Today’s interior inspiration is a modern Stockholm apartment. It features blue hues and elegant designs. The apartment was designed by Studio Lawahl. The founders, David Walgren and Joanna Laven created an apartment that mixes modern concepts with antique decor. The apartment design was influenced by both Swedish and broadly European styles. Their goal was to blend elegant designs into a functional and livable space.
The kitchen is the standout room in the apartment. It’s a combination of luxurious materials. The original kitchen was closed off and very small. The design firm decided to expand the layout to make it a more sociable place to hang out in the apartment.

I’m Jordyn, Colette’s social media manager for both COCOCOZY and Chirpyest. Today, I’m taking over the COCOCOZY blog. One thing to know about me is that I’m always researching trends in home, fashion, and lifestyle industries. When I see something I love on social media, I always feel the need to research more about that item. Why is it trending? Who started the trend? Is the trend worth it?
I was inspired by this minimalistic and sustainable breakfast nook. Minimalistic interiors are more popular than ever. Designers are removing clutter, utilizing monochromatic color palettes, and exposing natural woods. In 2022, less is more when it comes to interior design. Learn how to get the minimalist style in your home.
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.

Step inside this dreamy primary bathroom in Los Angeles, California. It’s a Parisian-inspired sanctuary that complements the Hollywood Regency-style home. DISC Interiors took on this project to give the space a much-needed facelift. It’s located in the historic neighborhood of Hancock Park. The 100-year-old neighborhood was the home of old Hollywood icons including Nat King Cole, Ava Gardner, and Clarke Cable. People gravitate toward this neighborhood due to the historic architecture and to relive 1920s Los Angeles.
The star of the bathroom is the shower. It has rounded edges for a sleek and modern design. DISC wanted the bathroom to mirror Paris Hotels. The marble detail gives the bathroom a glamourous finish that is suited for a dreamy primary bathroom in Los Angeles.
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.
Since it’s almost summer, I figured it was a good idea to share some summery interior inspiration. Dive into this beautiful primary bedroom. It’s designed by Los Angeles designer, Justina Blakeney. She is known for her vibrant artwork and color palettes. Justina is also the founder of the home décor brand, Jungalow®. Take a look at her beautiful blue limewashed primary bedroom that looks like an ocean dream. It features vintage decor and Mediterranean details.
Today’s interior inspiration is all about the perfect summer home. I discovered it last week while waiting at the airport. You all know I love doors. It’s one of my weaknesses in architectural design. And this door is blue! So I had to take a look inside this home. I’m happy I did!
The Florida residence was designed by Jake Arnold. He helped design this home for a Palm Beach hotel developer. The exterior features stucco-clad and a stepped roof. The owner wanted it to mimic Bermudian architecture. I would never want to leave this gorgeous pad. See more rooms below.
Did you know Brooklyn is larger than Manhattan? In fact, it’s three times bigger than Manhattan. I just learned this and my mind is blown. Speaking of Brooklyn, interior designer Jenna Chused renovated her spacious Brooklyn apartment. She’s the designer behind the firm Chused & Co. Her apartment is elegant and full of natural light. Her design style is unique, which is why I thought I share it with all of you.
One of the stand-out rooms in this spacious Brooklyn apartment is the kitchen. What initially looks like another white kitchen is actually incredibly unique. Chused mixes textures and color palettes that you don’t normally see in a NY kitchen.
Hues of blue are never boring. Celebrity interior designer, Sheila Bridges, has incorporated different colors in her projects for years. One of my favorite things about her designs is the way she plays around with prints and patterns. I noticed while browsing her portfolio is her love for the color blue. Almost all of her projects have at least one room with color. And they never look the same. Depending on the style you are going for, blue can set the tone and elevate your space. Here are some of my favorite blue rooms by Bridges below!
The photo above is her kitchen from her Harlem project. It features fun and custom patterns that compliment the light blue color. She loves to work with rich colors. Her design aesthetic is using Harlem toile and styling it with something unexpected.
Is pink the new gray in interior design? Back in June, I did a post about pink interiors. Now it’s March and I’m seeing a rise of pink hues on my Instagram feed. It’s not everyone’s go-to color when decorating their home. However, pink can transform a space in various ways. Use lighter hues for a more elegant and chic look. If you want something rich and sophisticated, then go for a deep pink/reddish hue.
The room above was designed by my friends @bexmarie + @raskindphoto of Renouveau Hom. They renovated a Spanish-style home in Leimert Park. The home is full of life with vibrant patterns and colors. It’s a fun home to explore because it’s unlike anything you’ve seen in Los Angeles. The house feels playful and whimsical without being overwhelming. The pink bathroom is one of my favorite rooms in the house. The combination of different pink tones and rose gold fixtures makes for the perfect bathroom design.
Perfecting the minimalist decor look is hard. I’ve redecorated my living room a handful of times. Trying to find the right balance and get the minimalistic style is a challenge. Especially, if you’re not exactly sure what you need and don’t need. The key is finding the right decor that compliments your space. Take a step back and look at the room that you want to redesign. What can you keep? What can you remove? Minimalism is about decorating with the bare essentials. Get rid of your clutter. Start with a fresh eye to find the true star of your room. Is it your fireplace? Is it your window? Design your room around your favorite pieces. Let the furniture be the stars of your living room.

