A Big Thank you.....

This week, we would like to thank you Passementerie and Inspire Inspire two UK blogs for writing very nice things ('a terribly smart and inspired boutique run by two French sisters') about us and products which I will detailed below so our designers can also see how much people love their work!

Thank you so much girls!

Passementerie or Passementeries Diary
is a lovely blog from Oxford about interiors, style, design and travel. Passementerie's favourites were the gorgeous Cotton Bud wallpapers by Selina Rose, a British designer Elodie and I have long admired and of course the stunning Cluster light by Kathleen Hills - which is now in our house in France (well two of them to be more accurate).



Inspire* Inspire aims to promote and support independent artists and designers and I recommend you check out Inspire* Inspire's post about Cameron Moll and his handcrafted intricate letterpress poster of Salt Lake temple which he produced over the course of about a 100 hours. The result is amazing.

Gingko art print by Bold & Noble

Our collection of art prints and posters from Bold & Noble is growing!!!
We have now the beautiful Gingko poster in stock. Elodie and I were really seduced by its beautiful, simple design inspired by nature and its uplifting hue of yellow that willl add a calming touch to a wall. Like all the posters, Bold & Noble produce, the Gingko art print is made from 100% recycled material and fits perfectly in the 50 x 70 cm Ribba frame from Ikea.

Advent calendar by Noix de coc'


This is one of the cutest advent calendar I've seen and it's by French company Noix de Coc'

It comes from France flat-packed and all you have to do is put these 24 little cubes together with little wooden sticks which are enclosed and there is also 2 faces per cube where you can draw, write whatever you like to make it even more personal!
This would be a fantastic craft project for the children




Update: Due to the volume of emails we've received, the Advent Calendar by Noix de Coc's is now available from BODIE and FOU.

One girl, one farm....

There is nothing better than to be stuck in bed with food poisoning to feel on fire two days later. I'm back to my normal self and I have bags of positive energy (plus my car passed the M.O.T which really made my day!) so I wanted to share with you this gem of an eco farm in the south of France which I saw in the August issue of the French Marie-Claire.
Are you gumboots ready? OK let's go....


Graine et Ficelle is an eco farm near Nice (South of France) set up by Isabelle, an ex-Parisian who left the capitale to follow her dream. As you know by now, I'm a sucker of these 'dream come true' stories because I think it's hugely inspiring to see so many women following their dreams but I also really like the relax, carefree, contemporary look of Isabelle's farm which is also a B&B and a cooking school for children.
Although her farm is now a little gem for families and children who want to learn about nature, getting there wasn't a piece of cake. Isabelle was not a farmer and had no real experience about eco-farming but she had grown tired of the city, wanted a change of lifestyle and be closer to nature so although she had no farming credentials until then, she had a huge amount of determination and vision!
As Isabelle didn't find the farm of her dream, she decided to build it - a massive job that only took 4 months in the end but which was nothing in comparison to three years of putting the project together, trying to convince the bank,the French agriculture body, etc... Once the farm was built, pigs, cows, chickens and donkeys moved in....

I really like how inviting Isabelle's open-plan kitchen is and you can easily imagine children getting excited and trying to get one of her homemade cakes or glass of homemade lemonade.... Between space, natural light, yummy smells from fresh food and this very long communal table (which I love!)....I just want to go there during the Summer and just be...you know, not doing anything in particular but just appreciate nature and its surroundings and have a chat with Isabelle while she is cooking fantastic, fresh meals with goods from her garden.



Do you want to get the look? OK so here are a few suggestions....

KITCHEN: Isabelle sourced vintage glass jars to display cereals from local flea markets but you can find some beautiful, vintage ones from Holland in Columbia Road or get new jam jars by Le Parfait from Labour & Wait (John Lewis sell them too). Ikea does similar jars but not as pretty and being French, I've a soft spot for the original Le Parfait preserving jars which look so much better. You can also display fresh basil in this herb stand. Kathleeen Hills designed some gorgeous ceramic pendant lights. The Kitchen units are the Varde range from Ikea.
BEDROOM: the white ball chair is available from here and you can get a similar lamp from Roche-Bobois. Skin Flint Design (one of my favourite websites) sells fabulous, reclaimed lights and vintage, distressed mirrors can be found at Cox Interiors in Islington but they will be expensive so if you really want to source great vintage French accessories at great price, go to Lille for 'La Grande Braderie' the first weekend of September (pure heaven!!)
LOUNGE: For a country/close to nature look, you can get sublime stools from Bleu Nature. Habitat also sells nice bamboo salad bowls to leave fresh fruits available to kids anytime and nice eco linen shopping bags are available from here.



For more information, go Graine & Ficelle

Alice Tait hand drawn illustrations

I got food poisoning for the first time yesterday and I was so weak I had to spend the whole day in bed wondering what on earth was happening to me. Steve was like...'check the swine flu symptoms!'...errm no thanks! Well I checked but it wasn't that and given I had gone for my early run at 6.20am before it hit me, I thought it was some kind of virus...So after fever going up and down, not being able to eat all the nice chocolate deserts Steve had brought me in the evening to cheer me up and then passing out on the bathroom floor in the middle of the night, I eventually woke up this morning feeling like I was back from the living dead.
So basically my energy level is very close to peanuts and before heading back to the sofa for the evening, I just wanted to mention the work of Alice Tait which I discovered via the Glove Factory Studios.
Alice Tait had been working as a professional illustrator for 5 years. Her style comprises of hand drawn illustration and type. She has produced a series of wonderful book covers for Chef Nigel Slater at Penguin and is currently doing regular work for Vogue and the Financial Times amongst others.







I'm loving her pigeons and her Paris and London maps are very nice but a bit too classic looking for my tastes and I still prefer the ones from Famille Summerbelle but if you love Alice's versions you can contact her directly.
