How To Style A Buzzworthy Caffeination Station

At CoCo Milano’s, we love the whimsical elegance and potential for effortless entertaining of a fully stocked bar cart. However, for us, caffeine is king (after all, the day doesn’t truly start until we’ve had our first sip of java) and the coffee cart is the new bar cart in the home décor scene. Not only does a coffee cart streamline your morning routine by keeping everything you need for the perfect cup o’ joe in one place, it displays all of your caffeine gear in a trendy way. Here are a few tips to style the perfect coffee cart or station:

Of course, you can’t have a coffee station without first finding a cart or other space to store your java. If space is at a premium in your home, carve out a corner of your countertop for all of your coffee essentials. Use a tray on your counter to group the elements of your coffee station together and to decrease clutter.

If you have a little more space in your kitchen, a cart offers the option of portability. At the end of a dinner party, you can move your coffee cart to your guests, allowing them to serve themselves as the party winds down. For added sophistication and a modern look, choose a gold or silver framed cart and add a touch of glamour to your space.

If you don’t plan to move your coffee station, a sideboard, dresser, or even a repurposed bookshelf offers the counter space and drawers or shelves necessary for extra storage. Make sure you have the right amount of storage for your coffee needs. Too much storage space and your cart may look bulky and out of place, but too little space and your cart will look cluttered and anything but chic. Assess how much storage you need before deciding on the right kind of coffee station for you.

When it comes to stocking your coffee cart, you likely already have what you need. Most important, of course, is the coffee machine of your choice. Single serve coffee makers work perfectly or choose a french press for an extra chic look.

Mugs are the crucial vessels for your caffeine. Use your coffee cart or coffee station to display an artsy mug collection, mugs you have collected on your travels, matching mugs for every season, or even mugs you have decorated yourself.  Mugs can provide a pop of color to your space, or they can blend in with your decor for a more refined vibe. In addition to mugs, you will need printed napkins and coasters to set the tone for the space. Finally, store your coffee, tea, stirrers, syrup, sugar, and creamer in stylish containers that perfectly accessorize your cart.

Next, decide how to store your mugs in a chic yet functional way. We love the idea of hanging them from a shelf above your cart to create extra counter space and keep your cart looking clean and simple. If a shelf on the wall isn’t an option because you plan to move your cart around your home, designate a shelf on the cart itself for mug storage.

 

 

A Beautiful Mess

A Beautiful Mess

 

Think of your coffee cart as a vignette in your home. Function is important, but adding a fresh bouquet or plant to your cart brings your style out and adds a touch of whimsy to the design of your cart. Personalize the cart even further with original artwork, a chalkboard in a frame, or stunning photographs. Update your cart seasonally to fit your hosting needs. Add an ice bucket or pitcher for iced coffee or sweet tea in the summer and hot chocolate and marshmallows in the winter. To spice up a party, store Kahlua, Baileys Irish Cream, or your whiskey of choice on your cart to mix with coffee for the ideal after dinner cocktail. Make the cart your own and match it to the décor of the rest of your home for the marriage of functionality and style.

Finally, to really step up your caffeine game, wheel your coffee cart into your master bedroom or bathroom. Enjoy your master suite and your morning routine to the fullest by creating a private oasis that you never have to leave (at least not until you have finished your morning cup of coffee).

Turn Your Backyard Into An Outdoor Oasis

Your backyard is the perfect place to unwind after a long day or to host an outdoor celebration. If you are going to spend a significant amount of time relaxing in your backyard, you will want to make sure it is as comfortable as possible. Here are a few tips to decorate your outdoor space like you would your interiors in order to turn your backyard into a dreamy oasis:

 

Houzz

When designing a cohesive outdoor space, start by defining its function and thinking about how you plan to use your yard. If you plan to spend your summer dining al fresco, design your yard around a large outdoor dining table. If you plan to take long naps in the sun, make sure you carve out a space for a plush seating area. Depending on the space available, consider either planning the entire space around a single function or breaking the space up into separate areas.

