How to Create an Instagram Worthy Home

If you’re a regular reader of my blog then you’ll know I’ve got a soft spot for interior design. I love how you can change a house to a home with a few little tricks!
Last week, I visited a stunning new property in Penarth Heights and have complied my favourite bits of decor into this post so you can get your interior design fix! Read on for my tips:

Colour Scheme


Sticking to neutral colours in a room always looks great on Instagram and Pinterest photos, as having white or cream walls make it look clean and contemporary. I then think it's fun to add elements of colour with little decorative pieces like the items mentioned below. It also means that in the future if you decide to change the vibe of your room you can simply replace any decorative items and hey presto, you have a new room with the same walls!

Candles

I love candles, as I’ve said many times before, so when I saw this beautiful copper holder in the lounge I thought it looked sleek and stylish while also making it feel homely. You can also achieve a similar look with fairy lights if you'd rather not have naked flames.

Lighting

Going on from candles, lighting is key to make a house homely. We are gone from the days where they just had to be a bulb on the end of a cord, now you can brighten up your room with a fascinating light, and my top tip is to go for warmer bulbs that compliment the light from the candles. 

Photos

I never used to print photos but now I print some every month, they’re great for reminiscing and they also look fabulous if you manage to get a nice frame. The frame doesn't have to be expensive either, you can jazz up an old wooden frame by giving it a new lick of paint, or visit a charity shop to see what they've got!


Flowers


While flowers can be high maintenance and expensive, they look stunning (especially if you can get seasonal ones) however, you can always opt for some real-looking fake flowers that’ll make your room pop!

Cushions

You can literally never have too many cushions, they make any room that extra bit homely and welcoming - be it a lounge or the bedroom! If you're feeling extra creative then why not have a blast at making your own cushions from your favourite fabric?

I hope you’ve enjoyed my post, what’s your top tip for making your home pop?
