It’s no secret that our team here at Glitter Guide has a thing for the color pink, which is just one of the many reasons why we love Coury Combs so much. Her sense of style is right up our alley, and we want everything in her beautiful home. Coury calls her home’s style “happy,” and we couldn’t agree more. In fact, it makes us so happy just looking at the pictures of her home that she shares with her husband and two adorable children, and we’re sure it’s going to put a smile on your face as well. Step right in and enjoy!
You’re one of our favorite OG bloggers and Instagram accounts to follow. How have those platforms impacted you over the last decade or so?
Thank you! Likewise! Wow, it’s hard to even explain this strange journey. I remember doing a home feature as one of the first on Glitter Guide in 2011 and I don’t think either of us were even on Instagram. In the next few years, the whole thing just started to blow up and everyone started making careers from it. So wild. It has allowed me to be creative almost every day and also still be available for my kids during the years they need me the most. I can’t explain my gratitude for that. Do I wish some days there was no internet? Yes. But just by showing up and sharing tiny snips of my life, I’ve been able to experience some amazing things AND help support my family at the same time. Wild, I tell ya!
How would you describe your home’s style?
What were you doing before starting Fancy Treehouse?
I started Fancy Treehouse in 2008, but it started as an eBay store reselling vintage and thrifted treasures. I was able to quit my job cutting hair at Rudy’s in Silverlake (Los Angeles) because I was making way more money on eBay. My husband and I were also in a band at the time and part of me was just buying time for when we were able to do the band full-time, but you just never what life has in store. My “brand” will just keep evolving naturally as my life and interests change. I’m grateful for anyone who has stuck around through all my life stages.
We love the touches of pink all over your home! Does that color hold a special meaning to you?
Well, it was my nickname from my dad as a kid! But, no, not really…it’s just a color that makes me happy. I remember way back on Livejournal, my tagline being something about liking everything in the color pink. I honestly try to get away from it sometimes, but I just can’t quit it.
What are some of your go-to home décor resources?
It’s all Instagram these days. Any hashtag will bring all the inspo. And in the immediate moment, I want everything to look like “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”
Where did you get the inspiration for your home décor?
I just buy what I like and hope it all goes together. It usually works out, so I think if you just follow your gut and buy what you love, you don’t need to second-guess it.
Has your décor style changed since becoming a mom?
Not really. I used to think I would have to have only unbreakable things in my house when I had kids, but I’m lucky that they don’t usually try to touch things they shouldn’t. There have been a few marker incidents, but I’m not really that attached to any stuff and I don’t buy anything too expensive at this stage for that reason. There’s always a chance it will be ruined and I don’t want to be the mom who freaks out if something gets a mark on it. I can have an expensive sofa in 10 years.
How do you start your day?
I stumble out to the kitchen usually on the request of my son for a “pack” (applesauce) and make some coffee in my Bonavita. Lately, I’ve been using the International Delight Pumpkin Spice creamer in it, but don’t tell anyone!
What’s your current nighttime beauty routine?
I’ve become skin-obsessed in the past year because I was so stressed about where my daughter was going to start kindergarten that my skin freaked out on me and got extremely dry. It’s balanced out now, but I cleanse with Tula Kefir Replenishing Cleansing Oil. Then I use the Tula Aqua Infusion Power Liquid, bareMinerals Butter Drench, Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream and Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask.
If you had one extra hour in the day, how would you use it?
As long as we are fantasizing, I would sit on the floor and play with my kids for the full hour. It drains me so much to play Barbies or superheroes, but I wish it didn’t and always feel guilty about it.
What is something you can’t live without on a daily basis?
My phone, unfortunately! Hoping someday that isn’t the case! The most important things in my day are my family and lots of coffee.
