A Charming French Family Home Full of Inspiring Details

By | December 4, 2018

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*.  

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.

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?
