One cool, must-have bracelet on my list.....

Christmas + Day 3...a very in-active afternoon which felt really good....
The boys are watching a DVD (after going to bed at 8am today that's all they can manage...), Mila and Lily are playing on the computer, Elodie is sewing a blouse for Lily supervised by her 'sewing' Jedi (our mum) while I was looking for inspiration to decorate Mila's bedroom in our new family house in London.
I'm looking at the pics I took over the past few days...so many happy moments...
Christophe offered a beautiful La Trop bag and a leather wrist wrap by Clare Vivier to Bodie and after seeing this gorgeous bracelet on her, I know now that I will treat myself to one when we go back to work. When the stock arrived, they were so beautifully wrapped that I didn't dare to unwrap one in case I would do a crappy job to put it back but this bracelet is looking even more gorgeous in reality than on the photo.

About 'moi'

My name is Karine Candice. I'm French, I live in London with a New-Zealander and I'm the maman of a 5 years old freewi* called Mila Sienna.

I'm also the Creative Director and Co-Founder of chic online concept store BODIE and FOU which I launched with my sister Elodie in 2005 (pictured below with the sunglasses).

In this blog, I write about everything that inspires me...interior design, house tours, photography, children stuff, my DIY projects in our home in London (you can see the work in progress on the blog) and our holidays home in France, about news from our concept store.
I also write about things that makes me laugh, what Mila says and about personal stuff (because sometimes, running your own business, being a mum, making time for friends, etc..and have time for oneself, gets JUST a bit too much!)
This year, I'm also a contributor to Poppytalk's new series, reporting on anything that inspires me from France...
BODIE and FOU is named after Elodie and I...BODIE because it is the way we've been calling Elodie since she was little and FOU because my kiwi thought I was mad when we met...it should have been folle but his French wasn't very good at the time so FOU it was.

I love WHITE and grey interiors, mixing simple, INSPIRING designs with flea-market finds to create relaxed, child-friendly INTERIORS.
I adore VANESSA PARADIS, Charlotte Gainsbourg (I'm French after all!). I admire Jacqueline MORABITO, love food, fashion, designs, taking PHOTOS and having a good time with my friends and FAMILY (see below).

If you have any tips, suggestions, want to send me some chocolates/gifts/clothes or you just want to say Bonjour! - leave a comment or email me at leblog (at)bodieandfou(dot)com

Joyeux Noel et bonne annee


The last four weeks have been mental at the warehouse, we've been inundated by orders, more than we expected...and as a consequence we had to work from 8am until 11pm most days and weekends. I can't tell you how exhausted I was....
As soon as we closed BODIE and FOU for the holidays on Tuesday, I rushed home, gift-wrapped a few more presents and packed my bag as we were up the day after at 4am to catch our flight to France to spend the holidays with the family....I finally managed to have a good night sleep and slightly recovered but the last thing I feel doing is spending more time on my computer so I just wanted to wish you all a fabulous Christmas with your family.
I hope you get the chance to rest and have some quality time with the people you love!
Thank you for all your lovely comments, contributions and inspiration
Lots of love
xoxo
Karine

A custom bookshelf specifically design and built for a condo in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington DC.

Stadtregale

Vorbild für die Anordnung der Regalböden ist der Straßenverlauf der Hauptverkehrsadern der Stadt. Die charakteristischen Merkmale des Stadtbildes wie Innenstadtring, radiale Einfallsstraßen, Plätze und Parks werden aufgenommen und finden
sich übersetzt in der Konstruktion wieder. Die 180cm x 180cm x 37cm messenden Regale können aufgrund Ihrer Standfestigkeit sowohl als Wandregal, als auch als Raumteiler verwendet werden.

SANTIAGO CALATRAVA

 Alguma coisa sobre o arquiteto e engenheiro espanhol, reconhecido mundialmente;
que inclusive projetou o complexo exportivo de ATENAS-2.004

Em 1974, licenciou-se em arquitetura na cidade de Valência,
onde também freqüentou o curso de urbanismo e de Belas Artes.
Mudou-se para Zurique para estudar engenharia civil,
 licenciando-se em 1979 e doutorando-se em 1981.
Nesse mesmo ano, abriu seu estúdio profissional em Zurique,
que atualmente conta com sedes em Paris e Valência.




O Comitê Organizador dos Jogos Olímpicos de Atenas 2004, conjuntamente com o Ministério da Cultura de Grécia, escolheu Santiago Calatrava, o arquiteto e engenheiro civil espanhol de fama mundial, para redesenhar o complexo esportivo para as Olimpíadas de Atenas (Oaka), com o desafio de manter-se fiel ao espírito dos Jogos, conjugando as tradições e história com a realidade da moderna capital de Grécia.

