Vintage country wedding by Moi Decor

One of our clients, Lizane, who recently got married sent us some of the beautiful pics of the decor she rented from Moi for her wedding day. She chose a vintage country theme, with grey and pastel accents and the end result was a romantic and lovely look. She made use of our aluminium candelabras (MD041), grey and white planters (MD038), petit fleurs holders (MD032), watering jugs (MD033), silver planters (MD025), vintage bookstacks (MD082), votives (MD011 and MD018) and grey lanterns (MD012).
Congratulations on your wedding Lizane and thank you for letting Moi Decor be a part of your special day! To view our rental items, click here. Photos courtesy of Photos by :: Denielle

We've launched our Comptoir de Famille concept store!

As of end July 2013, we're delighted to announce the incorporation of a Comptoir de Famille concept store within Moi Decor in Duncan Yard, Pretoria. Over the past eight years, we have been supplying our clients with this top tier French range and now our store will be offering a wider selection of Comptoir de Famille homeware, including the addition of the contemporary, yet vintage “Natives” range.

Comptoir de Famille, décor from the Heart of France, depicts the true essence and elegance that comes with French living. From the traditional red gingham bistro styled items, which are reminiscent of the street side cafes and boulangeries of Paris and the South of France, these products bring that French ambience which Francophiles so adore into their own homes.

The delightful brand, “Natives” has recently merged with Comptoir de Famille bringing freshness and fun into its products, from retro kitchen clocks, placemats, napkins, salt and pepper shakers to special tins for the tooth mouse and even bowls for your posh pooches and kitties.

Stock lines will change monthly, ensuring that our clients receive the latest offering and will also include new items such as home diffusers and scented candles, which bring the scent of France straight to your home.
Visit Moi Decor to see what’s new within this charming range or follow us on Facebook to keep up to date with our new stock.

Get this look. The mirror window

We love mirrors, not only for checking our make-up and hair in but also because they reflect light and add depth to a space. They are fantastic as magical decor elements in a home, making your rooms look bigger and can even be used as stunning architectural decor pieces or as artworks on a wall. They have the ability to transform an ordinary room into something which pops in a classy way.

We adore mirror windows, which we currently have in store. Use them by propping them up against walls as focal points in an otherwise ordinary room or place them in a garden, mounted on a wall to give the illusion of a secret garden, as it reflects the greenery around. Here is some more mirror window inspiration:

The fairy lights reflected in the window mirror and the roses in the foreground give a whimsical look.


The Scandinavian with French flair look is created using the stacking of handpicked goodies and rusted boxes below with a neutral colour palette in greys and green, using the mirror as a backdrop.


This room is given a "faux" window with the use of a mirror in the corner, making the room bigger.


Using a mirror in the garden outside, we like this a lot.

Get this look. The birdcage mirror

We are really infatuated with this birdcage mirror at the moment because it's rather unusual and elegant. The mirror is aged-tarnished, which creates an element of nostalgia whilst still reflecting light without being too blingy.

What makes this one rather cute is the shelves which can be used to perch your jewellery on, to put flowers in, to display tealight candles on (imagine the speckled reflecton!) or simply used as something to show off your treasures and goodies. By grouping any small item you collect together as a collection you can really transform them from everyday objects into accent pieces by presenting them all in an interesting way with this birdcage shelf.

Quirky and vintage inspired, the mirror we have in store currently is a shelf with a small drawer at the bottom, has a bronzy golden brown colouring with flower detail at the top and the doors can open and close. Dimensions are 57cm height x 37cm width x 11cm depth.

Here are some other fun ways to use a birdcage mirror in your nest and some birdcage inspiration.

We are very excited to announce that the newest arrivals of French Comptoir de Famille & Natives products have been shipped from France and are currently available in store.

Gorgeous new colours have been introduced in the gingham ranges such as pinks in the “Sorbet” collection and greens in the “Printemps”. The traditional red bistro styled range has returned once again, including the striped red “Metis” which is an absolute classic.

Round bistro cushions, square bistro cushions, tablecloths, breadbaskets, placemats and napkins are all available in the linens along with our popular printed-paper napkins.

Quirky and delightfully vintage, the Natives brand is now also part of Comptoir de Famille and we have some stunning and fun items including retro kitchen clocks, placemats, salt and pepper shakers and even dog or cat bowls for your posh pooches and kitties.

If you love anything French as much as we do, we hope you’ll also find these new products equally as charming and enjoy bringing a little bit of France into your home. ~ Team Moi

Tips on how to achieve the French look in your home

The French style is effortless, comfortable, elegant, romantic and charming. You can achieve this look by combining old elements, luxurious décor pieces with simplicity, giving attention to detail in even the most unexpected places of your home such as hanging a little wooden heart from a doorknob.

Key elements would combine rustic with glamour by be mixing and matching freestanding distressed furniture pieces, amoires, bold ornate mirrors, natural flooring, crystal chandeliers with exposed wall finishes such as brick, cement and aged paint techniques.

• Adding a chandelier helps to achieve the chateau look in almost every room but makes for quite a romantic feeling in a bedroom. • Creamy white colours can be used on bed linens, layering texture with velvet, lace or broderie anglais-edged pillowcases. • Extra length sheer curtains that drape to the floor can be hung on a simple rod in cottons and voile to allow natural light in. • Silver gilded mirrors hung on the walls, natural flooring, elaborate white headboards and pedestals. • Luxurious, tufted headboards or white rococo headboards.

• Keep it simple. •Freestanding bath tubs and basins. • Chunky baskets for rolled up towels. • Hang a candle chandelier for effect. • Again, use sheer curtains that allow natural light in. •Prop up gilt-framed mirrors above the basin or bath.

Living room:
• Mix and match furniture pieces like a generous armchair with one or two baroque chairs in the living room. • Make a focal point out of something interesting like a giant clock or scour antique markets for unique treasures that can be used as a focal point. • Natural flooring. • Linen fabrics and ottomans. • French lamps. • Repurpose vintage servers through paint-techniques and use them in a different way, for example as a tv cabinet. Alternatively use antique servers in the same way. • Living room can have French doors that open onto the garden creating flow between the outside and inside for a “country” feeling. • Distressed furniture.

• Free standing furniture pieces like a butchers block or again amoires to store anything from pots to groceries. • Details such as knobs and carving on cabinets. One can easily upcycle existing kitchen cabinets through paint techniques and changing the knobs to crystal ones or ceramic. • Rooster or chicken motives are quite popular as is red check, used in fabrics or table décor. • Linen table runners. • Pot racks hung from the ceiling. • Fresh flowers. • Upholstered cushions for chairs in red check, floral or toile. • A rustic wooden kitchen table. • Use plaster on the walls or a stucco finish to add texture to the space.
