ROOM OF THE WEEK :: WHITE + WORLDLY

hannah_blackmore_photography_adorehomemagazine_interior_photography_wedding_nest_1321

You know how I love me some fresh white walls, warm, natural materials, and a curated, global vibe… So you know that I loved this room from the second I saw it! It’s a great example of mixing woods and wovens in different textures, and also a great layout for an open floor plan or […]

    Hi, Cassandra, love your blog! It is always the first one I check everyday. You mentioned in your post that this particular room reminded you of your loft space. I was thinking that in your current dining room (which you are redecorating) that you could get inspiration from this space as well. You said in an earlier post that you weren’t sure if you will keep the wood table or switch it out for the marble-topped one.I instantly thought that you could paint your wood table’s legs white like the one in the photo to lighten up the space a bit.

      Nice idea Michelle! I hadn’t thought of that, and I’m not sure my boyfriend would go for it since it’s his table… but worth being an option! We’ve also discussed putting a marble top on the current table, but the problem is that he really loves the texture of the top, so that’s out. I’d almost rather take the top of his and put it on an industrial base that’s powdercoated white. Could be a cool mix!

ONE ROOM CHALLENGE :: WEEK 3!

coco kelley dining room with blue walls rustic table and tulips

There’s always that lull when designing a room that’s the ‘sit and wait’ period. And my friends, we have entered it. In the past few weeks orders have been placed, and now I’m just waiting for everything to arrive! The roman shades, the chandelier, the new console (marble!) and some other surprises… west elm chandelier […]

    I’m SO in love with your art choice & I’ve always been obsessed with those SL stools. I’m a huge fan of dash & albert rugs, when I’ve used the diamond pattern it almost has a sheen to it which I think is so pretty, since you have stripes on the chairs I love the idea of the graphic diamond pattern! The space is coming together beautifully!

    I own rug #2 in the smallest size, and use it as a bathmat. I love it for how I use it, but don’t think that you’ll like the thickness of the yarns in a dining room. It just feels REALLY casual, and I imagine scooting chairs across it would be a pain. I would advise against this choice, even though I do like the product.

    Hi there!

    I am not against getting a deep clean on the original rug you had. The rich pink with the sea blue would be a beautiful, unexpected combination. Give it less of a nautical feel.
    My sister has a dining room with that exact look and it is stunning. May have to send pics your way for inspiration!

    I have used the D&A rugs many times….the other commenter is right that they are thick and do tend to stretch and wrinkle. If you do get one make sure to get a really good pad. I am partial to the OKL rug but then I did not hate your original one!

    Love the ‘coming soon’ mood board! It all works beautifully together! ANd though all the options you put up for the rug are great, we think number 4 would look beautiful with your design!

    I followed your link for the Serena & Lily stools. Were they actually $800.00 each? I did not see a sale nor pink.

    I love how things are turning out – and I’m so glad you managed to sneak in a little marble! I think the art is a beautiful piece. The pink touches really soften the room and those stools will really bring out the color and soften the room up even more. The framing of the art really makes it the focal point though – I’m so glad you went with a beautiful wood rather than a standard black! As for the rug, I initially thought #4 would work best, but the more I think about it, the more I’m kind of leaning towards #3, surprisingly. It’s simple, neutral, but still offers a little more, I don’t know…oomph without taking away from anything else. Add a few quirky accessories and some greenery and the room could go a cool boho glam. Looking forward to next week’s updates!

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 4.9

Today the sun is shining like it’s spring, and in honor of that little fact, this week my favorite room is an outdoor patio space full of insanely gorgeous texture. This ‘room’ belongs to Annemette Beck, an amazing textile designer (hence the gorgeous wall hanging). She is one of the few artists and designers commissioned by the […]

THIS ‘N THAT :: BREAKFAST NOOK PAIRINGS

This weekend our design planning for the new house began to take shape. (In case you’re catching up on the news, I moved into my boyfriend’s home just a few weeks ago!) Of all the rooms in the house, I can already tell you that my favorite is going to be what I’m calling the breakfast […]

    Love all the choices but that marble topped wood table paired with a ghost chair is such a fun mix…and practical too with that top!

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 2.19

With my impending trip to Marrakesh at the end of the week, it’s safe to say I have Moroccan style on the brain. While I will admit that I am thiiiiiis close to refusing to order another Beni Ourain rug for a client, there is a way to infuse Moroccan style into a room that still feels […]
