If you had asked me in high school what I wanted to be when I grew up, I probably would have said a magazine editor. I suppose, in a way, that vision has come true. I spend my days here at coco+kelley pulling together my favorite products and inspirations in the fashion, design, and entertaining realm, reporting them to my readers as any good editor would – with plenty of thought and opinion.
With a background in Marketing, Event Design and Visual Merchandising, it’s not hard to see how I landed here. But it was my first editorial experience – a brief but serendipitous stint as a Market Editor for Seattle Homes & Lifestyles – that reinspired me to follow my passion for writing and design, and I launched coco+kelley in May 2007 as a way to share all my stylish obsessions.
Now, I find myself creating many of the shoots you see on our pages, collaborating with other designers, artists and brands to bring inspiring and original content to the blog. With my personal style rooted in the classic, but a strong eye for trends, and an imagination that enjoys pushing boundaries and disregarding rules, I’ve found my true joy in playing the role of editor, art director, stylist and author to each of these projects.
These days coco+kelley has evolved into a full lifestyle company, offering interior styling and boutique event design to private clients across the country, as well as merchandising, branding and art direction services to brands. You can read more about all of our offerings on our services page, and view our complete portfolio here.
Coco+Kelley has been recognized by editors at Lucky Magazine, Martha Stewart, House Beautiful and Sunset Magazine, and was honored to be listed on the London Times ’50 Best Design Blogs’.
