It’s a wonderful thing when a passion and a career come together!  That happened to me in 2001... I’ve always loved color and fun, unexpected design! My passion for finding interesting design elements led me to a new career when I decided to open a curated design and decor “boutique” where guests could shop and be inspired.  I knew that I wanted to offer a cheerful mix of fresh design and quality products,  and to be that special store where our customers could find the perfect mix of merchandise they can’t find in other furniture stores or gift boutiques. Today I am blessed with a truly amazing team of very special ladies,  two gorgeous furniture boutiques, a fabulous e-commerce site and wonderful clients who charge me with seeking out the very best in design elements that make their home special. Design is a journey of discovery, and I’ve discovered a lot!

"When people ask me what I do, I generally tell them that I get to play with pattern and color everyday. But the reality is, everyday at Bayberry Cottage offers something totally different than the day before. I work directly with design clients and customers, offering inspiration, ideas and solutions. I design custom furniture and built-ins. I work on the floor, creating, sometimes over-the-top, vignettes (the most fun) to wow and inspire our guests. I work behind the scenes in project management, low level tech support and copywriting. And, yes, I play with pattern and color everyday. Working at Bayberry Cottage is exciting and challenging and rewarding, our customers are amazing and supportive, and our team is talented, fun-loving and inspiring. It’s truly a great place to be!"

"I've called South Haven home for 40 years and the city has always been a fun, unique mix of locals and visitors. Similarly, Bayberry Cottage’s clients are our neighbors, as well as those traveling through. We’re all very excited about our new website, but still, you should come see me in person!  Being at Bayberry is always like visiting with good friends."

"My husband and I retired to South Haven 15 years ago and started working with Gwen on the design of our newly renovated home. Getting to know the staff during this process I decided I had to work at this place that is so much fun. This has been a good fit for me, and I love coming here everyday!"

"I'm a retired interior designer who wanted to stay in touch with the business. There was only one store  where I considered working. Bayberry Cottage. I have been a fan of Bayberry Cottage since she opened her doors 15 years ago. I am so lucky to work with Gwen, Amber and all of "the Girls"! Thank you."
