Before the internet, we used to rely on tear outs from magazines and the IKEA catalogue to get inspiration for our homes.
But now a quick swipe on your smartphone can unleash a world of interior designers and homeowners with excellent taste, who can inspire you to mix, match and DIY your way to your dream home.
Whether you like your interiors to err on the side of minimal, prefer your space to be cosy and cluttered or like your pad to be peppered with plants, these are the Instagram accounts that will have you double tapping on your commute home.
Look at these Instagram accounts:
1. Alyssa kapito
On Instagram, they mix their own work — airy, tailored rooms — with posh urban exteriors. “We try to break the mold every time,” says Alyssa Kapito
2. Kate Arends
Kate Arends is a Minnesota-based design blogger and marketing consultant. Her Instagram account @witanddelight_ features images of her beautiful home, her dreamy office, and bonus—her adorable newborn, August.
3. Emily Henderson

Did you know that there are only 4 months left in 2017? Where did the year go? Well, this year we’ve started a few new trends on the blog, and one of my favorites has been our Style School videos. Head to the blog to see a round-up of our best styling videos (like “how to put together a reading nook”). 🏠 @ginny_macdonald 📷 @zekeruelas
