As an interior stylist, the owner of the Colourful Bed & Breakfast Tanja de Vries has styled a great deal of the city’s bed and breakfasts. “I had so much fun styling accommodations, that I decided to start a bed and breakfast myself,” she says. Her own colourful style and personal twist became a unique selling point for the very popular accommodation, which is situated in a beautiful old mansion on a quiet street in the centre of Amsterdam. “I didn’t want to have IKEA furniture and make it look like any other place. I combined my own taste and experience as an interior designer.”
