Being featured in As You Like magazine

In As You Like Magazine

I hope you’re having a nice weekend so far. Mine started nicely with a power walk listening to Louise Hay (has any of you started listening to her!? If you have, please let me know what you think) and then I took Mila to the gym so she could practice for her competition in a couple of weeks. When we came back home, there was a copy of As You Like magazine with 6 pages dedicated to our home in London and a profile about me. I’m so excited! I know I had press coverage in the past but that kind of things never gets old, believe me! As You Like magazine is a women’s magazine dedicated to the new e-generation and regularly draws profiles of Digital Influencers, Bloggers, Vloggers etc….I mean, how far have we all come as a profession to have a magazine just dedicated to all the inspiring people we find online, it’s incredible and it gives me so much hope for the next generation of women, our girls, to create something …

BODIE and FOU Interview in the Lifestyle Editor

My interview in The Lifestyle Editor

I had the chance to be interviewed by Stephanie Bateman Sweet,  renowned Stylist and Author for THE LIFESTYLE EDITOR I HEART WORK  Who are you: Karine Candice Köng What is your work: Founder and Creative Director (with my sister, Elodie) of award-winning online concept store BODIE and FOU and professional blogger. What is your website: Describe your work in 5 words? Inspiring, challenging, rewarding, fun and busy. What is the first thing you do when you get to work? Chat with my team, check my emails and drink water.

It just sets the tone for a healthy day, “Mens sana in corpore sano.” Why do you love what you do? I love the freedom and creativity it gives me, discovering new designers, meeting inspiring, creative people and share their work with customers who love what we find.

My interview in Baby & Me Exclusive magazine

I’m very excited (non non jury service doesn’t rock my boat) but I was interviewed recently by the fabulous BABY & ME Exclusive magazine and the interview is out now. I love that they used this photo of the Pigmee doll, Mila is holding against her washed linen apron….two of my favourite items this season! And Elodie and I really need to have new photos of us together taken! The B&W one the magazine used is from the Grand Designs magazine photoshoot in 2008. And it seems that it is the week for all the interviews I answered recently to all come out at the same time so you will also find an interview on The Good Web Guide.

Columbia Road Flower market

Last month, I mentioned a photoshoot in Columbia Road Flower market for a feature Time Out was doing on creative people shopping at London’s best street markets. The article came out yesterday so I picked up a copy on my way to a business meeting and ending up smiling like an idiot in the train stopping myself from saying to complete strangers in the tube “Look! c’est moi la… on the page!”… A big thank you to the lovely Maggie, Shopping & Style Editor at Time Out who is also behind Chic Little Baby. Here is the article and below a few photos I took at Campania. Yours, Karine, Design Expert (so they say :-) ★★★★ For botanists Columbia Road Flower Market Our market insider: Karine Candice Kong, design expert (I swear I didn’t tell them to put this but I LIKE it!)When should you visit Columbia Road Flower Market? “The Market starts at 8am every Sunday and it’s best to get there as early as possible.

Our French house in Junior magazine…

Excitement is running high this morning in the B&F office! We’ve just received the June issue of Junior magazine and here it was… three pages on our house in France with lovely pictures of Mila Sienna and Lily. A big thank you to everybody at Junior magazine, the wonderful Ruth Corbett for writing just a lovely article about us and being so generous and Alun Callender for his beautiful pictures. As it happens, we just came back from our annual get-together in the house which this year was very special because we are now all living around Europe: Elodie & Christophe are in Barcelona, Alexia & Nicolas in Bruxelles, Val & Chris in Paris and us in London so it was really cool to spend a few days together. This time, there was 22 of us, 3 children, 2 babies and a dog. I thought I would impress everyone with my vodka jelly, a recipe I got from my friend Verity in New-Zealand but Christophe beat me to it with his mojitos but once again …

Great review in EASY LIVING

We have a great review in Easy Living this month… ‘It’s three years since French sisters Karine and Elodie set up online boutique BODIE and FOU. An Easy Living favourite, its cyber shelves are filled with the most covetable items, from pretty framed prints to elegant practical items, such as this silver ceramic vase.’ Sadly the silver vase is now sold out but the Aqua vase is still available and of course the striking Grass vases (below) by Normann Copenhagen which are still flying off the shelves…
