DULY NOTED // 11.22

I’m getting a late start to my weekend links thanks to a lovely little cold (raise your hand if you’ve already caught it – ugh) which might be why a few of these items are decidedly cozy and perfect for staying in…

coco-kelley-weekend-links-november-22

1 // This is the time of year where I wish we had a cabin to escape to for the holidays, and the corner of this Sun Valley Lodge is making me want it even more. While I don’t think I could deal with that much rustic wood all year round, it certainly makes for a charming winter getaway, don’t you think?

2 // Two words. CHARCOAL. CHAMBRAY. I mean, I don’t even care what form it’s in, I’ll take that any day of the week. The fact that it’s on this gorgeous pillow by Susan Connor (obsessed with the entire line, thank you very much) is a bonus.

3 // Using leather on a tabletop isn’t something that’s done very often… but when it is I always always love it. So these DIY gold and leather napkin rings are begging to be made this Thanksgiving.

4 // Slippers are on the top of my Christmas list, and these just might be the winners. Gold and cozy feet warmers? SOLD.

5 // I’m not one for murals but I’d put this one in my bedroom in a heartbeat.  Set into those high-gloss black walls and molding, all of a sudden the moon and stars are looking super chic.

6 // Holiday entertaining requires champagne on ice, as far as I’m concerned. And I haven’t seen as chic of an ice bucket in quite some time as this white one rimmed in gold.

A MOD MOD CHRISTMAS {WITH CRATE AND BARREL!}

Confession – I love when I get to work with brands on collaborations like these because it pushes me to get creative with how I see their product. So, when Crate & Barrel asked me join the likes of this fabulous crew for some holiday styling, you bet I was up to the challenge! And my vision all started with these fabulously mod appetizer plates

They set the tone for a more mid-century inspired Christmas party at home… I can just picture guests dressed in vintage attire and Dean Martin Christmas carols. It also inspired me to go with a fairly retro palette…

love the combo of the citron yellow, aqua and green as the main colors here – with a dash of red for holiday spirit of course. Walnut accents add to the retro vibe. The pillow complete the look and are such an easy way to switch up color in a room! (You can find the houndstooth ones here and the yellow tweed here).

These little cocktail picks were another inspired favorite.  Don’t forget that swanky decanter! Oh how I love setting up a good bar…

But let’s not forget the party table! Instead of my usual tabletop, I was all about creating loungy space for this gathering, so snacks and decor went on my big coffee table instead…

Pro tip: gold confetti = instant party. So do yellow plates, I think. Toss those pillows on to the floor and let your guests settle in with their drinks!

A few oversized baubles in a bowl, and you, my friends, are all set.

    OMGoodness! I LOVE this idea. So much pretty and inviting than leftovers on a paper plate wrapped in tin foil. I’m definitely adopting this from now on. Bravo to you and Marabou Designs!

THANKSGIVING SIDE DISH :: SHAVED BRUSSEL SPROUT SALAD

Thanksgiving is my faaaaaavorite holiday because – it’s about the two things I love most. Friends and FOOD! So, of course we had to put together our own easy Thanksgiving recipe for the occasion.

This light but flavorful salad is the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving menu because it’s quite light and the flavors very complimentary. It’s also an easy dish which is nice considering the amount of prep we all do for such a big dinner!

Brussel Sprout Salad with Pancetta, Apple and Cranberry // coco+kelley

Shaved Brussel Sprouts with Pancetta, Cranberry and Apples // serves 4

Salad Ingredients ::

  • 4 cups shredded brussel sprouts
  • 1 large or 2 small red apples (we prefer pink lady or braeburn!)
  • 1 cup Pancetta, cubed
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Citrus Vinaigrette Ingredients::

  • 2 Tbsp orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Brussel Sprout Salad with Pancetta, Apple and Cranberry // coco+kelley

Prep ::

Start by shaving down your brussel sprouts by putting them through a food processor. You can also thinly chop them if needed! Slice the apples very thin as well.

In a saucepan over medium high heat, cook the pancetta until it starts to brown. Add the cranberries and walnuts and continue to stir to allow the flavors to mix. Once the pancetta is fully cooked, remove from heat and add the mix into the brussel sprouts.

Sidenote – we have the best induction range from GE in our studio that makes cooking like this a breeze, it heats up so quickly, and cooks everything so evenly! Remember that every range is different, so when you’re cooking, adjust temps to suit your stovetop.

Toss well, and then gently mix in the apples…

Whisk together the ingredients for the vinaigrette and add slowly. I like my salads barely dressed, but if you prefer more flavor you can double the recipe for the dressing and add more!

No need to fancy this dish up – just serve it as is! And as a sidenote – I haven’t been the biggest fan of raw brussel sprouts in the past, but I have to say that this dish changed my mind! However, I think you could easily also roast them up a bit and serve this at a nice warm room temp for a different experience. Either way, it’s a goodie!