 

Houzz

Privacy is key when creating the perfect outdoor space. Making your space feel private and closed off from the rest of the world (or at least your neighborhood) will put you at ease and help you relax. Fences, lattices, pergolas, and garden walls are great ways to ensure privacy. If these structures aren’t an option for you, use tall plants or smaller privacy barriers covered in creeping vines to make your space feel secluded and lush at the same time.

 

Better Homes and Gardens

In addition to providing privacy, foliage enhances the atmosphere of your yard. If you want your space to feel tropical, add exotic plants to your outdoor space to make your backyard feel like you have been transported to your favorite getaway spot.

 

CoCo Milano's

CoCo Milano’s

 

Add drama to your outdoor space with a water feature such as a pond, small rock waterfall, or fountain. The sound of running water makes your yard feel more tranquil while simultaneously blocking out any unpleasant outside noise. Plus, a water feature enhances your decor and makes your backyard look unique.

 

Houzz

Lighting is one of the easiest ways to cast an enchanting spell on your outdoor space. Lighting is both functional and beautiful and instantly boosts the feel of your yard. Plan your lighting based on how you plan to use your space. Highlight a secluded bench, stairs, or a path in your yard with solar accent lights or low-lit lamps. String beautiful bulbs over your seating area for a cozy space or choose a a stunning lighting fixture to hang in a covered outdoor area. You can’t go wrong with a little lighting to set the tone for your oasis.

 

Houzz

A fire pit is the ideal place to bring your friends and family together at the end of the night. Stay warm with fire tables that match the aesthetic of your outdoor space. From cool stone to beautiful metal sculptures, spectacular fire features are a great way to turn your backyard into a stunning, yet cozy locale.

 

CoCo Milano's

To truly upgrade the vibe in your yard, consider investing in outdoor speakers to set the mood in your space and transport you to the oasis of your dreams.

 

Houzz

Add pops of visual interest to your yard with bold colors. Just as you would inside your home, bring color to your outdoor space through throw pillows and cushions. Blooming flowers are another way to naturally adorn your yard with color. For a polished look, focus on two or three colors and design your entire outdoor space with a uniform color scheme.

 

Houzz

Finally, don’t forget to create pockets of shade in your yard for those hot summer days outside. A chic umbrella that matches your color scheme is a great way to provide a touch of shade.

There are many small things you can do to instantly enhance the vibe in your yard. But, most importantly, your outdoor space should have a clear décor scheme and feel private and personal.

Meet April Howland of Howland Studios

CoCo Milano’s is thrilled to host the stunning artwork of April Howland in our showroom. Inspired by nature and animals, April’s paintings are a blend of contemporary and realism. She focuses primarily on her thriving wildlife series and domestic animal portraiture.

 

April Howland

April Howland

 

April was born and raised in Sedona, Arizona. She started drawing at four years old after finding two books on how to draw cats and dogs at a garage sale. She begged her mom to buy the books for her and whenever she wasn’t running around outside, she was inside drawing. She traced the books and drew all over them, taping and stapling the pages back together when they fell apart from use. Growing up, April also had a dog that she picked out of a box of puppies. Her dog quickly became her best friend and a very important member of her family, and so began her love of animals.

As an Arizona native, April spent her childhood hiking and camping with her dad. When she was six years old, she was camping with her dad and her dog. In the middle of the night, a mountain lion roared loudly next to the tent. Based on the tracks outside, her dad believed the mountain lion was drawn to their tent by their dog. The sound of the mountain lion’s roar was so primal that April would never forget the sound or the feeling of being so close to wildlife. Looking back now, April recognizes that she is constantly looking for that moment again in her work and her travels. Today, her work captures those moments when she finds herself face to face with wildlife.

April started her journey as a graphite sketch artist. She loved playing with values and was drawn to the beauty of black and white. Her art teacher in high school encouraged her to use color but April resisted. In college, April pursued a degree in graphic design and finally began to work in color. The more she used color in her artwork, the more she grew to appreciate the vibrancy and richness of it. April’s favorite movie is The Wizard of Oz, which, much like April’s own journey through her art, moves from black and white to vibrant color, essentially showcasing two movies in one, or, in April’s case, two artistic stories in one. After receiving her degree, April sought out various acclaimed artists and instructors in an effort to hone her fine art skills. Today, April’s love of color and experience with design allows her to create unique, richly colored art pieces that capture the wildlife she so admires.

