So excited to share a few photos of the completed COCOCOZY Design House! Today, was so excited that House Beautiful decided to do an exclusive house tour of this remodel project I have been working on for almost 10 months. Last year, I bought the house and started remodeling it in April. Now, here it is, a 1930 classic Spanish Colonial Revival nestled in the hills of Los Angeles in an enclave called View Park.

Time for a little update on the master bathroom at the COCOCOZY Design House. It feels like just yesterday the bathroom design started and we’re already finishing up. Now that we are almost complete with the baths, time for a little sneak peek!
Remember what the bathrooms used to look like? Every bathroom at the COCOCOZY Design House looks great now with all of the TOTO plumbing fixtures. Bright and clean, these bathrooms are coming together great and are giving me serious bathroom envy. TOTO provided all of the amazing sinks, faucets, shower and bath hardware, tubs and toilets for the Design House.
Time for some kitchen planning!
The cabinets have been ordered, appliances have been selected, and now I am thinking about counters. I am super duper lucky to have another wonderful company on board to provide product for the COCOCOZY Design House. Caesarstone has generously agreed to supply all of the countertop material for the kitchen and the baths.
I had Caesarstone counters in my first house — you all may remember that tiny little cottage in the Hollywood Hills. Now for my first COCOCOZY Design House, I went to Caesarstone as my first choice for counters!

The planning and renovation phase of the COCOCOZY Design House is in full swing!
As you know, I’m currently in the midst of transforming a beautiful 1860-square-foot Spanish style home in View Park LA (my first ever design house!) — and we’ve meticulously selected a few partners to work with us by providing product.
I was so thrilled when TOTO came on board to supply all bath and plumbing fixtures for the 4 new bathrooms we are creating in the Design House. You heard me… EVERYTHING! That means sinks, faucets, shower heads, toilets, gorgeous tubs, accessories, and all of the fittings and valves. WOW!!
We’ve talked about dreamy freestanding tubs before, but now I want to chat about two-toned clawfoot tubs!
I just bought a vintage clawfoot tub for my latest design project — and like most of my finds, it’s in great shape but needs just a bit of refurbishing.
Full disclosure, I never in my life thought I would want a clawfoot tub… it seemed a little too quaint for me. Never say never, I guess, because now I’m obsessed with the idea of having a two-toned clawfoot bathtub — black and white in particular.
Below I’ve rounded up some of my favorite photos of the trend for inspiration!
Stressful times call for a soothing bath. When it comes to home design, I adore freestanding bathtubs. As a rule, I always try to section out time during my busy day to practice self-care — whatever that looks like depending on my schedule. I am NOT a bath girl, but the other day I was inspired to run a warm bath… only to find out that I don’t have a stopper in my bathtub! That should show you how rare it is for me to take a relaxing soak! Note to self (and my Amazon account): purchase a bathtub stopper!
Anyway, I recently visited a home remodel site with a friend of mine and there was an old tub. I adore freestanding bathtubs in new construction. It was a cast iron clawfoot tub. After asking my Instagram followers whether or not the freestanding tub should be salvaged or ditched, most said to keep it!
I think that’s spot on… there’s something so romantic, soothing, and comforting about a good old fashioned (and good looking!) stand-out stand-alone tub.
I’ve gathered some of my favorite freestanding tubs for inspiration (below)!
Love love love the black vanity in this custom Moroccan inspired bath in…California? International style travels elegantly to a Los Angeles home in the hills from designer Betsy Burnham. The black vanity with the star molding detail and white knobs and pulls, white quartz counter tops, the antiqued over sized mirror, simple sconces and a black and white tile floor equal perfection. Take a look and let me know what you think?
This weekend I spent house hunting again. Last week, I made an offer on another house! It was between me and one other person. Our offers were almost identical I was told…but she was a chef and wrote a letter about wanting to plant an herb garden. The owner of that house had wanted to plant an herb garden so he related to her letter! Rats. It was a beautiful little bungalow in Beverly Hills. I will have to write a note about an herb garden next time.
Anyhoo, on this house hunt, I have seen all kinds of houses – some finished and others not. The other day, I happened upon this house in Hollywood…
