Design Hotel Week: Anemi, Folegandros, Greece

Ready for another vacation? This time in Greece, on the island of Folegandros. The hotel is called Anemi, and I don't know what that means in Greek, but in Swedish it means shortage of blood; anemia. And even though the interiors here are very pale and a bit cold, I'm not sure that was what the owners thought of when they named it?
Other than that, I like that they used the traditional greek colours blue and white, but in a modern way.

    Good morning from Greece!

    Anemi "ανέμη in Greek" means also SPINNING WHEEL (they used it for wrapping yarn in previous years).

    I have not visit Folegandros but this a good cause to do so!

    hello emma. Anemi means a kinda of smooth wind in greek. (yeap i'm greek). And folegandros is one of my fav islands of my country. It's probably named that way cause this hotel is situated in a rather 'windy' corner. it makes sense to me..

    you should come and visit our beautiful places sometime ;)
