Welcome To Storybrooke

Watching TV With Magali (And Possibly Some Cats) - February 2015 - 2


Ready for some more sets from Once Upon A Time? I think this one can inspire many of you, whether you watch the show or not.

Prêt pour de nouveaux décors de la série Once Upon A Time ? Je pense que ceux d'aujourd'hui peuvent vous inspirer que vous regardiez la série ou non.


Today, Snow is opening her door for you.

Aujourd'hui, c'est Blanche-Neige qui nous ouvre sa porte.


You might be disappointed but in the show, Snow White doesn't live in a Cottage: she lives in a vintage-shabby-industrial loft.

Vous vous attendez sûrement à la trouver dans une petite chaumière au milieu des bois, mais dans ce monde moderne, elle habite un loft à la décoration mi-industrielle mi-shabby.


It's a very open concept. Let's see more about that kitchen past the very shabby island, shall we?

 C'est un espace entièrement ouvert, mais concentrons-nous d'abord sur le coin cuisine, d'accord?


Snow doesn't have a fitted kitchen: let's have a closer look.

Blanche-Neige n'a pas une cuisine aménagée : non, l'aspect vieille chaumière reparaît dans le côté cuisine de bric et de broc pleine de charme.


Old stove and vintage looking sink that Snow seems to have stolen from my Cottage.

Une vieille gazinière et ne trouvez-vous pas que l'évier vintage que Blanche-Neige semble avoir volé à Cottage ?


I like that vintage hutch between her stove and her fridge and I adore the fact that it looks rather messy and lived in, something you'd never see in a magazine.

J'aime beaucoup ce vieux buffet entre sa gazinière et son frigo et j'adore le côté bordélique de cette cuisine : cela donne l'impression qu'on y vit, ce qui me plaît bien mieux que les images lisses des magazines.


Have you seen the lovely glass doors on that hutch? And exactly how many tea towels does Snow need?

Avez-vous vu comme les vitres du buffet sont jolies? Mais de combien de torchons Blanche-Neige a-t-elle besoin exactement?


I feel so much better knowing I'm not the only one who irons her clothes right before going to work.

Cela me fait tellement de bien de savoir que je ne suis pas la seule à repasser mes vêtements en urgence juste avant de partir travailler!

Do you see that shabby shelf Snow uses as a pantry? It does remind me a lot of my days before the kitchen was remodeled.

L'étagère un peu branlante où Blanche-Neige range ses denrées me rappelle beaucoup ma cuisine avant qu'elle ne soit refaite.


In front of the kitchen area is a little dining area with a nice brick wall and an adorable old table that gets painted somewhere between season 1 and 2. Hey, Snow, I also want to paint my table, could you lend a hand here?

De l'autre côté du bar peint en blanc-laissant-apparaître-le-vert-d'avant, se trouve un petit espace repas avec une petite table et un mur en briques apparentes.


What I love most is the fact that the chairs aren't matching. Again, they tend to change from season to season, as the decoration on the shelves againts the brick wall.

Le fait que les chaises soient dépareillées est très sympathique. Elles changent au fil des saisons, comme la déco sur les étagères.


The living-room area is just over by the window where the brick is painted white.

Le salon est un peu plus loin devant une grande fenêtre. Le mur en briques y est cette fois peint en blanc.


Many of you noticed the vintage globe in Mr Gold's shop in my previous post: there's an other one in Snow's sitting area (there's always one, it's just not always the same and they thought no one would notice - but, hey, I'm there).

Beaucoup d'entre vous aviez remarqué le globe dans la boutique de M. Gold présentée dans mon article précédent. Là aussi, il y en a toujours un dans le salon, même si ce n'est pas toujours le même (eh, eh, ils croyaient que personne n'allait le remarquer, mais je suis là!)


I'm in love with the aqua phone she had (you might notice in some other screencaps I made that it changes to a black one in season 2) and did you notice that there's a little Bambi statue on the side table by the sofa?

Je suis amoureuse du téléphone bleu, mais vous avez peut-être remarqué que dans certaines de mes photos, il a été remplacé par un noir. Et vous n'avez pas raté, j'espère, la petite statue de Bambi sur la petite table près du canapé.


