Laetitia Renevier ‘interview
Do you have a philosophy of life ?
We try and enjoy every single day, and first we try to enjoy our home: it resembles us and it’s the place where all four of us feel good.
Do you have a favorite place at home ?
Our sitting room is where everything happens: it’s where we all gather together, or just the two of us. It’s where I work, where the cat sleeps on his beloved armchair. The view on the Sacré Coeur amazes me everyday. Daylight streams into the room and it’s lovely to enjoy the sunshine from the balcony .
Do you dream in a particolar piece of designer ?
We love Coffee Table de Noguchi.. It has the right dimension, soft lines, the glass tabletop brings lightness and the stand which I would choose in natural wood is just magnificsient.
Where do you find furniture for your home ?
In our home, you can also find many second hand furniture hunted on the market or simply found on the street and repainted.We like furniture with a patina revealing it’s history. If they are damaged, I repaint them so as to give them a second life or we store them in the cellar with all the rest of it: it’s down there waiting and sometimes some of it comes back up here. We enjoy changing our decoration often: a fixed decoration is so boring.
It’s easy to create a nice home with a family life ?
Yes and no. If you haven’t got an eight years old daughter who likes posters from american series and a husband who’s a fan of street art…. I have to find a compromise between all of us!
You’re latest crush ?
Witches’ favorite rattan framed mirrors. I’d like to have a few to hang on the wall, but Edouard isn’t really keen on them. It’s not always easy to conciliate decoration and common tastes, even though we usually have the same desires.
What are you plan for the futur ?
To go and live in California, find a nice house in Paris or stay here
Have you a motto ?
“Do as you would be done by”
How do you choose the name of your children ?
Caesar, we started from the South of France, from the Provence, Pagnol’s region and we went across Yves Montand and Rosaly’s area. Marguerite appeared just like a flower, at the very last moment.
