"Grounded to our roots. Inspired by your story".
- Vanessa & Jordan Isaacs
THE ORANGE GROVE STORY
It all started with an orange grove. An orange grove Vanessa admired her entire childhood that kept her grounded to her roots. Vanessa & Jordan Isaacs lived a couple of miles from one another nearly their entire lives without them knowing. Their consistency of admiration for Florida, later on, lead the native couple to meet at a friend's gathering. The rest is history. Homebodies at heart, over the years they noticed cookie-cutter homes popping up predominantly in their hometown of Northern Tampa. Their love for architecture & traditional aesthetics inspired them to want to help change the direction of stock real estate. With Vanessa's interior design education and Jordan's project management experience, in 2020, they decided to launch their interior design studio with one directive in mind "Your home should tell a story & we want to tell it." Preserving character & broadcasting authenticity is the thriving aspect of this central Florida firm. The growing ventures of OGD have led to publications with viewers across the globe and evolved into more than an interior design studio but a lifestyle blog and a future store filled with curated items to inspire everyday living.
