About Us

Suite 52 Living strives to bring beauty to Modesto and the surrounding region. Owned and operated by sisters Sarah and Emma Grover, the Grovers purchased the store and design studio in 2007. Originally started by Renee Brekke and Linda Tell in 1991 under the name Portico Home & Garden, Suite 52 has withstood economic downturns emerging as a vibrant home décor staple for the Central Valley.

In 2016, Suite 52 had the opportunity to re-locate to a larger space in McHenry Village where we could expand our offering including more space for our always popular Christmas display. With a constant evolution of products, we work to provide our customers with the highest quality items that are both interesting and fun while always providing the personal attention our customers have come to expect.

Whether you are visiting us to find the ideal gift for a friend, coming to us for our outstanding design services, looking for the perfect accent piece for your home, or in search of one of our stunning custom florals, Suite 52 is the place for you. Our staff will work with you to make sure you receive the unparalleled service we always strive to provide.

At the end of the day Suite 52’s enduring goal remains to make every home, office and space thrive for your life.


Our community is a better place for the hard work of many good people. We hope you will consider supporting the worthy causes below that have captured our hearts.
