In case you hadn't noticed, we LOVE Instagram – we've even got our very own Insta-community at #sorealhomes. We've made it our mission to bring you ideas and inspiration from the best interior Instagrammers, so you can use them to kickstart your next DIY project and find tips on interior design for your home. 

We have found so many interiors Instagrammers who provide us with a never-ending stream of gorgeous images, so we thought we would delve a bit deeper into some of their favourite styles, ideas and designs. Here, Theresa Gromski, the style guru behind @theresagromski, tells us about her top five homeware buys...

1. My favourite trick for adding texture

'This vase will add a lovely bit of subtle texture to you room with the contrasting dipped glaze and geometric pattern. Perfect for displaying a single bloom or just as a decorative object in a display.'

Embossed glazed vase, £40, Cox and Cox .

2. My favourite vintage find (that's not really vintage!)

'I think every room should have at least one vintage piece and this elegant mirror ticks that box – and is such great value as well!'

3. My favourite way to add greenery

'I love house plants in my home and if you struggle to keep them alive or need a touch of greenery in a dark spot this is perfect and it looks so real! I seriously couldn’t tell it was faux. The concrete and bronze pot perfectly accents the cactus and adds a beautiful metallic touch to your interior.'

Large faux cactus, £49, M&S.

IN A ROW all my plant gang together for #myhousethismonth Well thank f*ck it's Friday! What a week. I'm not one to moan on here but this one's been a challenge. I've been ill, and I'm never poorly so when I am it hits me like a ton of bricks. I've been main lining benylin all week with the absolute worst cough, so bad I actually threw up from coughing yesterday 🤒This together with my mum being on holiday so had no help with childcare. Also unfortunately combined with my 2 year olds complete obsession with our bouncy castle at the moment, her first words every day are bouncy castle out mummy! And I can't just put it up and sit relaxing at a safe distance with a cuppa whilst she has a gentle bounce, oh no! I have to get in too and follow her strict instructions. Bounce mummy, bounce higher, lift me, chuck me over there. Ffs I'm a broken woman. Bank holiday weekend you can't come soon enough, now if I could just stop coughing so I can actually keep a G&T down I'll be golden. #plantgang #plantstrong #jungalowstyle #jungalino #vintagehome #mybohoabode #bohoismyjam #myvintageabode #howivintage #thriftstorefinds #howithrift #earthinspiredhome #houseplantsofinstagram #ihavethisthingwithplants #urbanjunglebloggers #urbanjungle #botanicals #greenery #houseplantlove #greenfingers #plantsmakepeoplehappy #bohemiandecor #scandiboho #modernrustic #rustichomedecor #interior_delux #sodomino #apartmenttherapy #myinterior Theresa Gromski

5. My favourite way to add warmth to a room

'With its natural tones and simple design, this lamp will add some texture and interest to a side table and I think would look good in any room. I love the bamboo base as well to add warmth to a room.'
