Meet Molly & Matt

A designer and an engineer who can’t help but start *another* project. “The Place with Grace” began as a, sort of, diary to document the improvements we were making on our first home together in 2018. Home projects* have always been a creative escape from our full-time roles – something to dream about, challenge us and take pride in. Now, sharing that journey with you has become a passion for us.

*No project takes place without the heedful eyes of our two beloved pups and project managers, Piper Miller & Juniper (Junie) Bea.

Happy to be home

It’s a feeling we never want to shake, so we’re not wasting any time. While we craft a home that brings us joy and surrounds us with our creature comforts, we’re taking you along for the ride – every DIY project, thrifting score, lesson learned and moment celebrated. We hope you’ll find inspiration along the way to make a home you love as much as we love ours. Follow along!

“It’s about recognizing the beauty in the perfectly imperfect, and understanding that authentic loveliness can be found in many surprising places.”
