12 Days Before Christmas: Day 8 with Simply Grove

Over the next 12 days leading up to Christmas I have invited friends and people I am inspired by to share a few words. Today is Day 8.


Kirsten is an Interior Decorator living in Boise, Idaho and author of design blog Simply Grove. Simply Grove is another one of the first blogs I started reading and Kirsten is an absolute gem.


It is impossible to not be inspired when visiting Simply Grove from Kirsten's home projects to the beautiful interiors and decorating projects that she writes about. There is lots there to spark off a creative idea or two.

I asked Kirsten:

How will you be decorating your home for the holiday season?

This year, I went very family friendly whimsical. A few years ago, my Uncle gave me a collection of wooden ornaments from Holland.

There are little children, soldiers, angels and drummer boys represented. I added some homemade and fabric ornaments with the wooden ornaments on my tree.


The mantel is a woodland treat, complete with animals, mini trees, white village buildings and white ceramics.


I have splashes of red and white around the house as well as handmade snow globes that my daughter and I DIY'd. (Ikea has the cutest red and white holiday candles right now! Pictured) I love traditional elements mixed in with modern and whimsical. It creates such a fun family scene!

I have a few ideas in the works right now. One involving wallpaper!!!

Kirsten, thank you so much for sharing with us!
