Hey friends! Welcome to Girls’ Night!
Our guest for today’s episode is my new friend, Liz Marie Galvan. Liz is a blogger, interior designer, and owner of the shop, The Found Cottage. Her most recent addition to that list is Author. In September, Liz’s first book, Cozy White Cottage: 100 Ways to Love the Feeling of Being at Home, was published, and, y’all, it’s so so good! I can’t wait for you to hear about it!
Decorating my home is something I love to do, but hasn’t always come naturally to me. Chances are, some of you feel the same way! You want your home to be your favorite place in the world — cozy, nurturing, comfortable, and beautiful. But you might feel at a loss for how to actually make that happen! That’s why I’m so happy to have Liz here with us today. Liz is here to teach us how to transform our homes into a beautiful space we long to come home to. She’s going to walk us through what to do to make our homes more cozy and inviting. She’ll also share practical tips for styling the “tougher” spaces in our home like our shelves, our living rooms, and our beds.
You are going to love our conversation! My favorite part is the secret she shares about making your bed look like the ones you see in home stores or magazines! Her advice definitely blew my mind, and I know it’ll do the same for you!

Tips for making your bed:
