We’ve all done it- scrolled through Pinterest and social media sites like Instagram at beautiful interiors, and wondered how it’s possible to make our own homes look as nice. Unlike homeware magazines, often the images we see of interiors on social media are taken by real people in their actual homes, and so although they look incredible it shows that it can be done. We might know that in reality it won’t look this immaculate twenty four hours a day and ours won’t either (after all, we don’t live in show homes).

But it’s nice to be able to clean and put your home together nicely when you want to- whether it’s to impress guests or just to enjoy yourself. There are plenty of tips and tricks you can learn from they way they’re styled and apply them to your own property. Here are some ideas!
Start with a blank canvas
If you look at lots of beautiful rooms on social media, you’ll notice they’ve started with a blank canvas. White walls for example make any space look light, bright and airy. Colour and texture is then added and built up with other items. If you want to add colour, consider a statement wall for drama. Using a very patterned paper on all walls or a dark colour can draw everything in. Plus it can look a little much when you start adding furniture and accessories and styling the room.
Style shelves, sideboards and coffee tables
It’s these kinds of areas that really look impressive when they’re styled well. You can find all you need to know about design online so do your research. For example, smaller items can be grouped together on a tray. A mixture of different heights, colours and textures can be used. Learn how to layer up items so that it looks put together without being cluttered or chaotic. Keep an eye out in the shops for cute accessories that really catch your eye- candles, plants, ornaments and frames are all things that can be used. Check out hashtags like #shelfie on Instagram to see how others have gone about it.
Find the right storage
We know that our homes can’t look spotless all day every day- these are rooms that are used by ourselves and our families. However, one way to help keep the chaos in check and keep everything as neat and tidy as possible is to have the right storage in place. This allows you to easily put things away without too much mess or clutter accumulating. Use things like storage footstools or ottomans to quickly store extra blankets or kids toys if you want to quickly get the room in order. Utilise cupboards, fit them with shelves, hooks and baskets so everything can be put away once it’s been used without being left out as a mess.
