I have been severely in to color this last week!  I color blocked my fireplace, which I love but is only temporary (I think).  I also worked on a project that involved giant colorful scalene triangles.  There is something energizing about color against a white backdrop.  I highly recommend it!!

Here is what I got so far!  Most of it was designed and made by the one and only, HUBBY!  Honestly, my husband should take over Simply Grove.  He is just way too good.

So far we have… a sofa, coffee table, bed, slipper chair, dining table and one dining chair, rug and pillows made from vintage wallpaper, rug and blanket for bed used from a fabric sample from elime home and a gold frame that needs some pop art.

I just ordered some PHAT accessories and a couple furniture pieces last night off of Etsy.  This is SO FUN!!!

So, what do you think so far??  It’s evolving into a handmade modern house with little pops of color, zipping through.  I heart it.

Emma posted this house yesterday and I just had to show you the kitchen!  The warm wood, simple lines and collection of items give me serious kitchen fever.

I lovvvvvveeee new sheets!  There is something about crawling into bed with crisp, new sheets, waiting to be cuddled with.  I really really REALLY wish that all of these H&M sheets find their way to my home, someday.

Ixxi has a couple new products available.  I am loving the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam ceramics wallpaper and the royal delft wallpaper.  Both can be used as room dividers.

I am a bit obsessed with new paint colors.  The possibilities are somewhat endless with color.  A whole room can be changed in a moment with a pop of paint on the wall.  Annette Tatum is set to release 28 new colors this fall.  I can only imagine how pretty this collection will be.  Her eye for color is always spot on.

Check out Annette’s blog here.

I remember seeing this house in Vogue Living Australia (January/February 2010 issue) and feeling my heart go pitter patter.  The colors in the art are so captivating.  Such a winning space!
