Sneak-peek of our catalogue: White Xmas spread

We just received the first copies of our Autumn catalogue* which is being mailed to customers on Friday. It’s always quite something for Soph’ and I to see months of hard work finally in a print form. The White Christmas double page (the spread as we call it) below is a new format we introduced to reflect our love for mood boards, masking tapes and Pinterest but also to put together a lovely and unique selection of gorgeous and unsual gifts for everyone.My top 4 favourites under £30 are– the white tealight holder: £15 each– the decorative star: £15 each– the handmade Star garland: £20– and the set of ceramic polar bears which looks really cute in a kids bedroom: £28Also our lovely ceramic white owl is now back in stock *Request a copy HERE

Styling from the weekend

Francois and I spent a few hours shooting products we had recently received and I have to say it was 3 enjoyable hours which ended with a kiwi BBQ!We are getting better and faster and this linen collection is just amazing. It is so soft and has a such a nice feel and texture to it, it is a pleasure to sleep in it and work with it!I really enjoyed styling this more masculine shot for our new dark grey duvet cover, using Steve’s boots, an old apple crate, the Typed Love print and the New-Zealand Type map print.Sadly our supplier is stopping the vintage pink series so once what we have left in stock is gone, we won’t be able to re-order them, which is a shame.I also love the first photo very much because it includes 3 of my favourite things from our collection:– the Urbanears Plattan headphones which I strongly recommend – great sound, great design and perfect for running (as in..they stay on your head!)– the blue grey linen scarf + this NEW linen scarf in soft pink we posted on Facebook …

Love is blind

Lots of good news this week, more pom poms including this new set which includes a red, apink & a soft pink pom pom  will arrive tomorrow + some new, gorgeous garlands and our beloved Batgirl print and Le Chat print are back in stock.

Such an inspiring feedback….

This is the message I found in my in-box this morning: “When everybody boast about Merci, I really think BODIE and FOU is a much greater achievement. It’s inspirational, efficient and generous. I try to find something to criticize because critics are more useful than compliments but at the moment I can’t see any. Keep going on Karine !  Your blog and your e-shop are a great source of presents and ideas. And your daily life is always shared with elegance. I must admit I am sometimes surprised by how much Anne and I share some taste and lifestyle habits with you (grey wall for a little girl room, fondness for Bill Granger,….) One thing is sure if you ever come near Lyon tell us !“ So well…. THANK YOU!!!!!  I was trying hard to think if I knew this person if we had met but I don’t think I did so it makes it even more important to me. 

Styling from Amsterdam…

After chatting until 1 am with Desiree and drinking wine, I got up this morning feeling a tiny bit tired but it was so great to catch up with Desiree and talked endlessly about interior design, styling and other creative things. This morning, I styled a few things I had brought with me from our collection. Desiree has really a gorgeous place that she styled beautifully. Wherever you look, there is an inspiring corner, little mood boards made with masking tapes. Her sense of style is very strong and she has created an amazing space with beautiful volumes and lots of natural light. Don’t you love this gorgeous clothes rail that she designed and got made by a local tradesman? I think it is beautiful! I have more photos to take this afternoon but here is a sneak-peek of the shots I did for the Do What You Think Is Right print and a gorgeous leather bag that goes nicely with my new white jacket from Zara…very Bianca Jagger in the 70s, don’t you think? Have a great weekend
