WEEKEND#

We are back in London for the weekend, catching up with friends, getting the house ready for new guests, soaking up the city’s wonderful vibes…and sadly temporary “escaping” more bad news.

Our white bedroom update

Here are a few quick and easy tips to update your bedroom like mine. As I mentioned here, I’m forcing myself to pick up my EOS camera again rather than using my iPhone and I have to say, it challenges me a great deal so today you will only get two pictures  :-)

London calling

I’m heading back to London on Sunday for a styling job, Ideal Home magazine is also coming to shoot our kitchen and as BODIE and FOU is exhibiting our prints collection at Design Junction from 24th to 27th, I will be attending our stand there too (I hope to meet some of you there!) I was struggling to leave this place when the weather was nice but now that it’s pouring down rain, it’s getting a lot easier.

Our tadelakt bathroom | renovations

One of the projects I most proud of out of all the things we achieved with our house renovations (loft conversion, new kitchen, the resin floor) is our Tadelakt bathroom. Its a material I have been wanted to use for years because it looks and feels like polished concrete and the results achieved really exceeded my expectations.

Our white kitchen | Renovations

I’m heading to France next month to supervise a new interior design project which I’m really excited about so before I start spamming you with idyllic photos of the Bay of Arcachon, I thought I would share some photos of the kitchen project we recently finished in London.

Loft conversion renovations, part 2

We’ve now received our new Sophie bed from Sofa.com so I’m finally able to share with you the bedroom side of our loft conversion (read Part 1  here). I still have to hang my black & white prints on the wall, add a desk and finishing touches but I think these first photos will show you what the room looks like finished given it was looking like this, this and this to start with! (more photos of our renovations here)

Loft conversion renovations, part 1

  When we started our major renovations in our London home, the first big project we tackled was the loft conversion to create a double-bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Once this new room was finished, we pretty much moved in and camped there for about 7 months while the builders were working their way down through the second floor to create a new room where the terrace was, then the first floor where we raised the floorboards and finally to the ground floor where we replaced the tiles and floorboards by a resin floor and fitted a new kitchen.
