This post has been sitting in my inbox for awhile.  Not real confident about pictures of me on the blog but since our mission here at COCOCOZY this year is to include a little more about fashion and style, you will see a little more of me from time to time.  This year we are happily focused on ALL things style and lifestyle (decor, entertaining, fashion, art, travel) – bringing pretty inspiration to you and hopefully giving you good ideas for all aspects of your life.   (BTW…I say “we”, because I have a small little staff  helping me at our small little offices in Beverly Hills with all things COCOCOZY including the blog and product line).

Okay…for today’s post we are exploring a few perfect printed dresses.  Here’s why.  I would not say I dress in a drab way…but I do kind of dress in a drab formulaic way when it comes to pattern and color.  I get into a routine. Solid colored pants pants/or jeans, solid colored top, khaki jacket, black Rag & Bone open toe booties is a kind of staple…or a solid colored dress, solid green skirt, solid blue jumper.  Lately, I have been mixing things up with a top of a different solid color, maybe a stripe here or there, or switching out the shoes for a pair of YSL sling back heels or some cute Aquazzura sandals.  Then came this dress pictured above….

I know.  It is Spring.  Who talks about velvet in the spring?  Not anyone I know.  Today, here is a first…a little bit of velvet for the home and for your wardrobe.

I think a top with a touch of velvet for spring or a fresh white room with a velvet accent chair all work even as the weather gets warmer.  Check out a few ways to use velvet accents at home and in your closet!

With summer almost here, there will be little need for a fire burning in your living room hearth.  Why not use your fireplace as a great decor opportunity?  Adding some cut wood, candles, vases, plants or even books to a fireplace can create an easy but impactful “style moment” to a living space.

Time to clean out the ashes and make way for some bold and creative fireplace decor ideas!

I am so proud of this little makeover design project I have been working on for the past few weeks. It’s a cute little California girls’ room makeover for my dear friends Barry and Samantha Nugent’s adorable daughters C and S.  The mom, Samantha, is an amazing realtor with a very good sense of style.  My design challenge was to create a shared room for two girls 12 and 7 years of age that they both could grow into – a room young enough for the 7 year old but adult enough for the preteen…and most importantly, a room their mom liked too!

For this fun decorating project, I partnered with BEHR® Paint to create a delightful girls’ bedroom. I wanted to use paint creatively in the space to make big impact.  My “clients” had one desire…”use pink”!  With that in mind, the first step to this room makeover was picking the right color…

I am so proud to present my latest rug collection.  This year I bring you COCOCOZY Color Block Rugs!  I was inspired last year when I did this post on color blocking in fashion and in the home.  Noticed the trend of using big solid blocks of color had been used on the runway or in paint colors or even drapes, but never in rugs…so I decided to change that with this amazing line of customizable rugs.  Custom wool rugs that can be delivered in as little as 45 days!
