Happy Habitat Blanket…

We have a plethora of throw blanket options at my house. Furry blankets, soft blankets, little blankets…many blankets. My most recent blanket to join this massive collection is this gorgeous Happy Habitat blanket by Karrie Kaneda. It is my all time favorite! The quality is undeniable. It’s the perfect snuggle blanket yet still looks beyond [...]

Styled Buffet…

I put some birds on my walls the other day. While shopping at one of my local antique shops, I found these cute bird prints that were originally a calendar. I attached them to the wall with a simple strip of washi tape. It was an easy way to add some great art! Most everything [...]

Share the Season…

Fall is here and cold weather is upon us. Well, most of us anyways. In my home, I don’t necessarily decorate with autumn tones, like red, burnt orange and brown. Instead, I focus on textures (fur, cable knit, wool) and dark tones (gray, black, chocolate brown) in my accessories  to create a fun, moody space. [...]

Last years tablescape…

I am so excited to share with you a glimpse into my Thanksgiving tablescape from last year. It is always fun to look back and get inspired by projects you have done in the past. It is hands down one of my favorite tables I have ever done. Yellow mums, polka dots, and gold accents [...]

SG Project {living space update}…

There are some little changes happening in the Simply Grove household. With fall here, I wanted to add some cozy details. Besides my mini pumpkins proving fall has come, I have added a lamp, throw, and candle all from Pottery Barn. The Photographer’s Task Table Lamp has been quite a hit in my household. My [...]

Update {who left the lights on}…

I recently installed Lutron’s Maestro Occupancy/Vacancy Sensing C·L Dimmer in our home’s entryway. If you missed the fun video, see it here. I wanted to give you an update on the dimmer and my post installation thoughts. First, the dimmer was very easy to install, if I can do it- you can! Second, it has been beneficial to [...]

White Floor Thoughts…

Yesterday I Instagrammed this picture from our previous home. We moved from this home to our existing home almost 3 years ago. A lot has happened in 3 years including my aesthetic changing and maturing a bit. One element that I do miss and sincerely loved were my white floors in this space. Yes, they [...]

Red…

I don’t use a lot of red in my house but when I saw these flowers in my garden, I needed to display them quickly in my home! I love how they look with the patterned red pillow on my sofa. Are you a fan of red in your interior decor?

Lately on Instagram…

Lately on Instagram: I was in Seattle earlier this week finishing up some projects. One project that I can’t wait to show you is simple, clean design. Here’s a sneak peek of the bedroom. While in Seattle, my Aunt and I visited a Penthouse that Barbara Barry designed. She used lots of color throughout the [...]

And because our bedroom is a favorite spot for the whole family, this feature includes my gorgeous kids and my extra hot hubby. See the entire feature here. I’ll be [...]

My Office Redo…

Recently I joined forces with Hayneedle.com to do a little update on my office. I’m excited to say that it’s finally completed! You can see more and read more here.      

DIY {Mirror}…

When I started re-doing my office, I had a plan of action for my baroque mirror. I almost gave it away, just because I’m a little over this trend. But after seeing Martha Stewart’s new project paints, I knew that this mirror needed a little copper pick me up. I used the metallic glaze in copper [...]

Let’s Chat…

Hi friends. I updated my portfolio a bit and will be updating it more as the weeks follow. I feel like I have pictures scattered all over my computer, flickr, my blog and everywhere else except for displayed where they should be. Better late than never, right??! On another note, I wanted to give a [...]

I found some great decor objects yesterday while thrifting, including that awesome gold plated boat and the woven tray. The [...]

Blanket…

Christmas came really early for me this week. I was doing the happy dance upon receiving the Faribault Virgin Wool Lodge Blanket from Kaufmann Mercantile. This picture of my bedroom does no justice for how beautiful and BIG the blanket is. I’m pretty excited to be re-doing my bedroom and this blanket along with other new bedding [...]
