Spotted this pretty monochromatic summer house in Auckland.  The perfect mix of neutral colors – greys, black, whites, tans and a boho vibe.  My kind of beach house.  Only problem it is all the way in New Zealand!  My friend is going to New Zealand next week…maybe he can find this house and bring it back for me?? Has anyone ever attempted to import a whole house.  Will have the COCOCOZY team look into this as an option.

Anyhooooo….here is a tour…

When you don’t have a house it is easy to dream about any and all options you might put in your future dream house. This is my state of mind. After selling my tiny little cottage in the Hollywood Hills around the holidays a few months ago, I now have so many options…too many options!  Everything is a possibility as I look for my next spot.

Today the option is black pendant lights for the kitchen or dining room.

A friend of mine recently said they were not a fan of plants inside the house. I highly disagree! I love the idea of using a plant to enhance a room’s decor. Houseplants can add great visual texture to a room and they help purify the air. Studies have shown that plants can have a destressing effect too.

From a tall fiddle leaf fig or palm tree, to some creeping English Ivy, to some low maintenance Aloe Vera, a rubber plant, some bamboo…all good options for inside the house…

Today I show you some ways to style plants in your home! Bring on the plants please!

13 Beautiful Double Doors

February 22, 2017

I love beautiful double door.  When I am in France each summer visiting my mother’s amazing rental apartment in Paris, I am reminded that my dream house must have a double doors somewhere. Mom’s Parisian summer flat has tall ceilings and glorious double doors leading from the dining room to the living room.  Classic, tall, with molding, striking substantial knobs and some door trim that stands out.

Would love to have interior double doors leading to a bedroom or dining room. Something so elegant about flinging open two doors to a room.

Here are 13 double doors I am loving. A little design inspiration for a Tuesday!

Okay…we are not too far from Spring. My tip of the day is that now is the time to shop for the perfect suede boot for next season.

I have several pairs of suede boots and suede booties…they are my default “go to” for fall and winter wear. My bestie AM always gives me cute things when I visit. Last time I was in NY at her place, she decided to give me a beautiful pair of over the knee blue Stuart Weitzman suede boots she had bought but had never worn. They rock. Now time to hunt for some more to add to the boot collection…this time on sale!

It is a designer dining room recreate kind of Friday today on the the blog!

This well styled and very achievable dining room is our feature room today.  Fresh, bright, not over done, with some character. It is from the prolific self-made social media savvy designers Syd and Shea McGee of Studio McGee.  I like interior design that you can actually imagine people using on a day to day basis. Pretty and attainable home decor is always welcomed here on the blog! 😉

We are going to give you ideas on recreating this look using some of my own new COCOCOZY rugs!  First, another view of this cute room.

This is the perfect small eat-in kitchen design. Checkered floors, grey cabinets, subway tile backsplash and even a bit of exposed brick in the mix. Details, details, details…the devil is in them!

Most people like open floor plan concept kitchens these days. While I like the idea of eating, cooking and living in the same room, I kind of don’t. 😉 For me, this little well designed galley kitchen works as its own little cooking and dining area. I like.
