I am having a major moment with arches. If you've been following along with the COCOCOZY Design House progress, then you know the home has several arches throughout and I totally love the interest they add to the house. Anyhoo ... I digress. This post is about this gorgeous kitchen I spy through the archway of this beautiful home designed by @lindsaychambersdesign. The exposed beams on the ceiling, the light fixtures, the island, the floors ... I love it all. #socococozy#bringstylehome

The final kitchen reveal is up on the blog today! We’re finishing up a few posts on our last house this year, and this was one of the biggest transformations in the whole place. It may have taken FOREVER to finish, but it came together just like we had pictured in the end!
My thoughts on self care.......
My Dad calls it the pot of boiling water theory. If “your” metaphorical pot of water is full..meaning you take care of yourself, whatever that means to you. You do things that help keep you grounded, happy and healthy. When you apply heat underneath the pot it can withstand a large amount of energy (work/ stress/ life/ lack of sleep, energy consumers etc) before it starts to boil. Take the same pot, with just a few inches of water at the bottom, apply that said heat under it and it boils really fast. We feel overwhelmed, sad, tired, worried, or stressed.
Why am I sharing this? I’m a visual person so this metaphor just stood out so clearly to me and has helped me a lot. Do things that refuel you, keep you healthy, physically and mentally so you can maintain your sense of wellness without always feeling like you are at your boiling point. Everyone’s pot is constantly needing refilling but it’s worth the energy you invest in yourself. I promise... and thanks Dad ♡
Things have gone a little country over here and I have to say, I’m loving it! I have been on a pillow kick lately, they’re easy and quick to make and can instantly change up a room. My latest a this cow print and vegan leather pillow I made, I love how it pairs with the African mudcloth. I am Emma and I am a pillow addict. 🖤 #pillow#gonecountry#mudclothpillow
How was your weekend? It was pouring rain here in Dallas, and all sports were canceled - so we did house projects! I always feel accomplished when projects get done!! So my husband installed our new beadboard kitchen backsplash. (We still need to paint it.) It was such an inexpensive way to refresh and lighten up our kitchen! (You can see videos in my DIY highlights.) I can’t wait to show photos when it’s done!🌟🌟🌟..
I am just loving having my fall decorations up! Some of my favorite pieces are these signs from @krumpetshomedecor !
And right now you can go to their site and use promo code: NISSALYNN to get 10% off your order!!🧡🍁🧡
This cutie was definitely my most popular Fall decoration from last year! Tutorial and more pumpkin painting ideas are linked in my Stories or saved in my “Fall” Story Highlights. Hope you all had a great weekend! #gingham#paintedpumpkins#falldecorations

Something new is coming to the shop this week.....💛🙌💛✨⠀
This weekend has been a pretty decent intro to fall, last evening as a matter of fact, the weather was perfectly cool with a crisp breeze, and I had dinner out with friends and homemade in-season apple crisp was on the desert menu.
I’m ready for it tho, the pumpkins and apple picking, chilly nights and fireside get-togethers.
I’m a day late but, happy first day of fall to y’all!! 📷 by @rachelemilia ⠀⠀
The crazy amount of light coming in this master bedroom allowed me to use a dark dramatic charcoal wallpaper by @thibaut_1886 . Are you up for dark wallpaper or just good ol’ paint? I just couldn’t put a nail in this beauty. Sweet dreams my friends! Busy week ahead.... tomorrow I’m off to design another model! 💪🏼 furniture @raymourflanigan lighting @progressltg photography @knyfive bedding @homegoods

Sunday rituals. I try to take a little time out on Sunday and write down my task list for Monday. In a way I'm taking it out of my brain and giving me a bit more head space to relax and enjoy the weekend. Do you have any Sunday rituals? This nook from my client is the ideal place for a Sunday nap, another Sunday ritual. 😴💤 #bannerdaysf 📷 @vivianjohnsonphoto

Earlier this week, you may have seen a few stories of me and my homie @hey.maca shopping for all kinds of goodies @homesensecanada 🤭✨ We’re so excited to share our special little collab with you guys, so much so, that I couldn’t help but share a really tiny itty bitty sneak peek! Can you guess what we collaborated on? 🍂✨| Also, cheers to Sunday evening and starting a brand new week tomorrow✨🥂

We had the best time at the Opening Night of the symphony last night! I wore this @needleandthreadlondon ruffle dress which is pretty much the feminine dress of my dreams. Thank you for having us @cincysymphony! 🎶

Swipe to see the progress➡️ One step closer to this room being done. When Poppy is quiet, you will find her here. I am so please with the way that the cushion cover turned out, all out of dropcloth! #capecorncottage
I don’t usually get into football super hard core but at the beginning of the season you’ll find me watching a game or two..I’m mostly there for the food!!😋 I’m making street tacos for the fam while we enjoy a little Sunday night football. 🌮🌮🌮Anyone else have football on at their house tonight? 🏈

Being a mom kicked my butt today. I love it. Obviously. ❤️ I can go from utter frustration to "Oh my goodness, I'm so obsessed with you!" in three seconds flat; but still, some days are harder than others. 🙈 Tonight, it's @santamargheritaus wine and crummy reality tv (both of which I obviously looove.) Cheers, mamas. 🥂 #ad#santamargheritawines#uncorkextraordinary
COCOCOZY at Home: The weather is starting to change a bit here in Los Angeles. Don't get me wrong, it's still pretty warm during the day, but the mornings and evenings are just a bit cooler. Some say we don't get seasons here in SoCal, but I do appreciate the little changes in temp from month to month. All that to say the beginning of a new season may just mean a dinner al fresco is in order! What do you guys think? #socococozy#bringstylehome
HELLLLOOO COLOR OF THE SEASON 👋🏻
Burnt orange. I can’t get enough of burnt orange, I’m sorry. Just got burnt orange pants, burnt orange pillows, and now burnt orange nail polish. I am LIVING.
This @opi ‘It’s a Piazza Cake’ is a perfect blend of orange + brown that’s fitting for any skin tone. Serving up a perfect fall day vibe with your favorite latte + blanket scarf. This color is fall.

My husband and I don’t consider ourselves to be swingers- but this swing right here has us rethinking everything😂 Today was install day on this beautiful sunporch for the sweetest client and I’m so happy with the final result (swipe to see the before!). Now, for the rest of the evening, you’ll find me measuring every room of our house trying to figure out how to get our own swinging bed🖤

We went and picked some apples before lunch today. I took some photos of P this past spring at the same orchard and we were lucky to get to the trees before all the pickers. It’s apple season and we are loving it over here.
