As many of you know, I’m a keen instagrammer, I spend an awful lot of my time insta-browsing. Much of this is due to the fact that I run, and founded the very successful interiors hashtag #myhousethismonth. This has exposed me to 1000’s of beautiful homes, rooms, gardens and shops. I thought I’d start putting together a weekly round up of ~8 of the best~ features. This could include rooms, products, homes, restaurants and hotels… The internet is my oyster.
I’m going to start with ‘Colourful Spaces’, fave corners and rooms from accounts I’ve discovered through Instagram. It’s actually been super tough to narrow them down, as Instagram is FULL of colour clash sitting rooms and rainbow shelfies. Throwing colours together isn’t as easy as it looks, there’s a real art to it, infact a whole science behind it.
Here’s eight Instagram accounts who have nailed the art of the colour–pop.
This account is one of the first I followed on IG and literally brightens my feed daily. Lissi’s home is full of colourful pieces she’s collected, including the most amazing yellow wingback chair. Lissi also co-hosts the hashtag #colourmyhome, it’s a great place to find other colour loving accounts.
Kat, who refers to herself as a ‘maximalist’ has pulled out all the stops to inject both character and colour into her new build home. It’s full of quirky vintage finds and fabulous colour pop up-cycles. Kat is also a keen blogger and a co-host of #rockininteriors.
Geraldine’s London home is full to the brim of colourful corners. Vibrant pieces of furniture and art are offset against fresh white walls. Geraldine also has a amazing blog that has won many awards, including an Amara & London’s Best Interiors blog. Although, anyone who has five sofa’s all in different colours wins an award in my book!
A gin rainbow I hear you shout… oh yes! Vickie’s account is just bursting with happy thoughts and inspo. This rainbow shelfie is one of the most fabulous things I’ve ever seen, who knew this was even a thing!? Vickie also runs justaline prints, the home of beautiful, stylish typographic artwork.
Katie’s Leeds home is famously nicknamed ‘the Peach Palace’, although, I can assure you this name was adopted pre-renovation, as there’s not much of it around her pad now. Katie mixes vibrant pieces of furniture with clever lighting and her attention to detail is second to none. She’s also co-founder of @nohouserules & @styleithappy and blogs regularly.
It shouldn’t work, but oh my, it so does! Julie’s collection of vintage treasures is like an Aladdin’s cave of delights. The walls are full of old metal posters and neons, there’s even an old jukebox. It all carries through into the garden too, a real feast for the eyes. Julie’s passion for the vintage vibe is one to be applauded.
Peggy’s colourful quirky home is located in Bangor, Northern Ireland. It’s full of sumptuous velvet rugs, antiques, vintage finds and carefully curated artworks. Even with the dark walls Peggy has chosen for the the sitting room, it’s still one of the most colourful rooms on Insta! Peggy is also a co-host of #deliciousdarkdecor.
And last, but by no mean least, is Quirk & Rescue. Cue sunglasses for this East London gem, which is the home of design duo Ms. Pink and Mr Black. Bold colours adorn this property as far as the eye can see, no corner has been left untouched. They also run quirkandrescue.com which specialises in wallpaper, cushions, prints, fabric and bespoke hand-painted furniture.
I hope you liked my little round up, I’ll be back next week with another ~8 of the best~
