A Dutch home gets a green make-over

Do you have any New Year interior resolutions? It could be as simple as de-cluttering or as crazy as shelling out your entire house and starting again from the ground up (like my sister!). Personally, I'm keeping it simple, and have a goal to add a little more colour to my home (baby steps friends, baby steps!). Which is why this lovely space caught my eye. If you follow Holland-based Marian on Instagram you'll know several things about her space a) it's in a constant state of change b) she loves plants and flowers and c) she's a big fan of green! And it's the latter that caught my eye - looking back through her feed there has always been a hint of green in her home but recently Marian took things to a whole new level of greenness with half-painted walls. Here's the before and after...

Before - white walls:


Print from Muurmeeters, Line cushion by Normann Copenhagen.

This vintage French school chair is similar (check the height first!). The wall hanging is from Knotting on the Wall.

The Artek pendant lamp is similar, round mirror, vintage school chair, black and white Twiggy print

After: green walls

Print from Muurmeesters and Line cushion by Normann Copenhagen (as before).

Such a lovely update, don't you think? I really like the tone (I'm on the case with the shade and will come back as soon as possible!).

Could you imagine painting one of your walls half green (or another colour)? If so, keep an eye out for my guide on how to achieve a half painted wall later today!

Have a great start to the week!

  1. I don’t think she is doing her house any favors by applying this color in this way. I would prefer one (or two) whole walls. The color goes nicely with the things she has. If the space is not too low in height she could paint her ceiling this color (I have a thing for colored ceilings). Love the flowers.

    1. I hadn't thought about it - but yes, it does have such a peaceful feeling - could it be the green / plants etc and the connection to nature? Loving the piano too!

  4. Beautiful house, but not a fan of half painted walls. Looks very institutional.

    1. It's such a beautiful house! Interesting re the half painted walls, they're not everyone's bag! I do have a bit of a soft spot for them though. :)

  5. I looooved the first pictures, then went 'wow' out loud when I reached the after ones! The dark green adds a whole lot of depth and interest. A brave move, but a beautiful one.

  8. I love the before pictures and love green! The half painted walls are a bold choice, not my style but striking. I feel that all the lovely decorative items would show up better if they were paler in color. Even the plants are lost against that strong green. Pale cream, pastels, Palest metalics would show up better.
