A Fashion Designer’s wooden house

The wooden house of a Fashion Designer

I’m particularly keen to share this beautiful wooden house with you because I think you will love both the plywood interior and the clothes by French Fashion Designer Aurélie Lecuyer.

Aurélie’s home also gathers three things that we all love a lot here: Interiors, Architecture and Fashion.

Her beautiful wooden house was conceived by Architect Thomas Walter from Atelier Ordinaire who specialised in wooden houses with plywood interior walls.

What exudes from this inspiring plywood interior is a timeless simplicity.

Like this garage converted into a Summer house, plywood walls have been left raw to maintain the feeling of a “cabane” (i.e. hut).
While decorative items like this Lappalainen brass mobile have been kept to a minimum.

I got mine from Tea and Kate, an independent shop I highly recommend.
They have a very beautiful and well-curated collection of goods for your home (and we owe to support and purchase from small businesses if we want them to survive).Leather TOGO sofa in a Fashion Designer's wooden house

In the lounge, a brown Ligne Roset sofa, beige curtains and a vintage school chair complement the light grey of the concrete floor and the walls.
A soft palette of browns & beiges that contributes to creating a sense of calm and peace in the room.

If you’re after a vintage TOGO leather sofa like the one above, this website has a great selection.

In the bedroom, plywood walls have been left bare.

While a large window like the one we had in our home in London, provides a changing scenery day in, day out.

I feel it’s the perfect room to unwind, don’t you think?
After all, what else do we need to relax? A comfortable mattress for a great night’s sleep and some soft stonewashed linen sheets that make you feel good each time you are in bed.

Outside, the house is covered with burnt cladding giving this wooden house a very unique, striking look.

Wood is, of course, used indoor and outdoor. There is also an obvious choice to let as much natural light as possible coming in.The wooden house of a Fashion Designer

Like the wooden house she envisions, Aurélie Lecuyer is creating a fashion brand with a sustainable approach.

To break free from the over-consumption and waste that fashion encourages, Aurélie Lecuyer aims to create a timeless collection.
Fashion basics that you will enjoy wearing days in days out.
Colours that will recall those of the land and the ocean.
Clothes made from sustainable materials that will last a few years.
