Blogger Style: Simply Grove

March 17, 2014

Confession alert: I’m a voyeur. Well, when it come to interiors and home decor, anyway! Always  have been. Some of my first memories are walking with my mom through our childhood neighbourhood at twilight, covertly peering into lighted windows (from the appropriate sidewalk distance, of course!) and I totally still do the same today. Creepy? Maybe, but that’s what blinds are for, right? We’re all curious about how other people live (aren’t we?) and I think that’s why I started blogging in the first place. I truly love seeing what makes a house a home and, if you’re reading here today, I’d imagine that you do to. I plan on sharing more pics of my own home and homes of friends in the near future but for now I’ll continue to share other spaces that inspire me, like the home of blogger Kirsten Grove:

I especially love seeing stylish family homes that don’t break the bank. Kirsten and her family rent this fantastic space and used some special touches (like temporary wallpaper, how cool!) to make this house a home. Do you have any “cheap tricks” that you use in your own home decor? Please share!  You can see even more photos snapped by Allison Corona of the Grove’s home over at Style Me Pretty. Hope you’re having a great start to your week :)

Ha! I imagine if you polled 100 design/lifestyle bloggers 98 of them like to do the twilight stalking. I know I do!!

fabulous! Creating wonderful homes on a budget doesn’t mean lack of style!

I really like that black and white bold wallpaper. I also got a little tickled at your confession because I love to drive in areas like Lake Drive here in Milwaukee where all the mansions are and see glimpses of their homes because majority of the people keep their curtains wide open with the lights on at night. I will never understand it but it’s fun for me to peer in. lol

Ha! I have to laugh, I think we all try to see a peek into beautiful homes at night. Can’t wait to see your house when it’s all done. You have such great taste!

Sounds like the perfect peering neighbourhood, Miya ;) Agreed on the bold wallpaper too!

Thanks Colleen! And agreed, some of my favourite homes are those decorated on a shoestring budget. So much more creative and full of personality :)

Glad I’m not the only one, Linda! And I bet you’re right about the blogger/house stalker ratio too :)

Glad you enjoyed it, Cheryl! And it’s nice to know I’m not alone in the house creeper department too ;)