I have no idea what's behind those frosty glass doors and it's killing me. Maybe the bathroom? For a while, I thought it was Snow's bedroom, but it's on the other side of the loft.

Je ne sais pas ce qui se cache derrière ces portes au verre granité et cela me rend malade ! Peut-être la salle-de-bains? Pendant un temps, j'ai cru que c'était la chambre, mais en fait elle est de l'autre côté du loft.


On the other side is Snow's bedroom with only white curtains for privacy, which is not a lot of privacy when you think of it. Snow's bedroom is the funniest room for someone as crazy as me, because there's something changing in it in every episode. I just took a few screencaps to show you the bedside table playing musical chairs!

Elle n'est séparée du reste du loft que par des rideaux blancs : joli, mais pas terrible pour l'intimité. Enfin, ce doit être pratique pour les caméras. Cette chambre est la pièce la plus drôle pour moi qui suis complètement folle car elle passe son temps à changer. Je ne vous montre qu'un exemple: les tables de chevet.


Emma could you please not put your boots on the bedspread?

Comment ça, on met ses bottes sur le couvre-lit?


Of course, Snow has the same issues as us: when she moves a bedside table, she also changes the lamps... She also has a couple issues we don't have, like escaping an Evil Queen and eating poisonous apples.

Bien sûr, il arrive à Blanche-Neige ce qui nous arrive à tous : quand elle change ses tables de nuit, elle change aussi les lampes... L'effet boule de neige bien connu en décoration... Elle rencontre aussi quelques problèmes avec des pommes empoisonnées qui, heureusement, ne sont pas les nôtres.


Painted chest and oops! the bedside lamp changed again!

Mais la lampe de chevet a encore changé !


A painted wardrobe and a couple of old frames I'd like to take!

Une armoire peinte et des cadres abandonnés que je voudrais bien voler !

You may have noticed some very industrial looking stairs in some shots. From what I get, they lead to Emma's bedroom, but we don't see it on the show. I wonder if we should create a Twitter #showusemmasbedroom... Because what else can we expect from the second part of season 4?

Vous avez sûrement remarqué cet escalier métallique et au look industriel bien à la mode. Je pense qu'il mène à la chambre d'Emma, mais on ne la voit jamais. Qui veut signer une pétition pour que les décorateurs la créent enfin dans les prochains épisodes?


I think that this set, though interesting, is not perfect for the character's personality, which is very "nice and clean" on the show. Would you live there?

Ce décor, bien qu'intéressant, ne me semble pas vraiment correspondre au personnage un peu ennuyeux qu'est Banche-Neige dans la série. Et vous, aimeriez-vous vivre dans ce loft?

See you soon,

A bientôt,


PS/Update: I've had many questions about some other sets of Once Upon A Time, so I thought you might be interested in my OUAT set Pinterest board here.

PS2: I'm sharing Snow's place with:

  1. I like the weathered wood/brick loft. Wouldn't that be fun! I think I've liked lofts ever since watching Gwyneth Paltrow in A Perfect Murder.

  2. Oh yes, I love this. I could just toss aside my home and move right in. I get these urges for a complete change in my home now that our kids are more or less on their way. :)

  3. I love this whole space, very cosy, Phyllis

    1. It does manage to be cosy even with an open plan, doesn't it?

  4. Oh yes I love it too. I mean there's tweaking to be done but I like the weathered look. I also love the open floor plan without being to overwhelmingly large. One thing I don't like is the staircase and seems out of place. I love the photo with the door open and we're able to look in side. I love that look, so charming, and as you know I love charm!

  5. I love the doors and some of the furniture and I am a big fan of brick walls, but this space is a little too rustic for my liking... I would have loved this when I was in college!

    ReplyDelete
  6. I would love a loft apartment, but instead I have a little yellow cottage. I have never seen this show. Is it only in France?

