Aurelie Lecuyer and her husband have made their home in a former school near the city of Nantes. They entirely rethought the architecture and the codes of the old building with a surprising result. The space looks like a country loft with an emphasis on raw materials. As soon as we walked through the front door, our heart began to beat a little faster: from the color of a wall to a ceramic, we wanted to discover it all at once! As in a dream, everything is a source of inspiration. Everything is soft, refined and comfortable in Aurelie’s universe, who expresses her imagination at will. She was expecting her third child when she welcomed us into her very personal universe. Visite

I’m particularly excited to introduce you to the universe of Mariu De Andreis, founder of the well-known brand Zef, one of my favorite children’s clothing label. Her interior corresponds to her brand’s imagery: elegant and refined, with a mix of urban and bohemian, modern and retro, through which Mariu’s sentitivity shines. A poetic Parisian atmosphere with a touch of Italian inspiration. Visite
Madeleine and her five sisters don’t consider the vintage style as a transitory phenomenon but as a way of life, a philosophy, a family trade: recycling, redescovering and reinventing a fashion that’s as cyclical and inaccessible as ever.
With a writer as a father and a mother with nimble fingers who loved flea markets, all of the six sisters have inherited their mother’s passion : hunting around for antiques and sewing .
One day the six of them decided to make the most of their passion to offer us an unequalled showcase on the internet, an online resale shop which they naturally called Sixsoeurs. Madeleine, the eldest, is an expert in second hand dealing and the boss of this small family enterprise. And indeed, when you enter her home you can see that her talent doesn’t only express itself in the finding of nice old clothes. Come with me to visit this authentic vintage world.
When I first enters Edouard and Laetitia’s home, I found their style most appealing. Cosy and personal: every piece of furniture has a story to tell, and indeed they’ve bought very few new things. A lithography hunted during a trip, a carpet found in a second-hand shop somewhere in town, or an armchair from e-bay.The 50′s style is a bit of an obsession and it suits them well. Laetitia is a decoration journalist and she likes hers tidy and elegant. Edouard is a confirmed businessman and has just created the most audacious website to promote the sharing of ideas, but that doesn’t keep him from being totally engaged in the decoration of their appartment.Visite
This couple is the incarnation of happiness and the perfect family. Living proof that modern and often blended families can be a success. And Siv-Tone’s success story isn’t limited to her family life. She is the founder of Finger in the Nose, one of the most rock’n’roll and creative children’s fashion brand of the moment, and Siv-Tone has also started selling sheep skins and Scandinavian furniture. Nathan, for his part, worked in production for almost ten years, looking after artists like Sebastien Tellier and Mademoiselle K and organized French tours for Jay Z, Coldplay and Madonna. The cheery nature of this tireless socialite couple is infectious, an art de vivre that translates into their home.Visite
