A French Photographer's Earthy Home on The Vendée Coast

Kicking off the week with snapshots from the beautiful home of French photographer and director Aurelie Lecuyer, husband Jean-Christophe and their three children in a forest on the Vendée coast. The 1970s house exudes calm thanks to the wonderful warm wood, layers of texture and earthy tones. Think surfaces dotted with lamps and foraged pieces, contemporary lighting, sculpted built-in furniture and shelves laden with artefacts, books and magazines. All the while, the look is clean, calm and relatively contemporary.  Be still my beating heart! 

Simply wonderful!

A perfect home with which to kick off the week, do you agree?

If you're loving the wood, you're also bound to feel inspired by: 

And of course - the magnificently crafted 'tiny mobile house' I featured on Thursday! 

Wishing you all a wonderful, calm start to the week!

  1. A nice blend of coziness without fussiness. I'm intrigued by the lamp mounted on the wall in the photo with the dog. Is it able to be moved where you need the light, or is it fixed in place?

    1. It looks like it's not hardwired (I can see the cord trailing at the bottom) so it is definitely moveable. Though you would have to unscrew the brackets that hold it on the wall and drill new ones in the spot where you are moving the lamp to.

    2. It is the Valerie Objects hanging lamp no2. I think it is possible to turn it as it is only mounted with brackets.

  2. The wood and the earthy-toned pottery give it a very calming feeling for me. Very nice! Thank you for sharing it.
