Room of the Week :: 5.27

swedish eat in kitchen in white with brass pendants via coco kelley

The eat-in kitchen is not a space we normally see highlighted here on the Room of the Week. While they tend to be absolutely charming, I don’t think I’ve ever seen one as polished as this! So, of course the old-world herringbone floors, high ceilings and beautiful molding, punctuated by fresh white cabinets, brass hardware […]

    Very nice. Many things to copy….I have a gigantic kitchen in our renovation, with a gigantic fireplace and 14-foot ceilings. There’s a “confiserie” or built-in cupboard, so we don’t need a lot of storage. Keeping it simple, with a big farm table. I like the white look here, and the fridge, and the pictures…..

ROOM OF THE WEEK 5.5

minimal airy dining room and living area - harbour house on est living via coco kelley

Our Room of the Week today is basically one big deep, relaxing ‘everything is gonna be okay’ breath of fresh air. It’s also making me want to line my whole home in floaty sheer white curtains… The whole home is quite minimal, but certainly doesn’t lack character or its own kind of warmth in the sense […]

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 2.11

romantic dining room in pale peach and blue with gorgeous wood floors and dramatic chandelier via coco kelley3

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.

ONE ROOM CHALLENGE – THE REVEAL!!!

cassandra lavalle dining room for the one room challenge coco kelley_1

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?

    1. Cassandra LaValle Post author

      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’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!

ONE ROOM CHALLENGE :: WEEK 5!

one room challenge - console1

I cannot believe we’re in the last week of the One Room Challenge! So I guess this means that in one week this room will be completely DONE? Well… that we will see about. I literally finally pulled the trigger on a rug yesterday and I’m already having second thoughts. I may have to purchase a back-up […]
