“A house is a home when it shelters the body and comforts the soul.” — Phillip Moffitt
It’s always an honor to have your home featured in the “Homestyle” section of The Detroit News. Here’s a link to the article that runs this weekend, featuring our 1927 Tudor-revival home decorated for Christmas. Design writer Jeanine Matlow did a wonderful job telling our story. To see additional photos that didn’t appear in the article click here. From our house to yours, a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! — CL

What fun to peek into your magical home!
Oh. My. Goodness.
Wow, for a minute there I was speechless. I mean I knew you were a big deal, a published author and all. BUT YOU ARE A REALLY BIG DEAL!
Your home is magical, and yet so warm and cozy… friendly. The white bedroom is the perfect touch.
I can’t wait to see the F.L.W. home:)
Merry Merry, I’m so glad to know you!
Truly a lovely home. I see why you decorate for the holidays the way you do. The house itself is too beautiful to clutter up.
Loved the article! Beautiful house. Merry Christmas!
It’s all so enchanting , Cindy.
I hope your Christmas has been beyond magical and that you are feeling as much joy and peace and love as you share.
What a lovely home! I can see you in it so clearly now and the story about when you met your husband is precious. I love how you have such a long history together and still have so much obvious joy in your relationship as seen in the photo of you hugging his neck.
Warm wishes for a Happy New Year.