 

Firestarter | Oil on Canvas | 36x36

April spends as much time in nature as she can. Being outside frees her soul and makes her more creative. In addition to absorbing the natural world outside her window, April travels the globe in search of inspiration.  Her most inspiring trip came when she traveled to Africa. On the trip, she learned about sustainable systems and poverty in the area and visited a bush village with mud huts and thatched roofs. The village was so poor but the people there were so happy. While in the village, April noticed a young boy on a woman’s back. She snapped a photo of the boy and later learned that the boy’s parents had died of AIDS and the woman carrying him had become his caretaker. April painted the scene and auctioned it off in order to donate the proceeds to build a kitchen at the school in the village where many of the children had their only meal of the day. 

On another trip, April visited Alaska to see the salmon run. While there, she walked among the grizzly bears and was shocked when the bears paid no attention to the people. They were only interested in the salmon, in catching their next meal, in survival. Scenes like this, similar to the moment in April’s childhood with the roaring mountain lion, can only be observed through travel. April is fascinated by the fight or flight responses of animals in their natural habitat and how they interact with the world around them. Through her art, she captures these moments to allow others to experience them alongside her. Amazingly, one hundred percent of April’s paintings are of animals she has met in person.

While April finds inspiration through travel, she also loves Arizona and everything it has to offer. This week, she delivered two pieces to the Tempe Public Library where they will hang for six months. The exhibit is called “It’s a Wildlife” and is located in the East Center of the library. Playtime, the 8ft oil on canvas on display at the library is the biggest she has painted in her life. If you visit the library and post a picture with the pieces on social media, April will send you a little gift. April’s first solo gallery show, “My Wild Kingdom,” is also currently on display at the Beals & Co. Showroom in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

April is committed to giving back to local animal rescues and zoos. She is constantly looking for philanthropic ways to give back to nature and to help the animals she loves watching and painting thrive.

 

Toffee | Oil on Canvas | 30x30 | Custom Pet Portrait

Stop by CoCo Milano’s today to see April’s original pieces, giclees, and Howland Studios throw pillows showcasing her artwork. April also specializes in custom pet portraits in which she visits a family to take photos, if possible, and then interviews the family in order to create a unique one-of-a-kind portrait.

April’s pieces are organic in every sense of the word. They are the intimate portrayal of a real life adventure; a moment April spent peering into the lives of these animals in the wild. Her work is mesmerizing and extraordinary and would look stunning in any home with any style of decor. The juxtaposition of modern decor and contemporary, yet thoroughly organic paintings would truly make a statement in any space.

How To Decorate With Whites

White is the one color that never goes out of style when it comes to interior design. White interiors are bright, fresh, and clean, simple yet elegant, comfortable and inviting, yet glamorous in the best possible way. This versatile neutral works perfectly with many design styles and color schemes. However, while a single color palette sounds like an easy way to tackle the decor of a room, it can pose its fair share of challenges. Without the right design in place, your all-white space can quickly go from dream-like to cold and sterile. Here are a few of our go-to tips for decorating right with white and achieving that heavenly vibe while ensuring your space feels warm and inviting:

 

Country Living

Country Living

Use a Variety of Tones

Play with multiple shades of white to make your space feel comfortable, cozy, and fresh, rather than rigid and sterile. Layer in shades of ivory, cream and even light grey to pull your room together. 

 

BHG

BHG

Play with Scale

Add instant interest to a primarily white space with oversized art, large plants, chunky coffee tables or a cluster of side tables.

 

CoCo Milanos

CoCo Milanos

Layer Textures

The easiest mistake to make when decorating with whites is not including enough texture in your design. Infusing texture into your white space creates interest and adds warmth to the room without straying from your simple color palette. Add texture in unexpected places through molding and trim or take an easier approach with statement pieces such as textured throw pillows, rugs, and furniture.

