We may not have our 4th of July plans solidified yet, but I know one thing that will be happening this weekend – dessert. And, let’s be honest, it’s hard to stray from anything red white and blue when celebrating your nation’s birthday, so on top of being thankful for our freedoms, let’s be thankful that these colors also lend themselves so well to some indulgent sweets!


1 // You’ll spend a little time making the shortbread spoons, but the rest of the recipe is a super simple combo of vanilla ice cream, raspberry sorbet and blueberries to top!

2 // Because who doesn’t like an excuse to bake an ombre cake? Or perhaps a rainbow version is even more appropriate this year…

3 // A gluten-free granola crust and frozen yoghurt makes this dessertweeeee bit more on the healthy side. I love the berry topping that gives it that pinwheel pattern.

4 // This is one of my favorites for the simple fact that I love panna cotta, and I LOVE the idea of sprinkling edible stars on pretty much everything. This version happens to be a boozy dessert, but you can easily substitute to make it for all ages.

5 // These cookies are made from vanilla cake batter – add some red and blue sprinkles and you’ve got some seriously festive, messy, delicious ice cream sandwiches on your hands.

6 // What’s better than s’mores? A s’mores cobbler of course. Adding strawberries (or any berries really) to the mix makes this a delicious communal dessert – no fire required.

Pick a favorite, any favorite. The panna cotta and s’mores are calling my name…

Lately I just can’t get travel off my mind – I’m already planning some big (and little!) trips for the coming year, from a return to Marrakech for our styling workshop to a potential getaway in Jamaica (what!) all I want to do is hop a plane! So while some of you may be getting away to summer homes or local beaches this weekend, I’ll be dreaming of being here… in Portugal.


This sunny spot in Camporta, just outside of Lisbon is an area I’ve just become familiar with as I’ve started to do research on my Portugal getaway. Lisbon was already on my list of next destinations – in fact, I was planning on heading there on our way back from Morocco – so if you happen to be the owner of this bright and happy home, maybe I could just come and stay a bit?



The bright living area is my favorite room – the extra long ottoman makes the space for me. But I love the subtle stripes everywhere, and the pops of saturated pink! This color scheme takes place throughout the home and is done in such a tasteful fun way. From art to textiles, the splashes of magenta are spot on.


The oversized pendant in the dining area is a fun addition as well – a perfect addition that doesn’t overwhelm. I also like the touches of high-contrast black in the decor. Not something I would normally think of for a beach house, but it totally works and creates a little drama.

And of course, I have to share a few bits from the rest of the house…



A beautiful outdoor dining area just off the kitchen on a porch that leads down to the pool.  



Both bedrooms are keeping in line with the palette in the living area with loads of white and hits of that gorgeous magenta. Doesn’t it feel so fresh and chic? Love those linen slipcovered headboards – those are definitely next on my personal wishlist.

And it looks like those stairs lead up to another lofted sleeping area. If you don’t mind, I’ll just claim that one, and move in? See ya at the pool.

    That house is dreamy! This is the second time this week that I’ve heard someone rave about Portugal, and it’s inching me closer and closer to planning our own trip.

We’re in the midst of a little office makeover at coco+kelley headquarters, so naturally I had to put together a little moodboard to start pulling the look together. A big part of this update? COLOR! Or at least some major splashes of it…

    I started following PRC on Pinterest — which is perfect, since my husband and I just moved from AL to CA and are in DIRE need of some upgraded / updated rugs in our new space! I’ve already got my eye on several of the lovely rugs featured on their etsy shop, particularly “Meadow Flowers and Butterflies” (from the Boucherouite collection) and “All the Dahlias in Her Garden” (from the Beniourain collection).

  10. Stefanie

    Holy momma this is exactly the giveaway I need right now! I just bought a condo and replaced the hideous carpet with wood flooring- only to find that they have mandated I cover 75% of the area with rugs! I am in desperate need and absolutely LOVE Pink Rug Co’s assortment. I think I would go with either: ‘Pleasure in the Pathless Woods 8’x3” for my kitchen or ‘Queen of Flowers 7’x6” for my dining area.

    Thank you so much for this opportunity!!

So, this is a little series I’ve been thinking of doing for a while. Whenever I entertain – as I think most of us do – I like to play the part. Or rather, DRESS the part. Because I’m not just talking about being hostess with the mostess. I’m talking about literally matching up my outfit to the environment I’m creating. Is it crazy? Maybe. Is it fun? Heck yeah!

dress the party series cocokelley

And so I bring you, Dress the Party, our inaugural post.


1. red white and blue cafe lights // 2. striped melamine dishes // 3. linen stripe cocktail napkins // 4. red beverage dispenser // 5. chambray star shirt // 6. red white and blue striped skirt // 7. red and white striped sunglasses

Sidenote – I cannot believe it’s the 4th of July this weekend! We haven’t made a single plan yet, so I’m sure we’ll be scrambling at the last minute to host some friends or crash someone’s BBQ. What are you all doing? Any fun 4th of July traditions?

Psst. For more ideas from recipes to decor follow our 4th of July pinterest board

Goooood morning and happiest friday! The sun is shining and it’s going to be a hot one this weekend, so I’m ready to ring in the true arrival of summer around here while we work on our tans and sip some cocktails! It also happen to be Pride Weekend in Seattle, and what better timing could you ask for with the announcement this morning from the Supreme Court? I don’t know about you, but I will be celebrating LOVE this weekend.

neon love | coco+kelley


1 // I love pretty much any home tour, but find it particularly interesting to see what designers do with their own homes. I’m obsessed with the dining chairs in Lauren Nelson’s abode featured this week on Rue, along with a few more pretty little details.

2 // Sherbert is my favorite color. Therefore, THESE PILLOWS.

3 // Did you catch our serious sandal roundup at the beginning of the week? Adding these striped ones to the favorites list.

4 // I love this ‘live wood’ headboard DIY made out of plywood from In Honor of Design. A much more affordable – and lighter- option to the real thing.

5 // I mentioned last week how much I love nectarines, so I’m back at it with this Nectarine Prosecco Sangria which sounds absolutely heavenly. Especially in the almost-90-degree heat we’re about to experience this weekend!

6 // A very chic solution to my keys constantly getting lost in the bottom of my bag. I love the solid wood ball on this keychain with its artsy vibe.

Happy weekend all. Spread some hugs.
