5 PARTY THEMES TO SAY GOODBYE TO SUMMER!

taco themed mexican party

Labor Day always signifies the end of Summer… and while I’m certainly hoping we still have a few weeks of sunshine left, who can pass up a parting-of-seasons party? So, rather than throwing the typical BBQ this weekend, why not try one of these inspired themes instead!? From playful, to glamorous, to campy, one of these […]

ON TREND :: MOON PHASE

There are many motifs  that come and go but this is one that has stuck with me lately – I’m calling it my moon phase. However, it’s not necessarily in the ways that you might think… Really, it all started with Stella Maria Baer‘s beautiful moon paintings – the colors so perfectly in harmony with where […]

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 9.2

IMG_3273

I don’t know how many times I hear from friends and clients, “I don’t want to invest too much, this is a rental, after all.” And then three years later they’re still living in that same rental with that same ‘good enough’ decor… Well, this space is the opposite of that story. A rental-turned-home in […]

    Totally agree. After 18 years of home ownership, we decided to rent ,twice! Both times I bought furniture just for the space and consigned anything that didn’t fit. This current space, our landlord liked what we did so much that he decided to try to sell the place! We had similar issues about hiding not so great floors and bathrooms that weren’t our taste but we camouflaged what we could and embraced the rest. We’re in the middle of a renovation on our own home now so after we move from here, I’ll again consign and design our home in a way tha fits the space. If you want to see the current rental the MLS is
    MLS# 215029381. In columbus ohio.

HOW TO :: STYLE YOUR KITCHEN SHELVES!

Open shelving in kitchens has proven itself to be less of a trend and more of a staple these days. While I definitely prefer to keep most of my items hidden behind closed doors, I must admit that having a few shelves to style with some of our prettier selections would be nice. So, while I contemplate […]

weekend-links-coco-kelley-8.28

I woke up this morning to a cool grey sky and the promise of September being just around the corner, and I’m kind of stoked. Fall is my favorite season, and September is my favorite month! I’m at my best when nesting season comes around, but this year is different because I have a whole […]
