VITAMIN C {WONDER} :: A CITRUS INSPIRED TABLETOP

coco+kelley for c. wonder // citrus inspired tabletop

Lately, I’ve been so inspired by the contrast of bright citrus colors against a backdrop of dramatic black – the pair seem like a perfect way to welcome in this slow-coming spring, don’t you think? So I teamed up with C. Wonder to create a tabletop that beckons diners to a brunch that’s sure to welcome […]

SHOP THE PALETTE :: BRIGHT RED + DEEP OLIVE

Whenever a new fashion season comes along, I try to go through all the shows for trends that really stand out to me – including color. I remember saving this one from the Karen Walker FW13 show purely for that reason – the combination of a deep olive green and bright bright red – offset […]

    So glad you did a post on this! I am sad when I wear this color combo and people say it reminds them of Christmas…such a stunning combination together. I want those gloves and those cords now!!!

      people lack imagination sometimes ;) i think wearing it out of season is easier – the closer it gets to christmas, the harder it is to pull off without people thinking it somehow looks ‘holiday’. forget ‘em!

SHOP THE PALETTE :: LAPIS + OLIVE

frank roop living room

This palette has been a long-time favorite of mine. I’ve seen it in quite a few variations – usually in interiors – and it always feels full of energy, without being too loud… I only have one rule when it comes to these colors … I much prefer them in luxe fabrics and classic forms. […]

GO FOR THE GREEN… SOFA.

In the beginning of the year, I avoided writing anything about emerald green. I’m still not really into this whole ‘color of the year’ thing. But – if we’re being honest – there’s one area in which I’m completely infatuated with this rich shade… The green sofa. I’ve been collecting images for a while now of these […]

    Yay for the IKEA versions of things! You really can create that look with that IKEA sofa. I am all about white walls and I think this may have helped me find just the right color sofa to go with it. THanks!

    Definitely the one by Nicole. I adore how it glams up a black and white scheme, while not completely screaming for attention. I’m with you have a big crush on the velvet green sofa!

      Cathy, you’re so right! I just had the West Elm tufted settee you’re speaking of delivered last Saturday, and it is a stunning “Moss” green!! The photo posted above of the W.E. Moss Green settee is way too light and doesn’t do it justice. The way it appears in the catalog is very true to the actual color. Super comfy to lounge on, too ;)

    I’ve had a love affair happening with green sofas for awhile now (long before it was the color of the year.) I just put in an order for a sofa with velvet green upholstery (not as grass green as the images above), and I am excitedly waiting for it to arrive. I think it’s the perfect burst of happy color for the rainy, gloomy Washington days that are coming.

    Now you made me dreaming about green velvet sofa :) I love the combination of the green sofa with the pink armchairs symmetrically positioned on the sides and picture collage on the wall. Ahhh, can I move there? Kay xx

    Green is a “tough one”…there are so many undertones (blue, yellow, etc) so…until you see it “in person” it’s a tough one. franki

SUNSET MAGAZINE’S IDEA HOUSE 2013 :: SEABROOK

sunset magazine idea house brian paquette master bath

A couple of weeks ago, after having traveled from San Francisco to Las Vegas, then back home for a photo shoot, I hopped in the car on Thursday morning to head out for a little road trip to the Washington coast. For months my dear friend and interior designer, Brian Paquette, had been hard at […]

    Can you tell me more about the bench-like coffee table with the orange try on top in the living room? I really like that it’s a cushy option to put one’s feet up!

    Hey Cassandra! Wow I LOOOOOOVE the coral + emerald! Hi5 Brian! Am curious about the pale greyish-blue paint color (in the shot with the West Elm Parsons desk)… do you know what it is?

    Thanks so much in advance! xx, Stephanie

    You captured the home so beautifully, Cass! Thanks so much for making the drive up. It was great to toast the project with you. (p.s. Sorry for the delay! Summer travel has me a bit behind on my thank you’s)
