    Cassandra, this is exquisite to look at and how clever! I’m sure the floral notes of the herbs took the cheese to exceptional places. I love Halloween, especially when it’s done in such a tasteful way. Great ideas to ponder before tonight’s nightfall of celebrations. Happy Halloween!!

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 10.30

Romain Ricard © site internet book travail décoration

In honor of Halloween, I thought it only appropriate to hunt down a dark and moody dwelling for this week’s Room of the Week… The living room of this home being my favorite. Essential to the balance of charcoal walls and an abundance of black and white is the addition of lighter woods, and cozier textures. […]

SUPPER CLUB // 5

emerald studio supper club_1

If you’ve been keeping track (which I suspect most of you may not have been) you might have noticed that we skipped our usual Supper Club this month. JJ and I have been so busy with other personal projects that October flew by without a weekend to spare! Which means we’re going to have to make up for it […]

    Seattle is on the top of my list for cities that I would like to visit. I grew up in NJ and just recently moved to Istanbul. It will be harder to visit but Seattle is still on my list and when I do come I will have to make sure I won’t miss one of the Supperclub events because it looks like soo much fun! I love all the photos and the table setting is gorgeous! Thank you for sharing!

PERFECT PALETTES :: RETRO REVIVAL

retro-yellow-pink-burnt-orange-palette

Whenever I’m in an inspiration funk for something to write about on the blog – usually first thing on a Monday morning – I dive into my color files to find something that’s speaking to me. Today? It was this… I’ve really been into these retro-inspired color palettes lately. That vintage brown. A little mustard yellow. […]

    Perfect timing! Though I gravitate to a palette of white and neutrals with texture and maybe some deep emerald green thrown in, I’m trying to be a little bolder in the new place I’m sharing with my boyfriend. Some new-to-us mid century chairs with bright blue upholstery are the jumping off point for this brave new world of colour and this is the kind of fun clashy-contrast that I want to pair it with.

DULY NOTED :: 10.24

coco-kelley-weekend-links-10.24

This was a big huge busy week. And this Sunday is a big day … my birthday. 34. Holy shit. (Sorry. But, seriously… 34!?) To some of you that might seem young. To some, old. To me, it’s somewhere right in the middle. Not quite where I thought I’d be and in some ways so […]

    Well happy birthday! I hope it all goes marvelous! And… I know. Each year at every birthday I have a little WTF!? moment. I can remember my 13th, 15th, 17th, 25th birthday like it was yesterday. I remember the kiddie parties, the dancing in club parties and everything in between. And in April 2015 I’ll be 29 years old with a 1 year old and husband and sometimes I think ‘How the heck did this happen so fast?!’ Lol am I the only one that thinks this way?

    Happy Birthday Coco! Oh to be 34 again. Sigh. Live it up. Loved your friend’s shop, Grandiflora. Looking forward to seeing what you curate on ebay. MS’s discovery and promotion of US artisans is one of my favorite contributions she has made. Enjoy your birthday weekend.

    Hope you had a great birthday weekend!
    I try not to think of an age any more, just to enjoy it all!!
    I love your friends shop, Grandiflora, their stock is beautiful! I want it all for my new house!
    The blue and black dining room is stunning (as is the rest of the house)!
    Yes Oscar De La Renta was an amazing designer! Such a shame.
    Great picks as usual!
