A picture of these industrial stairs was on my fridge in our London home for years.
So when French Interior Designer Valérie Mazérat posted it on Facebook, I messaged her to have a bit more background info.
It’s a project Valérie re-designed in 2008 .
At the time, her clients & their children lived in a 150 sqm2 apartment.
Having recently purchased the flat above, they hired Valérie to link the two apartments together.
The recently purchased flat was laid bare.
Valerie raised indoor partition walls with large windows to let natural light filtering through.
She then re-configured the space into three bedrooms, two bathrooms, an office and playroom.
Mixing original features and adding new ones…
Keen to maintain & restore some original features, she then designed the new flat with raw materials.
Polished concrete, wood and iron add various accents around a palette of muted colours.
I have been a long time admirer of Valérie’s design style and if you’re not too familiar with her work, she is the Interior Designer behind the inspiring concept store MERCI in Le Marais (Paris).

I’m obsessed with those (catalog?) drawers in the back. Do you know exactly what they are called so I can start keeping an eye out for some xxEm
Hi Emma I’m not sure of the exact name. In French, I would call them “casier” “casier de tri” You might be able to find some on ebay or maybe contact Laurent at http://lebeauestmien.com/en/ which specialises in vintage, industrial furniture
Hello, I’m a big fan of your blog.
Can you kindly tell me where you got the beautiful mint(maybe turquoise) colored teepee and the morocco inspired floor cushions?
Hi Katie the cushions were from a company called BombayDuck and I think they still do them. I will need to get back to you re. the teepee because I forgot 😄
Thank you so much! I have been looking everywhere to find the same cushions and the teepee .
I eventually remembered…the designer of the teepee is Mylene Scotto she is French and has a fb page. I don’t know if she still makes them
Wow! Thank you so much to take your time to answer my questions. I’ll definately take a look at her online store.
you’re very welcome! :-) Wishing you a merry Christmas and a happy new year!
Hi Katie, I tracked the Designer of the teepee down. Her new store is this one https://www.georgesstore.com/shop It doesn’t like she has the teepee on it but it’s worth asking her if she has any left.
