5 interiors Instagrammers we are loving this week
Whether you use it to kickstart your next DIY project, find tips on quickly updating your space or just as some escapism during your morning commute, Instagram is stellar source for interiors inspiration. So, each week we trawl through our feed (we know, what a chore…) and pick out some interior Instagrammers that we are loving RN!
Want to see your home featured in our weekly pick? Follow us at @real_homes and tag your posts using #sorealhomes so we can find you!
A self confessed renovation addict @lexden_home is an amazing inspiration for any of you embarking on your own renovation journey. The dreamy extension which features heavily on her feed was actually inspired by one that was featured in Real Homes magazine (and if that doesn’t prove her immaculate taste…)
Agi from @agi_at_59 really knows how to dress a wall and her bright, Mid-century modern style is right up our street. We are particularly in love with her home office space, blush pink floor boards, bright pink walls and pops of red? Dreamy.
We really can’t get enough of dark interiors at the moment, and @mydarkhome_ is definitely confirming our suspicions that we are so over all white interiors! If you too are a lover of the dark side go and check out her account, filled with DIY tips, how to work small spaces and just generally swoon worthy images.
For a perfect mix of Victorian decor and modern pieces you're going to want to follow @the_idle_hands as she renovates her big old Victorian beauty. The way she combines different styles is flawless, her wallpaper selection is enviable and we totally blame her for our newly acquired obsession with brightly coloured roll top baths.

So, get those shelves looking Insta-fabulous and take a shelfie!
Winner of our first #sorealhomes competition
Put your hands together for Izzy @nest_number_9 who has won our first So Real Homes competition. Her account is definitely worth a follow if you are a fan of Scandi-modern interiors. We loved how artwork has been used to disguise the TV on this beautifully styled sideboard.
Izzy wins a £200 Amara voucher to spend on their A collection, plus a year's subscription to Real Homes magazine. Well done Izzy!
