Houzz Home Tour by Holly Marder

Hello! My name is Holly. I am a Netherlands-based Australian writer and stylist, with a lifestyle blog called Avenue. I will be guest blogging over here at Emerald Green Interiors for Corinne while she spends some quality time with her brand new baby boy, Philipp. For my first post, I thought it might be a good idea to begin with how we met. Not long ago, I contacted Corinne, having seen snippets of her home on the blog, to see whether she might be interested in featuring it on Houzz, a US based interior design platform that I write a regular column for. She agreed to my proposition straight away, so I ventured over to Brussels to shoot her gorgeous home a week later. Her feature just published this weekend, so I thought this was a good opportunity to show you some of the snaps I took during our photo shoot as a way of introducing myself. You can read Corinne’s entire story {here}.

I chose to highlight the upstairs area of Corinne’s home because this was my favourite area of her split level home for a couple reasons. The moment I stepped into the light filled space, I was in awe of how Corinne has cleverly combined several design styles in one contemporary space, including Art Deco pieces, antiques and modern elements. What impressed me the most was the way the space all tied together through Corinne’s use of colour. Where one piece might be completely different from the next, the entire space is a peaceful, unified whole through a colour palette of reds and purples. The starting point for the room’s colour scheme was the striped upholstery seen on the two little bistro chairs by the window.

I had such a great time shooting this space and have found so much inspiration in the way that Corinne has put her home together.

I hope that you have enjoyed browsing this collection of images. If you’re keen to see more, head over to Houzz and read the feature article and see more images.

I will be back soon with more interior design inspiration. In the meantime, I look forward to reading your comments on Corinne’s home!

  • I am so excited to see this finally up! The herringbone wood floors are to die for and I absolutely love how Corinne uses bold colors with an understated elegance. The mix of eras, patterns and color are simply perfection!ReplyCancel

  • Hi Holly and Corrine. Wow what a beautiful home Corrine and lovely shots Holly. I agree with Yana, such stunning herringbone floors. The one word I would use to describe Corrine’s space is “elegance”. Mel P.S. Congrats again for your little man xReplyCancel

    • Thank you Mel. Although I can’t claim the floors as my own work, I do admit that they were definitely a beautiful added bonus to choosing this flat 🙂ReplyCancel

  • @ Mel Thank you!ReplyCancel

  • Hi Holly, these images are just lovely! I love how Corrine’s home has subtle pops of plum and those floors are absolutely stunning. Definitely Houzz worthy!!ReplyCancel

    • Thank you Sarah! I can’t claim the wood floors are being my work so I’ll stick with the plum accents 🙂 It was a lot of fun to have Holly over. How are you doing? Getting ready for D-day?ReplyCancel

  • Natural light is always such a wonderful inspiration and this space looks like the light is in abundance. Lovely pieces that look like cherished family heirlooms. amazingly beautiful floors. since I’m a color consultant I would probably painted the dining room set and put a color on the walls. everybody’s a critic…ReplyCancel

    • Thank you Lynne! Being a color consultant myself you can certainly understand my frustration at not being able to paint since we have a very picky landlord and don’t know how much longer we will be staying. It was actually quite a challenge to do without as this is what I usually do first!ReplyCancel
