 Known to rarely be seen wearing anything other than black and white, to this day, Coco Chanel is known for her luxurious style and this bedroom, with its black surfa- ces, clean lines and plush textu- res, certainly mirrors that style. The French designer spent most of her days in the apartment above the Paris Chanel store, but it was actually the Ritz where the desig- ner rested her head at night. As a nod to this, notice the high ceilings and intricate panelling on the walls that is a key trend today as well as being quintessential of 1920s French interior design.
Also, spot the flower-etched screen which has been placed in front of a door. This is a nod to Coco Chanel’s interior trick which involved using the screen to hide the exit in hope of making her most loved guests forget to leave.
