Hi, friends. Welcome to Hello Lovely, a decor inspiration and lifestyle blog. I’m Michele Ranard, a Chicagoland-based professional counselor, writer, artist, and blogger. I share interiors, DIY home renovation, lifestyle and European-inspired everything with an audience of design savvy readers (97% women in the U.S.A.). I’m a published writer with a background in education, and a more personal and detailed bio is here.
Hello Lovely is growing in popularity, with 4 million views, and 4.6 million monthly Pinterest views.
Education: B.A. in psychology (Northwestern University), M.Ed. in Counseling (University of Missouri-Columbia).
Writing Experience: Hundreds of my articles have appeared in print in more than 100 women’s, parenting, and home magazines across North America on the topics of parenting, humor, education, creativity, and housekeeping. My writing style is conversational, light-hearted, lyrical, and often stream-of-consciousness for true authenticity.
