THE EDIT // MAY

the-may-edit-from-coco-kelley

It’s funny to see how tastes and styles evolve, isn’t it? When I first started this blog it was very much based in Hollywood Glam – which made sense for 2007. Now that we’re approaching our 9 year anniversary (!!!) my how the pendulum has swung! Some of that, of course, is simply time. Right […]

    There’s a feature in French Elle that shows a classic piece of clothing–a jean jacket, for example–with photos from their archives over decades. It’s amazing how some things really hold up. The same with decor. I aim for something that isn’t going to scream 2016 in 5 or 10 or 15 years (the subway tile might do it….sigh). Better to have the trendiness be in the small details that change in and out, rather than the big things that in principle should last a lifetime.

    Congrats on all the exciting adventures ahead, but I totally get you – they are adventures that will have serious ups with some downs along the way. My organizational life changed seriously when I bought my first Day Designer last year.

    Hopefully without sounding narcissistic, here’s a post I wrote about my love for it, along with my top organization tips: http://www.julesdutravail.com/blog/2015/11/28/the-organization-techniques-that-changed-my-life?rq=organization.

    And PS – Moleskin has a Wedding Journal that makes that organization so much more pleasant and creative! 🙂

    I adore how the dated “non design” chair, a la Frasier, gives the beautiful sitting room both

    humour & comfort & prevents the design elements from becoming pretentious. This is one

    is going straight on my pinterest board !

    Thanks Cassandra.

RECIPE :: RHUBARB ORANGE AND THYME CROSTINI

rhubarb orange and thyme crostini recipe | paola thomas for coco kelley

Rhubarb is always a spring and summer favorite for desserts and drinks, but did you know you can also use rhubarb in savory dishes?
