Join us in celebrating our birthday

Six years of Happy Homes!

Isn’t it crazy how time flies? This February, we’re looking back on what will be our sixth year doing what we love: making homes happy.

It’s only natural that we’re celebrating our birthday in style…

Each week for three weeks, we’re visiting one interior blogger who showed us how they made their home a little happier using bestselling pieces (read: customer favourites) from URBANARA.

From February 6th, we’ll present each mini-makeover here on our journal. Plus, we’ll be giving you 20% off on their personal Interior Blogger Picklists!
