Grace Bonney, a celebrated author, blogger, and entrepreneur, is best known for her popular interior-decor site, Design*Sponge, which she started back in 2004.
Meanwhile, even her literary work- The Company of Women, a book that highlights more than 100 stories about women entrepreneurs who won over adversity in many different ways, and a book on DIY interior design, Design*Sponge at Home, are considered powerful enough to bring positive influence on its reader.

Although there is not much to tell about her family, it is evident from her social media posts that she loves and respects her parents to a greater extent.
Also, she acquired the good-looking genes from her parents, who celebrated their 39th year of being together on 16th October 2015.
“He will always be the coolest and most talented guy I know”- captioned Grace to the beautiful self-portrait of her father when he was 16.
On Coming Out As Lesbian
It was the fear of completely losing her family and friends that kept her away from having “that discussion.”
But then, once she turned thirty, she realized that she had wasted enough. So, she first went to her father, and he was all supportive of her,
I don’t really care who you love. I just want you to be happy, and you seem really miserable.
And, her mother was also "shockingly" okay with her daughter’s truth.
Assuring Grace that everything would eventually fall into its place, they even met her girlfriend.
Having religious friends, she thought, “it wouldn't go over well.” She never thought her post coming out years would be this incredible.
Beautiful Six Years Of Wedding
Six years ago, on the 2nd of November 2013, Grace tied the knot with Julia Turshen, a bestselling author and professional cook!

And, today, Grace cannot stop gushing about her favorite person on earth-
There is no one I’d rather start and end every day with, eat every meal with, dance around the kitchen with or be a giant goofball with. I’ve known since the moment I met (her) that I LOVED her.

And, as a “HUGE adoption supporter,” it is no surprise that Grace decided on adopting Winky, the dog with her partner a few years prior.
Divorce With Husband
Back in 2011, Grace and her ex-husband, Aaron Coles, quietly signed their divorce papers.
Even though they lived their married life in the spotlight, they did not publicly talk about their split.
At least not until more than a year later in June 2013, when eloquently announced over an “A Personal Note” in her blog that she is a lesbian.
