There is nothing better than waking up and stepping into the bathroom in the morning for your daily shower and it being this light, bright, and calm space where each piece has been chosen with design in mind. That’s at least my dream. We have been working on making some minor updates to our master bathroom and I am thinking that this is a good time to get intentional about what sits in our space. I gathered a few items I am eyeing for our new room and some that I just love the idea of such as an all black toothbrush (!!!) I am all about minimal, but I love it being lived in. These textures, colors, and patterns together create a very calm, simple, and inviting space that I am pretty sure anyone would want to spend the morning in. What is one of your musts to make your bathroom calm and inviting to you in the morning and in the evening?

Hello! I’m Megan Gilger,

A strong believer that nature and the seasons are our greatest teachers. We live on a hill in Leelanau County, Michigan just a stone’s throw from Lake Michigan. This land we are responsible for is where we are focused on building a life around the seasons and intention. We spend our days here building a regenerative model of living and focusing our garden on native plants and intensive polyculture planting styles. My focus is less on self-sufficiency and more on community-sufficiency through how we grow and connect through the seasons.
