She works on the borderline between design, art, installations and styling. From 1997 to 2000 she was in Paola Navone’s studio as a trend setter, product image concept and exhibition designer. Since 2001 she has worked as a journalist and stylist in the interiors magazines Grazia Casa and Interni.
Valeria Vaselli (La Spezia,1959) after classical studies graduated in visual design at the Scuola Politecnica of Design in Milan in 1981. She worked as a journalist and graphic designer at Elle Decor and Grazia magazine, then as graphic editor-in-chief at Grazia Casa and Donna Moderna. Ink drawing is a passion cultivated since she was very young when she lived in La Spezia. They work together as an artistic duo under the penname Bloom&me by merging the digitally processed photos of Carolina with Valeria’s ink drawings.
