I would love to get your feedback on our latest catalogue

Here is my latest baby…A small yet beautiful, inspiring catalogue, packed with styling & decorative ideas to show you how to create inspiring, welcoming and beautiful family homes (you can view it on issuu here).While it’s lot of hard work to put something like this together (and it costs an arm!), I thoroughly enjoy the creative process and it’s quite amazing after months of hard work for us to hold a print copy in our hands (no it doesn’t break my heart when you want to be taken off our list…#just a little #ItTotallyBreaksMyHeart #labouroflove #justkidding).We won an Award with our first catalogue but I’m specially proud of this one because this time, I was able to style everything so there isn’t a single spread I don’t like but I have my favourites…OK.. I’m in love with our NATURALS // moodboard on page 4 & 5, it’s a collection that I sourced when I went to Paris at the beginning of the year and that really inspired me.Unfortunately, one of these gorgeous chopping boards is already sold out …

BODIE and FOU SS/2013 catalogue D-7

Next Friday, our new catalogue will land on our UK customers doorsteps and I can’t wait to hear your reactions. I genuinely think it’s our best ever! In the past, I had to let go of things because we didn’t have the time or budget to shoot things the way I had envisioned them and that’s ok. It didn’t stop us from winning an amazing ECMOD Award last year with our first catalogue.But when it comes to BODIE and FOU, I’m a perfectionist and I know it can be better, I knew we could be better and I’m really proud to say that this ONE is our best catalogue ever so a big thanks to my team: Sophie, Doryan, Francois and Nicky who designed it for us this year.There isn’t a single spread I don’t like and I deliberately kept some pages and styling under wrap because I want you to be happily surprised with it.SO… If you live in the UK If you’ve received our catalogue in the past and haven’t moved, then you will …

Wow…it has been very busy today!I was planning to show you Mila’s bedroom update but I will do it over the weekend.Between our VIP Enews that went out yesterday and our BODIE and FOU Autumn catalogue* that landed on our customers’ doorsteps today, it has been totally mad!We have packed so many order for our beautiful linen collection to send all over the place, it’s insane! but it makes me really really happy because its success means that we will be able to have more colours in our Spring/Summer collection.I already have the styling in mind and I can’t wait to start working on a few kids rooms (watch out for the Spring/Summer 2013 catalogue!)Last but but not least (bear with me…this is my “Award-winning” kind of thank you speech…), I would also like to thank from the bottom of my heart, our hard-working, passionate and dedicated little team especially Sophie who masters catalogue production & deadlines like no-one, Francois for his amazing photos and Doryan who recently joined us and has been very busy with the new collection and …

Sneak-peek of our catalogue: White Xmas spread

We just received the first copies of our Autumn catalogue* which is being mailed to customers on Friday. It’s always quite something for Soph’ and I to see months of hard work finally in a print form. The White Christmas double page (the spread as we call it) below is a new format we introduced to reflect our love for mood boards, masking tapes and Pinterest but also to put together a lovely and unique selection of gorgeous and unsual gifts for everyone.My top 4 favourites under £30 are– the white tealight holder: £15 each– the decorative star: £15 each– the handmade Star garland: £20– and the set of ceramic polar bears which looks really cute in a kids bedroom: £28Also our lovely ceramic white owl is now back in stock *Request a copy HERE http://feeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/UxVs

Looking for inspiring ideas? Here is a sneak-peek of our Autumn catalogue

One week to go and we wil receive the first copies of new Autumn catalogue…I’m super excited! It has been a mammoth job for our team between the new site, the new collection and the Christmas catalogue which is bigger than our Summer one but everything looks amazing! One of my favourite spread is the WOOD+COPPER+LINEN shot by Francois which I styled. OK I admit I’m totally biased given that everything we put in our collection are things we love but this beautiful washed linen collection just makes my heart beat a bit faster. When we shot the cover of our Summer catalogue, I couldn’t resist and treated myself with the blue grey duvet cover and since then added the pure white duvet cover. Elodie bought the soft grey duvet cover which she mixed with white pillow cases – Gorgeous! And the more I stare at the new mustard duvet cover, the more I want it, who is with me on this!? :-) Make sure you request a copy of our catalogue HERE The gorgeous handmade star garland can be found here http://feeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/UxVs

Behind-the-scene photoshoot with a Danish team

Yesterday, my home was photographed & styled by a Danish team…I was busy working on our new site in the kitchen so I let them get on with it. After 3 photoshoots in the space of a few weeks including my favourite in MILK Decoration, I wasn’t sure how different their shots could be from what we had seen before but the stylist was very good and they made some great photos.The photo on the wall next to the BAU pendant light (photo 2) is one of Mila taken by Francois (who has now a new website here). I will show later on the whole series we did around this gorgeous black tutu – it looks fabulous!The Monkey print is part of our AW 2012 collection and should arrive this week. If you haven’t requested a copy of our new catalogue, make sure you do it here.Have a great day! http://feeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/UxVs