A capacidade de Calatrava de unir design e os elementos de alta tecnologia na engenharia, de um modo inovador e criativo é rapidamente reconhecida no projeto do Complexo, a partir do eixo central, um amplo bulevar pavimentado que se estende de este a oeste coligando os vários estádios olímpicos.
O teto suspenso cobrindo parcialmente o antigo estádio principal totalmente remodelado, a cobertura total do Velódromo, um elegante arco de aço enfatizando a entrada, e a estrutura de arcos de aço do passeio (Agora) protegendo do sol o percurso dos espectadores, levam a assinatura inconfundível de Santiago Calatrava.

Arquiteto Santiago Calatrava (Espanha) na Irlanda.

Moradores de Dublin deram os primeiros passos pela Ponte Samuel Beckett ontem após a sua inauguração oficial. Este é o segundo trabalho do arquiteto Santiago Calatrava na capital irlandêsa, precedido pela ponte James Joyce , que foi concluída em 2003.


"É raro que um artista ser capaz de contribuir com um projeto para uma cidade historicamente rica
e estou profundamente honrado com a prestação de Dublin, não uma, mas duas pontes com minha assinatura", disse Calatrava.
 "Ao trabalhar na Ponte James Joyce , desenvolvi uma profunda afinidade para o povo de Dublin,
e projetei que a nova Ponte para celebrar essa ligação.
É desejo sincero que a Ponte Samuel Beckett servirá como um monumento à Dublin, honrando o seu passado, presente e futuro ".

E de fato a ponte serve como um monumento à própria Irlanda, a sua forma concebida como uma harpa - um símbolo proeminente da Irlanda, com cabos de aço, suas cordas, e sendo o nome de um famoso escritor irlandês como no seu anterior Ponte James Joyce .


A construção da ponte  Samuel Beckett, começou a
em Roterdã, Holanda, em Maio de 2007
e envolveu a montagem de 8 pontes de aço para criar uma plataforma de 123 metros.
 A 46 metros de altura, poste de aço curvo foi fabricado
e ligado ao pavimento e 25 de proa e 6 cabos backstay
foram instalados para criar a superestrutura principal.
 A estrutura foi então enviada via barcaças para 628 milhas
 e uma terceira tentativa, o corpo da ponte foi colocado no lugar em maio.
 
Oferece agora um multi-modal de passagem que liga o norte e a margem sul do rio Liffey,
com quatro pistas para o transporte motorizado,
duas pistas para pedestres e ciclovias e espaço para carros elétricos no futuro.
Pousada em um cais de concreto reforçado,
 a ponte é que pode oscilar de 90 graus para abrir caminho ao tráfego marítimo.

Fold

Fold is a striking metal shelf made from a single sheet of steel hand folded into shape along lasercut perforations. The complex folded form, inspired by plant growth and structures, is efficiently manufactured using minimal processes which result in a product exhibiting no joints or welds and holds an air of mystery as to how it could have been made. Its assymetrical form is dynamic with clean and precise lines, which due to the lasercut perforations appear stitched providing a crafted and tailored aesthetic. As a collection the shelves work together creating a striking graphic pattern of cellular structures which branch out and colonise the wall creating a decorative and functional 3D feature. Usable in two orientations it allows the customer to create unique arrangements adaptable to their environment.

Here is BODIE and FOU Gift guide Part 4: Cool gifts for cool kids....
As you know, we are not massive fans of Barbie or Ben 10 themed toys for children. It doesn't mean that our girls don't have a few Barbie dolls they managed to get from their grandparents (and Mila was adamant about having her Ben 10 birthday cake earlier this year!) but there are a lot of young and talented designers who have designed cool, fun and contemporary toys and gifts for kids which we rather support.

From top left clockwise:

10. Grow height chart: £30 Available in red here
11. Le Rounard cushion: £36.50

Very excited to be in Harper's Bazaar

Well this was in the October issue but that how quick I am!
The truth is that things have been so busy that I haven't had a chance to check all our press but yesterday I got an email from Mia-Louise, the talented designer of these beautiful, handmade prints who was over the moon and very grateful that we managed to get her work featured in Harper's Bazaar. Personally I would like to thank Emma Love who put this Mono Mania featured together. Don't you love Harper's Bazaar!? I wish I had copy of this issue :-(



I remember perfectly when Mia-Louise and I started working together. She contacted me to see if I was interested in stocking her prints on B&F and one look at them and I was like......Hellooo!! Yeah! I just thought they were really beautiful and unique. We got them featured first in The Independent around October 2 years ago and gosh...the response was absolutely amazing. I think we were selling something like 40 a week....I was emailing Mia-Louise almost every day to top up our order. In the end, her press didn't take the pressure and died on her. So she had to find another press to keep the production going so we would get all the prints to customers in time for Xmas....It was really stressful but good stress!
If you want to find out a bit more about Mia-Louise and her work, you can read the interview we did with her.
Bises...I'm off to the restaurant.
