The co-creators of the site The Repère des Belettes, Karine Peyresaubes and Fanny Roux, invite us to discover the Karine mansion located west of Paris in Saint-Germain-en-Laye. They open the doors of this family home combining contemporary creations and vintage furniture.

Karine, co-creator of the site Le Repère des Belettes and ex-communicator in politics, has taken a new course. After a few years in Canada, she ends up having homesickness. She then naturally decides to find Saint-Germain-en-Laye, her home port, the city that saw her grow, and puts his suitcases in this mansion dating from 1780. It needed imagination and talent to transform, over the years, the space divided into several apartments. Today, this family home, completely restructured on two levels and easygoing, has become its haven of peace. She stirs up at Karine the pleasure of staging. At the mercy of her moods, she assembles designer objects, inherited pieces, such as her grandfather's bust, and antique furniture full of history. A happy mix that sets the tone: the harmony of styles, the association of objects, an art that she masters and wants to share.

Accompanied by her acolyte Fanny Roux, three years ago, they imagine a website of beautiful brands, a real landmark for lovers of decoration. In one click, they select the playful creations of Rose in April, the luminous sculptures of Zoe Rumeau, the "message" bags Be-Poles, the singular objects of House Doctor and the vintage pieces they look for in the Netherlands. in Belgium. They do not trust the trends, but choose according to their favorites, their meetings. They like to put on their site simple everyday items, natural materials such as linen, wood or metal. In just a few years, they have been able to encircle an authentic and sensitive world that recalls what is essential: the landmark.
