Calling a castle 'home' has got to be the dream, right? And designer Heidi Middleton, one half of the duo that founded sass & bide in 1999 has just made it a reality, pocketing the keys to a sprawling, towering chateau in Medoc in the Bordeaux region in the south west of France.
"You called our name... and we came," Middleton wrote in her Instagram post celebrating her new home. The designer currently lives in Paris with her family, having relocated to France in 2015.
The family's new home is situated in Medoc, the wine-making town in the south west of France slowly making a name for itself as one of the trendiest villages in the country. That's mostly thanks to Medoc's most famous resident: the food blogger and life goals incarnate: Mimi Thorisson. It should come as no surprise that Thorisson and Middleton are friends, with both sharing Instagram snaps from a lunch the two families shared four months ago. Middleton captioned one "dreaming with a fellow dreamer". And now, neighbour!
