I stumbled across a stylishly talented design firm from Michigan in the US  & I just had to share it with you all

Dwellings traditional living room
Dwellings is an interior design studio owned by Laura Davidson
Laura & her team not only help their clients in making the best choice in fabrics, furniture, accessories and paint colors that create a warm and comfortable space, they also assist in designing a new home from the plan  through to completion

Dwellings traditional kitchen

This kitchen is divine,
I'm guessing by the lovely fabric covered stools that NO small children live here!!

Dwellings traditional exterior
Dwellings studio is  located in a cute cottage in Grand ville, Michigan, where they showcase a wide range of their products.
Dwellings traditional porch
Dwellings studio is open to the public & each time you visit there is a new look.
Dwellings traditional bedroom
From their portfolio this  Green Lake home was one of my favourites.

I could seriously see myself living in this home, the colour scheme is so calming I think it would be nice to put your feet up & relax at the end of the day!

I also love this tranquil color scheme. What is it about neutrals anyway? Hope your plans on your home are progressing!

Warmly, Michelle

Okay, here's the deal. When I win lotto, you and I are going to take a trip to the US and see these homes in the flesh! Stay in one for a month or two, soak it all up and then come home and recreate the look in our own homes. In typical fashion - I love these too!
