About Me

My photo
A couple of years ago, I changed everything. I left my fashion design career and life in New York City for a new life raising my kids with my husband in Michigan. The trouble is...I can't stop designing. Coventry Drive is where I can show what I think is beautiful and stylish and inspiring.

Hydrangea Kitchen Visit

I love Mid century modern and Scandinavian design, and beauty in function. I'm mad for Henry Clarke fashion photos, clean graphic prints, and Dries Van Noten.
But... as I sit on my Bertoia designed side chair working at my MacBook Pro, I sometimes yearn for something charming, vintage, homey, and a little bit different.

Hydrangea Kitchen is just the place.

Vintage kitchen finds are mixed with new, and a cheery dining area welcomes.

One of the managers, Megan, greets me and steers me to the menu.  She makes all the sauces and her brother, Ryan, is the pastry chef. ( Another brother is away at the Culinary Institute of America.)

High tea is served every afternoon.
It's a place to sit and linger.

Hydrangea Kitchen
371 Fisher Road
Grosse Pointe, MI  48230
Plus they have a store two doors down with clothing, accessories, and home goodies.

Makes me want to be there, too. :)

So nice to meet you through BYW.
All the best,
