Toc-Toc-Toc…

Last month I received a copy of the dreamy Toc-Toc-Toc mag, a new French magazine published by Sophie. It’s small but delightful!Toc-Toc-Toc is so up my street….I was just beaming when I got it because it’s just the kind of things I love. It’s full of inspiring interiors from French creative people and I discovered that several of them are from Bordeaux where I went to Uni so I will definitively meet a few next time I’m off to our holidays home near Arcachon. It also features some gorgeous montages from Chou (thanks again for your wonderful gift!!) and I loved the look of Charlotte’s studio, the young and very talented designer behind Le Vestiaire de Jeanne. So if you want a copy, you can order it from here (it costs about £12 and if you want us to add it on BODIE and FOU let me know). Happy reading… Le mois dernier, j’ai recu un exemplaire de Toc-Toc-Toc, un nouveau magazine Francais (de reve!) publie par Sophie. Toc-Toc-Toc est tellement ma tasse de the…J’etais …

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. It wouldn’t be a bad thing sometimes to know what they’re writing about but it’s probably just a description of the photos so in the end, you pay a lot more attention to the details of each image and they always put a list of websites at the end or a mini guide or a list of flea markets, museums etc…it depends on the theme of the book. Reason 2: Each time I discover the work of amazingly talented and creative people …
