One Room Inspiration :: Classic Beach Cottage in Blue + White

a palm beach living room with an east coast beach vibe in layers of blue and white | via coco kelley

After returning from a beach vacation last week, I feel inspired and creatively rejuvenated, but even more so- I’m itching to bring a little bit of the coastal vibe back home this summer. Sooo, naturally I thought I’d share a charming beach cottage living room as a source of inspiration and items to get the look at home! This […]

    I have always been a sucker for those matchstick shades. Had them in an apartment until I moved. Had them on my pergola (that didn’t work so well–they harbored bugs and didn’t filter the sun enough). I still love them.
    That driftwood thing is pretty cool, hanging from the ceiling like a natural mobile.

ROOM OF THE WEEK 5.19

a playful vignette in black and white stripes makes this living room feel like a cabana | room of the week via coco kelley

Come summer time, I’m sure we all wish we were living in a cabana… well, this living room certainly comes close. With soaring tent-like ceilings, and plenty of black and white stripes, the playful space lends a sunny yet styled disposition… There are a few key things about this space that called to me when […]

    I really like those sconces in the third picture.
    The zebra rug/zebra picture and black-and-white theme is a bit too much. It feels like they said, what else can we do in stripes? One zebra per room unless you’re under age 3. And if there’s a zebra, then let it be the only stripes.
    Of course, if they love it, good for them. Just my personal preference.

Woah. Where did March go you guys? As I was writing the date for today’s post I realized how this month just flew by! There’s been so much going on around here, which may be why I’m craving a more minimalist interior as our Room of the Week today… This bedroom belongs to one of my favorite […]

    It’s hard not to love a room with a pool just outside the door.
    Have you ever showered in one of those tubs? Total pain. I get that they’re pretty, but they are not practical.

    I looked at the full story referenced here but can’t find the name of the piece or artist who did the large scale gray piece in the first two photos. Does anyone know?

HOW TO STYLE :: A BOHEMIAN LIVING ROOM MAKEOVER

Since returning from Morocco with lots of treasures, I’ve been wanting to have friends over to put them to good use! But our average living room scene just wouldn’t do these items justice – I wanted to give the space a bohemian makeover so my girls could experience a taste of Morocco themselves! So, together with a little […]

    Great transformation! I have treasures from travels all over, and they really catch people’s eye. Carved chairs from Lamu. A three-foot-tall fisherman statue from Santo Domingo. A Dogon door from Mali. Textiles from Turkey and Morocco. They aren’t what you expect amid the French antiques–yeah, you can go boho with antiques as well as with MCM 🙂

    While I would never consider my style Bohemian, I absolutely LOVE that the ‘collected chic’ look is in style. I traveled all over with my flight attendant mom picking up beautiful pieces, and sometimes I feel weird putting them out because it might look too busy. But here you made it look so warm and inviting! I will have to un wrap those moroccan tea glasses I bought and put them on display soon! Thank you!

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 3.18

classic blue and white apartment by william mclure via coco kelley

I’m always so refreshed when I stumble upon a space I’ve never seen before, and this one in particular is calling my name today with its blue and white palette that feels classic and fresh with a hint of tropical …. Not to mention that sweet pup who obviously just decided to stay put throughout the […]

    It’s so interesting the way they have two very different window treatments so close together. But it works in a beachy way, as you say. I love blue and white…screams summer.

    Stunning room! A little too busy for my taste but well-done all the same. Sooooo lets talk about that ginormous live? turtle under the coffee table? What in tarnation is going oh here? Either that’s a family pet or the strangest prop I’ve ever seen!!?

    It is overwhelming. It is like they try to show everything. I love the blue touch but there are so many things around that interfere with design. Just too many book, albums and so on… It makes me think, they miss a shelve.

    The tropical notes in this space are refreshing and the blue tones make you feel as if you’re on an island. The white walls also create a light, airy feel. These are some great ideas to incorporate in our own decorating schemes.
