Lockdown means we’re racking up the hours spent in our homes, allowing us time to visually reevaluate, analyse and pull apart our interiors.
Why not use this time to channel your inner interior designer and make the change you’ve always envisioned. We know sometimes it can be difficult to know what we want, so here’s our top eight interior focused Instagram accounts:
Marc Costa is an interiors, architecture, and design focused account. His eclectic style, dreamy interior and properties are inspiring to say the least. We also love his taste in beautiful artwork.
The Tate is not strictly home or interior focused, but it’s a good place to start for artwork inspiration. The channel has tonnes of IGTV content, providing previews and highlights of its varying exhibitions.
Cate St Hill is a London based interior designer and stylist, who uses Instagram to showcase her perfectly designed home and to share design trends, styling and organising tips. Also voted one of the UK's top 10 interior design accounts by Vuelio.
The Modern House is a Real Estate Agent sharing drool-worthy properties, inspiration trends and styling tips. It’s also won an accumulation of impressive awards: Vogue’s ‘Best Interiors’, The Guardian’s ‘Best Homes’ and The Telegraph’s ‘Ultimate Interiors Account’. Enough said?
The House That Black Built is a digital creator who has a love affair with the colour black. The page follows her journey as she renovates and styles her Victorian property in Chelsea. Alongside some fantastic collaborations, she also shares design and styling tips.
Lydia Millen Home is dedicated to Lydia’s pristine modern English countryside home in Buckinghamshire. Her page ranges from DIY hacks and moodboards to general styling tips. She uses stories to add context and personality to the renovating and decorating process.
The Little Stone Cottage follows the journey of an on-going DIY restoration to a Georgian cottage in the Cotswolds. Emma, who owns the cottage and runs the page, also manages a blog which shares restoration tips with before and after shots, as well as styling and design ideas. The blog won an Amara interior blog award in 2018.
Kate Watson-Smyth is an author, blogger, journalist and Instagram extraordinaire. Her account was named Top 10 interiors account (Vogue) and No 1 UK Interiors Blog (Vuelio). Alongside the usual home decor styling tips, she also shares the interiors of those interviewed for her podcast.
