LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

Spring is a time for renewal, rebirth, and new beginnings – a fresh start. Which is exactly what Michigan Home and Lifestyle is depicting in our first issue of 2014. You'll see new topics, new layouts, and new inspiration without losing that classic, elegant, and warm feel that this publication has always emulated.
The most exciting addition we've made is the implementation of our design section. And who better to kick-off this new feature, and grace the cover of our Spring Home Show issue, than Michigan interior designer and HGTV Star, Tylor Devereaux? Read as he shares his expertise and offers professional tips to brighten and balance your home.
Follow us on our journey to kickoff spring by learning some tried-and-true Spring Cleaning Saviors with advice from readers like you. Take a break from cleaning and check out our Spring into Shape article, where a professional bikini model shares some quick, at-home toning moves to get bikini ready for summer. Yes, I said summer! And don't get caught in the rain with quick spring hair fixes from salon professionals.
As always, we take you through the talented and stunning work of Michigan builders and subcontractors. Gain inspiration for your own home, or simply admire the breathtaking detail and craftsmanship that these homes exude. Be sure to visit the Home Show near you for more insight and inspiration – see our Home Show calendar to find dates and more information.
I am thrilled to be a part of this publication and want to welcome you to a new chapter of Michigan Home and Lifestyle magazine. Take the next step with me into 2014 and watch the evolution of a classic magazine.

Editor-in-Chief
