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.
Carolina Blue: articles
The shop carries a range of pieces of vintage furniture, refurbished by Carolina herself. She sources many of her pieces in the south of France, adding a personal touch to give them a new lease of life.

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