Doing a guest room makeover has been on my list of things to do for weeks! I recently was approached to do an Instastories partnership with Home Depot for a bedroom makeover. I love the final result so much, I decided to blog about it. This post is not a sponsored post.

This Tudor House Tour is a spectacular home in LA. I love hearing about renovations and bringing old homes back to life which is exactly what happened to this home. The original idea was to re-do this home back to its original glory but after some work, a lot of structural issues came up. They got a bit more than they bargained for but were able to really customize this space to their needs. The final design turned out amazing!
I love this light and refreshing bedroom decor by Amanda Barnes Interior Design and photographed by Alyssa Rosenheck. Waking up in this space would be so rejuvenating. I really favor a nice simple refreshing bedroom like this one for making the waking up process so much better. This well edited and simple room definitely proves less is more. The added character of the natural tone Restoration Hardware Caned Bed and the pinstripe throw with the pom poms are the the perfect combination to the faded blue rug. See more details below!

The ultimate bedroom inspiration is turning your space into a personal sanctuary. A space that feels calming, inspiring, and recharges you. I love crafting bedrooms and believe it’s an art of its own. Deciding on how to decorate a bedroom is a very personal choice but there are a few great guidelines to follow. Read on to view some incredible spaces and get inspiration!
Mattress shopping is no joke. It’s incredibly time-consuming to decide your list of needs, research brands, and ultimately, find what you want in your price range. Thanks to online shopping it’s much easier to compare and faster to find the best mattress. A lot of these companies will deliver to your door and you have plenty of time to try it out – with a guaranteed refund if you don’t love it.
A perfectly designed NYC apartment is mysterious and exciting. The idea of living in such a populated area and making the most of out what space you can afford is mind-boggling. There are such talented interior designers in NYC that I had an amazing time just exploring images of their work. While not all apartments in NYC are this glamorous, I can’t help but fantasize about these designs. From huge lofts to Parisian chic here are some of my favorites.
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.
Work on the COCOCOZY Design House continues.
Next step — lighting! This has been THE single most difficult design decision for this house by far. Lucky for me, Lamps Plus came on board to help me solve the dilemma. As one of our fabulous anchor partners in the COCOCOZY Design House project, Lamps Plus offered to give me lighting for all areas. Wait, what? All rooms and outdoor! Again, what?! All lighting! Yes.
Lamps Plus does have some brands they make themselves like Possini, Franklin Ironworks, 360 Lighting, John Timberland, and a few more… but in addition to those, they carry tens and tens of thousands of lights from other brands. I whittled down my selection after several visits to two different Lamps Plus stores here in Los Angeles. This was a real exercise in decision making!
Spring days call for Spring Gray!
I keep spotting rooms, architecture, and home accessories with gray accents — and I just love how the typically-drab color is being used to make other colors (including white!) pop.
Incorporating gray can keep your space sleek, neutral, and of course, oh-so cozy!

Wow, I cannot believe I just said that! The beginning of this year is just flying by. I hope you all are having a wonderful start to 2018!
To start off the spring, I’ve been thinking about how to incorporate metal bed frames in various ways — so I’ve collected some of my favorites for inspiration!
Check out the ultimate guide to metal beds (below)!
Slowly but surely my room is coming together!
As you probably have experienced, picking out a rug is truly a process! For my bright master bedroom, I went back and forth between having a rug… having a colorful rug… or having no rug at all! Ultimately I decided on this muted grey COCOCOZY ring rug — and I couldn’t be happier!
I know, I know — straying away from a Moroccan or vintage worn Persian style rug is a design risk, but I’m choosing to step outside the box! This is me in 2018!
Welcome to my guest bedroom!
I absolutely love having a special place for my visitors to stay — and I want to make sure they feel right at home while in town!
My intention was to create a warm and inviting room by having attention to detail but ultimately keeping things simple. So far I’ve gotten the stamp of approval from my mother and best friend — so that’s how I know the transformation was a success!
I have been off the blogging grid for weeks! Now I am back. Basically, I have been running around getting settled in my house and having lots and lots of guests. It has been so much fun. After months and months of not having a place, it is so nice to settle in my lovely Spanish style home here in Beverly Hills (during my house hunt, a very stylish friend of mine at work said he imagined me living in Beverly Hills…he dreamed it and I made it happen!!).
Thanks to my sweet friend Hilde Leiaghat, owner of chic bedding line Pom Pom at Home, my master bedroom is becoming a serene dream. Overall, the decor for the room is still a work in progress. The bed, however, is fully and beautifully decked out with stunning linen bedding. Here’s how I got the bed of my dreams…
There is something so charming about an attic bedroom. A room nestled into the top floor of a home under a pitched ceiling and the beams and rafters of the roof can be perfection. I found these first few pictures on the blog Adventures in Cooking. Blogger Eva Kosmas chronicled the before and after makeover of her master bedroom in her Pacific Northwest home. The result is a fresh bright room that marries good modern style with fresh rustic charm. Love this room and 7 other cozy bedroom attic lofts in this post!
Happy Monday! I am back from my week long stay in the Dominican Republic with my good friends from New York and SFJ came out from L.A.. It was such a lovely dreamy spring break. If you have been following along in instagram (@cococozy) or Snapchat (cococozyblog), you have seen the play by play of my travels and stay at the Playa Grande Beach Club, a boutique hotel in the Dominican Republic. At this resort, there homes that are privately owned and there are also beautiful rentable bungalows. My best of friend AM and her hubby JE happen to own one of the homes there so I am a very lucky recipient of their hospitality!
Anyhooo, one day while everyone was out at the pool (all kids and adults), I snuck inside AM’s island house and had a field day taking photos. One of the delightful rooms is upstairs…it is a fanciful bohemian bedroom – a twin room with an island style twist.
