My Paradissi_guest post_coco and mingo

Hello Coco/Mingo readers! This is Eleni from My Paradissi and I’m happy to fill up for sweet Jess while she’s enjoying her family and friends back at her homeplace.

I know Jessica treats you with softness and brightness through all the amazing images she posts daily and I really didn’t want to go otherwise. When I stumbled upon this beautiful place on the latest issue of Est Magazine I knew I had to show it to you! Check out the sleek surfaces on the walls, floor and cabinetry, the slim metallic furniture mixed with the sturdy wooden ones, the delicate fixtures and the soft textiles, in all sorts of bright hues from white to blush and grays. And, all these just get even more beautiful with the bold green surroundings framed by the large windows. Looks like a perfect dream to live in!

Cool blue holiday decorating

Cool blue holiday via Coco and Mingo

Today I’m officially one year older. Womp womp. I really need to change my attitude from being hesitant of turning one year older to really just embracing it. I’m working through it, okay?! I’ve just got an attachment to my 20′s that I don’t want to give up just yet…the good news is that I don’t feel (or act) like I’m on the tail end of it – that’s all that matters, right?!

Well, now that’s out of the way…Yup, I’m kinda diggin’ this cool blue holiday decorating inspiration! To give it some balance, throw in some splashes of cool red and shiny gold – you seriously can’t go wrong! Because I share my apartment with two other roommates, I don’t really decorate as much as I’d like to (nor do I have the time). My holiday decorations usually just include stringing up some white Christmas lights and we’re good to go! But, I sure would like to dream decorate, if you all don’t mind!

Are you planning on decorating your home this holiday season? Indulge me!

And one last time (I promise!) – for anyone who hasn’t yet entered my Birthday Bash Giveaway, you’ve got 3 days left! Just check out what’s in the prize goody bag below. Good luck to everyone who has already entered, we’ll announce the winner on Monday! You can enter here.

Just look at the photos below, I envy each of those interiors! I mean, who doesn’t want a large vintage map mural for their home?!

Home interiors: Sage green

Thursday, September 12, 2013

sage green home_coco and mingo

Sage green is one of my favorite colors, and what’s best about it is that it pairs amazingly well with both cooler and warmer colors, i.e. blues and/or peachy/pinky-colors (or both!). I am in love with those sage oxfords above via Maryam Nassir Zadeh – I need to get them! My favorite, though, is not how it is worn but how it’s brought into the home – it always brings this clean, laid-back, lazy Sunday afternoon-type vibe to a room, which is my kinda vibe! That interior below is definitely a space that I would love to have in my home (ideally a beachside home) – yup, including that surfboard! …Oh how I miss the ocean!
