London, Feb 26 (IANS) Pop singer Mariah Carey is not discouraged by the recession and is splurging on furniture - she spent over $200,000 as she shopped at the hip Melrose Avenue.
Contactmusic.com reports that she and her entourage closed down Kreiss Showrooms at the well-known Los Angeles street Melrose Avenue so that she and her husband Nick Cannon could shop undisturbed. She was accompanied by Kenneth Bordewick, who is an interior designer and is helping Carey picking up furniture pieces for her Los Angeles home.
“It was like a raid - the shop was closed down and her huge minders stood guard at the door. Mariah clearly knew what she wanted, but took her time making sure she got the right matches and designs. She has terrific taste,” said an inside source.
