simply grove office

I Instagrammed my studio this week and got some inquiries about my desk. I’ve had this desk for a few years now and I’m just not getting tired of it. My father in law built the sawhorse legs and my husband built the top. We used Surface Skin from Blik to cover the desk top. Though it doesn’t offer storage. it offers all of the tabletop space that I need! Go here for a somewhat easy sawhorse desk DIY. If you’re not in the place to build one, Ikea has these leg options and tabletop options. Below are more sawhorse desks to feast your eyes on.

Home Life featured this gorgeously styled room by Julie Green and Captured by Armelle Habib. It really caught my eye not only because it is aesthetically beautiful, but it makes having an office space in a bedroom breathtaking and functional. See more below to get tips on how to create a lovable, working space like this…

Use side tables and wall hooks for extra storage and convenience.

Place your desk or table towards the window to enjoy the sunshine and outdoors while inside. You will feel much more inspired peeping outdoors and soaking in some natural light, rather than facing a wall.

Use your favorite dresser as desk storage in addition to clothes storage. When you have extra storage, you can keep your desk de-cluttered and organized.

Use greenery to bring freshness and life to your sleep and work space.

Great lighting is always an essential. See more tips on the design of this room from Home Life here.

When you have a study space like this and handy desk accessories with great design, back to school could not be better for parents and kids alike! What a treat to study in such a serene space. There is nothing more inspiring than an uncluttered and organized office space to get work done.

When styling homes, I consistently find what I need at West Elm. They have been a constant recourse of modern, timeless and on trend pieces. They’ve just launched some new items and I’m loving them all. They have a few new sofas that are the cats meow. I’m also loving most every single new chair.

This desk! Someone, please get it.

Love this TV console table. I give the legs two thumbs up.

This is a great streamlined sofa. Neutral enough to go with a plethora of styles.

Everyone needs a good pouf.

Here’s some other pieces that I’m loving at the moment. Shop all of their new arrivals here.

I styled a shoot at my friends house a few months go for an upcoming project.  It was geared towards female college students creating a whimsical study space.  My favorite item in this shoot?  The horse of course!



We got our paint in the mail today!!!  YAY!!  I am so excited to get everything decorated.  (I can only take “skin” walls for so long.)  For our office, we are loving this sawhorse idea.  I helped a friend create a desk similar to these last year and I loved the look.

My cousin Rachelle does it all.  Blogs all things children over at Kenziepoo, is the editor in chief of La Petite Magazine, mommy to Kenzie, wife to her preacher hubby and gives herself constantly to help and support young people.  She is pretty darn awesome!  Here is her {one space}.

I love this room because of the scandinavian and simplistic feel to it! I could see myself getting hours and hours of work done here.  The only thing missing?  My computer.

Thanks Rachelle!!

The other day while working at Brass Razoo, I had a few moments to spare so I decided to style a desk (that sold to this lovely chic).  I had the table made by a close friends dad.  He did a fantastic job!!  Anyhoot, I styled it 3 different ways with some of our products at Brass Razoo.  (Everything seen is for sale.)  Let me know what your fave look is!!
