Readers…have a special for you today…a guest post!
This is the first ever guest post on COCOCOZY. I have yet to invite anyone to guest post on the blog but decided this post could be worth.
This first guest post comes from my amazing former intern Spardha. After spending months helping me out on COCOCOZY, I’ve asked my one-time intern to think up her own post concept for me to consider for possible posting. She submited her idea…and I loved it…so with a little editing here we are…
To cut to the chase, I give you former COCOCOZY intern Spardha Townend with her first guest post!
As my boyfriend and I start to decorate our first apartment together, we clearly have some differences in design styles. As reflected through our personal style, I lean towards neutral colours and classic lines, while he moves towards rich colours and big, bold pieces.
I always look forward to Coco’s posts about what runway looks translate in to a certain piece of furniture or the fabric & colour of a room. So when Coco approached me about writing a guest posting, I wanted to look even further in to the relationship between Fashion & Interior Design.
I remember reading sometime around April about a hotel Armani was opening in Dubai where the style of each room reflected the brand & it’s signature look. From there I discovered that beyond the runway, there has been a surge or Designers contributing to new condo developments and hotels across the globe! Here are a few of my favorites!

Thanks again to Coco for all her help & inspiration during my internship with Cococozy.com, it’s been an exciting last couple of months! I will continue to seek inspiration from your website – for decorating ideas, day dreaming, or just to catch up & see what you have been up to!
As to who will prevail in my apartment decorating project? Only time will tell, but I’m leaning towards me, of course!!!
