New prints by Polly Rowan

June 18, 2014

We have two very special prints in our collectionThe Cactus print and the Plumes print which we styled in my home in London.

They are very special to us because they are the work of our very own Polly, who is BODIE and FOU PR& Marketing Assistant but also a talented Textiles Designer (check her portfolio here).
I think they are gorgeous!
Polly initially designed them in colours but I’ve asked her to do a monochrome version for us and I think they came out beautifully! What do you think? Which one do you love the most?

Nous avons deux nouvelles affiches dans notre collectionL’affiche Cactus et l’affiche Plumes que j’ai mis en scène dans notre maison de Londres.
Elles sont un peu spéciales pour nous parce qu’elles ont été réalisés par notre Polly, qui est non seulement l’assistante marketing chez BODIE and FOU mais qui est aussi une jeune désigner textiles de talent (jetez un coup d’oeil à son portfolio ici).
Je trouve qu’elles sont magnifiques!
Polly les avait dessiné en couleurs mais je lui ai demandé une version monochrom pour notre collection et je pense que le résultat est sublime. Qu’est ce que vous en pensez? Laquelle préférez-vous le plus?

The art of letting go…

May 6, 2014

I wish I had more time to post longer posts but we are crazy busy, getting ready for the BODIE pop-up store at the Vipp flagship store in Copenhagen and finalising our Debut print collection.

So rather than getting completely stressed out, I’ve decided to ‘let go’ and do little updates until time is on my side.

One thing I really enjoyed reading last weekend and which I think you will enjoy too, was “How Mastering the Art of Letting Go will Change your life” by Leo Babauta.
Babauta says that we keep things (clutter) in our home for various reasons…they make us feel secure and safe, they give us comfort, memories and hopes for the future and I can see that.
Most of the things in my home are there for a reason and I suspect in yours too…and often there is an emotion/souvenir attached to it.
I wrote here how I was starting to let go of the idea of becoming a mother again but this weekend I found myself, storing a pregnancy book aside while putting all my decoration magazines & novels in bags for the charity shop…and I can see now how much emotion and hope are attached to this book so it is going too.
At the end of the day, it is just clutter. I don’t need a book that I’m not going to open for a while and if I ever become pregnant again, I will probably download the bloody thing.
So if you’re in the same frame of mind than me at the moment, have a look around and think about all the emotions attached to the things you keep, it’s quite interesting and let me know what you managed to clear out :-)

Limited Edition BODIE and FOU Vipp bin

April 29, 2014

Finally something I can share with you and which I’m really excited about…
To celebrate the launch of BODIE and FOU’s Debut B&W print collection out in May, we’ve designed a Limited Edition BODIE and FOU Vipp15 bin in collaboration with Vipp.

I’m really really excited by this because Vipp is one of my favourite design brands and as both Vipp and BODIE and FOU are family businesses, this Limited Edition bin will be printed with our Love, Life & Family print design…at the end of the day, that’s all it matters, doesn’t it!?
The Limited Edition BODIE and FOU Vipp15 bin will be exclusively available online at BODIE and FOU and during our pop-up store in Copenhagen at the Vipp’s flagship store (another exciting thing I will tell you about when I’m back in London!).
Our new print collection will be online in May and also available during our pop-up store in Copenhagen.
I’ll be there for about a week and I hope to meet some of you there!

I really hope you will love our new prints collection and th
