Instagram inspiration: Our top 8 interior profiles

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 humble house plant appears in many artists’ depictions of interiors. While flowers are often considered symbols of fertility, we may see the house plant as a symbol of domesticity. As most of us are finding ourselves indoors, perhaps the house plant can offer a small fragment of nature within our own four walls. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We'd love to see the plants that are bringing colour, inspiration or comfort to your day-to-day during this time. Upload a portrait of your house plant, tag @tate and we'll share a selection on our story to celebrate the beauty that’s thriving within our own homes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Gillian Ayres OBE, Crivelli’s Room I 1967

Savouring these precious moments right now 🤍 Playtime on the bed in pyjamas and watching the birds forage for insects with Ginny alongside. . . How’s everyone doing? I’ve had a day today where I’ve neglected the house work and focused on the little things (hence the un-made bed) and it’s felt good! Anyone else doing anything similar? Or is it just me that hasn’t made the bed today? 😂 . . #bedroomdecor #featurewall #littlemoments #isolationchronicles #rusticdecor #periodhome #interiorwarrior #interiorescapism #dream_interiors #weeklyinteriorinspo #mycreativeinterior #ourlovelyinteriors #storyofmyhome #hometohave #cottagehome #englishcottage #lovetohome #forthehome #slowstyle #theartofslowliving #quietchaotics #whitetie #farrowandball #cotswoldstone #stonewall #bedroomideas #masterbedroomdecor #cornersofmyworld #nestandflourish #bedroominterior

[AD] For the last post of my year long collaboration with @britishwool I have written about decorating with patterned rugs and carpets. 1: if patterned carpet is too scary, consider hemming a large piece and turning it into a rug. That’s much cheaper too. 2: you can still have other patterns in the room but keep the colours tonally happy. 3: keep your patterns in the same field: if you’ve gone for meadows and butterflies don’t suddenly add tropical birds and leaves. 4: don’t forget that patterns are more practical than plain - they hide the dirty marks much better.
