My home in London

My family moodboard is shaping up…

I’m getting more prints enlarged next week including this one of my brother in Barcelona and one from Christophe (Elodie’s husband) pictured here. At the moment, I haven’t decided if I lose the black Japanese tape on the wall (the truth is that the masking tape keeps falling off the wall and it’s driving me nuts) and do something like this instead or maybe a mix.
I don’t want to frame every single photo because I want to retain the informal vibe that our family home has and I like the white space between each photo so right now, I just let it sink.
The two photos were taken by Francois and were my first attempt to interior photo stylism…

Mon family moodboard commence a prendre forme…
La semaine prochaine, je recupere d’autres agrandissements dont cette photo de mon frere a Barcelone et celle de Christophe (le marie d’Elodie) que j’ai utilise ici.
Pour l’instant, je n’ai pas encore decide si je laisse tomber le rouleau de scotch japonais (la verite c’est qu’il n’arrete pas de se decoller du mur et ca me rend dingue) et je fais quelque chose comme cela a la place ou peut-etre un melange des deux.
Je ne veux pas encadrer chacune des photos parce ce que je veux creer quelque chose de relax, informel, comme l’est notre maison et j’aime bien l’espace blanc entre chaque photo donc pour l’instant, je laisse comme cela.
Les deux photos ont ete prises par Francois et etaient mes premieres tentatives au stylisme de photo…

  1. pour le masking tape… of course… essaie la patafix(!!!)… sinon bravo pour tes 1ers pas de styliste… très prometteur je trouve… sans falgornerie… j’en connais des °stylistes photos° crois moi!!!

  2. I love this informal way of putting up pictures.. as tape I always use this masking tape (i think it is called like that.. its in blue and brown) I use when painting windows or making squares on the walls. If not using it like you did with the black one I fold it and use it at the back.. it stays perfectly on my cold concrete walls.

    I love black and white pictures of the kids and family.. I used to hang all this different shapes of black frames with pictures in it, but when I cleaned the wall did not hang them back.Every time I see this pictures of your moodboard I feel like replacing the pictures without frames and make a more comleted moodboard from my family as well ;)
    So many ideas … instead of thinking about it I should do my taxes and clean the house..

  3. Well I’m not surprised at all that you are a talented stylist when you have the eye for beautiful products… I can’t wait to see more :-) GORGEOUS!!!!

  4. I’ve had some masking tape on my walls for about 2 years and it hasn’t fallen off. Perhaps it’s the brand – I think some are a bit more robust than others. Anyway, it’s a lovely arrangement!

  5. J’aime bcp ton moodboard, le mix des cadres avec les photos aux masking tape, un côté spontané et informel… très joli!
    Pour le masking tape, moi j’ai utilisé celui acheté chez Merci pour coller des cartes sur le mur de ma cuisine, et pour l’instant ca tient très bien…
