Vidéo

my place

Some random footage from my home that I originally shot for my parents. They wanted to see where I live since they still couldn’t come here to visit me in Paris in years. So I decided to edit it in a nice way, with a music and all…Then I thought, hey it’s been almost 2 years I haven’t been posting on my blog!
Hope you like it.

old house in Turkey

These are some snapshots from my elder aunt’s 120 year old house in the Black Sea region of Turkey (north). The house wasn’t inhabited since years, so it’s not in a perfect shape. and my aunt’s family has a kind of traditional way of living…but i like the vintage details, the turquoise walls (don’t even need to mention this probably) and the hand crocheted bed cover.

They gave me yellow-black -white printed pillows when I told them that I loved it! The fabric is from an old dress that my grandma once owned!

a corner of my bedroom

Hello, this is a corner of our bedroom. The artwork is a present from an architect friend. The hanger is from Casa, the necklace is made by my mum, the bedside table and lamps body are from flea markets, i painted the table to blue. The rug is composed by 4 small mats that i bought each for 2 euros. The lampshade is from Habitat.

lampe hallogene

Ok, let’s speak some french in respect to my french name (décologue) and to my geographical being 😉 From now on, i’ll use the turquoise color all the things i write in FR, and black for the english version.

Voila une lampe hallogene en bois que j’ai achete à Emmaus à 5 euros au moment de notre emmenagement à Caen, que j’ai ensuite decoré avec la technique du décollage. A vrai dire, je n’aime pas les lampadaires hallogenes, je les trouve ringards, mais il n’y a rien à leur reprocher pour leur qualite d’eclairage, en plus réglable!

So here is a wood hallo lamp that i picked at Emmaus (charity flea markets in France) for 5 euros in october when we moved in Caen. I decorated it with decollage technique. Frankly speaking, i don’t like halo lamps’ design, i think it’s corny, however, there’s nothing to say about it’s way of lightning which is even adjustable.

 

mirrors are beautiful

Yesterday, i had my day out in the flea markets outside of the town. I saw a beautiful mirror like the oval one on the left side of the picture above. In fact it was exactly the same. It was 18 euros. I don’t know why i didin’t buy it directly. I know this, each time i hesitate buying something and finally don’t, i regret it deeply. No regrets anymore, and more action 🙂

muse-en-scene: in the mood for love

Follow my blog with bloglovin
 

For those who don’t know me personally, I am coming from a « film making » background.  When i was planning to launch this blog, i had this category about home interiors in the movies. I call it « muse-en-scene ».

So here you have the first post of this category. I wanted to launch it with one of my favourite director of all times: Wong Kar Wai. I am a huuuge fan of his cinematography, lightning, simple and touching stories, characters…everything he does in fact.

In the mood for love is, in my point of view, the climax in his stylish cinematography. Interiors of Hong-Kong flats are so tiny, yet so ingeniously shot , Maggie Cheung’s dresses are in a perfect harmony with every scene she is in, yet  it doesn’t feel superficial. I love the richness of the patterns and colours on the walls, dresses, beds etc..I am not going to talk more, but let you see some of the screenshots i have. I almost wanted to capture every single image of this movie, it’s a piece of art.
