GABRIELLE 'COCO' CHANEL'S APARTMENT, the infamous abode at 31 Rue Cambon, Paris. Wheat symbolizes prosperity and can be seen throughout Coco’s apartment. Karl Lagerfeld “sprinkled” ears of wheat throughout his Spring-Summer 2010 collection: showers of golden wheat ears were embroidered or cropped up on chain belts, bracelets, headbands, necklaces and shirt fronts.
Designer Suzanne Rheinstein brought a New York City dining room to life with a vibrant, scenic Chinese wallpaper by Gracie. She and the young homeowners chose fine furnishings "that will see them through their lives," she says. Rheinstein loves painted pieces against rich, dark woods, so she paired chalky Gustavian dining chairs with an antique English mahogany table.
