wanted to try to preserve that level of detail while also introducing timeless yet contemporary elements.

Here at Fuchsia Design, we’ve done our fair share of deep renovations and new construction homes. However, this house was a new ballgame for us; a brand new home that needed a lot of love.
