Chic Life: Maison de Vacances

In boho chic, inspiration, maison de vacances on March 9, 2010 at 8:00 am

Lately, I’ve been really drawn to a French Company,
Maison de Vacances. Designers -and husband and wife- Emmanuelle Fouks and Nicolas Mauriac are masters at capturing the essence of boho chic. Yet of course, they do it the Parisian way which makes it that much cooler and that much chicer. The company specializes in home accessories and they are probably best known for their love pillow. Their catalog and website are full of inspiring rooms and vignettes showcasing not only their merchandise but also their personal style. From what I’ve heard, all images are of their own home in which they shuffle around light fixtures, accent furniture, and accessories while keeping the larger pieces as is. They also effortlessly mix all my current favorites-mid century, industrial lighting, great accessories and bold colors and textures. It’s a great lesson in buying what you love, investing in work-horse pieces, surrounding yourself with inspiring items, and constantly changing the smaller decorative items as you please.

Here you can see their jaw-dropping metalicized cowhide. Such a chic mix of items

Loving the Eames plywood table as a side table instead of a coffee table. And of course, the light fixture is perfect

Love the side chair, the light fixture, the bedside table and the poster on the ground seems like such a chic after thought!

The book shelves are to die for and I’ve seen the same part of their house dressed completely different. Their famous LOVE pillow.

All Images from the Maison de Vacance catalog.

  1. I have never heard of them…just checked out their catalog. The love pillow is super cute…have I seen it at Calypso? Thanks for the new source!
