Flowers, flowers, everywhere…

Our Two-in-one Border Dress is the must-have dress of the season. With a shirred waist to flatter every figure, the blue shadow print is a paisley border design in oceanic tones. The dress comes with an additional slip, which can be worn under the dress or separately as its own piece, which means you get two summer dresses for the price of one.

Welcome to the Chateau de la Carriere

This exquisite French chateau is the setting for our colourful Jardin du Palais Royal collection. Just a hop, skip, and a jump from Paris in the Loire Valley, the chateau covers 27 acres of park and woodlands, with over 35 rooms plus guest rooms for those wishing to explore this fairytale property.

The love project of Australian owner Suzie Jackson, she has been bringing this wildly beautiful French home to life since 2014. Over several years Suzie began slowly decorating the chateau with a combination of antiques, weekend market buys, stuffed animals, murals, and flowers, creating a theme for each room unique to her style. (Our pick is the Ladies Salon, featuring the stunning porter chair in regal tones of pink and gold.)

The luscious grounds are full of greenery and fruit and vegetable gardens that Suzie planted, using them for delicious meals to assist her love of cooking. The chateau also hosts events and weddings, perfect for dancing the night away under the stars.

Alongside the formal French structure, Suzie has integrated her personal taste in fabrics, textures and kooky items that resemble her, blending this with the magic of unknown items that guests are instantly drawn to. The result? A magical, wondrous place that nobody wants to leave.

Watch our video and take a walk with Suzie as she shows us her beautiful French home.
