Early Morning Coco

This morning I woke up to NPR's Susan Stamberg's voice, which I continued to peacefully sleep through until I realized that she said she was visiting the flat of Coco Chanel and was accompanied on the amazing tour by Chanel archivist, Odile Babin. I immediately jumped out of bed and made coffee to read the article and see the photographs of her lovely home. The home is opulent as one would suspect and Stamberg sounds giddy as always being in the private apartments of the legendary designer. She also revealed at the end of the piece that Chanel's apartment had no bedroom! It wasn't needed for she spent every night at the nearby Hôtel Ritz. How grand!
