I’m Michele, creator of Hello Lovely.
I live with my husband in a Chicagoland fixer
upper we are renovating ourselves.
It is dusty here.

Our sons (one in college, one in law school) recently
returned to the formerly empty nest…wait, what? Oui.
It is never dull here.
I write professionally for magazines (hundreds of pieces
published in print), and creativity is my jam
whether it’s a painting, an essay, or a new recipe.

I’m also a songwriter. True!

Hello Lovely is an ongoing love letter
to my readership who, like me,
long to make more peace with their homes.

 

I made these.
my studio.

Skills

Writing.
My voice is distinctive, engaging, and conversational.
I love lighthearted banter and lyrical
commentary and never take myself overly seriously
(that’s half the battle right there).

Photography.
I have always been good.
I’m not techie,
though I know how to edit.
As an artist, I work with natural light and
capture an elusive, warm ethereal mood.

Styling.
It’s fun and best when it appears
non-contrived, effortless,
and a bit imperfect.
My style is a mix of
European sensibility,
casual romance,
and
a fair measure of
dreamy
WHITE.
