Good Things Come In Three's!

It all started on Mother’s Day for Wendy Cole & her three lovely daughters. Finding themselves living & working on different coasts & having so much to share, they decided it was time to start a blog, and indeed they did!
Chic Coles
offers design & style tips & chronicles the happenings of four busy lives from
San Francisco to New York!
It's been great fun getting to know the very Chic Coles . With a great deal of warmth, they have graciously agreed to spending some quality time with all of us.
Connecticut is home for this busy family & also where Wendy Cole heads her design firm, Cole Design.
Creating chic & stylish spaces for clients is just part of what she does on a daily basis. She admires the gracious & comfortable designs of renowned interior designer Bunny Williams. Wendy incorporates that same timeless sense of style into a fulfilling life for herself & her family! When asked what her dream job would be, she will tell you, "furnishing houses for movie sets & also furnishing a house for my family in the Caribbean"
Wendy's prized possessions, three wonderful daughters! Her favorite times are "when the girls all return home & the family can enjoy a favorite tradition of sea glass hunts on the beach!"

Cassandra Cole: An evolving young woman with plans of someday being the principal in her own residential design firm! She currently works for designer Martha Angus in San Francisco & greatly values the guidance given to her by this long-time professional in the industry,
“Get out there and experience it all. Whether it’s a job, traveling, or even a paint color, there is nothing too small or too large, it’s all worth it!"Looking very stylish in her favorite black, belted Trina Turk dress, Cassandra say’s, “If I had a magic wand I would turn any piece of furniture into something fabulous and change a fabric at the drop of a hat!” Her prized possessions are the very special pieces of jewelry that she has collected over the years, some received as gifts. She says, “Putting on a wonderful piece of jewelry makes you feel so fabulous!"For casual occasions, Cassandra's most comfortable in classic jeans and her favorite navy blue Theory sweater. “But who wouldn't love to have Jennifer Aniston’s stylist, she always looks amazing.” On the weekends, relaxation is key! You might find her outside in the sun, reading a good book or curled up in a snuggly blanket on the couch watching a great movie.
On her iPod, an assortment of music from Miles Davis to Lady Gaga!

Melissa Cole: The middle of the three sisters is an intern for Trina Turk in New York. Her dream is to someday own a lifestyle clothing & design boutique with her mom. Her sisters will tell you, "Melissa has the most amazing fashion sense, and is talented at picking timeless yet hip pieces."
Her “favorite” piece just recently added to her wardrobe is her Shoshanna dress, purchased at 75% off. ”I love it even more because it was on sale!” Her prized possession though is her Rebecca Minkoff Nikki bag.As stylish and savvy as this young lady is, she is also down-to-earth and very caring.
“If I had a magic wand I would first find homes for all the dogs in shelters, & then I would get one for myself!” Melissa & Mom are both happiest hanging out at their home in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, or at the beach in Nantucket. Scroll through her iPod and you will find everything from Cold Play to Black Eyed Peas, to Britney Spears!

Leslie Cole: At 15, she is the youngest of this dynamic little trio! Cassandra will proudly tell you, “Leslie is the most easy-going person I have ever known. She is always in the best of moods & reflects that onto others which is such a great quality!” Melissa says that her favorite thing about her little sister is her, "kindness & innocence.” I would say that being the youngest here, definitely has it’s advantages.
She is secure in knowing that both of her older sisters are always looking out for her! Leslie also knows that when she is ready to have that dream house of her own, all she has to do is tap her magic wand, and Cassandra or Melissa will appear. “With their design knowledge & style, they have the ability to take anything ordinary & turn it into something fabulous!”I want to sincerely thank
Chic Coles for taking the time to give us all a peek into their chic & stylish life! Through our many late-night emails, which at times felt more like a fun slumber party, I can tell you that these lovely ladies are so friendly & inviting. You will always find a mix of modern & timeless style brought to their delightful blog in a fresh & well informed manner!Their enthusiasm for living a stylish & fun-filled life is contagious!

Wellington & Lars Cole invite all the chic bloggy dogs to stop by!

I'm coming to Lexington this weekend and Joni Webb from Cote de Texas suggested I send you a note. I'd love to visit the area's best antique and garden type shops (not mall/chain stores) but need some recommendations. Thank you!
