Our lives can be stressful, but that doesn’t mean our homes have to be too. Take a look inside this Los Angeles home that is full of earthy interiors. The home features muted tones, natural materials, and rich textures. Interior designer, M. Elle Design, created a relaxed sanctuary for her clients. If you look closely, you’ll notice that most of the walls are bare. She wanted her client’s art pieces to be the stars of each room. It gives the home a gallery-like feel to it. Tour a few of the COCOCOZY team’s favorite rooms.
The room above is a beautiful sunroom. It’s a combination of neutral and warm tones that will help brighten your mornings. The design team added a playful twist by adding a rose gold Oscar Pendant from RW Guild.

How is it already the middle of July? This summer is going by way too fast. So it’s time to finally update your outdoor patio. I’m sure most of you have already been spending time outdoors. I always love a fun outdoor dinner party during the summer. So if you’re looking for some inspiration to update your outdoor patio then this blog is for you. I browsed different brands and found some must-have outdoor decor that I have in my cart right now. See my selection below!
So over bold colors? The good news is that muted tones in kitchens are trending. Designers are investing in calming blues and greens for cabinetry. The most popular muted tone is gray as most of you already know. So if you’re looking for something more unique try mixing and matching muted tones for a charming twist.
This kitchen was designed by Mariah O’Brien Interiors and Tanya Saban. It features taupe-colored cabinetry and matching plaster walls for a monochromatic look. The color might even be considered greige. It feels spacious but has a warm and cozy atmosphere due to the wood beam ceilings. I thought it was worth the share for those who are looking for neutral kitchen inspiration.

White marble bathrooms are the go-to for modern designs. The clean lines and natural color palette make any space look timeless. This bathroom has a vintage twist that gives it a fresh look. Interior design firm, Zio and Sons, transformed a compact Catskill bathroom into a modern luxurious primary bath. It features a large shower with marble subway tiles that have grey veining. They accessorized the space with gold fixtures to add some glamour. It was important that they maintained the charm of the Catskills with a modern facelift.
Interior designers are swapping out the everyday kitchen chairs with built-in banquette seating. Today, more people rather have stylish informal dining areas for their families to enjoy. I mean…how often do you eat at your formal dining table? Most people only use their dining room for holidays and gatherings. My kitchen is small and doesn’t have any space for a dining table. However, if you have the space then there’s no need for a formal dining room. So now with the rise of modern banquette seating, will formal dining rooms become obsolete?
The breakfast nook above is designed by Jkath Design. The space has large steel windows which allow for an abundance of natural light. The custom seating creates a cozy vibe and complements the wooden beam ceiling for a rustic look.
The ideal lakeside home is full of natural light, ample space for entertaining, and original charm. This Dallas home has all of that and more. Interior designer, Chad Dorsey, renovated this 6,500-square-foot lakeside paradise for his clients. The stand-out room is the galley kitchen which features wall-to-ceiling windows that flood the room.
The original kitchen was small and not very functional for Dorsey’s clients. Dorsey removed the walls and other enclosed spaces to expand the kitchen into a lavish hangout spot that flows right into the breakfast area. The goal of the renovation was to integrate modern design without minimizing the original charm of the lakeside home.

Luxurious kitchens don’t need to be grand spaces. You can find beauty in small spaces too. This elegant kitchen was designed by Zoe Feldman Design. She gave this space a facelift by adding navy blue cabinets and accessorizing with gold hardware. My favorite element in the flooring. It complements the beautiful blue hue of the cabinets.
A tiny space can have a big impact on the design of your home. Feldman modernized the kitchen with Calcutta marble countertops and backsplash. To prevent the room from looking too cluttered she added open shelving.

Get in the summer spirit with bold colors and decor made of natural materials. Your home exterior should reflect your personal style and compliment the interior of your home.
