DULY NOTED :: 8.29

coco-kelley-weekend-links-roundup-8.29

With this weekend marking the end of summer (although my fingers are still crossed for a beautiful September), I’m officially starting my mental transition to fall. I’m sure I’ll be spending more than a few hours cleaning out my closet and making a list of items I’ll need come October (hello boots!), recipes I’ll want […]

    This post is full of such beautiful colors! LOVE those nail polish colors. And, aren’t J.Crew sales awesome?! I love all of the great pieces I snag from their clearance sales.

    The Serena & Lily table is to die for, I love the orange and brass it’s gorgeous! I would love one for my new house but I don’t know if they ship to Italy, I will have to check!
    The Vogue MarioTestino shoot is beautiful. The colours and most of all the outfits are stunning! I want them all!
    Great choices!

CASS’ KITCHEN :: WATERMELON + COCONUT CRÈME

watermelon and coconut creme recipe cocokelley1

If you’ve been following my adventures the last few days, you know that I’ve been touring around through the Okanagan Valley in B.C. and by touring I mean eating and drinking to my heart (and belly’s) content.  I can’t wait to share more from the trip with you all (soon soon!) but in the meantime, […]

HOUSE TOUR :: A WHARF WEEKEND GETAWAY

3.nocrop.w1800.h1330

I can hardly believe it’s nearly Labor Day weekend. The true mark of the end of summer, I’m determined to make it count, so we’ve been hunting around a bit for last-minute cabins and weekend getaway spots that we can at least take a little day trip to. But if I were on the east […]

    Love it! kitchenette – (1) countertop surface? is it zinc? (2) compact stove – searching for one for guest house and reading mixed reviews for some brands- what company makes the stove? Thanks so much!

      Kathy – I have no idea to either question! If it doesn’t tell me in the article, we’re both outta luck. You can try and see if you can get more info from the original article (linked to in the post) or from the designer? Thanks!

SAY ‘BON VOYAGE’ TO SUMMER WITH AN OVERBOARD NAUTICAL PARTY

coco kelley bon voyage to summer party1

The sad truth about this summer is a) it went entirely too fast and b) I spent far too little of it on a boat. Which may explain why I felt the need to bid the sunshine goodbye with an over-the-top nautical party. It also may have had something to do with my obsession with bejeweled life-size […]

    I love the overboard (no pun intended)!! theme of this party x
    Those bejewelled lobsters are so cute and the nautical flags do make a great graphic on the invites!
    It looks like fun! I hope there were no men overboard!!

    I am old enough to remember “Overboard” and many of its predecessors!!! That was a greatly fun movie, and yes…I can totally imagine Goldie’s character dining in this fashion aboard her yacht! Heck…I can see ME dining aboard my imaginary yacht!!! :-)

    I really like the mix of colors and textures on this table, as well as the “bling” that abounds!!! My kind of table!!! That anchor is perfect, too, as a part of the centerpiece! The invitations are top notch, bar none!!! And the fanciful straws just take the cake. If you’re gonna do it, DO IT…right??!??!

    VERY cool! The ultimate in posh nautical!

ROOM TO BREATHE…

Roll03_Shot55-1157x800

Originally, I was going to share one room of this house with you all – a calm oasis of simplicity and architecture in this stunning living space… With a view I would very much like to be enjoying myself right now. All summer I had planned on making August my calm month. A month to enjoy […]

    These images are stunning especially that ocean view!
    This interior has very clean lines.
    I like the mix of styles and the artwork on the first image.
    I live in Italy and here we feel summer is coming to an end!
    As my kids have three and a half months off I’m kind of looking forward to the back to school routines!
    It’s been great, but…..

    I have seen this house featured on two blogs in the last couple of weeks and for good reason. It is stunning and completely redefines the boundaries of how a beach house can be designed. I especially love the mix of furniture with the black log in the first room. The step detail with the black floors in the dining area are a favorite too.
