Thank goodness it is Friday. This week has been absolutely crazy!! I am ready for the weekend and Spring break!! I thought I would dedicate my Fridays to things that I am loving, craving and just over all, "dieing" for. One of my all time favorites is anything Chanel. There is something about that double C that gets my heart racing. Today I thought I would post images of Coco Chanels apartment that is located at 31 Rue Cambon. I hope you enjoy and have a great weekend!
|Coco Chanel believed in the healing power of crystal. She had this Chandelier custom made.|
|She designed this couch herself and used suede which was very cutting edge. People mostly used velvet or silk.|
|Coco had a mix of eclecticism that included French classic furniture, antiquities and Italian influences.|
|All of Coco's books have beautiful deep red tones. Just like the inside lining of the bags.|
|The tops of these tables originally had marble but Gabrielle Chanel wanted to take off the marble and leave them the black lacquer.|
|The birdcage was the inspiration for the Vanessa Paradis' "Coco" perfume campaign.|
|Wheat symbolizes prosperity and can be seen throughout Coco's apartment.|
|The salon which hosted many of her famous friends such as Elizabeth Taylor.|
|The camellia flower was also very important to Coco Chanel. It symbolizes purity and longevity in Asia and was very prevalent in her designs.|
Have a great weekend!!
