Hello December and welcome back to my blog. It’s my last one for 2019 (where has the time gone?)
As we draw the year to a close, I decided that I would finish by sharing with you 10 Instagram Home accounts that I have find to be great sources of inspiration throughout the year.
The lovely Catherine owns the most beautiful & cosy English home called Pear Tree Cottage. With a cute name like that you know you are in for treat before even going through the front door.
Her interior is based on simple country living using gently muted tones of white and grey teamed up with warm wooden furniture and wicker hearts. Her photo styling of quality home accessories and passion for home baking makes for an enviable Instagram feed.
An interior Instagram account featuring Janet’s lifestyle in her stunning Edwardian terrace house.
Janet has done a superb job of making a comfortable yet modern home whilst retaining the character of her period home. Check out the white fireplace in her bedroom – it’s so lush!
Also, she is a wonderful advocate for small home ware businesses which is why we love her!
If, like me, you are fan of home interior TV programmes, you may have seen this house featured on the BBC 2 show Your Home Made Perfect.
From a 90’s new build with a poor and sorry layout to the most amazing transformation, all perfectly remodelled for modern family living. The architect absolutely made the best of the awkward space and what they did with the staircase (or rather creating a new one out of the garage space) was nothing short of brilliance.
This Swedish Instagram account has a massive following and it’s not hard to see why. I love the modern Scandinavian style of this home and the way it flows. The use of white tones and the textures of the carefully selected décor accessories really do capture the essence of ‘Hygge’ life.
Take a look at her hallway entrance photographs. They are a favourite inspiration of mine
This is the 150 year old Victorian home of a lovely couple and their Frenchie dog, Nigel. This Instagram account was inspired by the hugely popular Instagram feed of @mrshinchhome . With period feature wooden floor boards throughout the downstairs and elegant shutters in the big bay window (I’m so jealous) this style is right up my street.
Check out the feature wall in the dining room. I love their use of a moody dark colour on the back wall.
Be sure to check out the orangery style dining room overlooking the stunning walled garden with raised sleeper flower beds and decking. Imagine having breakfast at this table whilst watching the seasons change.
The exterior is particularly stunning with double height barn shutter doors adorning the façade.
Such a unique home!
This minimalist Scandinavian home is exactly what I would aspire for my home.
Although the owner uses a lot of white throughout her interior, it never looks clinical or cold. The carefully curated home décor captures that fine balance between modern pared back chic and that cosy homely feel. There are also hints of monochrome to add interest to the rooms.
Another Swedish account for you to explore.
This lady is a marvel when it comes to accessorising with candles. The welcoming warmly lit photographs really want to make you step into her home, put your feet up and relax. Her styling and feed looks like it belongs in high class interiors magazine.
Anyone who knows me knows I love a bit of green foliage in the home and in my product photographs. What this lady has done with a hula hoop and some faux ivy to create a feature chandelier is inspired!!! She is genius in my opinion!
Plus, her pets are very cute too!
Okay, so this isn’t a home account but it is worthy of a mention on my blog because I thoroughly enjoy his photos popping up on my feed. This young man is a wildlife photographer based in Finland. What I love about this Instagram account is the way he captures the unique character of each wild animal he photographs.
Scroll through the feed and look out for the cute raccoon peeking over a log. Your heart will melt.
Have a great Christmas and a very happy new year folks
