Episode 29: Reinventing Home featuring Rebecca West
After the breakdown of her marriage, Rebecca West was ready to start her new life but reminders of her previous one filled her home. That’s when she realized she would have to transform her space to break free from her old story and reinvent herself.
CONNECT WITH REBECCA WEST:
What began as a fresh interior became a new career, a new relationship, and the conviction that living spaces influence and reinforce what we believe about ourselves and the world and even how other people treat us.
In this episode Rebecca shares her own story of self-discovery, what growing up on the move in an army family taught her about home, and offers inspiration for creating an environment that can nurture and support us through times of stress.
Thirteen years ago Rebecca West looked around her house and said “I can’t keep living like this” and she transformed her home on a recently-divorced-woman’s budget. Ever since, she’s been on a mission to help folks get happy at home. Now, Rebecca is CEO of the interior design company Seriously Happy Homes and author of the book “Happy Starts at Home.”
Even though she’s an award winning designer, she’s never really cared if anyone ever buys a new sofa. She just wants our homes to be our happy place. Rebecca can’t resist a cat video or a costume party, loves Oreos and Scotch whiskey, and has a knack for seeing the silver lining in most situations.
