In this quick read, we’ve pulled together some of the most popular interior design profiles on Instagram to give you some inspiration for your Leyland, Preston or Chorley home.

Are you fed up with bland magnolia walls, wilting pot plants and tired kitchen cupboards? Then grab your phone and click onto Instagram. It’s a hotbed of aspirational interior design, décor on a budget and tips on how to make the most of small spaces. Here are seven of the best accounts to follow.

1)         @budgethomedecor_uk

The name of this profile gives it away – beautiful home ideas that are affordable and easy to get hold of.

The focus of the account is how to style a room, and it gives great insight into colour schemes, soft furnishings and where to buy budget-friendly items from popular high street stores.

2)         @furniturepaintersuniteuk

Run by some of the most influential furniture artists in the UK and mentored by the renowned Jonathan Marc Mendes.  It features pieces by furniture artists from all over the UK. 

This account is full of ideas on how to refresh your existing furniture whether you are thinking sleek & modern, vintage & retro or eclectic.  All the photos and videos are tagged with the furniture artist that has created the piece so you can then follow them for further inspo or tutorials.  If you like the idea of refreshing an existing piece but don’t want to take on the challenge yourself then you can commission a furniture artist to do it for you.

3)         @apartmentapothecary

Run by interior designer Katy Orme, this account shows the transformation of her South East London home.

Simple lines, bold colours and perfectly placed statement furniture pieces have us swooning with envy. Worth a follow if you like a mix of classic pieces with modern/bold patterns.

4)         @littlebigbell

This account was voted one of London’s best interior design blogs in 2016 and is all about bright colours, bold patterns and ridiculously neat and tidy spaces (even the inside of the fridge looks perfect).

Curated by Geraldine Tan, an interior design teacher amongst other things, her colour choices might not be for everyone, but are well worth a look if you’re fed up with plain white walls.

5)         @staceysolomon and @mrshinchhome

These two women are not only BFFs, but they’re design, DIY and cleaning gurus. Once you’ve scrolled past the countless pics of their cute kids, they both offer great cleaning and tidying tips, budget-friendly soft furnishings, the most organised kitchen cupboards you’ve ever seen and beautifully decorated rooms.

6)         @ikeahackersofficial

We’ve probably all visited the big blue and yellow furniture God at least once in our lives. Who hasn’t struggled with flat-pack drawers or left the marketplace lugging all sorts of unnecessary bits and pieces? This account is genius. Not only does it style common furniture pieces in unique ways, but it also offers advice and hacks on how to fix everyday problems.

7)         @ihavethisthingwithtiles

At first glance, yes, this is just an account of someone’s shoes on various floors, but it’s also a tile-lover’s haven. From amazing colours to geometric patterns, ceramics to cement, here’s a profile all about making tiles trendy. You’ll be desperate to give your bathroom floor a makeover once you’ve had a peep.
