I wish I lived here: a calm bedroom in the Netherlands

This bedroom just looks so relaxing. It belongs to Netherlands-based interior stylist and journalist Holly Marder, who has a fab blog called Avenue Lifestyle (check it out here). When you see the before images you will realise just how successful this bedroom makeover has been. Before it was dark and decorated in a garish purple and orange, but Holly has transformed it into a calm retreat by painting the floorboards and walls white. She’s added linen bed covers by Couleur Locale and a gallery wall of different sized prints. An open wardrobe space has been created at the opposite end of the bed, but I doubt mine could stay that tidy for long!
