Which is not quite picture perfect YET but as soon as it is you will get the full before and after experience and we will give them a shout out again. In the mean time, the image above is from another project of theirs. But besides that, we want to make it very clear that we are IN LOVE with our house. Matt Younger and Belle Grove Homes took a 1950's 1 story bungalow and transformed it into a 2 story modern-meets-traditional home with a front porch and fireplace that weren't there before. All in under 5 months. It is better than we expected and we can't thank Matt and everyone at Belle Grove Homes enough for all their hard work and attention to detail that has literally given us not only our dream home but also our first home as a married couple. So thank you.

Simply Wesley is a full service interior design firm located in Annapolis, MD. Owner Wesley Thompson has been in the design business for over ten years and has had the pleasure of designing homes and building relationships in the Baltimore/Annapolis area, as well as DC and Virginia. Her very collaborative and hands-on approach to design allows her to hone in on clients’ needs and wants on projects large and small. From working with architects and builders, AutoCAD design, and selections of furnishings, fabric, and lighting, the scope is broad. Wesley brings a tremendous amount of passion and energy to each project, making the process seamless and fun.
As an Annapolitan, I have known Wesley for a while now and even more so since she took over my old residence, which happens to be a renovated firehouse. She immediately took the space from a masculine party-style house (it has a rooftop bar- don't judge!) to a cozy, colorful home. It has some awkward layouts and dark spaces that she managed to completely brighten and enthusiastically took the challenge. Rooms that were once uninviting are now welcoming. Spaces that were awkward now feel completely natural. Wesley has a talent that the rest of us dream of.
