you guys, i LOVE a good before and after. you might say i am OBSESSED with them. you can ask my husband how many hours i have spent watching shows like Fixer Upper and Masters of Flip or how i get totally lost scrolling through the Apartment Therapy B&A archives. if we had HGTV in South Africa i would be permanently tuned in. my Instagram explore page is basically just filled with stylists, interior decorators and house flippers. i’m also hoping to share our own house before & after here – soon!
so i was really happy when i found the work of Holly Marder, an interior design stylist & journalist who blogs about her work at Avenue Lifestyle. she has such a light, soft sensibility and sense of style – i love her work! AND, judging by her accent, Holly has South African roots. check out some of her projects below – including before and afters – and delve into her blog here.
