simple is beautiful

Green Valley Grill

Monday, April 2, 2012

Yesterday we had brunch with family at one of our favorite restaurants in Greensboro, Green Valley Grill.  I love GVG as much for the food as for the lush garden surrounding it any day of the year.


 We were greeted by this stunning trumpet vine which was even prettier in person.


 Yesterday I noticed these fresh arrangements.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it is Little Gem Magnolia and Althea (Rose of Sharon) with leaves just beginning to emerge.  I loved the simplicity of this so much and plan to re-create this somewhere in our home.  Fresh cuttings add so much to a room and are great for those of you who claim to have a brown thumb ;)


Have you checked out the most recent issue of Adore home?  I was rather taken with this image.  One of my clients recently purchased a set of bamboo chairs from Stuff and we are looking for a fun Chinoiserie fabric to cover the seats.  I'm looking forward to sharing pictures of this project after the dust settles.

  2. My husband's family is from G-boro and I love GVG. My sister-in-law had her bridesmaid's luncheon there. It was so beatiful.

  3. That trumpet vine is really beautiful - I don't know that I've ever seen it before (or at least I didn't know what it was). And I love brunch too - sounds like you had a nice weekend!

  6. Thanks for the shout-out:-) I have to say, I've been won over by the beignets and croque madame at Print Works, but I love, love, love the beautiful courtyard at GVG!

  8. How GORGEOUS is that trumpet vine? I might never have seen anything so pretty! Do you know if it's invasive like wisteria? Wondering if it grows here... Either way, wow!

  9. I found this article for anyone interested in learning more about the trumpet vine. http://www.trumpetvine.org/
    It does say that it is an invasive vine and should not be planted close to your house. Darn it!
