Fall in Paris

I'm not a big dress up for Halloween person.  In the past, when I dressed up for Halloween my costumes were always the makeshift kind that involved a wearing all black, putting on a mask and then calling myself a bandit, cat, mouse, burglar, spy or whatever came to mind.  One year a friend of mine made me dress up as a twin sugar plum fairy...we wore pink unitards, pink tutus, tiaras and wings and went to Halloween parties in New Orleans...that was the most I've done!  This year, I am not dressing up but will enjoy the day and night of trick or treaters and grown ups wearing costumes!

Well my guy TE is in Paris today for Halloween...he is working from Europe and then Taiwan over the next few weeks.  He sent me these photos he took while taking a run along the Seine.

Needless to say would be a very happy Halloween if I were in Paris.

Today, I am off to the office.  My boss told me he is dressing as a cowboy and our assistant was desperately looking for contact lenses that would make his eyes a kooky color so he could freak people out all day.

Here I go!

Thank you TE for these lovely photos.  Am jealous!

Happy Halloween everyone!

COCOCOZY Pillows and Tray for Habitat for Humanity

Got an email the other day from Lea who works at Habitat for Humanity in Palm Beach County.  They are having a big event over there on Saturday to raise money for the charity so they can build houses for people in need.

They were asking for a donation from COCOCOZY.  We offered to send off as many pillows as they needed but because their space is limited, they only needed a few items for the auction.

Here are the items I pulled together from our collection including COCOCOZY Etoile pillows and a black and white COCOCOZY Logo Lucite tray.

COCOCOZY assistant NG packed these up and made a pretty package we sent off on Monday.  Got a note this morning that Lea liked the selection!

Hope this raises some good money for Habitat for Humanity's efforts in Palm Beach County! Habitat for Humanity is one of my favorite I was thrilled to make a donation in the form of COCOCOZY goodies! This is the beginning of the giving season here at COCOCOZY.

Happy Thursday (again)!



Contemporary dining room in multi million dollar Palm Beach home

Listed at $6.8 million dollars and sitting right on the Intracoastal Waterway in Lantana Florida, this Palm Beach County home oozes a island Bahamian feel.  Bright white, pitched ceilings, 6 bedrooms, 7 baths in over 6000 square feet with wonderful water views. A contemporary home with plenty of charm, the key here is the outdoor spaces with a pool and its own dock.  Hmmmm...seems like in the world of million dollar listings, this one is a steal!

Never thought of moving to Palm Beach area or to Florida for that matter...hmmm....thinking...

White leather and metal stools in a bedroom

One of my best of friends emailed me the other day.  She was looking for leather and metal stools for a guest bedroom in her ski house.   That led me to a week long hunt for the best looking leather and metal x-benches for the end of her bed. Now she has a designer working with her...the designer I am sure will come up with many other choices but these are my top picks for the best looking x bench style stools for the foot of your bed or anywhere in the house that are out there.

Just under a 1000 square feet and located in Gothenberg, Sweden, this small 2 bedroom apartment is perfectly edited. Inside a building built in 1899 with wonderful architectural details, the decor is a simple blend of midcentury and contemporary pieces.  With high ceilings, crown moldings, tall radius windows, ceiling medallions and curved bay windows...letting the architecture do the talking, is the way to go.

I would imagine this little space would be great to rent for a week of travel.  Right? Comfy and cozy with an eclectic design to it.

Happy Tuesday!
