i could live here: a converted waffle factory in lille.
by french by design comment




i went all oh la la when i discovered this house tour. it has all the components i love in an interior: scandinavian design, 1950s industrial elements, factory building features, and to top it off, it’s in france — ok, i may slightly be biased on this last feature, i’ll admit.

moments away from europe’s largest flea market, known as ‘la braderie’ — which happens once a year in september in lille, france – this old waffle factory was converted into a spacious home where pascal françois, a professional photographer, his wife fanny and their two children, jules and anouk, enjoy flea market hunting and filling up their home with handpicked vintage treasures. although the space is mainly furnished with salvaged pieces, pascal and fanny’s interior is very modern and liveable. like i said, oh la la!

  1. Wow this loft is unreal! Sometimes loft give off a cold feeling, but this loft has a softness to it that gives off a welcoming warm vibe. It looks cozy and inviting. All of these images are pin worthy. Thanks for sharing this loft!