 

The Inspired Room

A Match Made in Heaven

Nothing warms up a clean white space like a hint of wood. For a cozy room, add a wooden dresser, distressed wood artwork, or beautiful wooden furniture.

 

Elle Decor

Stay Subtle

While we love a bold print, decorating with white requires a subtler touch. Infuse barely there patterns into your space to give the room some intrigue while still achieving the soft, elegant vibe you desire.

A white room never goes out of style, and with a little finesse your all white room will be cozy, picturesque, and glamorous all at once. For help picking the right patterns and neutral shades, set up a consultation with CoCo Milano’s design team today!

Dazzling Dinner Party Details

At CoCo Milano’s, we know that design is in the details and the details count more than ever when hosting an event or a dinner party. Whether it is a beautiful flower arrangement at the center of your table or a splash of color throughout your decor, it doesn’t take much to make your party wow-worthy. Here are a few small details that will make your next dinner party dazzle:

House Beautiful

House Beautiful

 

Start With a Cocktail Bar

Greet your guests with a beckoning bar the moment they walk in the door. Set up a cocktail table or cart near the entry and stock it with all the essentials – ice, glassware, bottle openers, garnishes and mixers – and a fresh bouquet of flowers for a little extra ambiance. We also suggest providing your guests with a few fun cocktail recipes in small frames on the bar. This will create a friendly space for guests to gather upon arrival and gives you a chance to finish up in the kitchen, if necessary.  

Real Simple

Arrange The Stage

Choose one or two striking colors for your party decor and use it to accent your table, the bar, or other elements of your event. Additionally, while you may want to push all of your furniture against the wall to make room for mingling guests, we suggest creating pockets of space for guests instead, leaving your beautiful interior intact to allow your guests to enjoy your home as you designed it.

 

 

Get Creative With The Centerpiece

If you feel like flowers are overused, try something fun and creative in your centerpiece to get your guests talking. Use a seasonal fruit, an array of succulents, or an interesting sculpture or bowl.

HGTV

But, Keep Your Centerpiece Low

Your guests should be able to see each other across the table either over low centerpieces or around tall, skinny centerpieces. This facilitates conversation and makes your dinner party more enjoyable for all your guests.

HGTV

HGTV

 

Set The Mood

Make sure the atmosphere at the table is comfortable for everyone. You don’t want operating room lighting, but you don’t want the table to be too dark for your guests to see anything, either. A low-lit atmosphere with a variety of candles can create the perfect amount of light with a touch of glamour and set the mood for a relaxing dinner with friends.

Decoist

Don’t Forget The Bathroom

Stock the bathroom with individual guest napkins or towels to prevent overused guest towels and avoid messy soap bars by providing guests with a soap pump. Light a candle or a fragrance diffuser in the room before your guests arrive and freshen the room with flowers. If you have the space, a small dish of individually sealed mints or candies is an extra special touch. Like we said, the details make the day!

Houzz

Have Fun!

Don’t take yourself too seriously. Have fun with your decor and your menu and try something new to spark conversation amongst your guests. An elegant and chic dinner party doesn’t have to be fussy or stuffy – just make sure it fits your style and the event will be a smashing success!

Real Simple

Quick Tricks to Freshen Up Your Home

Have you ever noticed that your mood changes with your surroundings? This spring we are all about freshening up in order to breathe a little life into our home and improve our mood through our decor. Here are a few easy changes you can make to help your home feel fresh:

 

Houzz

Clean Your Windows

Yes, we realize this is everyone’s least favorite chore, but cleaning your windows will make your home feel brand new in an instant. Let that spring sunshine into your home through crystal clear window panes.

 

Houzz

Houzz

Start An Indoor Herb Garden

Nothing says fresh like a hint of greenery in your home. Plus, having a handful of homegrown herbs at your fingertips is a treat for all your senses.

 

Houzz

Houzz

Switch Up Scents

Toss your winter candles and scented sprays and opt for light, breezy scents for the warmer months. Heavy, woodsy and cinnamon-like scents are perfect for the cooler months of the year but they start to feel stale when the weather takes a turn for the better. A new scent, especially a fruity or floral scent, will make your living space smell and feel like new.

