About Me

Hello dear and welcome! Ivy-Green is a lifestyle blog about old houses, country life, different living and more.

I’m Valeria and I studied history and economics in Frankfurt, Berlin and Stockholm. Grew up between russian and german culture. Now I ended up together with my husband in the countryside of Sweden.

Since an unknown point in time, I felt a tendency to nostalgia. Not to mention my faible for vintage clothing, old houses, traditions and of course Christmas! With this in mind I try to take the nice old parts and combine them with some new.

Starting in 2021, the blog Ivy-Green was founded by me to try out and discover an alternative way of sharing ideas and thoughts.

About our life

The blog offers an insight into our current major project. Together with my wonderful husband Felix we restore an old wooden house from the swedish Nyrenässans (New Renaissance). Since 2020 we live and renovate the house here in Sweden. Here you will find everything regarding this topic.

Due to that we both try to strike a balance between living in the country and the city. Between Germany and Sweden. Also to be found between the office and home office. Therefore you will get an insight about your lifestyle, our changing goals and wishes and who knows what else will come!

I hope to inspire and motivate you!

If you have any questions, feedback or suggestions you can write me an email or simply fill out the contact form.

I would love to hear from you.
