ROUNDUP :: 12 AMAZING HALLWAY RUNNERS TO SUIT YOUR STYLE + BUDGET

hallway runner roundup on coco+kelley!

I’m a huge fan of rugs – especially gorgeous runners, with major bonus points for amazing vintage ones. I swap my hallway runner seasonally (because I’m crazy) and it completely changes the appearance of the space. Here’s what my hall currently looks like… but it’s about to be rearranged once again! I’m one that prefers to restyle […]

    Oh my goodness Sarah your hallway is perfection! I adore the rug. We sadly don’t have any spaces in our home where a full runner would work…but definitely saving these in case we want to install one on our stairs someday 🙂

After all, this area should be an interesting reflection of the people inhabiting a home. It’s a place to show off collections and prized pieces gathered […]

    I love all the objects used here, the hand would have totally looked at home here too! I love the knobs used to personalize the bottom part of the builtins! I think I’ve seen them before, are they from Anthro?

MIXING MENSWEAR INTO YOUR HOME

While I realize that my design aesthetic tends to lean a bit more towards the feminine (hi, have you met me?) I do like to keep my interiors balanced with a few ‘masculine’ touches when I can, and I’m particularly fond of using menswear-inspired home decor in doing so… Plus, winter calls for that cozy […]

    I was just looking for ideas for my bachelor pad yesterday, and then your post comes today on man’s style rooms! Wow! My favorite bachelor pad so far is from a young designer Megan Stone. http://thrdesignstudio.com/high-rise-home/ You can see how she uses boomboxes on the wall, flashy metal “skulls,” and inspiration from nightclubs for the bar (not the dull, traditional bar of your parents). The above designs are not masculine enough for my Thai tastes.

    I love the menswear influence too! It can be so beautiful in anchoring a soft pallet. Thanks for sharing this. Love the blog!!!

ROUNDUP :: TRINKET DISHES

trinket dishes cocokelley

If there’s one thing I have more of in my house than pillows, it’s my little menagerie of dishes and boxes to put all of my odds and ends in… Everything from jewelry to buttons finds a home in these little trinket dishes that I’ve collected over the years – some old, some new. Some […]

    These are awesome and I love the idea of giving one of these to complement a piece of jewelry as a gift. Great post!

    Is it okay to want every single one of these dishes? I want to hang them on walls, bedazzle my dresser, or even wear some of them as a necklace!! I’m a trinket girl, and everyone needs a trinket dish in their life.

HOW TO :: STYLE YOUR COFFEE TABLE

how to style your coffee table 6

Now that I’m back from vacation, my big summer project of finishing up my loft continues! I’ve been slowly adding pieces, the latest of which is the perfect coffee table and a few new accessories from HD Buttercup. All of which is a great excuse to give you a peek at how things are progressing, and do a […]

    Great tips! And I especially like the use of the tray, I think that’s exactly what my living room coffee table is missing – thanks for helping me figure that out!

    I love the storage your coffee table offers! I wish I could style my coffee table more often, but my cat is always knocking everything off of it.

    Cassandra, the loft is looking SO good! I am head over heels for your dining room chairs. Green happens to be my youngest son’s favorite color too. We are redoing his room right now and I’ve been looking for green accessories with a masculine touch. Not easy to find. Perhaps I’ll send you a pic once we’re done. And…I have an old sofa that still works but isn’t “me” anymore. I’ve been debating on taking off the back cushions and replacing with comfy pillows instead. You’ve given me the inspiration to move forward! It just may be the facelift it needs.

    Just discovered your blog and I am obsessed! Your sofa is so lovely. Can you share information about the pillows and throw?

    A lovely coffee table set-up. Im English, therefore drink a lot of tea and therefore love the whole coffee/side table thing to allow me to indulge in tea drinking whilst in the lounge!! But, I find they can become so cluttered and messy after a while. I love how you’ve incorporated the items on the table into the design of the whole room. Whilst still having books/mags you’ve also added some lovely features, e.g. I love the tray. It all looks really neat but very stylish too. Thanks for fab ideas on how to incorporate a necessary/useful item as a design feature.

    In love with the chairs around the dining table. Any chance you can point me in the direction of where to find them?
    Thanks!

    Oooh, can you tell us more about the pillows and how you styled the sofa? I love those blue dotted pillows. Will this trick to replace the back pillows work on all types of sofas?
