London Family Style by PAUMES

A very big thank you to Editions PAUMES for asking us to be part of their new book London Family Style and to Helena from Agence Violette, their press agent in France, who co-ordinated the photoshoots with all the families (must have been tricky to fit so many families in such a short time). I have always been a big fan of their books so

I miss Petits Bonheurs….c’est bete, but I miss Claude’s beautiful photos of her three children, her impeccable taste and her talent.

Paumes, rain, Sunday brunch & monthly competition

On Friday I took home two new books from Edition Paumes to read them: Stockholm Ateliers and London Gardens. Well, read is bit exaggerated since I don’t speak a word of ようこそジュ and they are all written in Japanese but once again I was not disappointed and since you can not flip through it, here are why I love these little, cool Japanese books….. Reason 1: I love how inspiring and creative they are. There is a bit of text but it’s all in Japanese so your attention is really on the photos.

London Vintage by Paumes

A big thank you to Modculture and Retro to Go for featuring us and our gorgeous books by Paumes. “BODIE and FOU Fou digs up some leftfield gems when it comes to art and design. But this time, the retailer has a rather interesting book – London Vintage by Editions Paumes.Described as ‘the ultimate guide to the capital’s most sought after antique, vintage and second-hand addresses’, it claims to offer some ‘best-kept secret’ vintage shops, everything from antiques, architectural salvage and homeware through to fashion and accessories over 128 boldly-coloured pages.Downside? Well, Editions Paumes is a Japanese publisher, so the key details are in English, the images are universal, but the detail is in the Japanese language. If you can live with that, you can bag this gem for £20.”
