One Room Inspiration :: Classic Beach Cottage in Blue + White

After returning from a beach vacation last week, I feel inspired and creatively rejuvenated, but even more so- I’m itching to bring a little bit of the coastal vibe back home this summer. Sooo, naturally I thought I’d share a charming beach cottage living room as a source of inspiration and items to get the look at home! This […]

    I have always been a sucker for those matchstick shades. Had them in an apartment until I moved. Had them on my pergola (that didn’t work so well–they harbored bugs and didn’t filter the sun enough). I still love them.
    That driftwood thing is pretty cool, hanging from the ceiling like a natural mobile.

OUR GUIDE TO THE BEST NEUTRAL PAINT COLORS (THAT AREN’T WHITE!)

a guide to the best neutral paint colors for your home that AREN'T white!

There’s something to be said about a fresh coat of white paint – it’s crisp, clean, and offers a completely blank palette. So, don’t get me wrong when I say I’m ready for a change of pace, because it will always be a classic. But, as much as I love the look, we’re definitely ready for something […]

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.

    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.