 

Houzz

Houzz

Rotate Your Accent Pieces

Throw pillows and artwork can instantly freshen your space. Try colorful new pillows on your couch or bed to infuse a little life into your home. Switch artwork into new frames to match your mood and rotate art into different rooms of your home to help you fall in love with your artwork all over again. Finally, replace your doormat with something brand new. Your doormat is a workhorse that greets everyone who enters your home and after a while, it starts to show. Treat yourself and your guests to a new doormat and a bright entryway.

 

Houzz

Houzz

Get Down to Brass Tacks

Don’t overlook the essentials in your home. It is easy to focus on statement pieces and accents throughout your home when freshening your space in the spring but we often forget about basics. Are your outlet covers old and yellowing? Switch them out for white covers and make your home feel new again. Are you bored with your dated brass hardware on your kitchen cupboards? Try brushed stainless steel or bronze for a subtle, trendy look. These quick fixes will instantly change the feel of your home and match your breezy mood.

 

Houzz

Houzz

Flowers, Flowers, Flowers

Nothing changes the vibe of a room quite like fresh flowers. Spending some spare change on a bouquet of seasonal flowers each week will make your home come to life in an instant.

 

Houzz

Houzz

Don’t Forget About Texture

Store your heavy flannel, wool, faux fur, and velvet fabrics to make room for breezy cotton and linen in your window coverings, throw blankets, and other fabric cushions around your home. Spring and summer fabrics will make your home feel light and bright and as a bonus, your cozy winter fabrics will feel brand new when you pull them out again next fall!

 

Houzz

Color Me Fresh

A gallon of paint is the simplest tool at your disposal when updating your home for a new season. If you are sick of the same old colors in your home, try a new color on an accent wall in your living room or update an entire room with a color that makes you happy and makes your home feel fresh.

 

Houzz

Houzz

If you are feeling overwhelmed or simply want an expert opinion as you start freshening your home, give CoCo Milano’s a call to set up a consultation with a designer today. We will help you choose the best colors to update your space, pick out brand new window treatments in breezy fabrics, and find the perfect furniture and accent pieces to make your home feel brand new and uniquely you!

Chic Decor For Your Easter Table

Pottery Barn

Pottery Barn

At CoCo Milano’s, we never miss an opportunity to decorate our homes for a holiday. This Easter, our focus is on the table. Set the tone for an unforgettable Easter brunch with the following ideas to create a chic tablescape that will have your guests buzzing about more than your Easter egg hiding spots.

The Nest

The Nest

For Easter decor this year, we love bright colors and fresh elements that embrace the spring season. Bold flowers open up the room and keep the brunch fun rather than fussy. We also suggest sprinkling in elegant touches such as brass and gold place settings with your floral displays to mix rustic and refined and heighten your Easter tablescape.

Kelley Nan

Kelley Nan

For a more traditional table, use crisp white linens and silver cutlery. This allows your centerpiece to pop, creating an elegant and polished space for Easter brunch. Instead of bright flowers, stick to white, cream, and blush elements to soften the table and enhance the traditional feel.

The Nest

The Nest

Alternatively, for something entirely new, use rich blues and shades of green to bring your table to life. Fresh greenery fits perfectly with the Easter theme while keeping decor costs low and providing a refreshing twist on traditional Easter bouquets.

Houzz

Or, for a laid back vibe, use bunches of wildflowers in uncommon vases to adorn your table. Pitchers and teacups work perfectly for this. The effect will be a stunning, rustic display for a casual brunch.

Country Living

Country Living

To introduce an element of creativity to your table and to surprise your guests with unique decor, use carrots in vases with spring flowers as a tribute to the Easter Bunny after your family Easter egg hunt. Or, add natural elements to your table that aren’t commonly found in a bouquet such as moss, nests, and blue robin’s eggs.

Martha Stewart

Finally, don’t forget to add pops of spring to the spaces in your home where guests are sure to visit such as your bathroom. Fresh flowers brighten the room and tie your home decor together.
