BUT I WANT IT NOW :: BALLY SS15

Bally_003_1366

When I saw the first images from this collection I knew two things for certain… 1. I need that green coat in my life. and 2. There’s no way this could be a Spring collection! Ok, so maybe the white pants and open toes were a little bit of a give away. But seriously, I don’t […]

    This Bally collection is beautiful!
    The rich colours do make it look more like an autumn/winter collection, but they do make it stand out.
    With great styling and simple lines, the shoes and bags are key!
    Lovely!

A TOAST TO BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS WITH PERRIER-JOUËT

coco kelley Perrier-Jouët_5

I was one of those girls growing up who had my entire wedding planned in her mind by the age of 15. And amongst the many details from tear sheets (because, you know, this was before pinterest), one piece that has always been unwavering in the scene I’ve set in my mind is the presence of Perrier-Jouët champagne set at the […]

    I would give them to my best friend, Jenn, who is getting married in Tuscany this fall as a token of celebration not only on their wedding day but to celebrate each and every day of their happily ever after.

    Those glasses are beautiful! I have a big move to celebrate soon, and after drinking champagne from water glasses for almost a year (ugh), it would be so much more special to toast with these.

    those glasses are absolutely gorgeous! I’m a big believer in using our best drink and dinnerware for any and every occasion (because what occasion when you’re sharing food and drinks with your favorite people/person isn’t a special one?) and these would certainly be a perfect addition :)

    I would add these to the backyard dinner party I’m going to host for my closest friends in a few months. Peony centerpieces, lace doilies for place mats, lights hanging in the tree… I was planning on DIYing some thrift store plates and glasses.. but these champagne flutes will be so much better!

    I would love to give these beautiful champagne flutes to my twin sister who is getting married in November! They would make the most perfect personal, unique and memorable wedding gift! And I might have to insist that she use them for the head table at the wedding so I can partake as the maid of honor!!

    This is the first I’ve heard of Perrier-Jouët. I’m so blown away. I’m not the biggest champagne drinker, but I may have just been converted! Sadly I’ve already had my wedding, but I’d love for my sister in-law to use them at hers this fall!!

    Eeee! This is so fun and those glasses are stunning. My husband and I need an excuse to get a babysitter and have a night away. With a 15 month old it doesn’t happen often, but it is so often needed! Our anniversary is coming up and this would be an amazing addition! <3

    I would put these to use in special company, under the canopy of oak trees in a green grove in the country. We would toast to summer’s bounty, cheer’s to our 6th wedding anniversary and celebrate being 2 years leukemia-free! Of course, we would use them again and again for such celebrations- those glasses are made for happiness :)

    Those glasses are absolutely beautiful. They remind me of some of the stunning glasswares my grandmother use to use when hosting an intimate gathering. She had the most beautiful taste of course! I would split the glasses up into three sets. I’d keep one set for myself for my big day, which isn’t in the near future but my heart knows it’ll happen one day. I’d give another set to my best friend of 20 years who is getting married soon. Her wedding is going to be a beautiful garden wedding, so these would be perfect for the toast. As for the last set, I would give them to my mom in hopes that when she finds somebody worthy of loving her she can use them at a wedding of her own!

    What beautiful, whimsical glasses! I would gift these to my best friend who just finished her stint as the most outstanding maid of honor I could ever ask for. I’ve been trying to think of something very special to give her that would show my great thanks for her support as I start my marriage, and I think these would be a wonderful gift along with a fabulous bottle of bubbly. I hope we can toast to many more happy occasions with these in the future!

    You have a lovely, romantic vision! My son and his fiancé will be married at the end of July…His 2nd marriage and her 1st. She is the polar opposite of a ‘Bridezilla! They are doing everything themselves, including building a beautiful patio(themselves!)so the small family-only ceremony can be at their sweet new home, before the ‘friends’ party at a different location. They are on a budget but are amazingly creative, and so happy.. I can’t think of lovelier splurge and surprise for them than this! Thanks!

    Ohhhh I’ve always loved that design on the bottle and having it on glassware would be incredible. It would go beautifully with our china pattern which was my parents’ set that they passed down.

SUMMER REDECORATING WITH SERENA & LILY

indoor outdoor inspiration1

I think I mentioned in my loft inspiration post how much I really want the space to have this urban escape kind of vibe – a little bohemian, but more about feeling like you’ve just walked into a totally different space than you would expect in a brick loft in the city. Naturally, I’ve been […]

    I love, love your Urban Oasis mood board. The table and chairs in the bottom picture are gorgeous. Simple yet serene. It almost says “Beachy Chic” to me. You could still mix in some green if you decided to go in this direction. Looking forward to pics of the finished loft! Have a beautiful week.

      Thanks Tammie! I’m leaning more towards the Urban Oasis board myself – I cannot wait to share the loft once it’s all ready! Giving myself lots of time to get it perfect this time around, and it feels good to really think through the design process!

      Reply
  2. Dania Codling

    My favorite design style in the universe is the Tuscan style and color palette. Rusts, and beige’s and deep reds with earthy/pea greens. So even though your Urban Oasis has more of a tropical rather than Tuscan feel I still gravitate toward that peaceful and easy going yet fun and classy look that it brings.

    I also think that it plays along with the city mentality perfectly. The way that it is very modern with the neutral colors and small but bold accents. The whites and beige’s also open up the space alot more rather than a dark green making it look more enclosed. The urban oasis gives the loft a really professional, fresh look while adding, like you said, some foreign spice to it.

    The question comes down to this: would you rather have an all around eclectic look that’s bold and makes a HUGE statement, or would you rather go for a clean cut, put together look that still has the potential to be played up?

    You can always add more, but you can’t take away after it’s done ;)

SETTING THE TABLE :: A MOROCCAN BRUNCH FOR EASTER

If there’s one thing ya’ll should know about me by now when it comes to my tabletops, it’s that we rarely do anything too conventional around here.

    This Easter tabletop pulled a few heartstrings for me and really brought me back to Easter dinners (that would happen at 2pm in my family) at my Polish grandmother’s house. She had a blue tablecloth much like that and would set the table in her beautifully patterned flatware. It was simple, cozy yet so thoughtfully put together. I love what you did here and thanks for invoking some warm memories for me.
