So as most of you (ok maybe there are only a few of you readers out there) know I have recently attained an obsession with decorating which has now apparently led to fashion as well. Ive looked at every website that remotely relates to "hollywood regency" and "black and white decor". My eyes feel like they are bleeding I have spent so much time staring into pops of color, the french revolution, and Voltaire chairs that I can barely see straight. But beyond that I have thoroughly enjoyed these moments of internal bliss. The only problem is that I couldnt even begin to pay for one of the items I have found to decorate my new home, that I have yet to sign a lease on because I do not make enough money to pay for the lease.... wheww. Anyway back to the point, amist the hours and hours of searching for the perfect items I stumbled upon Chanel and thought that it would be neat to look at their preview for their fall collection. As I viewed the site I explored until I found the section of what would be their "blog" or better yet history and company news. It struck me as I was reading the section that Chanel is a magnificent example of the type of apartment I want. It was amazing to see that Karl and I were on the same page this season, our minds were in sync as we began to design what would be a memorable frame for our future. Anyway maybe more to add later but I had to share what a beautiful brand I have always loved but have now rediscovered. Have a look for yourself and see the beauty in what I have found.
Until Next Time,

I'm super excited about the new move with Bob. We are going to find a great apartment/loft and finally move in together. Okay, so maybe I'm jumping the gun, but interior decorating makes me so excited! Ive already picked the theme, Hollywood Regency, and for Christmas instead of my matching TiffanyandCo. necklace and bracelet, I had Bob buy all of Z Gallerie at Green Hills Mall. Crazy? Maybe, but I cant help myself. The 1930's theme of "Hollywood Regency" is full of damask, pops of bright colors, and push button pillows. So get excited with me to view a lot of great (and not so great) pieces to put into my new home. You can find my new decor at http://athomewithelle.blogspot.com/ !
