5 Instagram home accounts you should be following


Our homes and how we decorate them are a reflection of our personal style.

But translating our personal taste into tangible objects, colours and textures dotted throughout our little place in the world can often be difficult.

That's when we need a bit of visual inspiration to step us in the right direction.

And there is no better place to trigger creativity than Instagram.

The social media platform is a treasure trove of lust-worthy homes and their beautiful interior styling, meaning you will have no trouble finding an interior style that you gravitate towards.

I've found that that my own personal taste has changed over time - particularly when I have discovered a new home account that I love that offers a whole new approach to interior styling that I hadn't considered before.

And maybe you will feel the same if some of these accounts aren't already on your follow list - it could be the start of a whole new home styling journey for you!

The mothership of home accounts in my opinion.

 

I only wish my home looked like this. As I said above, sometimes home account hunting on Instagram can leave you heading down a completely different personal style path. And this was very much the case for me with Steve's account.

He uses light coloured walls throughout his home, but creates a statement with dark furniture, large green foliage in rustic vases, and gold is a strong accent colour throughout his styling.

And that Louis Vuitton antique trunk is TO DIE FOR!!

Our bow fronted dark sideboard very much reminds me of the kind of furniture that Steve would have in his home.

I imagine using our two-drawer piece with beautiful light coloured bust, a large statement lamp, some 'coffee table' books with a vase placed on top including some simple green foliage, and a gold frame or two for an accent colour.

  

(Our two-drawer bow-fronted sideboard looks incredible when styled with gold accent accessories).

If you aren't already following Steve I strongly urge you to do so. His IGTV series on interior styling is amazing content filled with incredible tips on how to mirror his techniques in your own home.

Our local girl Cathy has an incredible talent for bringing the beauty of the outdoors into her home.

She's not afraid to use dark colours, and when she does, she manages to make a room look homely and inviting.

Cathy sets the tone of her home through lots of mood lighting, with candles and fairy or festoon lights and gorgeous foliage.

I have found so much inspiration from her tablescapes.

We know Cathy is a huge fan of our faux florals!

I can see her putting good use to some of our gorgeous wildflower posies and bouquets.

Florals, pastel colours and hearts form the backdrop for Jill's Instagram account making it feel so warm and inviting.

We love her floral 'HOME' plate gallery wall.

Jill's home accessories change with the seasons, an idea that we are ALL about!

Her IGTV series includes seasonal home crafts as well as bringing the changing seasons into your kitchen - the hub of any home.

With a clear love for florals we think Jill would love one of our bespoke wreaths in her home.

Elaine uses a mix of colours throughout her home but muted pinks, light greys and creams are quite predominant.

There is a lovely contemporary feel to her interiors that brings an overall sense of calm as you scroll through her Insta feed.

We are pretty sure Elaine would fall head over heels for our gorgeous pink sofa.

And our little mirrored trays, beautiful glass cloche along with some little trinkets and tea light holders would feel right at home in one of her beautiful Instagram posts.

I've saved one of the very best until last.

The source of many's a personal home styling choice, social influencer Lydia Elise Millen is a home interiors powerhouse. 

Since moving into her modern English country home with husband Ali, she has set about completely transforming the entire living space (sometimes more than once)!

The owner of the poshest downstairs loo on the planet, she recently transformed her living room for the second time, changing the walls from a dark blue to an even darker black and I am in love!

Lydia is the perfect example of how our personal taste is forever evolving, however we may not all have her bank balance to allow us to continually change our home up so frequently!

Her signature style, like Steve Cordony, is a mix of monochrome, adding in gold as an accent colour.

She's a big fan of chunky gold frames for her walls so we know these (pictured below) would go down a treat.

Here's a few other things we think she would covet from Osborne & Co.
