Interior Designers, ShopKeepers, Counselors to Second Homeowners. We have a lot to do, but the seasonal ebb and flow of this tiny resort town sets the pace.
Much of our summer is spent catching up with second homeowners and vacationers we haven’t seen in months and putting all of the casual, colorful, lake house treasures we found over the winter markets into inspiring vignettes throughout the store. Our retail clients tell us regularly that they would like to just move in and that they come here to be inspired.
Our vibrant, easy-going aesthetic is relaxed, vacation-minded and really *pops* in our beautiful old building with original hardwood floors, tin ceilings and exposed brick walls. Never tired, Bayberry Cottage is a must-see again and again, as we remake ourselves and our Lake Michigan Style every season.
In the winter, when our seasonal friends return to their “real lives,” the store gets quieter, but the Design Team at Bayberry Cottage gets busy! We’ve got trade markets to attend, a new look to plan for the store for the following season, and several vacation homes to prepare for our clients’ return in the Spring.
We live and breathe our clients’ homes through the winter so that they can love their vacation home come summer. Design concepts, space planning, working with the best trades teams around, followed by installation and accessorizing to perfection. Clients wait all winter for the big reveal and we hear it’s their favorite part of the experience. They’ve been away for the winter and return in the spring to see their beautiful, personal, custom vacation spaces for the first time. After lots of hugs and jumping up and down and occasionally tears, we say goodbye and back to the store we go to start the seasonal cycle again.
No two days are the same, but there is always cheer and beauty and friendship. We consider ourselves very lucky to have the opportunity to create and inspire, in the place and with the people that are most inspiring to us!
