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

a palm beach living room with an east coast beach vibe in layers of blue and white | via coco kelley

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.

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 :: 6.25

cr_xhrpoUrVx (1)

Sometimes a ‘room’ happens to be a breakfast nook, living room, and kitchen all in one – such is the life of the city dweller. Tackling these types of spaces can always be a challenge, and when I do them I tend to lean towards a lot of neutrals so that they space doesn’t overwhelm. […]

ONE ROOM CHALLENGE – THE REVEAL!!!

Well, I suppose that compared to a few of my fellow designers, my reveal is not AS huge – we’ve been showing you quite a bit behind the scenes (maybe next time I need to be more of a tease?), but let me tell you this: a little styling goes a long way in transforming and finishing […]

    Beautiful room. I think you achieved your “polished global” style and more! Love how simple and uncluttered it is yet there is a definite curated feel to the accessories. Great job and looking forward to seeing more of your changes to this place!

    What a transformation! I love that shade of blue you picked and it works so well with the wood tone now! can’t believe these are the same dining table and bench … the new chairs and chandelier totally revamped the way they look and feel! That pop of green from the fiddle leaf is perfect against the blue! LOVE!!

    I love this! It’s a wonderful fusion of both your styles that created a very cohesive look. The chairs, wall color, chandelier – everything – it’s all fantastic!! Great job!

    You pulled off “polished global” to a T! It looks fabulous even without the rug (although I’m looking forward to seeing the rug in place as well). I love the art gallery you pulled together from both of your collections – it’s eclectic but also very streamlined. Great work compromising between the masculine and feminine. I also love that table runner – is it simply fabric you draped or is it an actual runner? More importantly, where did you get it?! Can’t wait to see what you do with the rest of the house!

    Beautiful!! That rich color on the walls is such a gorgeous background for everything! Love the texture of your chairs, the fab chandelier and your spot on styling! I was thinking I should have shown more instead of being such a tease, LOL!

    Amazing!! I’m loving the polished global look. That wall color is outstanding and is perfect with all of the other choices. Something somewhere in my life is getting painted Prussian Cadet. I can’t wait to see what you do in the living room; from this little glimpse, all the buttery coral seems so warm against the cool, moody dining room.

    I think it looks great and manages to be both stylish and very Seattle (polished, earthy). You mentioned early on that your boyfriend was attached to a gallery wall of family photos. Where did you move those? Are you planning on incorporating a few family pics elsewhere?

      Hey Carrie, thank you! We’re going to move the gallery wall of family photos to the hallway that leads to our bedrooms – I’m SURE that will be a whole other post! I have a feeling we may add some family images to other areas as well as we start to design – I would like to have a few in the living room area!

    I looooove the table runner. Would you be willing to let us know where you found that? 😉 What a beautiful room – I’m in the process of figuring out what to do with my SUPER BORING dining room.

    I’ve been hunting for a similar table to go with these exact chairs. Can you tell me where the table is from? I love the combination with the chairs!
