Name: Mery and Mili, sisters and owners of Hinojo
Location: Valencia, Spain
Size: 220 square meters (2368 square feet)
Years lived in: 5 years
Mery and Mili are two sisters who love food and spend time together cooking healthy and creative meals. They are owners of Hinojo, a food blog they started a few years ago. They share a lot of recipes you can enjoy with family and friends (or just make and enjoy yourself.) They are from Argentina but came to Valencia looking for a change. Searching for a nice place, they found this amazing apartment that was exactly what they we’re looking for. It was definitely love at first sight.
The eclectic style, the colors and the bright light; it’s the definition of a cool and modern home for two young sisters who love to spend time together and discover new things. But this is not only a home for two. They share the space with Jorge, Mery’s husband (an incredible illustrator and the owner of Lawerta) and their little son, Pascual.
It’s a really dynamic house surrounded with amazing, colorful and bright elements. They are lovely, creative and vibrant people and you can feel it the second you open the door.
Apartment Therapy Survey:
Our Style: Mixing
Inspiration: We just love to see cool places, stores, etc. and create something special mixing it all.
Favorite Element: The dog lamp, a donation from a friend who went to live in another country.
Biggest Challenge: Furnish the house with a low budget and find special pieces.
What Friends Say: Some are surprised by the origin of the pieces. And others say that I have to work as an Interior Designer.
Biggest Embarrassment: “The room of horrors” A storage room filled with all the things that don't have a place, almost like the one Monica has in the TV show Friends.
Proudest DIY: Two bedside tables that I bought on Ikea and I have customized entirely.
Best Advice: It’s better having just a few unique things than to have a lot things with no sense.
Dream Sources: Love to have a Sputnik lamp.
