Today we're airing another episode of "On the LYC." You've probably figured this out but, LYC stands for Little Yellow Couch, and it symbolizes everything we're about: making time to have meaningful conversations with friends while sitting comfortably in a beautiful space. Or at least on an aesthetically pleasing piece of furniture! Over the past few seasons, we've been collecting little bits of wisdom from the stylists and designers we've had on the show and quoting them on Instagram. When looking at these quotes all together, we've noticed several different themes emerge. So for 2017, we're going to base each of our "On The LYC" episodes on a different theme related to creating a home you love. January is all about getting ORGANIZED!

We are so excited to introduce our first guest of season 6! We are talking with none other than Rebecca Atwood, the very popular textile designer and author of "Living With Pattern." We love Rebecca's beautiful pillows, linens, wallpapers and fabrics, and in this episode, we get to ask her about her own story, her business philosophy, AND really dig into the hows and whys behind developing your own personal style.
