Inspired by another thread grin I've just discovered that there is a use for Instagram besides endless photos of avocados on toast and make-up 'hauls' I clearly know the wrong people

We're finally going to make a start on doing up our house this year and I'd really love some inspiration. I'm a bit magazine'd out and find Houzz difficult to navigate as I'm not really sure what style I want and there's so much on it that it's overwhelming.

A rather convoluted way of asking, I know, but who are your favourite home decor Instagrammers?

Mad about the house is good.

Following.

I also use Pinterest, OP, which ia a great app for ideas.

It's very hard to find decent UK-relevant stuff on Pinterest though. If I had a Target and a Pottery Barn Kids down my road I'd be sorted those were the days

Following with interest smile

I'm on Pinterest too, NapQueen, I like it a lot but I'd like to try new things!

Ooh, The Modern House is on Instagram! When we were house-hunting I used to love going on their website and drooling over incredible homes. Not that we could have afforded them in a million years.

They're an estate agent btw, not home decor bloggers, but they're not your average estate agent.

Im glad you started this thread OP because I was thinking exactly the same thing. I don't have an Instagram account and I'm not entirely sure how it all works. confused

I follow someone called lisadoogs it's her personal Instagram, so lots of personal stuff, but mostly photos of her gorgeous home.

NotHotDogMum Sat 13-May-17 17:47:43

OK, I've done some googling and have come up with a couple of interior design names, an estate agent and a shop I like that have Instagram feeds, but I think I'd quite like to find some more achievable ideas too. The ones I've come up with so far are -

SophieRobinsonInteriors (the bright colour-loving judge from the earlier series of BBC2's Interior Design Challenge)
retaking
TheModernHouse
WestElmUK

I'm undecided on West Elm so I'm currently having a nosey before committing.

I have no idea how Rita Konig was autocorrected to 'retaking' Sorry blush

I love instagram... and probably spend far too much time on there wink. A few of the accounts I love are suburbansalon, zaraplus3 and mrsmerrellyeah. Love the thread, watching with interest

Bumping grin maybe this would do better in chat?

Another hopeful bump smile

Instagram is my favourite of all the ' online things' . I follow a few interiors accounts but am after a specific style which you might not be after.
The way I find accounts to follow is to use the search for tags function #interiorsinspo #homeinteriors and find links to accounts you like the look of. ( sorry if I'm explaining the obvious. It took me a while to get the hang of it)
