After 20 years of marketing, two sons and a stop at ISCD to study colour and design, French-born Valérie Moreno dived head first into a new career path: home decoration.
Bastille and Sons is her debut collection of contemporary designer brands and lifestyle accessories hand-picked in France. Every single original product is the combination of talented creative designers and the savoir-faire of highly skilled craftsmen.
Born in Toulouse, followed by 15 ‘amazing’ years in Paris before moving to Sydney with her family, Valérie returns to France regularly to seek out new products made in the pure artisanal tradition. She even features many young talented designers and their highly skilled craftsmen on her blog.
“Every brand has its own story – a designer, a region, an authentic savoir-faire. It was time to share my passion for unique contemporary French artisan homeware brands with fellow interior design lovers in Australia, through Bastille and Sons. We want to open a window on the French bubbly contemporary design scene: share the understated French chic without French Provincial clichés.”
