Sometimes when we explore the story behind one home, we're unexpectedly introduced to another. Back in January, we featured an interesting treehouse-inspired living concept created by local graphic designer, Chris Hemmah and Ruki Modern. As Hemmah shared his lifestyle between Fargo and Palm Springs, we were also introduced to his love - local artist and author, Darcy Simonson. Although Hemmah may have had some influence on her desert abode, Simonson had embraced a lakeside lifestyle all her own in the Minnesota Northwoods. This month, we headed to the most serene environmental lake we've ever laid eyes on and took a tour of Simonson's personal retreat and lakeside art studio. Follow the wind chimes, loon yodels, and wildflowers down to glass waters, and we'll tell you the tale of how a charming fishing cabin inspired artists, authors, teachers and personal healing.
Midwest Nest loves the culture from the upper midwest, and we are excited to share stories from around the area.
