CASS’ KITCHEN :: WATERMELON + COCONUT CRÈME

watermelon and coconut creme recipe cocokelley1

If you’ve been following my adventures the last few days, you know that I’ve been touring around through the Okanagan Valley in B.C. and by touring I mean eating and drinking to my heart (and belly’s) content.  I can’t wait to share more from the trip with you all (soon soon!) but in the meantime, […]

HOUSE TOUR :: A WHARF WEEKEND GETAWAY

3.nocrop.w1800.h1330

I can hardly believe it’s nearly Labor Day weekend. The true mark of the end of summer, I’m determined to make it count, so we’ve been hunting around a bit for last-minute cabins and weekend getaway spots that we can at least take a little day trip to. But if I were on the east […]

    Love it! kitchenette – (1) countertop surface? is it zinc? (2) compact stove – searching for one for guest house and reading mixed reviews for some brands- what company makes the stove? Thanks so much!

      Kathy – I have no idea to either question! If it doesn’t tell me in the article, we’re both outta luck. You can try and see if you can get more info from the original article (linked to in the post) or from the designer? Thanks!

SAY ‘BON VOYAGE’ TO SUMMER WITH AN OVERBOARD NAUTICAL PARTY

coco kelley bon voyage to summer party1

The sad truth about this summer is a) it went entirely too fast and b) I spent far too little of it on a boat. Which may explain why I felt the need to bid the sunshine goodbye with an over-the-top nautical party. It also may have had something to do with my obsession with bejeweled life-size […]

    I love the overboard (no pun intended)!! theme of this party x
    Those bejewelled lobsters are so cute and the nautical flags do make a great graphic on the invites!
    It looks like fun! I hope there were no men overboard!!

    I am old enough to remember “Overboard” and many of its predecessors!!! That was a greatly fun movie, and yes…I can totally imagine Goldie’s character dining in this fashion aboard her yacht! Heck…I can see ME dining aboard my imaginary yacht!!! :-)

    I really like the mix of colors and textures on this table, as well as the “bling” that abounds!!! My kind of table!!! That anchor is perfect, too, as a part of the centerpiece! The invitations are top notch, bar none!!! And the fanciful straws just take the cake. If you’re gonna do it, DO IT…right??!??!

    VERY cool! The ultimate in posh nautical!

CASS’ KITCHEN :: SUMMER WATERMELON SALAD

summer watermelon salad recipe cocokelley3

Some of us are blessed with the ability to open the fridge, pull out a few ingredients and whip up something decently (or sometimes surprisingly!) tasty. Growing up with a chef for a father, I’d like to think that I inherited a bit of this ability. And it seems - judging by requests on instagram when I […]

    Love this salad. Looks delicious. I make a similar one with black olives in place of the blackberries. The salt in the olives compliments the watermelon well.

    I’m reall into watermelon at the moment!
    As I live in italy its so hot and watermelon is so refreshing!
    This combination looks amazing with the feta and mint. I don’t know if I can get blackberries where I am, is there another berry that would work well?
    Many thanks!

AUGUST MOODBOARD //

cocokelley-august-moodboard

Every year like clockwork, August brings this mix of emotions for me. The anticipation that fall is right around the corner (my favorite season!), along with total panic that summer is almost over. Somewhere in my brain that also means a switchover from light and airy inspiration to something a bit more rich and sultry… Darker tan lines. Deeper colors. Finding […]

    Omg, I just got so excited for fall! I love the deep tones, both for clothing and interiors!

    Love,

      EXACTLY Jamie and Cassandra! I love saturated colors… This mood board has me wanting to get on a plane to exotic locales immediately!

      Jamie will you be at What’s New What’s Next at 200 LEX again this year? I’d love to see you again there (we met at the event a few years ago at Profiles)! I’ll likely be there again but mostly hanging out in Profiles to show off the new pieces in our collection.

      Cassandra, so nice to meet you at the GRAY event last week. I hope our paths cross again soon as well!

      Happy waning days of summer to you both!

      Best,
      Sara Wise

    I love the images and colours that you have used on this board.
    Capturing darker tones and shades but keeping the freshness of August.
    The rich aubergine of that house colour against the palm tree is beautiful and the Nicole Bentley shoot for Marie Claire is stunning!
    Roll on winter!!
