It truly is the little things that make life happy.
Every morning when I wake up, walk down the stairs and see this morning light in my living room, I am filled with such great joy! It’s easy to start the day with a positive mind when greeted with such a cheerful and bright glow.
The past few years have been a roller coaster for me (to say the least) — and I’m feeling extremely grateful to have found this Spanish style Beverly Hills house after making the difficult decision to sell my tiny little cottage in the Hollywood Hills.
The radiance in this special spot of my “home for now” reminds me to embrace all the newness that comes with this next chapter!
Having a space in your home that instantly gives you happiness is key. I encourage you to find a spot — ANY spot — within a few steps of you as you wake up that will lift you up as you start your day. Clean up a corner, put a few simple things in it that you love, and voilá… your literal happy place!
But first, coffee… in this nook! I love these refurbished flea market chairs paired with this fun side table from Serena & Lily. You can shop it by clicking here.
The big window in the blue nook creates a wonderful shadow on the floor. I crave this time of day because of it!
This painting by Brian Wills brings such a nice pop of color to the room. I love how it compliments the blue-greens in the COCOCOZY area rug and throw blanket.
And goodness, I’ve had this coffee table for so long I almost can’t remember where I got it. I believe it’s from Crate + Barrel from over 15 years ago! Don’t do the math…
The brass swans are another flea market find!
I spiced up this couch from Restoration Hardware with fun pillows and a throw, all from COCOCOZY. You can shop the collection by clicking here.
All of the chairs (other than the couch) are vintage flea market finds that I have had refurbished. Which makes me wonder… would you like to see a post specifically on how to redo chairs?? Let me know!
These heavy woven cotton drapes with grommets were purchased while I was traveling with my mom in Paris. Such a fun (and cheap!) find!
Here are a few ideas to give you a head start on creating your own vibrant space (below)!
