A Sacred Place in Pictures: Coco’s Apartment


Some people go to Kaaba, some go to Jerusalem, and for some there is 31 Rue Cambon. With the risk of being sacrilegious, this address sounds to me like one of the most coveted and sacred places in the world, not only in fashion. I was in awe today for quite some time when I saw the last post by The Coveteur – Coco’s Apartment. The post is amazing, it shares so much, not only beautiful imagery, but also insights from the life of Gabrielle Chanel, her superstitious nature and the symbolism in her home, the furniture she designed, the little nooks and corners of the apartment and the endless bookshelves with dark red leather-bound books. Here are some of the images, but definitely make sure to visit the Coveteur to read the whole experience.

Priceless.

Really.

 The Staircase with the Mirrors!!!

Custom made crystal chandelier. Can you spot the number 5?

Suede sofa designed by Coco herself.

Coco’s Desk

Wheat – symbol of prosperity and source of inspiratio for Karl’s SS2010 collection.

The iconic white chair and the mirror that was inspiration for the cap of Chanel N5.

Amazing, isn’t it? Nothing similar to the black and white, very clean shaped stylistic of her brand, but in the same time very meaningful and revealing of the nature and character of the most famous woman in fashion.

Super Cool Decor/Gift Ideas


While I was shopping for Christmas gifts last month, I found out the coolest little gadgets ever. The little jewelry stands or just pieces of flair are in various tree shapes and sizes… oh and colours too! The company is Bulgarian and it is called Ard Decor, and although the site is not one of the best creations of the internet industry, it has few of the collection of fun products. Definitely worth stopping by if you go to a mall where they are sold.

  

Beauty from Tumblr- It Smells Like Christmas!


Only two weeks are left until Christmas, and I am getting more and more in Jingle Bells-mood! Decorations, gifts, recipes for delicious Christmas treats… it is all up and buzzing in my head. And what better place to turn for inspiration to than Tumblr ! These are my top picks for tree decorations.

1. Very, very white

2. Blue and fun 3. Starry white 4. Golden joy  After gathering inspiration I decided that this year my tree will be all silver and white, and although very small, I think the result is pretty!   

What are your favourite Christmas colours?
