A Beautiful Vintage-industrial Inspired Living Space in France

Hej, or should I say 'bonjour! in the language of love - something of which I am hoping to spread today on Valentine's Day with this dreamy open-plan room in France! Alexandra - who owns online antique furniture boutique Petite Belette and runs online 'upcycling' masterclasses - describes her home and workshop as "a universe made of forgotten furniture, of raw and simple materials that respond to the adage: 'nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed,' (Antoine Lavoisier). I couldn't resist sharing this light-filled room, packed with personality - and yet at the same time cosy and calm. A perfect place to curl up with a book!

Eclectic furniture, industrial touches and rough walls rich in patina all help to create this wonderful room!

A library of books wait to be plucked from the shelf before curling up on the sofa. 


Imagine all that light! 

Could you imagine pottering around this room today? 

Wishing you all a happy St. Valentine's Day and a wonderful start to the week!

  1. I was disappointed that there weren't more pictures. Such a fun and creative space. I'd love to "explore" all the nooks and crannies.

    1. I would have loved to have seen more as least we got a good shot of the kitty.

    2. Agreed. I am totally in love with this place!

    3. Happy you enjoyed this snapshot! , I'll have to to some digging around, see if I can find pictures of the entire house!

  2. A great arrangement with a small space. I would like to see the kitchen and bedroom, I imagen it also is properly arranged, but I would still like to see.

    1. I hear you! I'll see what I can find for another day - watch this space!

  3. Love the inviting warmth of your design...Love the free standing wall divider.
    If you could share how you installed the wall. I have a large space in need of a
    partition such as yours...

    1. I wish this was my home and design but all cred goes to Alexandra. You could try contacting her via her website or instagram (mentioned in the post), I'm sure she'd be happy to advise.
