LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

I am eager to present to you the palpable energy packed into this spring’s issue of Michigan HOME and Lifestyle. Sure, spring is a time for renewal and rebirth and growth, but this spring I feel especially inspired and motivated. Whether it’s to spring clean, start a new project, remodel, try something new or finally put in that pool you’ve always wanted, we’ve got the tools to get started.
We’re covering all the bases this issue; the list goes on and on. We’re talking about windows, decking, pools, backsplashes, landscaping design and architecture, flowers, festivals, food, wine, books, interior designers, kitchen designers, and – of course – kitchens, kitchens, kitchens. This issue of MHL allows you to really dive inside the inner workings of remarkable Michigan homes with builders and subcontractors whose knowledge, experience and specialties are beyond impressive.
We head behind the scenes in an exciting special feature on the West Michigan Chapter of the NKBA virtual kitchen and bath tours. This feature gives you an amazing glimpse of the best-of-the-best in kitchens and baths throughout West Michigan. Use your computer to remotely “walk” through each kitchen from the comfort of your own home.
After you’ve finished reading this issue, I hope you’re ready to spring up and get started on your next endeavor as Michigan weather begins to warm up. I hope you feel as energized and inspired as we do here at MHL from the incredible talent we see each issue. What are we waiting for? Let’s get started!
