Behind The Scenes

Susan Metropoulos is the fearless leader, Jill of all trades, master juggler who dreamt up the concept for The Left Bank 21 years ago.  Always a dreamer and lover of all things with a vintage romantic french twist.

Seven Things Susan Couldn't Live Without...
1.  A Good Book - I must have one going at all times, it's a great escape.  I've stopped saving them and pass them onto friends. Still old fashioned and like paper, no e-readers for moi!
2.  Dragonflies - Their delicate lace like wings are mesmerizing and mystical lore have been my personal icon for years.
3.  Pugs - The sweetest creatures in the world, but I'm completely partial with two senior pugs, Phoebe & Penelope.
4.  Champagne - No special occasion necessary...pourqoi pas?
5.  Paris - Like walking into a postcard and where everyday things are elevated to an art form.
6.  Esterlina Vineyards - Heaven on earth in beautiful Mendocino, California.  Their Pinot Noir is nectar from the Gods.
7.  Valentino - Fashion God.  Period.  (And he has 5 Pugs too!)
