Hi, I’m Marine Conrad, the woman behind ‘The French Boutique’ and ‘Chez Marine Interior’.
I was born in La Rochelle, closed to the beautiful Bordeaux Region in France.
After graduating from College, I studied at ICART, one of France's leading school in Art Management, which is entirely dedicated to the pursuit of Art Careers.
I then spent 10 years working in the Art, Media and Design Industry in Paris including 5 years as an Interior Stylist for a popular French TV show "D&CO".
Following this experience, I decided to travel and establish my business in Nelson, New Zealand.
I love sourcing quality products from unique designers and repurposing older pieces.
The French 'Je ne sais quoi' loosely translated to ‘that little something’ is a great definition of my style.
“Basically that sense of style that you can’t explain about the French women. Classy, simple and never over the top.”
Interior design is my passion, and my purpose is to bring a little piece of that 'French Art of Living' into your home
If you're looking for some elegant and timeless interior design for your home or boutique, I look forward to hearing from you.
