I know its already a bit into the weekend but never the less, have a joy filled weekend and Labor Day!! I leave you with a photo of my son’s room which was my project this week. My husband (my good looking carpenter) painted the walls white and left the top 2 feet and the ceiling the already existing mocha color . I have a few more things to add. Some art, photos, and my grandpa’s antique desk to name a few. I am also on the hunt for the perfect chair for his room. I spotted a lime green louis style chair that needed some TLC at a thrift store for like $20 but when I went back to get it, it was gone:( Oh well.
Please check back next week for a fun giveaway!!!
Thank you so so much Holly for making Simply Grove your New Blog of the Week!
Go check out my amazing friend Jenn’s 2 beautiful daughters on ohdeedoh!! Your heart will possibly melt:)
So I was just browsing Apartment Therapy’s Ohdeedoh for a couple purposes (hint hint JL) and I saw this room. Oh my goodness! I am always (seriously) on the search for the perfect little girls bedroom. It needs to have the perfect balance of pink, girliness, quirkiness and a little bit of fluff. This room fits the bill!
The latest issue of Elle Decor is my pick for Magazine Monday. I already posted on Nanette Lepore’s home designed by Jonathan Adler which is spectacular. I also love Nate Berkus’s Chicago home. All in all go get this issue!
Good Morning! Lets begin the week by examining this room. What do you think? Are you seeing purple this season??
There a certain people who love textile design. Then there are those who love to design furniture. And then there are those who just design rooms. What about the ones who do it all! Like the Day’s?? Yes.
The furniture designer Robin Day and his textile designer wife Lucienne made a huge statement in British Design after World War 2. They pioneered a new modern idiom and are still Britain’s most celebrated design couple. Read there amazing bio here.

I thought this would be a great room to view today:) It is so bright and cheery. I love all the gorgeous moldings and the vinyl wallpaper that resembles grass cloth. This entryway is simply fantastic!

Today’s Magazine Monday is dedicated to Septembers issue of Domino. This issue is filled with bright and bold ideas. The front cover sets the tone for what you will find inside. British designer Matthew Williamson’s home is a melting pot of color, patterns, textiles and a plethora of styles. Vanessa Bruno’s home is simple, clean and stylish. My favorite space is Tori Mellott’s 450 square foot apartment. She got her inspiration for her calm beige and gray space from Tom Delavan’s home.
The vanity + stool write up previewed a collection of adorable pairs! I give this issue 2 SimplyGrove thumbs up!
Traditional Home featured a renovated ’50 ranch house, decorated by interior designers Laura Forbes Carlin and Alison Forbes. What they did in the children’s spaces is so cute!! I found this photo via ohdeedoh.
