Her love of nature and Iberic horses drew her to the heart of Les Alpilles at the doors of La Camargue. From there she founded her design showroom in 2014, along with her very own workshops, where she designs and creates custom-made fabrics and furnishings for a select clientèle.
Luxurious fabrics are at the heart of Bérengère Leroy’s creations, delicately pairing high quality stonewashed linens with plush velvets, burlap and cotton chenille. An icon of bohemian chic, her magnificent range of designs, colors and textures illustrate the spirit of La Haute Couture.

See How to Style An Autumn Attitude With Sud Express
This week we’re crushing on is this ingenious combination by French retailer, Sud Express. What could be sexier than pairing a silky floral print dress with a cozy woolen sweater of the same color. This vibrant combination is casual enough for day when paired with the sweater and a pair of chunky boots. But also sexy enough for night when you take off the sweater and add a pair of high heeled shoes.
Showing herein the latest collection of Sud Express: Rampage dress – a sexy tunic style dress with a v-shaped collar and belted waist in saffran. The My Love sweater, also in saffran, is a blended mix of mohair, wool and polyester and adds a touch of texture and warmth to a cool autumn day.
Bite the Ear Off the Beautiful Aurore Pâté with Maison Vérot
In our foodie fantasy of the week, we invite you to bite the ear off the beautiful Aurore pâté at Maison Vérot. For a limited time only, Maison Vérot offers up a taste of L’Oreiller de la Belle Aurore. Made with love for Aurore Récamier, the grand dame of Brillat-Savarin, this magnificent country paté is prepared with only the finest meats, mushrooms and foie gras and is wrapped in a beautiful brown crust.
The famous Oreiller de la Belle Aurore is a seasonal favorite in France and a complete obsession in Paris. Charcutier artisanal since 1930, Maison Vérot created the buzz in Paris and New York in the late 70’s with their promotion of their premium products. This foodie fantasy sells out quickly so don’t hesitate or it will be too late.
Nestled among the numerous shops on a tiny street in Saint Germain, Taschen tells an artistic tale. Founded in 1980 in Cologne, by Benedikt Taschen, this controversial editor keeps boldly pushing the envelope with beautiful books on a wide range of subjects.
From art and design to cinema and pop-culture, from travel and cooking to fashion and photography, there is something for everyone at Taschen. Our personal pick, a copy of Salvador Dali’s sensational cookbook, « Les Diners de Gala », a surrealist experience blending art, culture and most of all, food. Simply divine.
