Fil de Fer

While tidying up my corner in the office, I came across a receipt from Fil de Fer, a gorgeous shop I visited last time I went to Copenhagen and thinking of it, I can’t thank enough my Danish Friend Charlotte for taking me around Copenhagen’s most gorgeous shops. I had the most wonderful weekend there. Copenhagen is small but I loved it! Fil de Fer (which is run by a French guy) was like a little corner of heaven and if I didn’t have to fly back to London, I would have left with a lot more vintage treasures, especially one of their gorgeous French vintage chandeliers, or maybe a gorgeous industrial locker….the shop is filled with stunning, sought-after French vintage pieces hand-picked by the owner and if you’re planning to go to Copenhagen in the near future, I can’t recommend you enough to go and visit this wonderful place. Fil de Fer, Store Kongensgade 83 A, 1264 Købehavn K, Tel: 33 32 32 46 Another shop I enjoyed browsing was Atelier September, that specializes …

I like this…

I think the contrast I like the most when it comes to interiors is when sleek, contemporary designs like this gorgeous cluster light are enhanced against rustic, vintage, industrial materials. Via Casalil http://feeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/UxVs

Exciting news

This week has been particularly full of good news…First, my brother – le Photographe – who took this great photo of Corto, his French bulldog, had one of his shots published on a double-page spread (!) in Focus, a Dutch photography magazine (imagine the feeling when you first see your work published in a national mag!).Then a magazine contacted me to shoot our holidays home in France and Steve’s tree house.This morning, coming back from his run, Steve found a lovely, shabby white wardrobe which is just perfect for our newly painted lounge and on the work-front, I’ve been getting some really good CVs this week for these two positions. So now I’m really excited to meet everyone for the first round of interviews because I have big plans for BODIE and FOU and I can’t wait to get started with a cool, enthusiastic team to make them happen!

I love this…

I love the industrial/arty vibes of these stools. In fact, I love everything about this shot from the new House Doctor DK collection…The vintage typewriter is adorable, I have a big crush on the table lamp and the E.A.T big red metal letters are on my wishlist for the kitchen. J’adore le cote industriel/artistic de ces tabourets.

I’ve given you a very nice pink one with a big flower on”Mila: “No, I want a bag like this” (pointing at my bag)Me: “Aahhh (it’s in the genes)….well I promise you, I will give you one when you are olderMila: “How old? Seven?”Sadly for my beautiful daughter, not matter how many bags I can get my hands on in the shop, I’m not the kind of mother who will spend £200 on a bag for a five-years old…or on a seven-years old for that matter…:-) I can’t wait for the Summer to arrive… via Hard to Explain Le weekend dernier, Steve etait au ski avec le travail (oui je sais..) alors Mila et …
