Pop-up store new & a royal visit

The BODIE and FOU pop-up store at Vipp flagship store opened its doors on Saturday and started on a high, with the visit of her H.R.H. Princess Marie of Denmark purchasing our Limited Edition BODIE and FOU Vipp15 bin.  It’s pretty amazing, isn’t it?! Yes I did ask her if I could take a photo of her with our bin (if you don’t ask, you don’t get) and she very nicely declined :-) There is only a couple of bins left in the shop which you can reserve but they will only be available for collection from the Vipp flagship store at the end of the pop-up store and Vipp has now starting a waiting list! You can can also pre-order it online here. I’m really excited by Monday… We have an official press launch and a styling blogger competition like the one I attended at Vipp last December which is going to be really good fun. This time, teams of bloggers will need to style a kitchen, bathroom and table using products from Vipp, BODIE and FOU and from local designers. …

Limited Edition BODIE and FOU Vipp bin

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!?

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! You can see the New-York State of Mind print here in our holiday home in France and the bin in …

BODIE AND FOU NEW SS/14 | THE WHITE COLLECTION

I can’t say if WHITE & BLISS is my favourite collection out of all the beautiful mini collections we put together for our SS/2014 collection but it is definitively the one that makes me feel the most peaceful and calm so here are my favourite pieces for a blissful Summer… 1/ This Beaded chandelierShot last week in my home, it is an extraordinary piece of design. In fact, it is very similar to the chandelier seen in this beautiful family warehouse in Amsterdam but a lot more affordable as this one is made of wooden beads and not clay. Still, it is a very striking and gorgeous piece! 2/ These beautiful white cast iron candlesticks These are the kind of candlesticks I use in our home in France. They are inexpensive but they really look great and add a very nice French touch to a table. I selected three different sizes ans shapes for you because I think they look much more interesting when mixed together and they are great for an extended dinner party alfresco. 3/ These white ceramic bowls Smooth, tactile, …

BODIE and FOU NEW SS/14 | THE BLUE COLLECTION

It will look amazing on natural or white floorboards and if you’re on a budget, just paint a couple of cheap, wooden crates in white and put a few blue and white cushions around for your friends. You will feel as if you are in Ibiza or Greece in no time…The Nomad pouffe is also available in coral here 3/ The Souk embroidered cushionA great alternative if you can’t afford the Nomad pouffe but …

We all need a “Feel Good” throw in our lives….

I think one of the things I enjoy the most during winter time is staying at home and watch a movie with my little family, curling up on the sofa.Mostly because I don’t like Winter or rather Winter is not great for me.I suffer from S.A.D. and this Winter has been especially bad.Steve bought me a special light for S.A.D. on amazon a few years back which I really recommend if you suffer from it like me.Other things that I do to fight off this flipping thing is go out early at weekends to see an exhibition, brunch with friends or go for a bike ride by the river like we did last Sunday.Even if you don’t feel like it, light exercise, spend some time with friends and family and just going out of your home, is the best thing you can do for yourself.We have a few family traditions between us three and one of them is to watch a family movie together late Sunday afternoon. We will start watching something at 5pm with …

Say hello to Polly…

As some of you know, BODIE and FOU is an independent concept store which I launched with my beautiful sister Elodie eight years ago (just before Mila was born). It has been and still is a work of love, passion and drive and I can’t believe how many people we are now reaching through the world with our BODIE and FOU parcels. It feels amazing!As Confucius said: “Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life”.The other day, I introduced you to Doryan so today, I would like to introduce you to Polly who recently joined our A-team. Polly is very talented girl. Her blog has already been voted one the best interior blogs by The Telegraph and she has already done an amazing job on our new Christmas catalogue. If you need any high-res images for press or blogging, feel free to contact her, she is very helpful and if you haven’t met her yet, by all means come and say hello here on the blog.LEAVE A COMMENT THANKS! http://feeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/UxVs
