2. Who is behind L’Essenziale?
My name is Anna Kovalchenko.
I am originally from Moscow, Russia but I consider myself to be an “international” person: my mindset is not limited by national boundaries and I like to explore different countries and their cultures. After my graduation I didn’t want to settle down in Moscow as I had a huge desire to “see the world”. That’s when I moved first to the Maldives and then on to the Seychelles. At that point in time I felt like Marco Polo discovering exotic and unusual destinations. These were wonderful moments in my life and a fantastic experience. After living almost five years on the islands I decided to return to the “Big Land” and I ventured back to Moscow.
I must say that my path towards becoming an interior designer has been very meandering. Having been busy for many years in the hospitality industry and in the sales and marketing field I was far away from realizing my long standing dream. Finally here in Baku, Azerbaijan, fate gave me the chance and I grabbed it. I enrolled in KLC School in London to study a Diploma in Interior Design. Six months later I launched my interior design blog – L’ESSENZIALE. I don’t regret that it took me so long as I felt that my experience in sales and marketing continues to assist me with my blog, and the rich and vibrant nature of the tropical islands which I observed for such a long time has assisted me in finding reflection in my interior design work.
In 2012 I launched my online BOUTIQUE selling hand picked artisanal objects found in various countries I travelled to.
Since November 2014 I am a regular contributor to Architectural Digest Russia:
And since January 2015 L’Essenziale has partnered with Square Design Interiors to execute interior design projects in Greece and Russia.
