About

Hi there!

My name is Holly Marder, the founding author of Avenue Lifestyle, interior design journalist and stylist focusing on interiors and editorial productions. I have degrees in communication, journalism and fashion design. My love of interiors began as a girl watching my mother, who was a decorator, design and redesign our own homes, but this passion only resurfaced when I started writing about interiors as a profession. On a day-to-day basis I can be found styling and photographing beautiful interiors, working with private clients to style their own homes, coordinating inspirational editorial features and collaborating with talented creatives and inspirational brands. Avenue Lifestyle is run and operated from my studio based in Delft, The Netherlands.

INTERIOR STYLING & PHOTOGRAPHY //

My interior productions feature both online and in print. I am a columnist for Decor8, one of the world’s leading lifestyle blogs read by 1.8 million readers monthly, where I style, shoot and share inspiring interiors each month on my column ‘Homes With Heart‘, and contribute inspirational editorials to the gorgeous lifestyle blog Style Me Pretty Living. My interior productions have also featured on the online pages of My Scandinavian Home, SFGirlbyBay and vtwonen.

In print, my styling and/or photography work can be seen in the following European magazines: vtwonen, 101woonideeën, Ariadne at Home, COUCH, 25 Beautiful Homes, Seasons, Kamille Norway, Flair, Good Homes and Sweet Living Magazin, among others. I was also one of 16 of Europe’s most prominent bloggers to collaborate on an interior design book entitled Wohnideen aus dem wahren Leben by the German publishing house Callwey. I travel throughout Europe to style and shoot interiors, and have developed a genuine passion in documenting people’s homes and the stories that go with them through imagery and words.
