Kirsten Grove
Interior Stylist, Kirsten Grove, has always had a passion for interior design…well, at least since she was 9 years old and was given free reign at decorating her bedroom.  Back then, she chose an eclectic palette of rainbows, polka dots, and stripes. Today Kirsten uses Simply Grove as a creative outlet for all things aesthetically beautiful.  Started in 2008 as a way to show off eye catching design and decor from all over the world, Simply Grove has become a hang-out for like-minded creatives with a love of interiors and an appetite for design eye-candy. Kirsten has styled and designed for clients all over the world. Her most recent projects have included residential in Stockholm, commercial in Seattle and more residential in NYC, LA and Denver.

Janna Smith

Janna has always had a love for design. Like most design gurus, she has the ability to create something out of literally nothing. Born in Kohtla-Jarve Estonia, Janna appreciates modern design and dreams of living in a large loft style space one day. Now residing in Boise after living in Seattle and Ventura California, Janna brings a sense of relaxed style and hard work to the Simply Grove team. She creates mad DIY’s and could literally build an entire house if she wanted. Her hobbies include shopping, cleaning and eating.


Blog contributor, Mindy Bucklew, comes to Simply Grove with a background in both architecture and literature. Her deep love of design began during her college days, when she first laid eyes on an Eames lounge chair…and the rest is history. A native of central Florida, Mindy moved to Boise, ID, with her husband and two young sons in 2011. Her biggest design project to date is the remodel of her mid century split-level home in the Boise foothills. When she isn’t writing for Simply Grove, Mindy enjoys cooking, long bike rides, and watching far too many reruns of Downton Abbey.
