IN THE DETAILS :: RESTAURANT EDITION

in-the-details-ideas-to-steal-from-restuarnt-design-coco+kelley_2

Whenever I’m in a bit of a design funk, I turn my sights away from residential interiors and look for inspiration elsewhere: namely hospitality design. Spaces that aren’t meant to be lived in are ‘allowed’ to take a bit more risk, and therefore are way more interesting! And since I’m gathering ideas for our studio space and my kitchen […]

IN THE DETAILS :: 10 WAYS TO ADD UNEXPECTED COLOR

10-ways-to-add-unexpected-color-to-your-home-via-coco-kelley

It’s funny how many people will claim they love color, and want to use more of it in their home, but then when faced with the reality of bold blue walls or citron sofas, they back away because – let’s be honest – color like that is quite the commitment. So for you wanna-be embracers of bold, here […]

    I just love these ideas! The door and windowframe are on my top-list. I’ll keep them in mind as soon as I move into my new home!

    Have a lovely day!

    Wow..some really different ideas. Love the painted interior door idea as well as the mini wall. I am looking with a more critical eye at my house to find a spot to incorporate some of these.

    I definitely don’t shy away when it comes to color. I love adding bright and bold furniture and decor to my home. I am totally loving the idea of painting furniture trims and windows bold colors too. Got to give that one a shot.

    Great examples. Using a neon accent color looks amazing in an otherwise neutral room. I especially love the orange accent on the bench and the brightly painted mini wall. I’ve been searching for mini walls to paint here too.

      Kaitlyn – thank you for pointing this out! I usually so good about crediting images in my posts – must have hit the publish button a little too quick on this one. I will update it asap with sources.

IN THE DETAILS :: FLOATING FURNITURE

industrial8

When designing a space for myself or clients, I always start with the basics, and then – as things build a bit more – look at places to add unique twists. Sometimes the creativity comes out of necessity, like… say a poorly placed window… Or maybe the sink was put there first? Either way, I […]

    I love floating furniture – it’s a great way to add a piece you wouldn’t ordinarily be able to fit in a small space – but that last floating natural wood nightstand is amazing!! I don’t know that I’d want to put a water glass on it either, but it’s beautiful!

    Love the hanging mirror. I’m going to try that but hang a pretty mirror in front of the ugly medicine cabinet in my apartment. Thanks.

    Such a great idea! The floating mirror in the bathroom is perfect. The floating antique cabinet in the kitchen has me really thinking about doing that in my next kitchen!! And the brass hardware and green cabinets in that kitchen made my heart skip a couple beats. I love your blog! If I may, I recently launched an interior blog (decorenvy.blogspot.com) and would love/be so honored if you dropped by and took a peek. Thanks a bunch! xo, Yelda
