Fish on 25x30cm canvas
My last project, a present for my mum.
Hi, my name is Anne… from Anou Design and I make little artworks for little people in little interiors.
I am inspired by… colours, decoration and fabrics.
My favourite colour… well, all of them! I do like white and black together; but it is the combination of all colours that I like most.
My favourite season… autumn, for its red-orangy leaves.
My passion… Anou Design, my business I started in 2009. I design and make canvases for kids inspired by my own childhood.
Materials I work with… felts mostly, also buttons, papers, beads and fabric.
Three words that describe my style… colourful, handmade and French.
My favourite room at home is… my kids’ bedroom. It’s a fun space full of vibrant colours, handmade artworks, toys, French books and laughter!
I cannot live without… my computer or sewing machine
I relax… in the garden or sewing in my office.
I spent my childhood… on the beach in Tahiti surrounded by colour and exotic beauty. Anou is my childhood nickname.
My last custom order for a little girl.
I most admire… my Mum (a self taught crafter) and my Dad (who is neat, precise and technical).
I am learning… how to knit.
I am drinking… black coffee and red wine.
I dreaming of… travelling around the world.
I am currently reading… The secret of Channel No 5 and lots of decoration magazines
(Elle Decoration, Real Living, Inside Out to name a few)
I hate… cruelty to children and to animals.
My tip for decorating... Don’t be afraid to use bright colours! Break some rules, and don’t follow trends – just reveal your own personality!
