Two opposits that look alike

She's from the Îles de la Madeleine. The winds, the sea, and the horizon stretching out of sight. The beaches, the trails, and the secret spots where to pick wildflowers and sweet berries. It's her home, where she grew up - she knows it all and she knows it well.

He's from the mainland. The forest is where he feels the closest to nature. He enjoys the calm and peaceful shelter brought by the foliage. That's his home, his element, where he belongs.

Reunited here on the Islands, they form an incredible duo. Their contrasting personalities still manage to complete one another. Together, they've created a life for themselves, in their image. A life that grows to the rhythm of family and creation.

In Melodie's workshop, the stones she carefully plucked from the surrounding beaches mingle with precious metals and tools of the trade. Everything is well-organized, arranged on long tables basking in sunlight. It's in this bright haven that she carves, polishes and works these elements to create sleek and unique jewelry with techniques of her own, invariably drawing inspiration from her environment.

Downstairs, in Francis' workshop, driftwood and eclectic logs are stacked to form an enchanting canopy. In the heart of this forest, finished pieces sit next to the raw materials waiting to become lamps, mirrors, kitchen utensils or fantastic puzzles.

To each their own - their own workshop, their own universe, their own creations - but with a common guiding principle in mind: the choice to use first and foremost what the nature of the Islands has to offer.

Eager to do their part toward the preservation of the environment, they've now mastered the subtle art of upcycling. They approach this challenge with delight and take pleasure in giving a second life to driftwood and beach pebbles, creating unexpected furniture and everyday items in the process.

Everything they make gets integrated into the boutique or the apartments they convert and furnish. The walls also receive a special treat with paintings signed by Marco, Mélodie's father, which bring the rooms together with colour. Everything is unique, inspired, surprising, and bursting with creativity. You can feel the Islands in their purest form.

Jaspe Rouge is a pocket universe where imagination takes the lead to give everyone the power to make things change.
