The Perfect Holiday Table

This year I will be hosting a small group at our house for Christmas. I love hosting (not necessarily cooking though) and I love using organic elements to create a great tablescape. Last year my good friend Caitlin created this tablescape and I’ve been in love with it ever since! It’s simple yet so so [...]

Round Dining Tables

Image: Nordic Leaves I have a good friend that’s moving into a studio apartment. It’s a small space that’s downtown with lots of possibilities. One area that is lacking is room for a long dining table. The best solution for this is a round table. You can squeeze chairs around and they don’t take up [...]

3 Things To Love {GREEN}…

Image: Coco Lapine Design When you ask me what my favorite color is, I will instantly tell you that it is green. Now, it’s not your normal, average green. It’s modern shades of green like mint, moss, fern and tea green. There are some amazing shades of green that we haven’t even tapped into yet [...]

Decorating With Color…

I love the look of a clean space with a splash of bright, beautiful color. I’m normally not a purple or pink fan but done right, I’m in love! What are your thoughts on color? [...]

Clean Dining Room…

We are in the middle of spring and usually during this season I get the “get rid of everything” bug. I wouldn’t consider myself a complete minimalist but I am definitely all for down sizing. This dining space is exactly what I love and want for my own space. It has great design elements mixed [...]

Milan Design Week…

I wanted to share with a few new designs straight from Milan Design Week 2014. These La-Dina chairs are pretty much my jam. They have such a delicate approach that isn’t too feminine. The colors are right on point! I am constantly looking for a new accent table for clients. These Torei Family tables are [...]

DIY {Bottles}…

I am a huge fan of spray paint. Always have been, always will be. Mostly because it’s such a quick and easy way to update an item. I found these vintage bottles on eBay. They came in a LOT of 8. I knew right away what I wanted to do with them, and it involved [...]

2 Noteworthy Blogs…

Sometimes I purposely stay offline to make sure that I stay somewhat authentic and original to who I am as a designer. But at the same time, i think it’s super important as a blogger and designer to know what’s happening in the giant world of design. This weekend I spent sometime browsing the internet. [...]

Get The Look {Ebay}…

You’ve seen me do “get the look” posts here on Simply Grove. If you haven’t, it’s where I choose a room and show you how to create the same look choosing specific products. Today I’m putting a spin on it and showing you how to create similar looks using only items found on eBay. I’ve [...]

Pink Inspiration…

Image: Apartment Therapy In honor of Valentines, I thought I would post a little pink love. I’m actually really liking pink, even when it’s not Valentines. It’s easy to incorporate through pillows, art, rugs and other small accessories. You will also see a few pink options, including pale pink and hot pink. Image: Style Files [...]
