Snapshots From a Serene, Light Family Home in Normandy

There's so much to love about Cecile Fossey's calm oasis just outside Le Havre in Normandy, France (yes, the French streak continues - if I carry on like this I'll need to change the name to 'My French Home'! - does that have a nice ring to it?!). It's a house which would make Marie Kondo proud (have you seen her Netflix series?). Items are whittled down to a minimum and carefully selected to fit with the calm nature of the space - which is a perfect blend of white and light wood. Rattan, seagrass, wicker and other natural materials add to the warmth, while soft blue accents offer a homely feel. It's time to sit back and lower your pulse. Enjoy the tour!

In a relatively small space, building a half-wall helps to provide space for extra kitchen units and much needed workspace. The simple wooden beams make a nice change from glass window dividers and add warmth.

IKEA kitchen cabinets, brass light from Leroy Merlin (this Frama light is similar)

Just look art that fireplace! Isn't it incredible?! 

Smaller items of furniture like this cute junior rattan chair cater for the younger members of the family Capucine and Gustave. 

Tiles from Mosaic del Sur (look out for the tile edit this weekend!)

Light pink linen bedding*, mobile (pretty shop alert!)

As mentioned in yesterday's home tour, cane furniture is set to be big this year.  I see there's currently a vintage chest-of-drawers* like this one on Etsy right now - but you'd need to be quick! 

Raphael wallpaper / Sandberg (also seen in this 2019 colour trend round-up), rocking lamb 

Natural seagrass belly basket*, Cam Cam organic swan rattle

Such a lovely space - I wish I could whittle my home down to slightly less items too.

Having said that, fear not friends. These are mere snapshots of sections of Cecile's home and it's highly likely there are plenty of items just around the corner.

See Cecilie's instagram @Octobre_et_mai and shop away at her pretty Sunday Shop (I've got my eye on the wall hanging!).

For more serene white and light wood spaces I'm loving a dutch home infused with warmth and harmony, the beautiful white farmhouse of an interior designer and a wonderful white and wood holiday home.

Tomorrow I have a whole day workshop at an atelier just outside Gothenburg where we're kicking off a VERY exciting project. I CAN'T WAIT to reveal more (hopefully next week!!). It's something I've been thinking about launching for a while and feel really passionate about - I hope you'll be just as excited as I am! The only problem is, I've run out of time to create a Friday post- guh! But I'll try to stop by on Saturday instead.

Importantly though FRIDAY NIGHT is only 24 hours away - we got this! Do you have any plans?!

Whatever you do, I hope it sparkles!

See ya'll Saturday!
