Mariah Carey buys furniture worth $200K for new homeFebruary 26th, 2009 - 6:14 pm ICT by admin
Washington, Feb 26 (ANI): Mariah Carey is on a spending spree and that too in big amounts-she dished out a whopping 200,000 dollars to buy chairs, sofas and furnishings during a four-hour shop at a trendy Melrose Avenue store on February 19.
The singer is decorating her new Los Angeles home, and in order to shop for the furniture in peace, she even got Kreiss Showrooms to close down for other customers.
Husband Nick Cannon and top interior designer Kenneth Bordewick, who is reportedly advising Carey on what to buy for her new pad, accompanied the ‘Hero’ singer on her outing.
According to a source, Carey bought a host of top items, including contemporary chairs and sofas from the company’s Gatsby range.
And to give a taste of old Hollywood in her home, Carey picked up stylish items in beige and taupe with dark wood frames in rosewood and mahogany.
“It was like a raid - the shop was closed down and her huge minders stood guard at the door,” Contactmusic quoted an insider as saying.
The source added: “Mariah clearly knew what she wanted, but took her time making sure she got the right matches and designs. She has terrific taste.” (ANI)
