Anne Millet, Reina
6 and Niels 4 years old

When you arrive at Anne’s you are literally transported to another universe. The prints, the materials, the inspirations come from far away. Here virtually nothing is local as Anne is a tireless traveller and moves around the world throughout the year. Effusive about meeting people, she never ceases to tell you about her travels, to show you what she has uncovered in India, Vietnam, Thailand…the list is long. Her strength is not doing anything like everyone else.

Anne where, in your place, do you feel the best?

Anne Millet

I like to prepare good food, so I would say the kitchen. I like to let myself be rocked in my rocking chair in the corner by the stove, so I would say the living room. I like to laze in the sun, so I will also answer the terrace.

Do you have a philosophy of life?

Anne Millet

Cultivating happiness. Make the ordinary shine.

What is your current favourite thing?

Anne Millet

The Maeght Foundation in St Paul de Vence. The perfect harmony between art and nature. I often think of that place.

Do you have a motto?

Anne Millet

Keep smiling !

What designer piece do you dream of one day owning?

Anne Millet

I do not desire a Le Corbusier chair, a Perriand shelf or an Eileen Gray screen. Although I am fully appreciative of their work. My personal dream is a panoramic view of nature, quiet and bright. Getting up in the morning to see this natural painting that is different every day and every season. This, that’s my dream.

Who is your favourite artist?

Anne Millet

Picasso ! I would have loved to spend a day with his talent in his studio, having him teach me the art of ceramics.

How did you choose the names of your children?

Anne Millet

My man is of Dutch origin. In his family, there is a tradition: the first child in a family is called Reina if it’s a girl and Reinier if it’s a boy. His aunt is therefore called Reina and his brother Reinier, so for our daughter it was Reina. Then for our boy Niels,which bears the name of an old Scandinavian fisherman. Niels also means Champion.

How did you design the decoration of your house?

Anne Millet

With a rainbow of colours…I think I need treatment! But also with some objects found here and especially there, combined with a 1950’s spirit. I like to travel far and bring back fabrics, carpets and objects bought at local markets.

What artistic movement do you prefer?

Anne Millet

Land Art pleases me well. My children initiated me into this art with 2 stones, a branch and a few tree leaves.

Do you have a restaurant to recommend to us in Nantes, Paris or elsewhere?

Anne Millet

Without hesitation : Once Upon a Time in Bangkok and La Maison Rose in Pondicherry.

Your next holiday destination?

Anne Millet

I travel a lot for work and for pleasure. Travel is my first inspiration. This summer we are renting a vintage Volkswagen van in Bordeaux and going down to Bilbao via the Dune du Pyla. The children dream of going camping. Otherwise, we are planning a trip to Sydney for just the two of us.

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...
