More About the Author

Jennifer Duchene grew up in glorious South Africa in a home where entertaining was a way of life and style was celebrated.

Her natural sense of creativity and love of color have been
constant companions throughout her life. As a graduate of the UCLA Interior and Environmental program, Duchene has earned several accreditations and licenses as well as the honor of being named one of the Top 20 Interior Design Firms by San Jose
Business Journal.
Even with more than 15 years experience in Design Color and Rearranging Furniture, Jennifer, like most women failed to fully express herself and allow her inner beauty to burst forth--until now!
As the author of "Le Chic Cocoon" Duchene is passionate about empowering women through her transformational 7 step process which at the heart of its message teaches that quality and style come from within. She invites women to "be selfish" in the most positive way so that they emerge from their cocoon as beautiful butterflies-- spirits rejuvenated, souls set to soar!

Format: Paperback
With this book, author Jen Duchene has struck a chord that lies hidden away in the cobwebbed attic of so many women: less doing and more cocooning. She awakens the desire to weave and spin a space that not only reflects one's taste and style, but reflects one's very essence. Ms Duchene isn't telling us how to create a pretty room that is merely a showcase for the ego or one's friends. She is talking about creating a place to be spacious yourself...to open to the untended reservoirs within--whether of deep reflection, meditation, reckless pondering, the birthing of new dreams or the rebirthing of old ones. This delightful book ring true because it is clear that the author has been both deprived of this essential dimension of life, as well as nourished herself back to life within the walls of her own sacred space. Before you get too far into these pages, Le Chic Cocoon will have you seeking a corner, a nook or a whole room to make your own...and in which to own more of yourself. After all, we intuitively understand that out of true cocooning comes nothing less than metamorphosis.

Le Chic Cocoon has served as a wake up call for me. We women walk a path of service to everyone and anything around us. We decorate the rooms "guests" will see first, we decorate our souls with others' reflection of ourselves. The time has come to truly be "selfish"--which is **caring for ourselves first**. We are useless to those we care for if we don't take care of ourselves first. (Ever notice the flight attendant tells you to put YOUR oxygen mask on first??)

Le Chic Cocoon exists literally and figuratively. Build a nest within yourself to connect, and one you can revel in literally. I have already begun both. I highly recommend this book to women who struggle with self care, the guilt of being "selfish" and who need to reconnect with themselves to truly be of service to those around them. If I could give it a ten, I would.

The author does a fantastic job of convincing me that being selfish is a good thing! I never thought of it that way, but really, we do all need our sacred spaces to go and recharge, places that are just our own, without having to compromise on style and taste. Yes, I'm convinced, and I plan to declare my space and make it my own! Thank you for permission to be absolutely me! Just bought another copy for a gift! I can see this will be given out to many this Holiday!

Format: Paperback
Jennifer's bold and spot-on assessment of a woman's entitlement to her very own `patch of
peace' is both liberating and refreshing. Baring her own soul and sharing her
personal experiences adds an intimacy that readers will identify with and reinforces
the common bond that we women share .The simple-to-follow action
steps enables any woman, regardless of space or resources, to create and start
reveling in her very own Le Chic Cocoon.I would recommend as perfect for gift giving!

Sitting down with Le Chic Cocoon is like have Jen as a best friend, encouraging you every step of the way for integrity, authenticity and to love yourself. To take care of yourself, nurture yourself with tenderness yet with confidence affirming identity. And build a space that honors yourself. I love her depth of sharing from personal experience accompanied by guides to make your very own Chic Cocoon!
