West Michigan Wednesday: “Death of a Salesman” at Central Park Players in Grand Haven 

One of the things I love most about my home is the location! I love living in West Michigan and enjoy many activities around town. I wanted to create a series that explores some of the great things that this area has to offer.

“Death of a Salesman” opens this weekend at Central Park Players in Grand Haven!


As always, here is the blurb from the website:

“The story revolves around the last days of Willy Loman, a failing salesman, who cannot understand how he failed to win success and happiness. Through a series of tragic soul-searching revelations of the life he has lived with his wife, his sons, and his business associates, we discover how his quest for the “American Dream” kept him blind to the people who truly loved him. “

Performances will be at the Grand Haven Community Center located at 421 Columbus St., Grand Haven May 12-13 @ 7:30, May 14 @ 2:00, May 19-20 at 7:30.

Tulips for days! 

I am loving these tulips that I picked up around Valentines Day! There is just something about a bouquet of tulips that makes my living room feel so fresh and ready for spring! 


You can never have too many tulips, right!?

We have had some unseasonably warm weather and the pretty pastels bring that springtime feeling right into my living room! 

Heart Haven Holidays: Christmas Decor

I had so much fun decorating my living room for the holidays this year. My color pallet was silver, gold, and copper and I just love how everything came together!

I put together this vignette using a gold and marble tray from Targent, a succulent, anthropologie candle, and dove figurine also from Target

I love putting out this jingle bell display every year! This year, I added these marble trees from Target.

Here is an overview of my living room. How have you decorated for the holidays?

Pretty Purple Chairs

One of my favorite things about my home is the pedestal bistro table that I picked up from West Elm a few years back. I have had it paired with the tan parsons chairs from my first house but never really liked the look. I wanted to find a cool gray chair with interesting details to match my couch and other chairs. But when I saw this pair of dark purple chairs at Target, I hoped they would be the perfect pop of color in my fairly neutral room.

As as you can tell from the lilacs in this picture, I’ve had these for a few months now. It’s hard to see the color, but they are a deep eggplant color. It has been fun to play with the purple tones in my paint color and they have worked with my holiday decorations surprisingly well. Have you made any bold color choices that have paid off?
