We're currently being urged to practise social distancing, but we're looking on the bright side and opting to use our periods of isolation to spruce up our homes a little. With the increase in the amount of time we'll be staying indoors, it's high time to nest, and to transform our spaces into havens in which to escape the current anxieties of the world. Personally, we turn to Instagram first for inspiration in all areas of our life (with corresponding saved folders for style, recipes, restaurants to try - you get the idea) - so, it’s obviously our platform of choice and first point of call for interior ideas. Here, the accounts - and homes - that’ve got us inspired.

Scandi Stunners

Our appetite for all things Scandinavian is showing no sign of abating, which is why Scandinavian Homes is a favourite of our Instagram interiors edit. Run by a Swedish interiors stylist, expect plenty of bright and airy images of Nordic homes decked out with covetable light fittings and mid-century design chairs. Hygge lovers rejoice.

Maximalist Magic

Maximalism fiends will find their fix with the Instagram account of de Gournay, that opulent purveyor of wallpaper, porcelains and fabrics (Kate Moss and Poppy Delevingne are both fans). Their Instagram highlights some very chic spaces decorated with their Chinoiserie-inspired wares, full of bold and dreamy colours and antique pieces – plus it offers a peek into the homes of some of the most exacting interior design lovers worldwide. Completely OTT and we’re here for it.

Cosy Vibes

Modern and light-filled homes that feels like you could immediately jump into the photo and start living in them: if this sounds to your liking, then we suggest you immediately follow The Design Chaser. The homes, in muted shades of creams and grey, strike the perfect note between chic and comfortable, with Scandi-influenced pieces, soft fabrics and linens, and architectural light fixtures.

Eclectic Energy

Lovers of colour and spaces with character and personality will be enamoured with the homes decorated by Studio Ashby, a London-based design firm. They have a clear predilection for earthy colours that make for warm and welcoming spaces, and unique furniture pieces and exotic accessories that will have you dreaming.

Style on the Small Side

If you’re an apartment-dweller, you don’t have to sacrifice style just because space is limited. Apartment Therapy showcases beautifully-appointed flats in a kaleidoscope of styles for every taste, with plenty of pops of colour and greenery, that will get you inspired to get (re)decorating – whether you’ve got bags of room at home or not.
