What are you up to this weekend!? I realised two days ago that while Mother’s Day is celebrated on 29th May in France, this Sunday, it’s Grand-Mother’s Day! So I’m taking my mum and Mila for a girls lunch at Les Pins Du Moulleau (if you come to the Bay of Arcachon, check it out, it’s a nice restaurant!). Wishing all the mamas back in England, a happy Mother’s Day! Here are some cool, fun links for you: First time I see Karl Lagerfeld without his black glasses. People often asked me where my vase is from…this one is very similar. Beautiful people but I’m not sure I would enjoy the pressure. I’m loving this jacket. We had a tiny, super cute little mouse in the house. Here are some tips to repel them the natural way. Would love these for Mila who is growing out of her current ones. Totally in love with this Kids’ Spanish brand Little Creative Factory //Photography: The White Company
What are you up to this weekend? I’m driving Steve to the airport as he is off to join a friend in Argentina on a bike road trip. Travels are high on my priorities this year so when he asked me if he could do it and be away for 2 or 3 weeks, I was like “yes of course, go ahead, I wish I could come with you” but now it’s departure time, both of us are not looking forward to being apart from each other :-) Here are some cool, fun links for you: The Dune of Pyla (above), which is near our holiday home in the Bay of Arcachon has been listed as the second best beach in the World out of 50 by The Guardian! Here is an article in Sud-Ouest. This video of David Beckham and James Corden cracked me up. I love this hotel in Puglia through the lens of Carla Coulson. Are you a hot skinny bowl fanatic? I finally got around to read this long article and it was so interesting, such a different area …
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.
Thank you for your wonderful comments on Instagram, the blog here and via email….really beautiful. I read them all and thought maybe, this BODIE and FOU Interiors book I have postponed writing for the past three years due to lack of time, would be a nice project for next year…will see.
What are you up to this weekend? We were planning to go to Bordeaux for the day and then realised it was black Friday weekend in France too so instead we are going to go for a long walk by the beach. I made my mum’s soup for lunch and if you’re after something healthy, easy and tasty to make, I highly recommend it…
What do you think of this bedroom?? I’m planning to knock down the wall in Elodie’s new flat in Paris, between Lily‘s bedroom and the lounge to increase the sense of perspective and open up the space and I think this is a beautiful example of what can be achieved, don’t you think? I also love the mix of throws and rugs adding warmth and textures to the room. Will be quite happy to hang out there for the day, won’t you? This is the house of Danish Artist Gitte Svendsen via Hunch
I’m deeply saddened and horrified by what happened last night in Paris and all my thoughts go to the families who lost friends, children, brothers and sisters, parents in these horrible attacks. A friend of mine wanted to attend the concert at The Bataclan but luckily, he couldn’t get a ticket. I’m also deeply saddened that we have to raise our children in a world where killing seems to be the only answer, surely there is another way!!? As John Lennon said: “it matters not who you love, where you love, why you love, when you love or how you love, it matters only that you love” Be safe and be strong. Love to you all xoxo PS: In observance of the three days of national mourning announced by our French President, the blog will not be updated and all upcoming scheduled posts have been cancelled.
