Cope’s Room Makeover: A Work in Progress Worth Following Along

I am so excited to come here today & share the new floors in Cope’s big boy room!! We are far from done in this room, but the floors have made such a huge & exciting difference. This room makeover has been a long time coming just like the rest of our home. Last night on Instagram I shared the floors in a quick video with a sentiment that a cozy home TAKES TIME [here] & I truly hope that it helps those in pursuit of cozy who feel like its just taking too long or that everyone else is quicker than them. Your home journey should not be compared to anyone else’s because everyone’s end goal & requirements are vastly different. As they should be. We all define cozy so differently. Cozy to me is my five senses being at peace at once & just imagine how different all of our senses truly are. 

We started sharing our home renovation journey technically 6 years ago when we moved into this old farmhouse of ours, but at that time we truly knew with such a large home & a small budget, that we would be doing temporary changes like painting the floors, painting walls, & prepping for big changes that we would be making later. The goal at that time: make it cozy in the in-between. We also share our diy projects & creative adventures as part of our job so there is that added layer for us. But about two years ago we started ripping things up & truly prepping for the big changes that we are currently making. It has been a LONG process with many many setbacks that have made this feel never ending at times & I have caught myself comparing my journey as I share online & feeling like I am falling short in comparison as I post progress, but not large before & afters so quickly as I see others do that I look up to, but read my words above again… I KNOW that cozy takes time & that all our journeys & seasons of life are so different that there is no comparison & yet here I still do it as well. So these words that I write here & in all of my books & on my socials, I need those words & reminders as well. You are not alone. We all crave cozy.

We are so excited to share an update on Cope’s room makeover with you all. As many of you know, Cope is an avid dog lover and has been wanting to transform his room to better reflect his passion. We recently started work on giving his space a refresh with new flooring, paint, and decor pieces centered around his love of dogs. I have been collecting dog portraits for years now for a large gallery wall & can’t wait to hang them up in this room. The checklist of things we need to do yet is quite a lot so more on that later.

The process began with installing new flooring from my Dura Decor collection in the warm and inviting Guesthouse Brown hue. After much debate, we settled on Farrow & Ball’s Blue Grey paint to provide the perfect neutral backdrop. Scattered throughout are touches of Cope’s personality, like vintage dog portraits, books about different breeds, and other canine-centered accessories.

While the room is certainly taking shape, this project is still very much a work in progress. For now, I wanted to give you all a glimpse into our progress so far. Over the coming weeks and months, we will add more custom elements and finishing touches. Our goal is to create a space that Cope feels reflects him while also serving as a source of inspiration. Be sure to follow along as we continue transforming his room. You can see more of his room progress & process over on our IG here: @LizMarieGalvan
