Coco Chanel's Paris Apartment

Coco Chanel's apartment in Paris at 31 Rue Cambon has been left as a sort of museum piece to her.  It's amazing the beautiful things she collected in her life time.  It's well maintained and curated, overall the image is stunning and that is how she lived.  Quite the life.

A close up of the famous intertwined C's and number 5's chandelier in her living room.
Chanel really had a thing for coromandel screens but I would too if I could afford the quality of these screens.

The apartment is frequently used for photoshoots and commercials.  Here are a couple of my favourites

This little bird cage sits in her apartment.  It's been featured in a number of ways.

It was the inspiration for the Coco advert featuring Vanessa Paradis as the caged bird.
