OUR MALIBU MASTER BEDROOM UNDER CONSTRUCTION

TE and I spent much of the weekend running around looking at floors and tile and searching for inspiration for our master bedroom and master bathroom in Malibu.  Long story and I will tell you more about the house over the coming months.  But as I mentioned in passing the other day, after months of searching, TE and I found a house in Malibu last year and now we are in the process of remodeling it!  Woohoooo! It has been a long journey.  We started looking in 2013.  We had been ... Read More

PARIS SUBURBS – CHIC NEUILLY APARTMENT

Neuilly-Joseph-Dirand-Architecture-living-room-cococozy

Love this beautifully constructed apartment by Joseph Dirand Architecture in the Paris suburbs.  This stunning apartment in Neuilly is the epitome of modern elegance.  Why is it that everything in around Paris seems so chic and sophisticated?  This is my second Paris apartment view of the week. The first was a tour of my mother's Paris winter apartment in the 6th arrondissement which has its own very Paris style. This flat featured today has all of the right touches of classic ...

7 L.A. MANSIONS – JAY Z & BEYONCE CELEBRITY HOUSE HUNT

bel-air-estate-sothebys-cococozy

  Very important question for you today…a pressing question which I am sure all of you have been contemplating for weeks since the "news" broke that king of music Jay Z and his wife superstar queen Beyonce and their daughter named Blue Ivy are moving to Los Angeles for good.  Where will music royalty live in Los Angeles?  Where will they live?  Poor L.A. doesn't have a professional football team and may not have the world class cultural landmarks that New York has…but now, ...

TRELLIS WALL ART – LATTICE DESIGN IDEA

living-room-blue-sofa-lattice-wall-art-cococozy

  Always looking for interesting ideas to decorate walls. I have a problem with committing to art on my walls. In my little tiny cottage in the Hollywood Hills, I am very fortunate to have a very grand piece by amazing artist Brian Wills in the living room (click here to see my living room)...but the rest of my walls are not as lucky. Aesthetically, it is very hard for me to commit to a painting. P.S. (a P.S. in the middle of a post again I know) I had a beautiful ... Read More

hotel-covell-gallerychapter-4-guest-bed-bedroom-niche-cococozy

It is called Hotel Covell...a tiny 5 room boutique hotel located on the east side of Los Angeles in the hipster area of Silverlake.   Each room is called a "chapter"...the concept is based on a fictional character George Covell and each unique room is supposed to represent an aspect or "chapter" from his fictional life...in other words...the decor in each room of the hotel tells a fictional story of world traveling writer. What I  think is interesting is the use of so many ... Read More

$25 MILLION DOLLAR MOROCCAN ESTATE IN CALIFORNIA

I was in New York last month when it was about 20 degrees.  As I walked down the street in really cold weather from the Upper East Side to midtown where I had a meeting...I noticed that not one person was smiling as they shuffled by in the extremely cold conditions.  Hoards of people bundled up and many of them had scowls on their faces.  It was so cold that I tightened my scarf around my neck, pulled down my hat, put on my scowl and walked with them...when in Rome. ...
