Natural bedroom styling in France

A few weeks ago, I updated the styling of one of the bedrooms in this holidays home which you can rent via Airbnb. Bearing in mind that the house is for sale and I can’t give it too much of a strong identity so everyone visiting it, can project their own style, I have decided to leave the walls white and add small styling touches to create a happy vibe. This was an inexpensive styling job (only about 15 euros for the stretched canvas), a few tear sheets, my BE HAPPY print, some family photos and quotes found on Pinterest.

Holiday rentals in the Bay of Arcachon

We always spent our holidays in France in this home which is now fully booked the whole Summer except the week from 22nd August but we also have this pretty house for 6 people near the Bay of Arcachon where I stayed for three months after giving birth to Mila.

Tea party in our tree house

These are behind-the-scene shots I took when Côté Ouest magazine came to shoot our home last June, which I never shared with you. We moved a lot of things around in the house for the sake of the photoshoot to create new images but I’m especially fond of these photos in our tree house which was built by Steve and was a really work of love. Sadly Mila no longer fit in this fabulous denim jumpsuit which we got from Gap but you can probably find similar ones on Elias and Grace or Smallable. I’ll sell some of Mila’s clothes on Instagram soon.

Glamping at Eweleaze Farm

Last Wednesday, armed with our gumboots, our new Bell tent* from Boutique Camping*,our mugs and plates, off we went to spend 5 wonderful days at Eweleaze Farm in Dorset. We…was 4 couples (Swedish/English, American/English, Italian/New-Zealander and French/New-Zealander), 9 kids under 6 and 2 dogs…Needless to say that despite the weather, it was amazing… Eweleaze Farm is an organic farm that opens its surrounding fields to the public in August only. As much as I hate traditional camping where everyone has a specific slot allocated which means that your tent is 1 meter away from the next (at least it’s like this in France), there you’re free to put your tent wherever you want. It’s also incredibly well organized! At the farm, you can buy pretty much everything from burgers, milk, organic sausages & burgers, stuff for the tent your forgot to bring, bags of wood, hay bells, etc. They also have stone oven baked pizzas in the evening (although quite pricey £4.50 for the size of the pizza…we passed) but the burgers & sausages were …

My home in France {The Kitchen}

Despite all the photoshoots (here and here and there), I’ve never managed to have a shot that was showing the three pendant lights by Kathleen Hills I hung in the kitchen of our holidays home….until my brother took this photo.So from left to right, you can see the Star pendant light, the Cone pendant light and the Large pendant light.The Screen poster on the release figures of Trainspotting is from my days working at Universal Pictures International and the Kitchen units are from our Swedish friends. Malgre tous les photoshoots (ici et ici et la), je n’ai jamais pu avoir une photo de la cuisine montrant les trois suspensions de Kathleen Hills que j’avais accroche dans la cuisine de notre maison de vacances….jusqu’a ce que mon frere prene cette photo. Donc de gauche a droite, vous pouvez voir la Star pendant light, la Cone pendant light et la Large pendant light. Le poster Screen poster avec les ventes du film Trainspotting est un souvenir de ma vie anterieur chez Universal Pictures International et les unites …
