Upon researching what these thoughtfully designed hallways are called, there was no right or wrong answer. Hallway, corridor, entryway, vestibule, enfilade are all options but vary depending on their location within the home. For the purpose of this article, a statement hallway is a long hallway with either a wall of windows or a wall of windowed doors on either side of the hall.

Today is officially the last day of summer! I can’t believe summer is over. I’ve been so busy running errands and on daily Zoom meetings with the Chirpyest team. September has just slipped away from me. Now that fall is here, I figured it’s time to do some fall shopping. So many brands have been launching their new Fall furniture collections. One of my favorite brands for fall furniture is Lulu & Georgia. They have a great selection of stylish items. My friend is redecorating her living room and I sent her the photo above as inspiration. I keep seeing these black woven chairs on Instagram. They’re simple and complement almost everyone’s home style. If you’re looking to splurge on great pieces for your home, then check out some of my favorite items I pulled below. The best part is that I received a discount code! Woohoo!

Somehow it’s already September! It felt like just yesterday I was plotting out some summer plans and now it is over! Things are moving so quickly.  I am already seeing Halloween pumpkins and costumes in stores and soon I know I will be seeing holiday decor! Here we go.

As we leave summer behind and ease into autumn, there are the Labor Day sales to look forward to this weekend.  I am not a huge shopper but after taking a look at some of the sales, I may turn into one.  One of my favorite brands is Veronica Beard so I’m super excited to buy these jeans with a stripe down the leg that I’ve been eyeing for a few weeks now. Some of my favorite home decor brands like Pottery Barn, Lulu & GeorgiaABC Carpet & Home, and more are having amazing sales.

Kitchen trends are changing again and now, anything but a white kitchen is in. While white kitchens are still incredibly popular and have been over the last few years, it seems like alternative kitchen color palettes are everywhere. Navy, taupe, beige, green, you name it, it’s in, and they are here to stay.

The kitchen above, designed by Shavonda Gardner, is beautifully unique. Shavonda, a California based blogger and interior designer, used deep red cabinetry, dark grey soapstone counters, khaki colored ceramic brick tailes for the backsplash, amazing yellow floral wallpaper, gold sconces, and a gold pot holder rod across the wall from end to end. She mixes and matches colors that aren’t normally used in the kitchen. Shavonda’s kitchen is chic, stylish, bold and totally not white. This is my pick for “stand out kitchen of the year” actually. I love it.

With that said, we now bring you more not-so-white-kitchens – a trend that is taking over kitchen design.

Some of us are going back to the office for work. That means it’s time to put the sweats away (even though we don’t want to). If you’re anything like me, then loungewear and sweats have been on rotation throughout the last year and a half. It’s been nice not having to put myself together on a daily basis for work. However, I do miss my morning routines. Picking out an outfit and brewing my favorite cup of coffee everyday helped get me in the mindset for work. It’s hard to show off a cute outfit via Zoom. Since you’re going back to work, why not turn your office into your own personal runway? We’ve been in quarantine for a long time so why not make everyday a cute fashion moment.

If you think your workwear needs an upgrade, then don’t worry the COCOCOZY team has got you covered. Here are COCO’s picks that you need in your closet to create the perfect outfits for when you go back to work.
