Any excuse to get out of the house and spend some time wandering around, seeing, watching, smelling the freshly planted yards and idly sinking in the air.
I had a very good excuse to go aout and about this weekend.
Otherwise known as
Open house Athens
is a non-profit worth knowing about, especially if you are in the housing/real estate/interiors/architecture domain.
I visited first the Angeliki Hatzimichali (1895-1965) residence, a dear place from my years at The Lyceum Club of Greek Women (Lykeion ton Hellenidon) and all my interest and work for Folk Tradition, the Dora Stratou foundation and UNESCO. Here is the description:
A three-storey residential building built in 1924 to plans by A. . Zachos . Today it houses the Centre of Folk Art and Tradition
(You may have a look at the other locations here.)
Here are some of the pictures I took for you.
Outside and internal garden
The living room

Do visit, when you come to Athens, for a taste of a mix between Folk and Bourgeois.
