Though we’re nearing spring, the month of February is still filled with snowy days, icy lakes, and cold nights. Thoughts of warmer days to come were the inspiration behind the February 2016 issue of Northern Home & Cottage. Deep, vibrant plum tones add a touch of warmth and color to the white landscape.

Shops in Traverse City, Suttons Bay, and Elk Rapids are filling their shelves with shades of plum and grape. Here are a few of our favorite Northern Michigan style pieces from the latest Northern Home & Cottage.
