A Cool Yet Calm Rose-tinted French Family Home

Every now and again I come across an entirely unique home that totally draws me in. This is one of them. The house (from the early 1900s) is located in Nancy, North East France and belongs to Coralie, so doctor,  her partner Nicolas, an architect, and their three adorable children. Coralie has a penchant for pink - the dominant accent throughout their home - but twee it's not. Her preferred pink is distinctly calming (Setting Plaster by Farrow & Ball to be precise) and when paired with neon, brass, ochre, wood and rattan it emits a wonderfully bang up to date look that's cool and contemporary yet incredibly calm. Ready to feel inspired? Pull up a seat and enjoy the tour - I've added a few tips on where items are from - just in case you'd like to get the look at home!

Lamp: DIY (how cool is that?) - see Coralie's instagram highlights for more info.

Such a wonderful home! The pink hue is spot on, and there are so many great details! 

Could you imagine having a dusty pink accent in your home? Or perhaps there were some pieces / details that really stood out to you? Share your thoughts below, I'd love to hear from you!

There are a ton more French homes to feel inspired by here. 

I'll be back tomorrow with a charming, pared back Danish cabin - I think you're going to like it, so make sure you stop by!

  1. That countertop is so amazing! never seen anything like it. I love this shade of pink and am amazed that they were able to use it in the whole house without me thinking "again?" or feeling it's too much. My bedroom is painted in Pink Ground by F&B but now I am thinking maybe I should change it to Setting Plaster for a small change. Beautiful home.

    1. I agree, I've never come across a worktop like that before either - incredible! Setting plaster is a beautiful tone. I'm tempted too!

  2. I love the wicker/rattan accents and the wallpaper in both children's bedrooms.

    1. Yes, agree with you. My younger daughter is really keen to create an indie bedroom, I've been trying to help her but it's a bit out of my comfort zone LOL! I think some rattan / wicker and fairylights would go a long way though.

  3. This is one of the most ridiculously warm, perfect fairytale homes I have ever seen. The kiddo outfits are super adorable, too. Love Setting Plaster soooooo much.

    1. I'm so happy you felt inspired by this home as much as I am. I agree with you, it's a real fairytale of a home - and that setting plaster tone is perfection!

  4. Such an inspiration! I agree with you, this home is stunning. I wish I could have such a vision for mine :)
