THE NEW PASTEL

24f873b24a99bd74ffb756afe05597af

When pastels first made their way back into mainstream fashion, I was doubtful that they would last too long. Even for someone like me who enjoys a little powder blue here and there, the saccharine, somewhat traditional color palette is a bit much. But given a new, modern shape, or unexpected twist (like kilim!) suddenly these feminine […]

ONE ROOM INSPIRATION :: FRESH COTTAGE STYLE

fresh cottage style by stephen shubel via coco kelley_2

When I moved into my loft, I didn’t want to let the style of the home dictate too much of what the interior would look like… but it’s hard not to let that happen with brick walls and an open floor plan. So, now that I’m about to have a whole house to decorate, I’m revisiting some of […]

Welcome to the first round of weekend links in 2015! I guess this means I’m finally back in my routine… ish. The year has kicked off for me with some awesome projects around here, and my schedule is bursting with interior design projects, moving into a new house, and planning a few parties too… 1 […]

    I’m also trying to eat more healthily so that salad looks delicious!
    Your Moroccan hotel looks amazing, I have always wanted to go there so I look forward to your trip! Green hat is stunning, such a rich colour!
    Thanks, Kate.

    Oh my gosh, I’ll be in Morocco at the same time!!!! I’m starting in Marrakech, then Chefchaouen and Fes. You’re going to absolutely love it–this will be my second time. Who knows, maybe we’ll run into each other in the souk. ;) But I think if there’s one souvenir you should get, it’s a classic Moroccan teapot. They’re not too expensive (I’m a horrible bargainer yet only paid 18€ for one that serves four) and are beautiful, don’t rust, and make an excellent piece of home decor. To check that the quality is good, flap the lid a few times. If it feels super super light, then it’s no good. Look for nickel. Okay, rant over, but seriously, have so much fun!

ROOM OF THE WEEK 1.14

tamara-kaye-honey-living-attic-bathroom

I have a new obsession you guys. ATTICS. Remodeled attics to be exact. See, the home I’m moving into with my boyfriend has one that is completely unfinished… and ripe for dreaming! Someday (if all goes well and I still live there in another year), we’d love to renovate it and make it our master […]

    Love everything about this space! To me, attics are a decorator’s dream…they have great light, wonderful angles and a coziness you just can’t find in any other room!
    All the best in your new home:)

    I absolutely LOVE an attic bathroom! I’ve got a friend in SF who’s bathtub in smack-dab in the middle of her attic bedroom and it’s fantastic (even has a skylight above it). Definitely a dreamy space :)

    What great ideas for attic! We have similar attic that I’ve dreamed of doing something with. This certainly gives me something to think about. The white and gold combo are perfect for smaller spaces with angles . Love!!

5 WINTER STREET STYLE LOOKS TO TRY RIGHT NOW

short-sleeved-sweater-get-the-look-street-style-coco-kelley

I woke this morning in a total winter funk… typical for this time of year. Not that I can complain – the sun is shining today, and we haven’t had a drop of snow on the ground! But, I’m simply not a winter person. But – c’est la vie. We do have a few more months to get […]

      Thank you for such an awesome compliment! I’m not very good at motivating myself to get into a dress in the middle of winter, and I don’t expect most people are either – I like to keep things real and attainable! So I appreciate you noticing!!! xo

    I think I could really hop on the short sleeved sweater bandwagon! What I really need to work on is perfecting my layers. I have a bunch of coats, but they aren’t coats that I can wear on top of each other, so I need to work on that aspect of my wardrobe. For now, all I can afford to worry about is which items of clothing will keep me the warmest! I aspire to one day dress as well as these stylish women :P -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

      well my dear, you can add those but how are you supposed to know what to wear under if i just show a bunch of bundled up girls in each photo!? also, there are those whose ‘winter’ is a balmy 65. so a little of something for everyone, eh?
