La Frénésie – Vintage Interior Design & Decor

A furniture & design-shop where Caroline Moreau has created her own vintage paradise..

The newly opened shop La Frenésié is located next to the popular vintage market Marché aux puces in Bruxelles. It’s a place where you can find vintage interior design furniture and decor, as well as flowers and outdoor plants.

The owner Caroline Moreau is originally from France but based in Bruxelles since a long time where she lives with her man and their 2 kids. In her shop she has managed to create her own little paradise where she has gathered all the things that she loves. Stepping in to La Frénésie is like traveling to the 50’s, except for the space it self which is fresh and light and simply a perfect canvas for all the beautiful furniture and cute little objects.

Caroline collects and renovates vintage interior design pieces that she sells in her shop. She also repaints decor that she combines with fresh flower arrangements. At the moment you will find bright pastels and fresh colors that suits perfect for summer.

Before she started her own shop, Caroline was working as a florist. This is something that she decided to take with her. In between that and opening her shop, she was unemployed for a couple of years. This period was crucial, she tells me. This is when she finally decided to realize the dream that she had since a long time. During meetings and brainstormings with other people in search of their next career move, Caroline gradually started to shape her dream in to a reality.

When I get up in the morning, it never really feels like I am going to work because I always look forward to being in the shop..”

Working is now a pleasure for Caroline and the area around the market offers a lot of social interaction between the different shop owners. The market is full of visitors during the weekends but in the week the tempo is calm and it let’s her the time she needs to work on renovations and other arrangements. Caroline has succeeded to combine all the things that she loves in her shop. Since there are so many different things to work with, the job stays interesting and exciting.

When she is not working with the shop, she is devoted to music which is another one of her passions. She sings in the Rockabilly band “The Saint-Gillbillies” and their records are sold in her shop. The band is a group of friends who share the love for rockabilly/country/surf music. During the summer they play live at several locations. If you like that kind of music, make sure to check out the band page for upcoming concerts.

“I have never been happier..”

Caroline is a woman who lives her 50’s image and she happily invites the visitors in to her universe at La frénésie. The shop is not that different from her home that’s also filled with vintage interior design but she has now found her very own space where she decorates and rearranges as she pleases. When she finds a break in her day, she can simply sit down next to her flowers and look out over the market and chat with friends passing by..

Midsummer Flowers

Everything that is blooming at the moment..

Midsummer flowers and celebrations is what today is all about. Today is the day we swedes celebrate midsummer and I thought that it’s a great day to notice things that are blooming around me.

I just recently came back to Bruxelles after a few weeks of holidays and now that I have landed a bit, I have had the time to visit some markets and spend some time walking around the neighborhood. Yesterday I went to pick up a nice bouquet of roses in the little flower shop not far from home. It’s always nice to have some flowers at home to brighten up the day and they smell so good too.

The sundays here in Bruxelles is a great day to visit markets. I went to “Jue de Balle” and I found a lovely floral print vintage fabric from the 40’s that will be perfect for a summer dress. At the side of the market, a friend of mine has opened a shop called La Frenesie where she is selling furniture and pretty little objects for the home. All of the shop is filled with treasuries from the 50’s that she reworks and renovates with a very personal touch.

I wish you all a nice midsummer!
