French creative studios visit of 2012

posted in Interior  at 9.09 PM from Home ! Maruéjols Les Gardons (near Alès / Nîmes / Uzès) / France
Last year, before visiting Asia, I knock at the door of 2 french creative agencies I follow and admire for a long time : Studio Poa Plume in Bordeaux, and the LEG agency in Paris.
 
If the Poa Plume are still in good mood working on their 3td Auguste Derrière book, I heard that the LEG office is closed, as Havas owns LEG and H, and mixed them in a futur bigger agency. I just think it is sad, and I am please to be freelance and depend only on my own decision...
 
So, I want to repost the photos and articles I done visiting these 2 places, as they werre only on the old blog archives...
 

Nice to meet you Studio Poa Plume

Tomorrow I will have a new home

posted in Interior  at 10.11 PM from Les Sardines Aux Yeux Bleus (near Uzes) / France
So, tomorrow we will have the keys of our new home. We do not buy a new place, we will rent it. We found a nice old house (owner told us it was there in 1790...), nicely restored with exposed stones and white walls... It is not the perfect place has it does not have a garden, but it has a nice terrace...
 
So, tomorrow our Hobo life will stop after 1 year and half without home. During this time, we stay in France around 6 months, in familly and friends houses. We travel from april 2012 to june 2012, with one month in Thaïland (Bangkok, Chang Mai in the north, Krabi in the south) and another month in Bali. We came back to France last summer and go back to Bali in september. We stayed there 7 months, and as we go often to Singapore, we have been there during almost 4 weeks. I sum up all this as I guess it is not easy to follow me ;)
 
I have loved travelling all this time, seeing all these things, meeting so inspiring people, it was one of the best time of my life. But also, it was confusing, and I am a little lost. Not having home is strange feeling, like not having roots. And having your life in suitcases is not easy ! People ask me why I went to Bali, and my answer was "because I can"... if you ask me why I came back to France, I would say "because I want" ! My aim would be now to have this nice place to stay and work and travelling as much as possible ! Let see what life will bring to me !
 
I want to thank all the people who support me during this trip, people who share these great moments. People complain about social media and how you lose time with them... but the main idea of these is "sharing" ! I was happy to share all this with you ! Next trip : being creative in a normal life ! But does a creative can have a normal life ?
 
Enough talk for tonight, here comes an amazing house found in the may issue of Elle decoration UK. Love the plants ! A friend take care of ours during our trip, will be happy to have them back, with the cats ;)

Work Spaces for a new home

posted in Interior  at 8.11 AM from Grabels (near Montpellier) / France listening Nahko Bear (Medecine for the people)
Things are changing... 3 months ago I write that I deeply want a space to work, and yesterday I think I found it... It is in fact a place to live, but as my life and work are simply the same... It is not exactly what I had in mind, but this is what I need and can afford now... So, I have spend (again) some time on pinterest and found this great selection of working spaces... I mix it with sentenses that touch me in the past days and let you know how I feel...

More "think" sentenses are on my facebook and pinterest "think about it" board. By the way, pinterest just get an update, small but seems nice... at the same time, flickr get an important one and let you have 1TB of space, unsane... So on, I may have to get back to it, as I forget it a little with all the other social media...

The grounds

This is not something I plan to post today, but I was looking for food images inspiration, so I came back to the amazing What Katie ate, which brings me the The Grounds, a Sydney coffee house set up in an impressive industrial building. Digging a little, I found very nice pictures of the place itself and on the identity done by Folke studio. I would love to have a place like this near me right no ;)

These are the photos took by Katie Quinn Davies of What Katie ate. I found interesting how the first images "show the place", but how Katie's ones show the spirit of it, emotions, feelings you want to live there... they are her vision, which makes the success of her amazing blog and work.
