Unlocking the secrets of decoration

Unlocking the secrets of decoration

At Honoré, we have a passion for the thrill of the hunt. Mixing the old with the new is not a taboo for us. On the contrary!

Sometimes, we may be tempted to fill our homes with brand-new, shiny objects that scream "freshness." However, we never overlook the allure of vintage charm and the warmth it brings to an interior. Just like we appreciate the shade of a 100-year-old tree more than a mere 10-year-old sapling, the same principle applies to decor. Vintage pieces age gracefully, develop a unique patina, and exude an authentic aura that adds that elusive "je ne sais quoi" to your space.

Explore the world of thrifting: Uncovering Hidden Gems Everywhere

In today's world, you can find thrifted treasures everywhere. We adore the selections on Selency.com, Catawiki, and even the French Le Bon Coin. However, don't hesitate to venture beyond the online realm. Perhaps, the coveted item you seek awaits you at a local flea market, an antique shop, or amidst the eclectic chaos of a quirky bazaar.

Restore, repurpose, revive : unleashing the potential of Vintage Finds

Worried that the treasure you bring home won't find its place in your abode? Fear not! The internet is brimming with tutorials that show you how to deep-clean, restore the former glory, and even repurpose vintage finds. Don't hesitate to follow the hashtags #diy, #upcycling, #furnitureflip, and #trashtoterracotta on Instagram. You'll be amazed by the possibilities.

Our Favorite Markets to Visit in the South of France

Down here in the South, we have our personal favorites. The Dépôt Vente in Mollegès, the Magic World flea market in Hyères, the St. Nicolas flea market in Hyères, the delightful Chez Richard at the Arnavaux flea market in Marseille, and the hidden gems of Rue Fifi Turin in Marseille Rabatau. These local haunts offer rare gems, coveted collector's pieces, and a multitude of surprising finds that seamlessly integrate into our decor when given a creative twist.

Pro tip: Make frequent visits. Finding the perfect vintage piece may take time, so keep an open mind and exercise patience.

The next time you have the chance, let yourself be captivated by your local flea market. Who knows? You might stumble upon a charming pitcher, a statement piece of furniture, or an awe-inspiring artwork that will find its rightful place in your living room.
