Hands up if you get serious interior envy from a brief scroll on insta? Yup. Us too.
Interior instagram accounts are rife nowadays, causing us to quit buying shabby bits ‘n bobs as the result of impulse Primark musings, and instead invest in some stand-out pieces that will make the neighbours jealous (that’s not the only reason we want nice houses we promise…) So, from shabby chic to stripped back, or if a room resembling the jungle Mowgli and Baloo frequented floats your boat, then here are seven insta accounts that have us dusting off the cobwebs and shining up the bank cards.
Sorry not sorry.
Why: Paying homage to art and design, this instagram account will make you curse your South of the river condo and want to purchase something a little more Beverly Hills-cum-most incredible mansion you’ve ever seen. Ettore Sottsass was an Italian architect and designer during the 20th century whose huge portfolio of work drew across furniture, jewelry, glass, lighting, home objects and office machine design, as well as buildings and interior. In other words, he’s a bit of a cool dude with many, many strings to his housing bow.
Why: Salvesen Graham’s instagram sparks interest from the start, drawing you into the vibrant colours and beautifully decorative designs. Salvesen Graham is an interior design and decoration practice specialising in classic interiors with a modern twist, delivering results that mix golden oldies and staple favourites with more vibrant, contemporary throw-ins. If you’ve lusted over a London home look, equipped with grandiose bookshelves and a easy-to-reach from the sofa mini-bar, Salvesen Graham are the ideal candidates to add that splash of lavish to your life.
Why: Essentially just a whole host of images ft. plants, Plants in Decor is an account boasting a bringing the outdoors in theme, with foliage galore adorning all sorts of objects you’d never expect to see plants on. I guess it’s always good to turn over a new leaf though, right…
There’s no designer at the helm of this one, just a bunch of cool plant pics we think you’ll like.
Why: Quite an apt name, Room on Fire’s interiors are fire… (for those who don’t know, “fire” is pretty much the new, hip way of saying “cool”). Curated by interior designer Chloë Mccarthy, there’s a whole host of large concrete structures going on, littered with a wholly minimalist approach. Whatever is going on, it sure does work!
Why: Lotta Agaton Interiors is a perfect stumble-upon for the Scandi design lovers. Lotta triumphs the Swedish design -that’s Scandi; for those who aren’t design buffs but just love a home-spo Pinterest board – coupled with florals and embellishments.
Why: Emily Katz is a designer embracing the aztec, born in Tucson, Arizona, 1982. A peruse at her bio tells us she’s currently traveling the world teaching macrame workshops, learning about energy healing, art directing and styling photo shoots, hosting dinners and events, collaborating on interior design projects and products, and dreaming up the next adventure.
Well all we have to say that is she better be updating her insta too whilst trawling the world, because we crave that constant inspo.
Why: Schumacher might be a family owned business, but they’re certainly not keeping their design secrets in the family, with beautiful images adorning our insta-feeds. Founded in 1889, Schumacher are old souls with design knowledge at their helm, as a company synonymous with style, taste, and innovation.
The insta account also encourages its scrollers to “show us your Schumacher” with #schustagram and #makeyourmark1889. We’re not quite sure what this means, but why not give it a go?!
Why: Selency is a posh flea-market, or so it seems, providing a market area to buy and sell second-hand furniture and goods. Tempting, huh? The French brand lusts over vintage and pre-loved furniture, proving just because you’ve been loved before, doesn’t mean you can’t be loved again. Blimey, that got deep didn’t it?
