Natural bedroom styling in France

A few weeks ago, I updated the styling of one of the bedrooms in this holidays home which you can rent via Airbnb. Bearing in mind that the house is for sale and I can’t give it too much of a strong identity so everyone visiting it, can project their own style, I have decided to leave the walls white and add small styling touches to create a happy vibe. This was an inexpensive styling job (only about 15 euros for the stretched canvas), a few tear sheets, my BE HAPPY print, some family photos and quotes found on Pinterest.

Black & white styling from the Makelight workshop

On Saturday, I attended a photography workshop run by Emily Quinton and what a treat it was. I have meant to pick up my camera again for some times now but I was quite disappointed by the course I took last year at the London School of Photography and being too busy with the shop I put it off for another year.

We have a new hue in our linen collection called Cloud grey…dreamy isn’t it!? I just want to spend the rest of the day in this room. What do you think? Shall we have a cup of tea, GF free brownies and a chat?

New prints by Polly Rowan

We have two very special prints in our collection…The Cactus print and the Plumes print which we styled in my home in London. 1. Industrial Clothes rail | 2. Milk Table lamp 1. Notebook | 2. Wooden stool  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 collection…L’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 …

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, …

Boyfriend jeans | Outfit perfection

My sister Elodie got her order from Hush Homewear delivered to my office and since I saw these boyfriend jeans on her over the weekend, I’m even more excited to receive mine. I’m having a massive crush on her shoes too which are from Cosmoparis bought at the Galeries Lafayette in Paris. Don’t you think they look amazing?! // Sheer crew t-shirt is from here | Lipstick: Chanel No 9 | Photography & Styling: Karine Köng | All Rights Reserved Sharing is caring ❤️ Leave a comment and let’s have a chat… http://feeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/UxVs

Mila for Laura Ashley

Just before Christmas, Laura Ashley contacted me to take part into their new campaign challenge “15 uses for a throw“. As we were about to leave for New-Zealand to spend time with family and I had very little time left, I packed the beautiful throw I received and took it to the Coromandel Peninsula (a beautiful part of New-Zealand on the north island).
