One of my favorite spots in my home is the upper patio. I gave it a makeover in 2021 after finally having it fixed. It was covered for over a year due to a leak. Now that the one-year anniversary passed, I figured it was a good time for a review of my Outer furniture.
I received three pieces of furniture from Outer including a sectional and two armchairs. My upper patio is a large area so I decided to space out the pieces. The armchairs sat in one corner and the sectional was styled in the opposite corner. Far apart for it to not be too crowded, but close enough for cozy conversations with friends.

On my Instagram, I recently talked about redecorating my outdoor courtyard. I always host dinner parties for friends and family. I love to freshen up the space to give people something to talk about. I’m not doing any drastic changes. My plan is to keep it simple just by swapping out a few plants and accessories.
One of the challenges when it comes to decorating an outdoor space is making sure your outdoor decor is cohesive with your interior decor. It’s important to maintain the flow of your home from indoor to outdoor. Outdoor accessories are an easy trick to make your home look like a professionally styled home. It’s all about the placement of your decor!
The theme for this summer is more is more! Yes, for all of you minimalists out there this will be a hard adjustment. You might not be ready to throw loud wallpaper on your walls. That’s why the COCOCOZY team researched the summer home decor trends for 2021. This summer is all about textured furniture and vibrant patterns. Host the most colorful dinner party or transform your living room into a room that is inspired. We’ve spent a year in lockdown. Why not bring some vibrance back into our lives?

I finally did it! This outdoor patio makeover is something I’ve been meaning to get to for a long time. My upper patio was in need of a transformation. Thanks to Outer, this space has never looked better! I’m in love with their armchairs that have an awesome self covering feature to help protect the outdoor pillows. The chairs are so comfortable and look great with my COCOCOZY rug. Now my outdoor patio is a great place to relax or even work if I’m in need of a change of scenery.
Last month, I took a trip to East Hampton to visit my bff Anne and her family. Read my previous post about Anne’s home here. Anne and her husband John recently redid their entire backyard and turned it into a stunning outdoor living space. It was designed with relaxing and entertaining in mind. I wish I could’ve stayed longer! Early one morning, I snapped some amazing photos of their oasis.
I am officially picking my favorite season of the year: Fall. I just love this weather!
The idea that we are getting closer to the end of the year and cooler days are creeping up always makes me so happy and energized. For me, fall is usually full of excitement and activities like seeing friends and family, and its the time of year I most look forward to.
Decisions, decisions! As you know, we have been hard at work on the COCOCOZY Design House. Today, it’s all about two main exterior hardscape surfaces — the front walkway and back balcony.
Curb appeal is everything when designing a house… especially one that is going on sale! Sometimes a book is judged by its cover. Lucky for me, the facade of this house is already so amazing — my main goal is not to mess it up! The Cement Tile Shop has come on as a partner to help me in that effort.
The photo (above) is what I’m using as my main inspiration for this part of the project. Now, before I go any further, I just want to note that this house is a work in progress. Please read using your imagination for what the space will look like. And don’t worry, I will show you all the final result as soon as I can!
Who said garage doors have to be boring?
I recently spotted a stunning black garage on bettershelter’s Instagram page (pictured above), and was immediately inspired by how much character a simple remodel can add to a home.
