My name is Erika and I am an interior designer living in Pasadena, California, with my husband, Walker, and our dog, Bo. I am hopelessly addicted to DIY projects, crafts, home blogs, and trips to the craft store. Since I live in one of America’s most expensive cities, buying a house is out of the question… but there are a million things to do to make a rental feel personal so here we are!
Welcome to Our Cozy Cubbyhole. It’s small but it’s ours! <3
More about me: originally from upstate New York, I moved to Los Angeles seven years ago to work in the film/television world. In my occupational pursuits, I met my wonderful husband at work (you can read more about how we met here
and about our engagement here
!). Though I decided to go back to school and change my profession to interior design, I kept Walker! He is my rock. He is funny, handsome, smart, thoughtful, kind, generous, and so supportive. Basically, I thank my lucky stars that I found such an incredible man. Also, he is great enough to tolerate how much I adore my dog… which brings me to the second man in my life: Bo (AKA Bo-Bo, Little Beans, Peanut, Wimmie, or just about anything else as long as you say it in a high-pitched, excited voice). I rescued Bo eight years ago
, and we have been inseparable ever since. What kind of dog is he? We finally got a DNA test this year and the verdict is one quarter Chihuahua, one quarter Miniature Poodle, and one half mutt extraordinaire (the breed most likely to be most prominent in that mix is Manchester Terrier).
Besides all things DIY, crafty, and home-related, I love reading, playing guitar, music, outdoorsy (yes, that is a word) stuff, television, food, and wine. I love living simply and enjoying the little things. This is where I get my style: simple, cozy, personal, a bit reminiscent, and happy. Our home is a peaceful oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the city. And you are always welcome! :)
