Remember Brass Razoo??  The amazing boutique owned by Elise Vaughn?  Where I sold custom furniture?  Well, Elise has ventured out and launched a new web site!  You will find INSANE jewelry on there right now.  And expect vintage, designer vintage and re designed vintage clothing and accessories within the month.  I would wear EVERY SINGLE PIECE!  Congrats Elise!  You are amazing.

The newest Rue is my favorite issue yet!!  All about Global, this issue has homes ranging all over the world.  The Iceland home (pg 78) took my breath away.  The contrast of styles of furniture, colors and texture is divine!!

Love it Rue!!

Hey peeps!!  I am starting a new series here on SG.  (It won’t be every week and please don’t think that I think that I came up with this idea.  I didn’t!)  I get alot of emails asking if there are cheaper solutions for furniture and accessories that are posted on SG or around the web.  So I thought I would take some of those pieces and suggest a more inexpensive route to go.

First off is the classic Eames Molded Plywood Chair.  I adore this chair!!!  If I could, I would outfit a whole dining table with these chairs.  But for the price…not right now.  The Modernist chair from Urban Outfitters is a great match to consider.  Similar modern lines, subtle curves and (what I’ve read) very sturdy.  I dig it!

What do you think of this series??  I would love to know!!  And if you have a product that you would like matched, email me at simplygrove22@gmail.com.

Bedding can sometimes be a tricky purchase!  You want something unique, that no one else has and you want a good deal.  Plum Pretty Sugar Loungerie is a cozy-chic apparel and home accessories line.  They carry bedding and curtains that are perfectly lovely.  Go see for yourself!

If you follow me on Instagram, you already saw this collage.  I was in Las Vegas last week helping my ultra stylish, ultra amazing cousin with her home.  She is revamping almost every room so we did much brainstorming and room planning.  In the end, her home will be an eclectic mix of Traditional, Modern and a bit of Hollywood Glam.  I can’t wait for to see the results!

Hey peeps!  I am closing up shop for this week.  I’ve been in Las Vegas with my cousin for the last few days, redesigning her beautiful home.  We have shopped, laughed, pumped our veins with coffee, shopped some more, brainstormed, measured aaaannndddd shopped.  The design aesthetic is nothing less than Elle Decor meets Vogue Living Australia.  It is going to be BEAUTIFUL!

See you on Monday!!

Clean, simple and gorgeous describe all of these chairs.  They feel like beautiful sculptural pieces that can be used everyday.

This oak kitchen has reversed the stigma on oak.  Oak was once outdated and stuffy.  This kitchen is clean and modern!

Last Saturday we attended a Lavender Festival outside of Boise, in Nampa.  We cut our own Lavender, ate Lavender ice cream, drank Lavender Lattes and I even brought home a Lavender cookie recipe.  The cookies didn’t quite work out (Ethan dry heaved and Eden said “good try mom”) but I think I know what to change for next time.

I may be a bit lavender’ed out…:)
