A bit of soft grey inspo for the weekend… I’m in love these felt shades that were custom-made by i29 for this project and this rug that sums the weekend mood. Isn’t this duo gorgeous? We have friends staying with us here this weekend so it will be two days filled with good food, good wine and laughters, with trips to the skatepark with the kids, eating oysters and chilling out on comfy beanbags around Steve’s BBQ wrapped in super soft jumpers. What are you up? 1. | 2. |3. | 4. | 5. | 6. CHILL AT HOME:
To celebrate the launch of the new AW15 collection which now includes a Home collection with beautiful throws, I have teamed up with one of my favourite brands HUSH to create a Pinterest board to style their brand new home pieces. Once again, HUSH has some amazing things which almost make you crave for the new season to arrive sooner than later.
A few more weeks to enjoy the last days of Summer in pretty white dresses, doing yoga on the beach first thing in the morning before tackling work, taking bookings in our house in France for an Indian summer while working on our Autumn Winter collection and Xmas. Enjoy while it lasts… 1. This dress reminds me of this one 2. Norm 69 3. Universal Blueprint 4. look of smart
And just like that, a crappy day turns into a wonderful one… The weather is really beautiful in France but I got up feeling down by the perspective of flying back to London tonight and leave Steve and Mila behind. I should be used to it by now, I have been travelling between London and Bordeaux quite a few times this year but nope! It really doesn’t get easier and I can’t wait for this school year to be over and us to be together again. On the plus side, I just found out that the French Air traffic controllers are on strike and my flight has been cancelled which means that I get to spend 4 more days with my little family and that, my friends, has cheered me up big time! //1.

Yesterday I spent the day styling our next SS2012 BODIE and FOU brochure working with hues of blue, natural wood and linen which was very inspiring. Yet…in the evening, it started to snow outside. So while I can’t wait for Spring to arrive, this afternoon I fell in love and inspired by this collection of moody autum shots Blue Colette is collecting on her tumblr. Isn’t this gorgeous!? http://feeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/UxVs

Tonight, we are off to a dinner party at my friend’s place. Emma is Swedish, gorgeous, has three beautiful girls, a full time job and still manage to run on a weekly basis. Each time I see her, I feel inspired!Mila will stay there for a sleepover. I don’t know if it is a city thing, because I don’t remember having so many playdates and sleepovers when I was young, growing up in the countryside but I think it’s great for the girls to have so many playdates and sleepovers. It can only improve their social skills and independence.My brother is now back in London so on Saturday, we are going to do some photos together on Saturday. I’m very excited because our last shoot together was for the catalogue this Summer when we shot this workspace.And now that the …
Nadine, a customer from Sweden recently sent us a very complimentary email about BODIE and FOU, how much she loved the workspace section from our catalogue, how much she loved her Girls Fashion Style book by Paumes and how much she was driving her husband crazy with all her ideas. Now I can relate to this because I do the same with Steve but girls… it pays off to keep throwing ideas at them because eventually they rub on them. When you will see soon what we are doing to our entrance door, you’ll understand that my ‘All Blacks’ supporter has come a long way! Nadine sent us also this gorgeous moodboard and the pink cross she made (left bottom corner) with our cosmos pink masking tape. Isn’t this gorgeous!? I absolutely love it. Please send me more moodboards like this everyone! This wasn’t it. Nadine also sent me a very personal message expressing how much she believed big and great things would happen to me with B&F, how the business was going to grow, …
