Lake Michigan Cottage Renewed

renewed beach cottage

“Renewal” must be one of the most beautiful words in the English language. 

flowers

It conjures images of fresh flowers growing after a long winter, new babies born and that much-needed (but often far too seldom taken) time for ourselves.

Summer, for us, is always a time of renewal, a time to relax the schedule at least a tiny bit and focus on more fun, less work and, of course, no school! 

renewal

More time with friends and family, longer days and shorter to-do lists help provide that much-needed renewal for us. 

Just like we do, our homes can begin to get a little tired, not only from basic wear and tear but also in the ways in which we adorn them. 

This beyond charming Lake Michigan cottage was ready for a bit of a facelift. 

And, in the hands of Chenault James Interior Design, it certainly found its new life.

A bright and sunny palette instantly breathes new life into a space, and nothing says “fun” like yellow and green. 

Old furniture gets new sense of purpose with fresh paint, making the entire space feel fresh but still maintaining a treasured home’s history. 

Nothing adds character to a beach cottage quite like wood paneling. 

But painting it makes the entire scheme feel lighter and brighter. 

Simple touches like these yellow floors add a vibrant element. 

And fun hints of the color bring joy into the bathroom. 

Even the laundry room has loads of personality! We couldn’t adore this Lake Michigan home–and its chic, effortless combination of old and new, any more. Renewal, indeed!

Wishing you a wonderful day, chic readers. Thanks so much for making us a part of your day!
