The Happy Home

The Ultimate Guide to Creating a Home that Brings You Joy
by Foy, Chelsea

This lovely and inspirational guide, organized around six joyful feelings, will show you how to create a happier home, through prompts, quick fixes, afternoon projects, and mindful design and organization—The Happy Home is not just a title, it’s a promise.

Energize. Uplift. Comfort. Calm. Empower. Express. The road to happiness is paved with good emotions. In fact, a happy home is infused with these six qualities and this cheerful book will help you create a space you love and that loves you back. Lovely Indeed creator Chelsea Foy offers up more than 50 creative ideas to engage all the senses to brighten your mood throughout your home. This book sits at the intersection of HGTV home improvements and design, thoughtful Marie Kondo practices, and a cheery color palette fans of the Home Edit will love.

Kicking off with a foreword by Joy Cho, creator of Oh Joy!, the book then guides you through questions to consider so you can customize your home to your own mood-lifting needs, be it a calming bedroom, a zen den, or an energizing kitchen. Easy projects and ideas offer a path to tweaking the rooms of your house so they engage all the senses in all the right ways.

Each chapter focuses on a feeling and includes:

  • Guided prompts/questions: Prompts to reflect on what a happy space might look and feel like
  • Quick Tricks: Creative hacks and ideas to freshen up your space
  • Afternoon Projects: Doable projects and inspo for your home and décor to add joy
  • Big Ideas: Step-by-step projects that you can complete in a day or weekend that are inexpensive but go a long way to creating a home tailored to your tastes and happiness needs
