I Die: Coco Chanel’s Apartment

(Coco in her apartment)
Did any of you watch Rachel Zoe Project last night?  I forgot it was on until my friend Marie texted me- “I hope you are watching Rachel Zoe- she’s in Chanel’s apartment!!!!” I almost fell off the couch and killed myself when I changed the channel and saw Rachel touring the queen of couture’s apartment on the famous Rue Cambon! When I was in Paris I did manage to get the guts up to go into the Chanel boutique in this location (very intimidating, especially when you are wearing jeans and look like a red-eye-flying hot mess) but did not realize THIS was right above.
While my decorating tastes veer far from this kind of ornate luxury, there is a little part of me that loves it and wishes I could lounge on that deep velvet sofa surrounded by gold and crystal and laqcuered chinoiserie panels and dream up my next collection…. don’t you agree?
 
Did I mention I was excited to see the new movie about Coco starring Audrey Tatou? She already looks the part in this shot from Vanity Fair! :)
 

P.S. The whole show made me LONG for my darling Paris- and wish I had someone like Rachel with me to force me to have made some purchases like way she did the whole “Jedi Stylist Mind Trick” on Brad and that leather trench!
