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.

Black & white styling from the Makelight workshop

On Saturday, I attended a photography workshop run by Emily Quinton and what a treat it was. I have meant to pick up my camera again for some times now but I was quite disappointed by the course I took last year at the London School of Photography and being too busy with the shop I put it off for another year.

We have a new hue in our linen collection called Cloud grey…dreamy isn’t it!? I just want to spend the rest of the day in this room. What do you think? Shall we have a cup of tea, GF free brownies and a chat?

Mila for Laura Ashley

Just before Christmas, Laura Ashley contacted me to take part into their new campaign challenge “15 uses for a throw“. As we were about to leave for New-Zealand to spend time with family and I had very little time left, I packed the beautiful throw I received and took it to the Coromandel Peninsula (a beautiful part of New-Zealand on the north island).

COMING SOON! The BODIE and FOU Christmas catalogue

I’m so excited to finally share the front and back  covers of our beautiful Christmas catalogue!It has been quite an adventure to get this front shot done and get all the stock arriving in time for our shoot.  At some point, I had to come up with a plan B…then a plan C…then everything turned up at the same time and we went back to plan A (I credit Bikram yoga & wine for keeping me fairly sane during these past few weeks) but I’m happy.  I’m in love with this Z1 pendant light by Nelson Sepuvelda, who is also the Creative Director behind this beautiful collection of ceramics (displayed on the table) and I loved it so much that I wanted to make it the key piece of our Christmas Home collection.It’s a lamp that exudes style, lightness and was just perfect for the effortless chic, stylish Christmas I had in mind. The two white chairs are the Knot chair (another beautiful piece which we recently supplied to The Hospital Club), the black & …

Cosy, feel-good mood board for a happy weekend

To celebrate the arrival of our natural baskets, Autumn and a lovely weekend ahead, I’ve put together this cosy, feel-good mood board for you.  And I have a request for you…I need a vintage wooden or metal chair with wear & tear marks for a photoshoot (something like this, this or that would do) so if you have one in London and you can lend it to me, please let me know.If not, I think, I’ll paint an old armchair I have upstairs but I think my shoot would work better with a chair.What are up to to this weekend? We are going to The Bike Shed this weekend…expect some interesting snaps on Instagram :-) Have a good one, bises.(C) Photo 1. 2. 4.

So enjoyed styling Nelson Sepuvelda ceramic collection….

This week is a styling/photoshoot week for François and I and here are the first shots of the beautiful Nelson Sepuvelda ceramic collection (by the way, there is only two ASE salad bowls left in stock).I fell in love with this collection years ago but at the time, BODIE and FOU was just a baby and I couldn’t take the financial risk of stocking such a large quantity of ceramics but they are here now and I’m still madly in love with them after all these years.I feel connected to their organic shape and colours and they look wonderful on the vintage rack in my kitchen – which is kind of the starting point of my kitchen masterplan.Talking of connection, one interior book that really resonated with me recently was Rethink: The Way Live by Amanda Talbot – a book review is on my list of things to do!So that’s it, I hope you like the collection and our photos ;-) Please let me know, you know how much I love reading your comments and feedback, bises. PS: I …

The bedroom of my dreams

Earlier this week, Francois and I shot our new stonewashed linen collection (see more pics on Instagram).I wanted to create a happy, uplifting, relaxed bedroom because I was getting fed up with the gloomy weather (I’m still wearing jumpers for crying our loud!) and this beautiful, soft mint stonewashed duvet cover was just perfect. I added textures and brought nature indoor by adding this beautiful natural basket (good for storage throughout the house), the MILK table lamp on the floor and this gorgeous Bamboo pendant light (they are so nice it’s insane!).The industrial clothes rail is from here and I’m not sure I’m going to give it back…The white t-shirts come from Zara, Des Petits Hauts (a French fashion brand) and the market near our holidays home in France.The wooden rosary on the American Vintage linen dress (far left) is from here and it looks really beautiful on a white wall or displayed like this on a white garnement.Tomorrow, I’ll have the pleasure to work from this bedroom to sort out Mila’s clothes and will put everything for …
