French Bedroom Company Collaboration

French Bedroom Company Collaboration

blog final 2

I am super excited because this weekend my collaboration with the French Bedroom Company goes live.

My affair with the French Bedroom Company started when I spotted their Versailles Luxury Upholstered Bed on Pinterest, I knew I had to have it…one day.

That day came as soon as our offer was accepted on our house, which was bigger, with plenty of character, to hold this beauty of a bed.

Since then, I’ve been an avid follower of these guys on Instagram and have watched them win awards and accolades, for their incredible work.

It’s no surprise then, when they asked me to collaborate with them, that I jumped at the chance.

I was asked to write an article, be interviewed, style two items from the French Bedroom Company in my home, and create three images for an Instagram weekend takeover. Hell yeah! 

I knew straight away I wanted my article to be an interview with the founder, Georgia Metcalfe. Snap!

She, like me, has a huge passion for interiors and all things French. Having set up such a successful company with a young family is a huge inspiration to us all, so I couldn’t wait to tap into her life and see how she did it.

I’m only posting one image in this blog, and saving all the juicy content for FBC. So hop over to their blog and their Instagram account now. Don’t miss it!

While Paris has our heart, London est la vie, it’s where we met, had our first date, bought our first home, and more. In the past 8 years we’ve been to a fair amount of French restaurants, all of my husband’s choosing, and I thought I’d make a series of our Top 10.

The Ultimate Guide to Colour for French Opulence in your Home

The Ultimate Guide to Colour for French Opulence in your Home

Last week I was harping on about Parisian tones and have since had people coming to me asking for the perfect neutrals.

A perfect example of light rustic tones, the calming blue, light grey, and a pop of colour with a blush cushion. All neutral and super chilled topped with a gold chandelier and finished with a white fur rug. Walls are Farrow & Ball Cornforth White.

 

If anyone can master the understated look it’s the French, it’s in their attitude, their fashion and their interiors. Basically everything except love. These Frenchies are very romantic and wear their heart on the sleeve for sure.

Get the Parisien Apartment Look – in 5 Easy Steps

 

If someone says to you “French Decor” what do you picture? Is it rustic shutters, wrought iron balconies and mutual tones? Perhaps you imagine the countryside more, with washed walls, calming neutrals and vintage furniture. Whatever it is, it’s a super chic and glamorous image you have in your head, right?

Marrying a Parisien who has a huge family and tonnes of friends I’ve seen my fair share of French homes. While they’re not all like how we imagine (some bright red, some clinically white, and others sporting walls donned with large tapestry carpets), I am pleased to say that those Château de Versailles-like homes do exist. I’ve seen them…

What does your home say about you?

What does your home say about you?

I wouldn’t be a very good candidate on Through the Key Hole and I’ll tell you why. My house tells you so much about me and my family. The contestants would guess it in seconds.

According to friends and family our house is, in their words: “just so you!”. And I think to myself, well yeah, it is my house! But on reflection, it’s surprising how many people don’t create a home reflecting them. If this is you, then read on!

Top 5 Home Office Essentials

Top 5 Home Office Essentials

With the start of a New Year, you’ll find social media littered with bullsy quotes, ambitious resolutions, flexing muscles with a mean game face. Yep, that’s me (minus the muscle bit!).

This January, my home office was one of the many things on my hitlist. With over 4.2 million Britons working from home, an increase of nearly a quarter in the last decade, the working from home space needs careful thought to optimise productivity and creativity within the comfort of your own home.

Presents sitting pretty waiting to be unwrapped

Now its less than a week until Christmas it’s time to get wrapping (if you haven’t already done so).

Thankfully, I manage to save a small fortune on wrapping, by using the same method year on year. It’s now known as my signature style for gifts, and can be used all year round, not just for Christmas. The only problem is, it’s a giveaway for Secret Santa.
