The song, written by Graham Nash describes some blissful domestic moments from time he spent with singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell. They had a house together, that they shared with her two cats, in Laurel in Los Angeles, California. They had been to breakfast together at Art’s Deli. On the way home, they went into an antique store and bought a vase. It was drizzly and gray, and when they arrived home, Nash said, “Do you know what? I’ll light the fire, and you put some flowers in that vase that you just bought.” David Crosby, Steven Stills, Graham Nash, and Neil Young added their magical harmonies, and so the song was born. “Our House” was released on their 1970 album Déja va. The song went to #30 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 1970.
