Rebecca is a certified Design Psychology coach with degrees in Interior Design and in Community and Environmental Planning. She leads an interior design firm Seriously Happy Homes for 12 years, and has helped over 2,000 people create a happier home. But what connects her so deeply to the importance of having a happy home, and helps her have compassion for her clients, is experiencing it for herself. Finding "home" while growing up in the military, splitting homes with divorced parents (one of whom was living on a sailboat in the middle of the Pacific Ocean), leaving home to serve in the Peace Corps, and reinventing her home post-divorce, have all made her hyper-aware of the importance of having a happy home, no matter where life might take you.

Rebecca West spent her early years moving from one home to another following her dad's career in the Army. Along the way she learned how to set up a home quickly and efficiently. In 1995 she made one last move and found her "forever home" in Seattle, Washington, falling completely in love with the evergreen trees, gray waters, and stunning mountains.

After getting a bachelors degree in both Geology and in Community and Environmental Planning at the University of Washington, she spent a period in the Peace Corps, spent several fabulous years teaching ballroom dance, and finally, after a divorce and having to turn "our home" into "her home," launched her interior design company in 2007 to help others move on in life without moving out. She doesn't care if her clients ever buy a new sofa, she just cares that their home is working for them.

Happy Starts At Home By Rebecca West Change Your Space Transform Your Life

Use your home as a tool to make better changes happen in your life. Through aligning your heart, home, and health, experience first-hand how small changes make a big difference.

If you aren't sure what needs to change in your home, or why, you may want to start by reading this book.

What does it take to be happy at home? It's not about buying or not buying a new sofa. It's about whether your home is working for you in the best way. Your home can directly improve your well-being and contentment with better health, sleep, and relationships, and ultimately decrease your stress levels to increase your all-round happiness. Design expert Rebecca West helps you to learn how to achieve a geographical cure without actually relocating and how to redecorate so you can feel best in your space. Along with beautiful photographs, there are a variety of self-assessment activities to connect your financial, emotional and physical health to your space to ensure it nurtures your vision - and while doing so, investing your time and money more effectively too. With the valuable advice in Happy Starts at Home, you can commit to a philosophy of buying fewer things and doing more to discover what's holding you back, in order to find joy and create a home that makes you smile.