  7. Such a cool loft! I have always loved that look....especially exposed brick. I have never watched this show, but it sounds good. Have a great week! I was off today for President's Day and am back to work tomorrow. Sprink Break is just a few weeks away though. :)

  8. Mais ça ne va pas du tout !!! Où sont les nains ??? Pas un nain de jardin à l'horizon ? Je ne regarde pas la série, mais il ne me semble pas que le personnage masculin qu'on aperçoit sur les photos soit un nain... Auraient-ils abusé des pommes ?
    Merci pour cet article ! À bientôt, Flopsy

  9. I love that you notice little details like telephones changing from season to season. Thanks for the tour and for making me notice things I never really stopped to look at.

  10. I think this loft is great. I like the brick wall and the wonderful pieces of furniture like the white wardrobe and the table with mismatched chairs. However, I would definitely need less clutter and a more organized space ~ it would drive me crazy the way it is! This was a really fun post, Magali!

  11. Moi je rêve d'une jolie maison ancienne remplie de meubles de famille, de mini placard et d'étagères aux bords dentelés et rondelets partout, d'une cuisine ancienne là aussi mais avec un style shabby et enfin surtout une belle salle de bain dans laquelle trônerait une baignoire aux pattes de lion, arh, tu m'as donné des envies de déco subitement

    ReplyDelete
  12. Tous ces meubles et ces bibelots me font envie... (la lampe "bambie" me rappelle mon cadeau de Noël) mais la surface de ce loft n'a rien à voir avec celle de ma petite maison bretonne. Il faudrait pousser les murs...
    Mais surtout, je me demande comment tu fais pour remarquer tous ces détails !

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yes, I would live there in a heartbeat! So much personality, but I would have to change the sofa, I would need one bigger and softer, so the kitties and dogs and I could curl up together. Wishing you a wonderful week, Magali. We have lots of snow on the ground and more expected. xo Patty

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh yes! I would live there. I we all enjoy looking at the sets of our favorite movies or television series. I can see why you like this set with so many things that would make cottage very happy, and her lady! I'm mad for Downton Abbey now, wardrobe and the house.
    Hugs........

  15. Magali, you sure do have a eye for detail, when I saw Emma's boots on the bed it made me want to tell her to GET THEM OFF! LOL I was disappointed in the place that they carved out for Snow on the show, it needs to be more cottage but now she is married you can tell a guy lives there. Have great day! Jo

    ReplyDelete
  16. You know I would live in this place! But, if I lived here there would be no room for Emma to live upstairs, because it would be crammed with stuff and Emma would have to sleep on that tiny little couch in the living room area. I like the fact that Snow/Mary Margaret lives here, because it makes her character more layered and interesting. If she lived in a place that was too tidy and sterile, she wouldn't be as complex and interesting. After all, she is a girl who lived in the forest and robbed people to get money and trade with trolls, right? She has unexpected aspects to her character.
    PS-you know my favorite set is the one guest room at Grandmas Bed and Breakfast where Emma stayed in episode one, and Emma put her boots on the bedspread in that room too. Naughty Emma.

    ReplyDelete
  17. PPS-What I wonder is where does Mary Margaret keep her clothes? I mean, girl has a lot of clothes, and somehow she keeps them all in that one little wardrobe, including all those great coats? This is the kind of magic I could definitely use!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh yes, I would live there in a heartbeat. I have loved that set from the beginning. I think it fits Snow in that she is creative is used to adaptingfurniture fom her dwarve days. Maybe they should do an episode on how and why she decorated her loft. I lovethe little things they throw in, like the Bambi figurine.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I just pinned a kitchen yesterday that had a great big island looking out onto a larger room. I love the space, and yes I could live there too with a few changes.
    It definitely needs a much bigger and cosier sofa (in my humble opinion) and it's a little bit too shabby, even for me, I would need to paint some things just flat white !
    I feel I'm missing out because I've really never heard of this show..........

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh I feel like watching this series again! AND I just had my hair cut exactly like Snow's! My hair is still that black so I'm enjoying it! Have a super evening, Magali! Anita

  21. It is such a great space, and I love the show. Can't wait for it to start back up March 1st. xo Laura

  22. I've never heard of a vintage-shabby industrial loft until now, but it is an interesting space. You made me laugh out loud with Snow's issues of escaping an evil queen and eating poisonous apples!! I hope someone from the show reads your posts about it - they just may have to hire you to help with set design!

