Located in New Buffalo, Michigan, Basically Bedrooms and Interior Design is design studio and retail store combined. The store features full-room settings, complete with side tables, lamps, and art. Shoppers get the true feel of the design.  Basically Bedrooms and Interior Design puts the focus on the often-neglected bedroom. Quality sheets, duvets, and pillows are always in stock, along with select rugs and other home basics.

BAsically pic6With over 40 years interior design experience, Basically Bedrooms and Interior Design founder and owner Lani C. Myron understands the design needs of the entire home. Her extensive knowledge of period furniture and textiles makes her an invaluable resource. Myron combines styles in a subtle and cohesive manner, and possesses a keen sense of scale and balance. In addition, she has an uncanny ability to “keep color in her head.”

Myron’s soft spot for the bedroom comes from her years of designing. Often left for last, the bedroom, she feels, gets short-changed. She also understands the difficulties of tracking down the necessary elements. “I found it difficult to help clients with lighting and furnishing bedrooms,” she says. “It’s costly and time-consuming for clients.” In opening Basically Bedrooms and Interior Design, Myron hopes to alleviate this frustration–for homeowners and designers alike.

Schooled at the Illinois Institute of Art (formerly the Ray Vogue College of Design), Myron has worked as a designer for several design firms, as well as for Marshall Field and Company. Traditional Home and Better Homes and Gardens Special Interest publications have featured her designs. She has received an Award of Recognition from ASID, and was a Top 10 Winner of Metropolitan Home Magazine’s Design Award.

Myron maintains associations with Heartland Alliance for Human Needs, the Design Guild of S. W. Michigan, and the Harbor Country Design District. She is also affiliated with the Heartland House and Garden Tour, the Lake Forest Show House, Benefitting The Infant Welfare Society, and the Designs for Dignity Kitchen Walk.

Myron enjoys travel, architecture, antiques, cooking, and entertaining. It is easy to see these interests reflected in her designs–and in her store.
