Few things are better than crisp autumn nights in the Northwoods. You open the windows and smell the faint smokiness of a campfire in the distance.

As we drive the winding roads of the Northwoods, we can’t help but notice the hints of color that are peeking through the trees…indicating that fall is just around the corner and our warm summer days out on the lake are numbered (say it isn’t so!!!). Yes, the boat has to be winterized and the […]
It’s summertime in Northwoods, Wisconsin, everyone! Cabins are open and lively, the lake is calling, and our homes are the perfect spot to enjoy a cool break from the outdoors (or escape the occasional showers). Last month, we talked about sprucing up your outdoor entertaining areas. This month, let’s talk about livening up the interiors… […]
Let’s be honest… spring and early summer have felt a bit… strange (and that might be putting it nicely).

But as hard as it is to hunker down at home and be away […]

A while back, we put together a great guide for bringing your lake house back to life after winter, so why reinvent the […]
Once again, we escaped the snowy, dreary Wisconsin weather in January (at least for a few days) to travel down to one of our favorite events in Atlanta, GA — the annual Accessories & Gifts Market! We spent several exciting days checking out this year’s trends in accessories and home decor. Did the warm weather […]
