    So excited that you love the images from the book of our home! We made those driftwood lights ourselves.
    Justina sure captured the best parts of our home.

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: WHITE + WORLDLY

hannah_blackmore_photography_adorehomemagazine_interior_photography_wedding_nest_1321

You know how I love me some fresh white walls, warm, natural materials, and a curated, global vibe… So you know that I loved this room from the second I saw it! It’s a great example of mixing woods and wovens in different textures, and also a great layout for an open floor plan or […]

    Hi, Cassandra, love your blog! It is always the first one I check everyday. You mentioned in your post that this particular room reminded you of your loft space. I was thinking that in your current dining room (which you are redecorating) that you could get inspiration from this space as well. You said in an earlier post that you weren’t sure if you will keep the wood table or switch it out for the marble-topped one.I instantly thought that you could paint your wood table’s legs white like the one in the photo to lighten up the space a bit.

      Nice idea Michelle! I hadn’t thought of that, and I’m not sure my boyfriend would go for it since it’s his table… but worth being an option! We’ve also discussed putting a marble top on the current table, but the problem is that he really loves the texture of the top, so that’s out. I’d almost rather take the top of his and put it on an industrial base that’s powdercoated white. Could be a cool mix!

ONE ROOM CHALLENGE :: WEEK 3!

coco kelley dining room with blue walls rustic table and tulips

There’s always that lull when designing a room that’s the ‘sit and wait’ period. And my friends, we have entered it. In the past few weeks orders have been placed, and now I’m just waiting for everything to arrive! The roman shades, the chandelier, the new console (marble!) and some other surprises… west elm chandelier […]

    I’m SO in love with your art choice & I’ve always been obsessed with those SL stools. I’m a huge fan of dash & albert rugs, when I’ve used the diamond pattern it almost has a sheen to it which I think is so pretty, since you have stripes on the chairs I love the idea of the graphic diamond pattern! The space is coming together beautifully!

    I own rug #2 in the smallest size, and use it as a bathmat. I love it for how I use it, but don’t think that you’ll like the thickness of the yarns in a dining room. It just feels REALLY casual, and I imagine scooting chairs across it would be a pain. I would advise against this choice, even though I do like the product.

    Hi there!

    I am not against getting a deep clean on the original rug you had. The rich pink with the sea blue would be a beautiful, unexpected combination. Give it less of a nautical feel.
    My sister has a dining room with that exact look and it is stunning. May have to send pics your way for inspiration!

    I have used the D&A rugs many times….the other commenter is right that they are thick and do tend to stretch and wrinkle. If you do get one make sure to get a really good pad. I am partial to the OKL rug but then I did not hate your original one!

    Love the ‘coming soon’ mood board! It all works beautifully together! ANd though all the options you put up for the rug are great, we think number 4 would look beautiful with your design!

    I followed your link for the Serena & Lily stools. Were they actually $800.00 each? I did not see a sale nor pink.

SPRING WARDROBE TRENDS :: DENIM

full-length-denim-skirt-trend-spring-15

Denim is as old as the USA. Well, maybe not quite, but it certainly feels like the defining fabric of American fashion. It hangs in every closet, is folded in drawers nationwide, and it comes in shapes and styles that fit every lifestyle. All that said, we’d all be down right bored if it wasn’t cleverly […]
