If you want your home to have that instagram-worthy feel, you’ve come to the right place. There’s nothing quite like loving where you live and feeling houseproud, but it can be tough to know where to start. Remember, although you want this instagrammable home, it doesn’t mean you should copy every other style you see. There’s no need to buy a big grey sofa and paint everything in 50 shades of grey (no pun intended) to get the ‘Mrs Hinch Home’ look. Ultimately, you want your home to be a reflection of yourself and your own personality. With that in mind:
- Use Big Mirrors
Big mirrors help to reflect light around your home and can be a big help in making it look instagrammable. Not only will it make your home look so much bigger, large mirrors can give just about any room a luxe feel. They can also be the perfect statement item to give your room some oomph. Don’t be afraid of investing in a great mirror if you can. If you’re crafty, you could even DIY one.
- Don’t Neglect Your Artwork
Whether you consider yourself an art connoisseur doesn’t matter. Don’t neglect your artwork and make sure you have some pieces that you really like inside of your home. You can display one large piece above your bed or sofa, or you can go all out and show off a selection of pieces in a gallery wall style. You can really have fun with this, using different styles, sizes, and frames to create a look you love.
- Add Interesting Elements
There are all kinds of interesting elements you can add to your home to give it that instagram worthy vibe. Something like Fleetwood Fox Stair Runners on your stairs could add some texture and pattern, which always makes your home look more interesting. Make sure you find ways to include cushions, rugs, and an abundance of other items to bring in texture and add depth to your home.
- Mix Up Your Patterns and Colours
Mixing up patterns and colours might seem scary, but there are ways you can do this without looking like you did it with your eyes closed. Using a colour wheel is a great way to find out which colours look best together, even if they contrast one another. When it comes to using patterns, using three is a good idea – but make sure you use them in varying amounts. For example:
- Use 10% of one pattern.
- Use 30% of another pattern.
- Use 60% of the final pattern.
- Try using monochrome patterns and a coloured pattern to get great results without trying too hard.
- Add as Many Plants as You Can Look After
Plants bring life and happiness into the home, and they are incredibly instagrammable. Make sure you add as many as you can look after and your home will be filled with joy and plenty of photo opportunities.
- Centre Your Furniture Rather Than Pushing It Against The Wall
Don’t push your furniture against the wall – it makes your home look claustrophobic. Instead, centre your furniture (even just a little) and create a more social space, opening up each room.
