"Accidents often produce the best solutions… only you can recognize the difference between an accident and your original intent." -Jennifer Morla

Jennifer Morla until recently, was the Chief Creative Director for DWR and it's somehow reassuring to know that happy home design accidents happen in her life as well. Have you ever had a "happy accident" with the design of your spaces? Maybe a temporary solution that turned out to be fabulous, or the purchase of something unexpected that took your design ideas in a whole new direction. Big or small, let us know after the jump!

In our own home we stumbled upon a sectional couch that if put end to end is pushing 30' in length. We didn't set out to find a piece of this nature, but it's clean lines and ridiculously low price tag lured us in (if we told you how low, you'd probably hate us!). We wrestled it up the elevator and through our door and it couldn't have been more perfect. Nothing we owned however went with this piece that boasted super clean lines and a cool neutral color.

Piece by piece we sold things on Craigslist and donated what we could until finally our space is refined and it feels more like "us" than it ever has before. Had we of purchased a different more Mid Century piece (like our home had represented before) our open floor plan wouldn't have the same feel it does today and wouldn't represent us nearly as well.

What's your Happy Home Accident?
