So got an email the other day (maybe last week) inviting me (and I’m sure hundreds of others) to a mid June reception for First Lady Michelle Obama here in Los Angeles. The reception will be at interior designer Michael S. Smith’s house. Hmmmm…Michelle Obama and Michael S. Smith (the man who redecorated the White House) in one evening? Could be very interesting.
Now most of you might say…”Just go Coco, just go”. Well I might but you should know I’m not so chic that I was just invited to Michael S. Smith’s house for no reason to meet Michelle Obama…it is a fundraiser…with a price tag.
I like Michael S. Smith’s style (these photos are NOT of his house but from his portfolio). Maybe if I had a gagillion dollars I might ask him to look at a room or two for me. His style is a little traditional for me but I saw his work first hand once and I thought it was all quite impressive. I met Michael S. Smith once briefly at another event at a gorgeous home in Malibu that he decorated. The hostess, Nancy Marks who I had just met, heard that I loved decor and dragged Michael S. Smith across her grand home to meet me. Micheal frankly seemed bored with me and left me to have a nice chat with his significant other James Costos (who is also hosting the Michelle Obama reception).
I have to tell you though, I love anything to do with decor…and I like the First Lady too…so I just might splurge. What would you do…?

So I guess the question is would you go? How decor curious are you? Would you spend a bit of money to go to the home of a well known interior designer? I know…the First Lady is also in the mix (it would be fun to meet a First Lady)…I’m not completely decor myopic. Want to hear what you would do? Do tell.
Will keep you posted on what I decide.
P.S. Need to go find a camera today…if you recall, last week, I volunteered my camera for a beach experiment that involved a kite and my camera. At the time, it seemed like such a great idea…now, not so much. LOL! C’est la vie.
P.P.S. My mother and sis are in Paris right now at the GORGEOUS apartment my mom has for the summer! Sis DS just sent over some fabulous photos of the apartment (all a little too blurry to post)…it is gorgeous and I am not there! I’ll try to get DS to take better photos so I can share of the Paris apartment! In the meantime, posting some photos from DS on twitter…she and mom and a friend of hers are sitting at Deux Magots right now…in the center of Paris enjoying an afternoon champagne cocktail I’m sure!
P.P.P.S. Please go to COCOCOZY Twitter to see a photo of a proof of the new COCOCOZY catalog…just back from printer…with new pillows and other goodies in the COCOCOZY Collection. We went green with this and printed on recycled paper. We’ll be adding new items to the shop website in July!
