In 2006, Karine bought website, an online gift shop bursting with fun products, such as the Nigella Lawson kitchenware range, and the Armadillo bread bin. “It turned out to be the best business decision I’ve ever made,” says Karine. “The website already had a strong reputation, and it made sense to acquire a site that complements the products that we sell at Bodie and Fou.”

Rumour has it that a childrenswear label is the next item on Karine and Elodie’s busy agenda, but for now, the family are focusing on enjoying time together at their French idyll. “After ten years living in England, and with Steve’s family on the other side of the world, it was very important for us to create a family home for Mila Sienna and for Elodie’s daughter Lily, so they could grow up with the same wonderful childhood memories that we’ve had.”