There’s nothing that feels more like spring than a table full of fresh flowers, earthy tones, and linen fabrics beautifully arranged on an outdoor table. The perk of having my own courtyard is being able to throw lavish spring dinner parties. And an added bonus is the great weather in California. I love sitting down and brainstorming table concepts and ideas. If you’re feeling ready to start hosting again then this guide of spring table decor is for you. I’ve gathered everything from tablecloths to serveware to help you throw the perfect spring dinner party at your home.
I saw this bathroom on Instagram. The tub is set in a nook. It’s like your own sanctuary within your bathroom. Interior Designers from Roman and Williams Guild, Stephen Alesch, and Robin Standefer, designed this bathroom for their Brooklyn home. It features nature-like wallpaper that is also used in their living room. Its tree branches and floral details make the home feel enchanting. It almost feels like you’re in a dreamy forest. However, the bathroom is the true star of their home. From the black tub to the brass fixtures, it’s a beautiful design.
Say goodbye to warm tones and bright colors in 2021. Black interiors are taking over the interior design world. Everyone has their own design style. Some people don’t like the all-white kitchen trend. Or the rustic neutral farmhouse looks that we’ve been seeing all over the internet. Personally, I have found myself steering away from bright white rooms. I’m not saying that I’m going to be painting my walls charcoal tomorrow. However, there is something that makes me go “WOW” when I see a dramatic black room.
Black is classic. Although, most people stay away from it when they’re decorating their home. It can change the tone of a room from playful to sophisticated. While on a deep dive, I discovered beautiful dark rooms that I think you all should see.
Former Miss Universe and now Fashion influencer, Olivia Culpo, is showing off her glamourous pad in Encino. After years of living in a small apartment, she finally made the move to a spacious 5,000 square foot sanctuary. Culpo needed a home that was both comfortable and calming. With the help of interior designer Jess Diab, they found the perfect balance of glamour and chic within this space. The decorating process was slow because of the pandemic. The duo approached each room strategically. They added vintage and contemporary pieces. Culpo was inspired by French architecture. Her home is full of textured furniture and decor with personal touches.
The photo above is of her walk-in closet. Her fashion is on full display. You can spot her crowns from her Miss USA and Miss Universe wins.
Brigette Romanek, the owner of Romanek Design Studio, gave an inside look at her eclectic Mediterranean-style home in Laurel Canyon. It’s bright and airy but has Romanek’s vibrant touch throughout the home. It features whimsical art, clean lines, and luxurious decor. What’s even more interesting about this home is that it was rumored to be owned by Houdini in the 1920s.
Romanek’s passion for design started when she decorated homes for her family and close friends. She realized her love for interior design which eventually led her to open her very own studio. Her style is a combination of modern and vintage designs. She is playful with her creations, but everything always has a purpose.
