Minimal lines and spaces

minimal lines black and white


“You know more than you think you know, just as you know less than you want to know.” Oscar Wilde

I can’t get enough of minimal these days – and black + white is the way to go! Mostly inspired by the first and third photos up there with the clean black lines, it makes for perfect interiors! And for some minimal fashion, continue below to see my favorite picks from Totokaelo.

I’d like to also send out a very special Thank You to all of you, my dear readers + friends! I received so many warm and heart-felt responses from my Q+A with Jacquelyn over at her über lovely blog, Lark & Linen yesterday! It is the overwhelming support from all of you that makes me continue what I do and love what I do here at Coco/Mingo! I am so happy and thankful for all the splendid relationships I have formed and wonderful blogs I am inspired by every single day. Seriously, you guys rock! so Thank You!!! ♥ ♥ ♥

If you haven’t yet read my Bits+Pieces Q+A with Jacquelyn, I invite you to check it out here!

Guest post Lark & Linen_coco and mingo


Hi friends! I’m so excited to be over at Lark & Linen today talking with the wonderfully talented and oh so very lovely Jacquelyn!! I was so happy when she asked me to be a part of her bits & pieces column – she is one of the sweetest people you’ll meet, her blog is so inspirational and at the top of my favorite daily reads (I drool over her beautiful photography and yummy recipes!), and not to mention, isn’t her site design the most gorgeous thing ever?!

Grecian beauty inspiration_coco and mingo


“Do small things with great love.” Mother Theresa

I always relate with that quote by Mother Theresa because I always think that it’s the small things in life that really matter. I’m all about the small details and I sure do appreciate them in return!

I saw that detail of Proenza Schouler’s Spring 2014 skirt with the right amount of shimmery pleats and gorgeous crisscross top – and it immediately made me think of a beautiful Grecian getaway and lifestyle. I couldn’t help but catch the travel bug from Corina over at Cocorrina while reading her recent “Travel the World” post! And it’s crazy to say but I’ve never been out of the United States – never! I think it’s about darn time! Greece is definitely at the top of my list, along with Bali, New Zealand, Italy, and Switzerland!

That beautiful photo of Santorini, Greece was found over at Le Magnifique Blog where you’ll also find a whole series of these stunning photos taken by Bit of Ivory Photography – go check them out here!

Happy Monday and welcome back! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Today is all about starting the week off bright and cheery – you can never go wrong with white, shabby chic, cottage-inspired interiors! Kjerstis Lykke is one of my favorite home interior inspiration blogs to keep up with – the interior spaces (like the 2 featured at the top) always fills me with dreamy stars in my eyes!

Breaking bad series finale_coco and mingo


I usually end the week with my favorite Pins and links but all I’m really interested in right now is the upcoming series finale of Breaking Bad this Sunday!! Yup, I’m one of the many superfans out there so today you’ll just have to endure a Bittersweet and Breaking Bad-ish inspired post. So sorry in advance for the semi-depressing fave-Pins up there. There’s eety beety throwbacks to the show in each of the pins above, so if you get it, Congrats – you’re a superfan!

Any of you guys on the same page as me with having this as like, the best television show out there right now?! I still have a little catching up to do (about 2 episodes) so no spoilers, friends! Anyway, this intense show has got me crying out loud, my anxiety through the roof and my mind racing, but I love it! I sure will miss that Walter White, Jesse Pinkman and Saul Goodman…And to hold all you fellow crazy Breaking Bad fans over until the finale, I’ve got some great links before this bittersweet ending (continue below)
