North County Décor Boutique Stays True to Roots and Flourishes
This week Cali Bamboo sends a shout out to a local favorite. Grounded furniture in Encinitas has been serving North County and all of San Diego for over a decade. We caught up with Juli Risner, Grounded’s owner and curator extraordinaire. Julie runs the 4,000+ sqft retail space and has a keen eye for design personally selecting many of the pieces available on shopgrounded.com and in-store. Juli’s husband Richard is a landscape architect and together they form a design/décor dynamic duo serving a variety of clients’ redesigned or remodeled abodes both inside and out.
On our most recent visit to Grounded, we borrowed a few pieces for our Cali Vinyl flooring photoshoot. Thank you to Juli and Grounded for everything, we’ve already got our eye on a few other pieces for our next shoot!
