Hi everyone! Kirsten from Simply Grove
here, filling in for Trina as she travels the world!:) I’m a huge LaLa Lovely fan so of course it is an honor to be guest posting for Trina!
When it comes to designing your dining room or even just simple decor, grey chairs are a perfect way to go. They are neutral enough to match a style of decor and are just a really good staple piece. If you are a vintage lover, a rusty grey medal base would be great.
Maybe you are one who likes the modern look. Find a chair with a sleek and minimalistic look. These Hay chairs are such a striking choice. Pair them with a wooden dining table for an eclectic look.
However, if you are one that doesn’t know what kind of chair would look great in your space, a simple grey choice with a wood base can make for an easy decision. They are stylish to the eye and will certainly wow your guests.
In the end, grey chairs are always a nice design choice, at least in my book.

Now, if you don’t know, over on Apartment 34 we have a thing for neutrals, and we’re especially smitten over anything white. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite white kitchens that all had a little something extra: black! Adding a few pops of black and white patterned towels or black and white stoneware is a great way to mix up an over saturated white kitchen while still keeping it primarily monochromatic and interesting.
1// 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6
The great thing about adding some black and white accessories to your kitchen is that they go with any color palette that you already have or might decide to change it to in the future. It’s not a trendy color palette, so you don’t have to worry about buying out a whole store in fear that the color won’t be back next season. It’s timeless and classic and looks great in any kitchen. I hope you will enjoy some of these modern and fun updates in your own kitchen and you can check out more installments of Tasty Tuesday over on Apartment 34, where style lives happily ever after! Thanks for having me!

LONDON! i didn’t want to make it so obvious with an obvious landmark, that is. and, really, because my eyes are going to be looking here and there and everywhere to seek out this type of inspiration. the last time i was in england i was totally mesmerized by all of the colored doors and went home and painted my front door a bright color.
anyhow, i’m here attending a conference and then taking a few days to visit my english bestie on the south coast. i’ve left my computer at home and plan to have a personal retreat of sorts. i can’t wait to fill you in when i return.
you can follow along on instagram and i also have some really great posts lined up right here!

hi lovelies. i’m on an adventure today. one that entails my passport. as these things are usually planned out way in advance this was pretty last minute. i LOVE travel, as it’s always so exciting, but it can make me a wee bit nervous too (so say a prayer).
pop back in tomorrow to see where in the world i’ve landed (i kind of just felt like a cross between carmen sandiego – my favorite childhood computer game – and matt lauer when i said that – ha).
and since we are talking travel….
the last place i traveled to
my tips for traveling with kids
and my travel quirks (do you have any?)

sometimes the messier the better? yes? i love a space that looks worked in. especially when there is creative work involved. my eyes find no offense or annoyance in this kind of chaos. i’m only left with curiosity and interest. i’d like nothing more than to comb over every little bit of something or anything in this space. i’m certain there are a lot of stories hidden in the papers, the paint and the piles.
do you think you your papers or piles say anything about you?
