AT HOME WITH A BLOGGER ⎬FACING NORTH WITH GRACIA


Bienvenue chez Elena, l'italienne la plus scandinave que je connaisse. Un mélange étonnant d'Europe du nord et de nord d'Italie qui fonctionne à merveille. Du blanc, des touches de noir et de vert chlorophylle!

Welcome at Elena's, the most Scandinavian girl born under the Italian sky. A stunning combination of Northern Europe and Northern Italy that wonderfully works. White, black details and green chlorophyll!


J'ai eu la chance de passer mon week-end à Barcelona chez elle. Et croyez-moi son appartement est aussi blanc que vous le voyez dans ces images. Un véritable havre de paix dans l'agitation du quartier de Vila de Gracia, certainement l'un de mes préférés

I had the chance to spend the week-end in Barcelona at her place. And believe me, it is as white as you can see it on these pictures. Her apartment is a true haven of peace, in one of the most vibrant area in town, Vila de Gracia. 


J'adore cette enveloppe blanche qui vous entoure, la touche de verdure qui ajoute une tonalité vivante à cet ensemble monochrome et les détails tous absolument design, des véritables icônes du design italien et scandinave. Les objets bougent constamment à l'intérieur de cet appartement, mais tous retrouvent leur équilibre, même ailleurs et sans difficulté. Un équilibre facile à trouver aussi quand on est invité, on est accueilli avec un adorable sourire, on se sent à la maison, chez soi, "a casa" ♡

I love this white envelope that surrounds you, the green touch which add a vibrant note to this monochrome place and the details all utterly design, authentic Italian and Scandinavian design icons. Objects move around all the time here, but all of them easily find the perfect balance, even elsewhere. The perfect balance easy to find even when you are a guest, you are welcomed by the loveliest smile, you feel at home, "a casa"

    1. Encore une fois je confirme que le "tout-blanc" n'est pas synonyme de froideur! C'est un espace chaleureux et si bien décoré qu'on se croirait dans un magazine dans lequel on peut même déplacer les objets ;-) xx

    2. Igor, now that I know Elena a little bit more I understand much better her style which is so unusual for somebody born and raised up in Italy. But somebody who tells you she misses the Edinburgh grey sky cannot be 100% Italian, can she? ;-) lots of love to both of you … I would love to see you again next week-end!!! xx
