Giveaway | Famille Summerbelle

This weeks giveaway is from the divine Famille Summerbelle.  You could be the lucky receiver of a NYC print based on an original papercut. The value for the print is $60. The print is unframed, size A2 (42×59.3cm), colour: red.  These prints are one of our all time favourites.

Famille Summerbelle is Julie (designer and creative director) and Simon (all the other stuff).  The name Summerbelle is an amalgam of their two family names and the French ‘Famille’ is just a simple but meaningful nod to Julie’s nationality!
What matters more is what they are trying to achieve. Their designs and accessories are created to achieve a delicate balance in decorating a child’s room: an inspiring and reassuring space for the child which retains the creative, elegant warmth that they try to achieve throughout our homes. A room for everyone.

We had a chat across the seas with Julie who shares an insight into her creativity and how Famille Summerbelle was born. 

How did Famille Sumerbelle start, what do you love most about what you do?  Famille Summerbelle started almost 4 years ago. We had just had a baby, and I wanted to create some original ideas for our daughter’s room. The Family Tree was perhaps the best of these – and is what kick-started Famille Summerbelle. We booked ourselves in for the next trade show, set up the website and we were off!

I love the creative development and the craft work most. Anything to do with the products really. I’m happy to leave the business stuff to Simon (my husband and partner)!

Favourite paper product – from us? I would have to say our new wallpaper (Un Dimanche a Paris). It’s a new design, and the first time that we’ve seriously got into wallpaper – and I love it!

The place in the world that most inspires me is Japan. It is such a creative country, inspired by design and of course culturally so interesting.

Are you what you wanted to be when “you grew” up? I think I’d have to say…absolutely yes! But that doesn’t mean I’m satisfied. I have so much more that I want to do!

What is your favourite hand made gift to give?  My dad always asks for a drawing (for birthday or xmas). I love to see the look on his face.

Black or White:  White
Tea or Coffee: Coffee
Heels or Flats: Flats
Short or Long: Short
Sweet or Savoury: Sweet
Night or Day: Night (but just because I LOVE sleeping!!)
