A beautiful bohemian retreat in Marseille
Hello! I feel like I've really been mixing up the styles (and locations) this week with home tours in Sweden and Australia and even some festive AW15 ideas. It's been fun - I hope it's felt inspiring to you too?! To keep up the spirit of the week I thought we'd go all out bohemian today with the fabulous 19th century French retreat of Emma Francis, owner of French fashion label Sessun. Located in Marseille, the home has been decorated inside and out with items collected from all over the world including Laos, Japan, Morocco and Scandinavia. The rich browns, oranges and reds of handmade kilim textiles have been combined with the natural materials and fresh white walls, creating a lovely warm and relaxed vibe. And there's of course that view of the sea...

I wouldn't mind waking up to that view, how about you?! In fact, I get the sense that it would be hard to feel anything but relaxed here. Beautiful!
There are so many details and unusual items in this home, the more I look the more I find (look at those pendants over the outdoor table for example?!).
Quick guide: Source handmade kilim pillows / cushions here, this original miliatary army cot from the 1940's is similar (and fab).
More bohemian homes include a Swedish fashion photographer's summer retreat, a Mexican house high up on a hill and the home of a Melbourne florist.
A side note before I shoot off: for all North American friends on here - I got word that one of my favourite Danish brands Hay is now available in your neck of the woods - via the wonderful shop Blackthumb. Hooray!
Have a lovely day!
