“Whitewashing is a sort of tradition in our family,” says Karine. “My father swears by it, and he’s developed his own recipe to get the right feel to the mix, which includes water, milk and limestone powder. For me, white is to interior design what the little black dress is to fashion. It’s simple, practical and chic, yet relaxing.”

Using her superb stylist’s eye to great effect, Karine has teamed beautiful designer items that are on offer at Bodie and Fou with inexpensive but well-designed buys from the likes of Ikea. She has also scoured flea markets and junk shops to add to the eclectic mélange so there’s an antique gold chandelier here, a luxurious armoire there, a vintage Tulip chair by Eero Saarinen (a present from her mother), as well as a Thirties christening robe picked up for next to nothing at a car boot fair.

A nice place to get away from the city and spend a little time with your family and make sure it functions smoothly. While on the topic though am just an accounting homework help services writer I think no show did more damage to American expectations of mix-match families than the Brady Bunch. No one I know, including my dad and my husband, who has step parents and step siblings thinks they are actual parents or siblings. Just people they happen to have to live with half time.
