DESIGN SOURCE :: PAMPA RUGS

Sometimes I get so wrapped up in the inspiration part of design that I forget to share my other favorite part – sources!! There are so many cool companies out there doing great things, and of course so many beautiful handmade products coming from small businesses, I really want to get back to showcasing more of those around here. So, lets’ start with a textiles company that I’m currently obsessed with: Pampa.

Of course… they’re located in Australia where it seems all the amazing design things come from these days. But their rugs are seriously stunning.

Their array of rugs in every style from neutral to bursting with color capture the skills of Argentinian weavers, and their business supports local and fair trade. Bonus.

This style is one of my favorites with the little tufts – you can see the quality of the tight weaving in these details… so fantastic!

While they are across the world, they will ship internationally, so if you see one you just have to have, you can contact them directly for pricing.

There’s also a great interview with the founders that I found on Design Chaser to lend a little more insight into this cool globe-trotting couple, Victoria Aguirre and Carlyon Wilson.

    Beautiful! I think I will repost and also use this as inspiration for my nect Society6 collection! Thanks for sharing.

MAY MOODBOARD // CLARITY

You thought I forgot about you today didn’t you? Or the whole month for that matter, maybe? It does seem like it flew by, and yet at the same time I’m happy to see it go as it was quite possibly the most challenging four weeks I’ve had in a while.

So this month’s moodboard is about clarity. Simplicty. Things that feel like taking that cleansing breath that comes with the foggy chaos clearing a bit and the important things shining through. The calm after the storm perhaps?

It definitely feels like I’ve been through a bit of a storm this month – a heavy load of work, the presentation of some new possibilities on the horizon, still adjusting to major life shifts, and the challenges of settling into some sort of new ‘normal’.

I guess you could say my energy has felt more focused and purposeful in the last week after such a crazy month… and probably as a result of it. Funny how when challenged to juggle too many things, our priorities become much more clear.

It’s been a month of purging to make room for new ideas, new habits and new directions. And out of that has come a bit more of a clean perspective. A stronger perspective. So I’m harnessing that as much as I can and running with it right into June…

ROOM OF THE WEEK // 5.27

I have some really really big dreams for when we remodel our upstairs attic. Currently in a state of patched carpets and exposed beams and insulation, I can close my eyes and see how amazing it could be. Possibly… something like this?

An all white attic living room with collective style, a creative work space, and cozy details…

I love that they simply put two of the same sofas next to each other instead of a sprawling sectional – perfect for movie viewing! And I could see them turned to face each other too. This space is so welcoming. There is nothing overly-designed or precious about it, which is just what a family room should be.

The artist workspace is pretty fantastic. You can tell that everything in this collected space means something.

And just down the hall is the master bedroom – a perfectly simple but dreamy space…

Which once again has me questioning if the larger space we have to work with upstairs should be the bedroom, or just a huge room for all of us to enjoy?

If you like what you see here, check out the entire house tour – it’s lovely – right here. In fact, I just spent entirely too much time perusing this blog (appropriately called lovely life)  because it’s absolutely inspiring.

IT’S BACKYARD SEASON!

I hope you all had a fantastic long weekend – and that some of you broke in your backyard and BBQ like we did! The fact that we’re on the verge of summer is making me super distracted, so I’m glad we got to indulge in a little sunshine and entertaining with friends as a way to kick of the first of many long evenings…

I set up the fire pit complete with blankets and ‘crash sacks‘ for people to cozy into as the evening cooled off. I also put together that genius tray situation on a crate we had in the basement. Fancy, I know.

Our bar was stocked with a bucket full of rosé and beer, and I threw together a little mixture of lemonade and mint for a refreshing drink (vodka optional!). Easy for everyone to help themselves to!

Once friends started showing up, everyone got comfy on the lawn! (The BBQ wouldn’t have been complete without a little Noodle appearance. So stoked to have Joanna back in Seattle!)

Oh, and we made some fern and floral crowns. Because, why not? Our yard is bursting with flowers right now, and I also picked up some peonies at the store… it seemed like the perfect little activity.

We strung a few up and wore them all night! Want to know the easiest way to make these? All you need is some thicker string, and some really thin wire. You just wrap the wire around the stem, and then attach the flower or fern with a second wire to the string and tie it around your head. Yep, it’s REALLY that easy.

My friend Jess is a babe in this fern crown.

As the day turned into night, J got the fire going and I decided it was time we tried out some modeling poses in our crash sacks.

I am obsessed with this thing. I will be wearing it and sleeping in it every camping trip we take this summer. I am a total wuss in the mornings when it comes to crawling out of the tent. I love that it tucks up in the back too, so no dragging the sleeping bag on the ground.

The boys discussed the all-important topic of proper fire-building form while we cozied up to the flames and talked late into the night…

I’m very certain this is just the first of many backyard moments we’ll be having this summer, and I cannot wait for more! All of the set up was made way easier with the use of our chairs, rug and table from evrgrn!

    Looks like a marvelous time indeed! Must have been a bit chilly up in your neck of the woods- Atlanta was sticky already!

SHOP THOSE SALES + HAPPY WEEKEND!

Raise your hand if your inbox has been inundated with emails about Memorial Day Sales in the last 24 hours. (Me, me me!). It’s a little annoying, if not intimidating, but man there are some good deals out there… So I did a little rounding up this morning of some of my favorites for ya. Save yourself the time and effort – delete those emails, and start your shopping here instead!

memorial-day-sale-picks-from-coco-kelley

1. furbish pink geo pendant // 2. intermix off-shoulder tunic // 3. bauble bar mini icon studs set // 4. furbish bright marble napkins // 5. nordstrom silver espadrille // 6. asos mint sunglasses // 7. j.crew kiss kiss tee // 8. serena & lily round mirror // 9. loeffler randall iridescent sandals //  10. gap perforated clutch

My trick for avoiding the black hole of online sales is to skip anything that is an extra markdown off of sale items. If it’s already on sale, it’s probably on its way out the door, last season, or they won’t have your size. With that in mind… here are my favorite sites you should be perusing, with my favorite picks from above (that j.crew tee is already in my shopping cart!)

Furbish Studio // 15% off site-wide // CODE: SUMMER15

Intermix // 30% off select spring styles

BaubleBar // free shipping + 20% off sitewide // CODE: MEMORIAL20

Nordstrom// half-yearly sale, up to 40% off

Asos // 20% off // CODE: LONGWKND

J.Crew // 30% off your order // CODE: SUMMERLOVE

Serena & Lily // 20% off sitewide // CODE: ALLOUT

Loeffler Randall // 30% off resort and spring shoes and handbags

Gap // 40% off regular price styles // CODE: SUMMER

For all of my favorite picks, check out our ‘shop’ page – I’ll be adding to it all weekend long as I find anything on sale that strikes my fancy! I’ll also be soaking up some sun and relaxation time at home – I’m having one of those moments where I’m super grateful for a weekend with no plans for me and my guy to just dig in the garden, explore some new places around town, and just relax! Enjoy the long weekend all!!