  23. Je pense souvent à quel type de logement j'aimerai maintenant & c'est à coup sûr un loft. Je ne cracherais pas sur celui-ci bien entendu qui est bien sympathique.
    Dans ma petite maison de montagne j'avais décidé de mettre des chaises dépareillées autour de la table, je les avais toutes & puis parmi elles il y avait une paire de Tolix, on y est tellement bien assis que du coup j'ai placé les autres chaises ailleurs & me suis acheté deux autres paires de Tolix dans des couleurs différentes, j'en ai donc 2 oranges, 2 jaunes & 2 bleues autour d'une vieille table en bois & j'adore l'effet que ça fait. J'aime beaucoup les meubles industriels, les meubles design & les meubles anciens & les mixer est un vrai plaisir.
    J'écris, j'écris & je pourrais disserter sur le sujet pendant des heures & des heures.
    Je crois que la déco est mon sujet préféré.
    Bisous & caresses aux chatons d'amour. Babette

  24. I love Snow's loft! Every detail just calls to my heart.....I could live there. I am imagining a sun room behind the glass doors.....:) xo Karen

    1. Oh, a sun room would be great behind those doors! But then where is the bathroom? Maybe fairy tale characters don't need to pee!

  25. You are a hoot! I never would have noticed all those changes, but I'd love to live there as long as they left all the vintage furniture and cupboards in the kitchen. Thanks for sharing, Magali!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh how funny. I would have never noticed the changing lamps or the globe etc. Good eye for detail.
    And yeah I wouldn't mind living there. It's rustic/vintage.

    Thanks for sharing the tour of the set. ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  27. That's the EXACT, creamy white, shabby chic, farmhouse hutch I wanted for my breakfast area! What I ended up with is the apple green credenza, currently featured on my header, which of course, I also love.

    I can see many similarities between Snow's place and yours, especially the sink and stove and some smaller cabinets.

    Have a lovely day, Magali!

  28. Lofts always look so interesting, but when I think about actually living in one I don't see it. I think I just am too much of a cozy cottage person. Large spaces just seem to cold for me.

  29. Hi......I was wondering if you get the Hallmark channel...I think you'd like this Hallmark movie called..All of my heart..great house.! in this one...besides the fact that they're always a great..love hate let's get married story..

  30. the shabby industrial loft is fantastic...and in another life, I'd live there :) (I've too many darling animals to be comfortable there right now)...the chippy painted furniture is perfection...thank you bunches for inspiring me w/ this space (I don't watch the show so I'd never seen it!) And thank you for linking xo

  31. Coucou Magali,
    Je ne sais pas ce que j'ai fait hier en ajoutant un commentaire mais je n'ai pas du le confirmer... et donc il n’apparaît pas ton blog, quelle tête vide je suis ;-)
    Je disais donc que j'adore la première photo, ce parquet blanchi et cette belle couleur Céladon que j'aime tant, reposante, relaxante, c'est un bonheur dans la maison.
    Je te demandais aussi si ça ne te dérangeait pas que j'ajoute quelques uns de tes choix sur mon pinterest, tu es une mine d'idées et de déco et j'avoue que ton cottage me plait beaucoup, je t'avais déjà dit que j'adorais la Bretagne, je ne sais plus, mais si non alors je confirme, j'adore la Bretagne.
    Tu as des goûts précis et surs et des idées intéressantes, je suis fan...
    Merci pour cette belle ballade dans ton monde
    Bon dimanche

    1. Mais bien sûr, vole tout ce que tu veux sur Pinterest, c'est fait pour ça! Attention, il y a beaucoup, beaucoup de photos, j'y stocke toute mon inspiration après avoir perdu toutes mes images lors du crash de deux ordinateurs l'an dernier! C'est une mine d'idées ce site!
      Au fait, j'ai un dossier "Bretagne" sur Pinterest!
      Merci d'être venue te promener du côté de Cottage ce week-end!
