A Charming French Family Home Full of Inspiring Details

Welcome to the world of Nathalie, her husband Damien and son Louis in Brest, France. The charming apartment is peppered with natural touches in the form of wicker, wood and linens and the walls are dotted with playful art against a backdrop of deep blues, soft chestnut and white. Ready to dive in and explore?

Friends who commented on the bed in yesterday's home tour (loved hearing your thoughts!) - look! A properly made bed! Yay! But I think what stands out to me most of all is the built-in headboard and shelf. This would be ideal in my stepson's bedroom where there's not really enough room for a bedside table. I love how Nathalie has painted it Hague blue too! The trip of flying birds are available from this Etsy shop*

These charming pictures are by Saar Manche (I once featured her home in The Hague here). 

Clever use of a half glass wall helps to light up the hallway and open the space up.

How cute is Louis' bedroom? I love the shade on the wall (it was already there when they moved in but it looks a little like the Blushing Peach I have in my bedroom!) and all the subtle, yet playful elements. The 'Lit Junior' bed is from French brand Mum & Dad factory and Nathalie sourced some of the wooden toys from Raduga Grez*.  

Camera grey lilacs, Wicker suitcase from Atelier Brocante (source a similar vintage one here*),  Wooden toys from Raduga Grez*.

The family dining room is simple yet interesting thanks to the mid-century side table, art from L'affiche moderne and Oak gallery and hanging plants.

The storage in the sitting room is made up of a series of String pocket shelves and cabinets from IKEA (I love this blend!). The 'Acorn' light is from Atle Tveit Design

What a charming home! I really appreciate how Nathalie's signature style runs throughout the home and pulls the entire look together.

I also love all the natural textures in the form of wicker baskets, wood toys etc and the playful art (so lovely for a family home, don't you think?).

Is there anything that stood out to you?

You can see more pictures of Nathalie's home over on her inspiring instagram feed @thalieandco and blog Thalie & Co.

Merci Nathalie for inviting us into your home today! I will be following your blog with eager eyes for news on the arrival off your little girl! Such special times ahead!

  1. Very interesting to see a boy's room painted that shade. It is not something you often see and I love it.

    1. Yes, totally agree with you! I love it too for a boy.

  2. Oh yes, love that bed! I also love the coat rack in the boys bedroom, have only seen the version with colors before but the natural version makes it look so much more stylish while still remaining playful.

    1. Great observation - I love the coat rack too, perfect!

  3. Hi, such a lovely home! I was just wondering do you know where you can buy the bird cage (in 1st pic of the little boys bedroom)? I keep seeing it but can never find a source for it. Many thanks!

    1. I think it is this light. There might be more places to buy but I know of this one. They have a table lamp as well.

  4. Thanks for your help!
