for its authentic charm

The Raval quarter is packed with litte independent shops. Carolina Blue stands out from the crowd, offering a range of original and charming decorative objects. Opened in 2013, it’s already a point of reference on the Barcelona interiors scene.

Carolina Blue: a passion for interiors

As you might suspect, Carolina Blue was created by a young woman by the name of Carolina. Following the birth of her first child, this former merchandiser decided to fulfil her dream of opening her own shop, and the dream became reality in April 2013.

Carolina has always been passionate about restoring vintage furniture, and has created a retro-modern feel in the shop through the use of old wooden furniture, little glass pieces and pretty fabrics.

Hip, trendy interior accessories

Carolina Blue is a distributor for a number of very “in” brands, such as the Danish Bloomingville and House Doctor. It’ a great place to find pretty candle holders, vases, lamps, mirrors and other small decorative objects.

Price-wise, tableware costs between €5 and €30, with vases and large dishes from €8 to €35.

Plants

One of the first things you’ll notice at Carolina Blue is the number of plants all around the entrance. They’re all for sale, as are the pots.
