small homes make us happier

We are thrilled and honoured to be included in this fantastic article by Matthew Hague in the Globe and Mail on August 24, 2019!

The article starts with Matthew's interview with Danny on why we think smaller homes could make us happier and we talked about why we rebranded from CHAN + DEE DESIGNS to Happy Home Design so we can focus on helping people love their smaller homes.
