HALLOWEEN COCKTAIL :: THE SWAMP SPICE FLIP

the swamp spice flip cocktail recipe coco kelley2

Now, unless you’re actually hosting a Swamp-themed Halloween party like ours, you may not want to give such a delicious drink such an atrocious name. In this case, however, it fit quite nicely. But, if you’d like to give it a proper name, we’ll call it the Spiced Pear Flip… If you’re feeling so bold, you might […]

GET THE LOOK :: HEAD-TO-TOE GREY

the-the-look-head-to-toe-grey

First Birkenstocks, now endless layers of grey? Seattle sure seems to be right on trend these days, doesn’t it? But when you actually live in the grey (or with the guys who are still wearing socks with their birks) the trend doesn’t always seem quite as appealing. However – being a black-and-white girl myself, I happen to […]

    I thought it was silly when I heard grey was going to be a huge fall trend, but now I’ve found my closet full of it. I ADORE that chunky grey knit in the second photo.

DULY NOTED // 10.17

coco-kelley-weekend-roundup-10.17

This week was a reminder to myself of a lot of things. Of the incredible support I have from friends and collaborators and fellow creatives. Of the fact that I should really stop waiting until Oct 15th to file taxes. That simple communication can often solve even the most daunting of problems. And, judging by the […]

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 10.16

nicole-najafi-elle-decor-02

One word about this week’s room: Pistachio. Well, maybe it’s a bit minty too. But if there’s one thing about this small apartment that’s really making it stand out to me, it’s that wall color, taking things to a whole other level. Especially against that mauve-toned couch… And touches of gold… This space belongs to Nicole Najafi, […]

DIY :: A CREEPY CRAWLY HALLOWEEN WREATH

Halloween_101

If you all haven’t figured it out yet, my favorite DIY’s are the ones that are easy, and practically foolproof. So, when we decided to put together this swampy-themed Halloween party, I decided a mossy wreath was in order, and easy enough for me to whip up on a whim! When I say whip up, […]

    What a fun idea, and I totally agree with you….easy is always better! I love crafting but unfortunately the business of life always seems to get in the way. This seems like a quick and easy way to bring a bit of spooky Halloween into your house. Thanks for sharing!
