I think you know by now that my favourite design blogs are the personal ones. The blogs that tell me what someone had for breakfast, as well as show me fabulous pretty things. To me, design is something that improves life, makes a dull day that extra bit more fun. Good design shouldn't be difficult.
And Bodie and Fou prove that. Not just with their fabulous shop (although frankly, I'd like all of their things in my house). I'm not usually a fan of shop blogs, but Bodie and Fou's works. I find out little design tips, home ideas and really simple ways to make life better. the moodboards are stunning, the photography is lovely and they're very much about making your day brighter. It works, too.
A lot of shop blogs are about just pushing new products. Bodie and Fou do better than that. They give you a little insight into their very glam lives. It's inspiring. There's even the odd recipe.
Besides, you get to see pictures of this little fella:
They call themselves a little black book of interiors (actually, I think Vogue called them that). That's exactly what this blog is. Go check it out. Pop the kettle on first though, you're gonna lose a couple of hours.
