Coco Chanel's Apartment... full of fabulous details!


I've seen pictures before of Coco Chanel’s apartment at 31 rue Cambon and even thought I thought it was amazing.... I never really saw this level of detail.... that have me in total-awe!

Full of trinkets, Chinese art, vintage furniture, animal statues (how cute is the camel?) and luscious gold details (I can write an entire post about the miniature version of Vanessa Paradis whistling in a birdcage.....wuaw totally speeches..). Of course never missing a Karl Lagerfeld drawing on the wall, her classic Chanel #5 perfume collection.....and the latest Chanel pieces from Haute Couture collection (full of pastel colors). These are some of the details in her apartment that I love the most but to see more go here.

What is your favourite detail??

Absolutely inspiring... reminds me how important it is to surround ourselves with items that brings joy in our lives each time we see them, and not be dictated by a particular decor style.

Hope you are having a fantastic week so far!
