“Only In Barcelona” by Francesca McConnell

 

“Only In Barcelona” by Francesca McConnell
By Erin Rose Belair

“It was in Barcelona that I felt most in love with myself. And that is to say, I loved who I was in the years I was living there. I loved how I saw myself in that city. There is bite to the romance, a cadence to the language, a languid kind of way you could pass an afternoon having a smoke in a plaza. It was during those years I more than any other time in my life, never worried about who I was going to be, I just was.”  – On Living in Barcelona, Erin Rose Belair

This colorfully inventive editorial of Ukrainian model Anastasiia Koshelieva was shot on film in Barcelona. Traveling analog photographer Francesca McConnell uses the space of the city as a second model in these shots. Paired with the glittering sequins, the yellow tinted glasses, the look on her face, there is something disarming and very seductive in these images.

My stay at the beautiful Hotel Henriette, Paris

 

My stay at the beautiful Hotel Henriette, Paris
By noreply@blogger.com (My Scandinavian Home)

Hello! I hope you had a wonderful weekend? I’m still reeling from a magical weekend in Paris where HarperCollins France organised a tour to celebrate the launch of my Lagom book in French. My days included an inspiring meet-up with bloggers and journalists at La Trésorerie, a book signing at Galeries Lafayette and a soirée at Nordik Market  – I have to say, it all feels like a dream now! The weekend was made to feel even more special by Hotel Henriette – a small boutique hotel with a chic pied-à-terre feel tucked away in a quiet cobbled street in the 13th arrondissement. Designed by former fashion editor Vanessa Scoffier, the entire space is decorated with second hand pieces, mid-century finds, and fabulous art deco light fittings set against a back drop of deep, rich hues, soft greys and pretty florals (oh la la!). It’s somewhere I’ve been wanting to stay ever since this post – and I have to say it was even lovelier in real life! Of course, I had to snap every detail so that I could take ideas home with me, and share the space with you! Here’s a sneak peek…

Copyright / photography: Niki Brantmark – My Scandinavian Home.  

Isn’t it just the most beautiful place?

Vanessa spent over 15 months trawling Paris flea markets to find pieces for each room and the communal areas. The good news is, that this means if you look hard enough, you could achieve the same look in your own home on a budget – hurrah! Here’s a quick guide:

Bedroom Gubi Grasshopper Pendant in grey,  source pretty handmade floral pillow cases here, this is a great place to pick up vintage school chairs and antique mirrors. This gold flower wall sconce is similar. Conservatory: source a similar seagrass basket here, vintage tripod table. Sitting room / reception: mid-century credenza, Togo ottoman in yellow alcantara by Ligne Roset, pick up a set of vintage cranes here.

You can see more of the rooms (all of which have been decorated in their own unique way) here.  

Thank you so much to HarperCollins France for believing in my book and organising the trip (what a fantastic, genuine, kind group of people you are!), La Trésorerie, Nordik Market and Galeries Lafayette for being so accommodating, to all the wonderful people I met over my time there, of whom, sadly, there are too many to mention by name, and Hotel Henriette for a memorable stay!

Have a great start to the week!

N.B. This is not a sponsored post – I just wanted to share this little gem of a hotel with you in case you’re ever in Paris!
