We’ve all seen the reality shows where stylists ambush poor unsuspecting souls, insult their fashion sense, and then give them a brand new look by the end of the program. Usually the process involved taming frizzy hair, peeling off layers and layers of heavy makeup, and toning down wardrobe choices. Think of this bedroom “before” shot as the willing participant, and this next “after” photo as the new and improved, more sophisticated, version of its former self.

Nina is the Norwegian woman behind the blog Stylizmo, and recently documented the renovation of her home. She has a distinct Scandinavian modern aesthetic that’s modern, minimalist, and serene. Her bedroom renovation process involved paring down the room to its bare essentials, removing unnecessary architectural features in favor of sleek lines and smooth surfaces. They stripped carpet, plastered over the paneled ceiling, removed molding, and painted everything grey and white.

Thanks Nina!
