OUT OF THE RUBBLE :: EARTHQUAKE 5.9 SERIES FROM BUDRI

Budri Milano Earthquake Series Tile art_1

Last week I stumbled across this tile collage on Pinterest and was intrigued enough to try and learn more about it. What I discovered is a beautiful collection that somehow escaped my attention when it first came out in 2013…   In May 2012 an earthquake struck the storage rooms of the Italian marble company, […]

    This is amazing what beauty to come out of tragedy! Now if I could only get one of those wall pieces for myself.
    Thanks for sharing!

    It’s amazing how creativity can transform a disaster in such wonderful objects! I’m Italian, I live where the earthquake was and I’m an interior designer, so this topic is particularly touching to me. We’re still working to rebuild all the things that were destroyed, and this project is a beautiful example of how sometimes great ideas come from really bad situations. Thanks for sharing it with your readers!

    Very innovative and marvelous designs made from Rubble. As said, the beauty that came out of this natural disaster is undeniable.

GIVEAWAY :: WIN A SPOT AT THE COOPERHOUSE DESIGN WORKSHOP!

In just a couple of weeks we’ll be hosting our second coco+kelley workshop here in Seattle, and I’m pretty darn excited about it. The design team who helped me put together this blog – CooperHouse – is coming to teach a two-day course for small businesses who need a little extra help in the graphic […]

    This is such a great opportunity!

    I could benefit from this because from day one starting my brand I have been self taught and done just about everything on my own. I’ve had to try and figure things out, and often coming to a round about, less than ideal solution because I’m winging it! There are so many ways learning these skills would benefit my business from marketing, website maintenance, product photography and editing, packaging-you name it! A large reason why I started my business was because I was so excited about all of the new skills I could learn, graphic design being one of them.

    Plus, it would be so much FUN! xo

    That would be amazing! As a recent college grad trying to balance a day job and pursuing a design career this would be an awesome boost. I would love to learn so much more and fine tune the skills I picked up on my own along the way. Thanks for the opportunity!

    I’m fairly new to blogging and would love to learn about graphic design and help make my site vibrant and fun. I would love the opportunity to learn and have the hands on training that the workshop provide. There is so much information out there that sometimes kind be confusing. This would help me focus and learn what it is I should be doing rather than guessing.

    I’d really love to take this workshop! I would really like to take ownership of both the design elements of my brand as well as the complementing photoshop skills. I have no experience with graphic design or photoshop and I am overwhelmed and confused when attempting either. I’ve been looking for the right place to learn and this seems like a great place to start!

    The best giveaway of the year – experience! My entire career (8 years) has been a frustrating long haul trying to learn blogging, social media, website, photography, photoshop, etc. I know you should spend money to make money, but sadly bills come first and I haven’t been able to do any branding. (My company name isn’t even my name anymore!) This would be such an amazing experience to win a chance to learn and better yourself+your business.

    I would absolutely love to take part in this work shop. I’ve had more than a few trial and errors and have tried relaunching only to get frustrated as I make the same mistakes again and again, albeit in different ways. Like so many other small businesses trying to get off the ground I am doing this “on the side” while I keep my paying day job, but would one day like to call my dream job my day job.

    As a representative of TerraCotta Properties, a residential design-build firm, we find it extremely important for Interior Design and Architecture businesses to pay attention to the choice of graphics and photographic representation of their brands. As a small business, we’d love to join your team and workshop attendees in Seattle to learn more about how we can strengthen our brand and stand out within our local design community.

    I do PR for a living and studied English and journalism but I would like to expand my knowledge in the design area. I take a lot of photography as part of my job and have a personal passion and interest in quality images and visual storytelling. I’d love to join you and grow professionally!

    This would be an awesome event to attend! I’m staying home with 3 active beautiful children and budget is tight for traveling. But hey, if I can I would have to go ;)

    As a small business owner who does all of her own branding/design/etc., your workshop would be the perfect opportunity to work on my skills and better my brand while also meeting other creatives.

    Immersing in a workshop with the Cooperhouse Team seems like the ideal match for me and my design business as I consider elevating the brand further.

    I have meandered through the past 7 years exploring various creative fields. Primarily, I’ve spent my time nursing my small, professional wedding photography business. Now, I am interested in taking my experience and my aesthetics and building a deeper knowledge in two main areas:
    First, clear and cohesive concept development.
    Second, executing strong visual communication.

    I’ve not signed up for other larger-scale blogger/photography/software shops because those have not felt like the correct fit for someone looking to intimately pursue equal parts education in artistry and technical skill. I think this CooperHouse workshop could be spot-on both in timing and course topic for this primed creative!

    I am always trying to grow my skill set. Many of the things taught in this workshop I have been trying to master for the the past couple of years on my own time. I think an intimate environment with access to expertise would enable me to be more confident approaching the creative side of things!

    Cassandra I’m so mad I missed this. I am a Home Stager. My business is fairly successful but I really need to bring it to the next level and I truly would have benefited from this workshop. I work in South Orange County (home of the first Real Housewives)…I was forced to reinvent myself when my husband’s job went sideways. Unfortunately my computer skills aren’t the up to par with my Staging skills. I love your blog. I’ll try next time.

WHAT TO WEAR :: LEATHER FOR SPRING

leather-for-spring-coco+kelley_1

You guys. I have become a total leather addict this winter. I love the edgy vibe it brings to every outfit. I live in my leather jacket these days. But, most of the leather pieces I own won’t be working with warmer weather approaching… so I employed the talents of my friend, personal stylist, and Le Curate co-founder, Sara […]

    What a great shoot! I love the concept of Le Curate also, especially for people like myself who sometimes need a nudge in a different direction to try when it comes to personal style.

    That leather bustier is way badass. My favorite look for sure. xo

    Black jeans are my go to almost everyday. I love them paired with that cute leather jacket and hat! I can’t wait for this dreary weather in Seattle to go away so I can break out the flats and booties! Gorgeous pictures!

    You look gorgeous. I actually bought a black leather jacket this past weekend in Boston. I had wrist surgery and had a cast on so could only try half the jacket on. Bought it with my fingers crossed. Cast came off today. Raced home and tried it on. Perfect! Love it! If the northeast ever warms up I may actually get to wear it. Great post!
