I got a call a few weeks ago from an old friend who needed a design pick me up.

Her starter marriage was ending. For anyone who has been through this, you know it sucks and is pretty much a major downer.

She wanted to get rid of all the old “stuff” and start fresh. I wanted her to get “Happy”! Pharrell Williams style! 

“Happy” dining room

I’ve never used music as inspiration for a design before, but hey, there’s a first time for everything!

Oh…and did I mention she was on a tight budget? Like squeaky tight.

All items are under $400.

“Happy” living room

Her living room and dining room are open to each other so we needed a nice style flow.

She already had a neutral sofa but everything else was fair game.

Here’s what’s going on over the sofa.

See all the awesome product sourcing on the Happy Pinterest board.

I’m super excited to see this colorful fun space come to fruition!

There’s nothing like Pharrell to get you over the divorce blues!!
