Gettin’ hygge-y with it.
Social media gets a lot of flak these days. From unattainable highlight reels to misleading paid partnerships, we give ourselves a lot of reasons to question how genuine Instagram really is. But one thing you cannot fake is a fly home. And Instagram’s got thousands of ’em.
Since decorating my flat, it took approximately 2.5 finger scrolls to realise that I hated every nook of it. While I suppressed the pain for a few months, it only took a trip to Elle’s house recently to remind myself how wonderful hers was and how shit mine is (I may or may not have panic bought a sideboard, cushions and a shower curtain that night).
While I know I’m a long way off finishing my flat (let’s all just appreciate that I’m now organised enough to keep up the application of gradual tan), Instagram has definitely inspired me to Pinterest my tits off until I get there. Here are just a few Insta faves giving me aaall the interior feels!
Kate La Vie
Kate’s feed is full of polished #ootd pics and lots of interior inspo. She and Jordan live in Glasgow and every corner of their flat is a dream. If you’re around, this dreamy interior has spilled over to their coffee shop, @marketgla.

Public service announcement: I LOVE GREY. You can imagine my joy when I came across Reena’s account. Far from dull, I find myself taking the time to stop and look closely at every shot from inside her Cardiff home. SLOW CLAP FOR REENA.
I found blogger Lucinda’s account as she started decorating her home and felt compelled to check back for regular updates. Her bio says ‘slowly doing up our first home’ and she describes her style as an eclectic mix of rustic, Scandi and industrial — which I LOVE.
