It’s been nearly a year since I did a photo shoot in the beautiful home of my dear friend, créative and designer Lætitia.
Why wait so long to publish, you might ask? I have no idea, but it’s very likely that I just wanted to make it perfect to do justice to this lovely home. And as too often, the best is the enemy of the good.
The first time I visited this home (it must have been 5 years ago) I immediately had an ‘oh-wow’ feeling.
I loved everything in Lætitia‘s house, the lay-out, the light, the twists, the audacity and most of all the authenticity. Nothing was purposely styled, as in home decor magazines, it was real.
It was also the first time I met Lætitia and since then I was lucky enough to go back often, we have become friends.
Last year I asked her if I could write a blogpost on her special home and that’s how the photos below were stocked on my laptop for so long, only for me to show them to you today.
Looking around, you quickly realize that it’s the interior of someone creative!
Even if Lætitia comes from the world of industry, she is an engineer, she started her own business in home design, under the name of Laëgon design . She makes superb textile creations, in particular cushions, Berlingot bean bags and the Pebbles (cushions) in wool with veins stitched by hand.
The styling details in her own interior, like the letters and figurines in the photo above, are also expressions of her imagination. It’s fascinating to hear the explanations of where her ideas come from and the stories that accompany them.
So that’s it for this home tour of a lovely villa in the heart of Provence.
I hope it inspired you!
5 decorative tips we could take away from this beautiful interior are:
# Personal creations are always an asset in decorating your home. They testify to who lives in a home and avoid the feeling of living in an interior design showroom.
# Large plants are interior design elements on the same level as furniture. If you have a space that you don’t know what to do with, a huge plant always works!
# Dare to break the decoration ‘rules’. If you like something in your interior, don’t obey conformity. Rebel like Lætitia and for example keep your Christmas decorations all year round!
# Humor in interior design adds personnality! Dare to do something funny. And if you think it’s too much for your living room or bedroom, why not in a slightly more private space like the laundry room, your dressing or the toilet?
# Be bold with color! In Lætitia’s interior the colors are in the white, beige, gray, brown and black palette. Her purple sofa is just the touch of boldness to become an eyecatcher and it integrates perfectly nonetheless. You just have to have the courage.
A great thanks to Lætitia, I hope that she forgives me for having imposed myself for hours taking photos, to then wait practically a year before putting them on this blog.
