Woah. Where did March go you guys? As I was writing the date for today’s post I realized how this month just flew by! There’s been so much going on around here, which may be why I’m craving a more minimalist interior as our Room of the Week today… This bedroom belongs to one of my favorite […]

    It’s hard not to love a room with a pool just outside the door.
    Have you ever showered in one of those tubs? Total pain. I get that they’re pretty, but they are not practical.

    I looked at the full story referenced here but can’t find the name of the piece or artist who did the large scale gray piece in the first two photos. Does anyone know?

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 3.18

classic blue and white apartment by william mclure via coco kelley

I’m always so refreshed when I stumble upon a space I’ve never seen before, and this one in particular is calling my name today with its blue and white palette that feels classic and fresh with a hint of tropical …. Not to mention that sweet pup who obviously just decided to stay put throughout the […]

    It’s so interesting the way they have two very different window treatments so close together. But it works in a beachy way, as you say. I love blue and white…screams summer.

    Stunning room! A little too busy for my taste but well-done all the same. Sooooo lets talk about that ginormous live? turtle under the coffee table? What in tarnation is going oh here? Either that’s a family pet or the strangest prop I’ve ever seen!!?

    It is overwhelming. It is like they try to show everything. I love the blue touch but there are so many things around that interfere with design. Just too many book, albums and so on… It makes me think, they miss a shelve.

    The tropical notes in this space are refreshing and the blue tones make you feel as if you’re on an island. The white walls also create a light, airy feel. These are some great ideas to incorporate in our own decorating schemes.

DECORATING WITH PORTUGAL-INSPIRED BLUE AZULEJO

PRINT + PATTERN :: PORTUGAL INSPIRED BLUE AZULEJO

This week Cass is in Portugal(!), so I thought it would be fitting to share beautiful images of the tin-glazed ceramic blue azulejo tile that is widely found across the country. The vibrant cobalt color you find in Portugal is definitely the source of our decor inspiration this week. Whether it’s formal and historical, like the image […]

    I adore that they decorate the outside of buildings. So many cultures do blue and white (Delft china from the Netherlands, iconic blue and white decor of Greece, Chinese ceramics). I had thought “azulejos” had something to do with blue, like “azul,” but I guess it comes from the Arabic word for polished stone.

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 2.11

I won’t lie, my friends. Today’s post took quite some time to come together. You would think that I just have a whole stack of Room of the Week ideas ready to go (and I do have quite a few) but the truth is, most of the time I take a look at them and … *yawn*. […]

    Gorgeous! That rug and flooring are just too good. It took me a minute before I could even look at the rest of the room and see the lovely soft peach walls and architectural details. Great find!

    How do you feel about the chandelier? I am renovating an apartment in the south of France, and the volumes are enormous–300-square-foot rooms, 12-foot ceilings. I am having trouble finding a chandeliers (I need 4) that fit the space. However, this style from the ’50s are more available. I think it’s awesome, but my husband (who’s European and thus has a different view of “old” than I do) says it looks like something from a grandma’s house. I’m looking for an unbiased opinion.

    While I lean way toward modern, I think this room is brilliant! Love the mix of classics with the hip….lets talk about those pocket doors!

    I HATE those cheap plastic stacking chairs! They really detract from the rest of the tasteful and authentic furniture, and look like a mistake. Would you pair a couture gown with a baseball cap? Note to designer: don’t try too hard to be original. Or stay at Wal Mart, if you really like this look.

    ps I think the chandelier is fabulous–Granny was never so lucky!

      To each their own! I like the mixing in of a little authentic mid century modern to keep this from feeling too stuffy! Also, while you can certainly get knockoffs of these chairs the real ones are far from cheap! I love the mix.

GET THE LOOK :: A ROMANTIC BERRY HUED TABLETOP

DARK + ROMANTIC TABLE SETTING

When we stumbled upon this wine and berry hued tabletop, I knew it would be the perfect starting point for some Valentine’s Day tabletop inspiration. Taking a cue from this lavish setting, we recreated our own version of this dark and romantic table… Overflowing floral arrangements of saturated peonies, berries and a bit of greenery add depth and texture. I’d tuck the bundles into vintage brass urns […]

    Looks perfect! I will definitely use your idea to set up the mood for Valentine’s day. Me and my husband rarely have the time to have a nice romantic dinner so I decided to do something special. Have a lovely day!
