While Pinterest may be your go-to for interiors inspo, we’ve found a new unlikely way to keep your fingers on the pulse of the coolest home décor brands – Instagram!
We've taken it upon ourselves to follow some the biggest fashion, beauty and lifestyle influencers out there, to get a sneak peek inside their trendy homes. And you can bet we’ve clicked on every single tag to find out where they get their design inspo.
From Byron Moroccan rug retailers to boutique cult furniture stores, these are the home décor brands our favourite Instagrammers – and us – are currently obsessing over.
Creative guru and stylist Brooke Testoni is no doubt one of the most stylist women on Instagram. Not only in the sartorial sense, this Sydney local also has impeccable taste when it comes to interiors. Her gorgeous Mosman home is full of lustworthy items. Luckily for us, she’s always sharing glimpses of her design-filled home, which essentially means that we can stalk every brand she tags then add everything to our wish list.
See the ceramic vases, casually placed on Brooke’s dining table? They’re from an Australian design and ceramic studio Marloe Marloe, whose head designer Marloe Morgan creates elegant artisanal creations. Her pieces have a defined aesthetic that has forged her cult status within the art scene as well as thrust her onto the feeds of stylish Instagrammers everywhere.
Zoë Foster Blake
Zoë Foster Blake is Australia’s “it girl.” She’s the founder of Go-To Skincare, former Beauty Editor at Cosmo and Harper’s BAZAAR, and all-round entrepreneurial goddess. She’s always giving out beauty recommendations (and life recommendations) in her countless collection of books, blogs and from her personal social accounts – and when Zoe speaks, we listen. She’s also just undergone a major bathroom renovation, and thankfully, she’s shared (and tagged) all of it’s peachy pink goodness on her Instagram feed.
This swoon-worthy snap of her bathroom had us gazing in awe with its earthy-peachy-pink palette. It's basically our dream bathroom set up. The space features all the latest bathroom trends (subway tiles, terrazzo flooring and minimalistic cabinetry) but the one thing we can’t get over is the inspired light fittings. Australian lighting designer Volker Haug takes centre stage with a suspended globe between the two vanity cabinets. Despite being strikingly beautiful, we also assumed Zoe (aka beauty queen) has picked the perfect lighting for doing her make-up too.
Saasha Burns is the founder and creative director of luxe wellness company BEAR as well as being a model and creative consultant. Her social feeds are a curated edit of her visually beautiful lifestyle, that sees her travelling between Paris, L.A., Tokyo and Hong Kong for work. A look at her sun-drenched Instagram account reveals she’s just bought a new home in Byron Bay, and has transformed it to look like a little piece of paradise. Her achingly cool pad is best described as vintage-boho, and comes decked out with local brands like Sarah Ellison and Tigmi Trading.
Her space embraces natural materials, textures and muted tones through the addition of some Tigmi Trading pieces. The Byron brand sources lush vintage and artisan rugs, textiles and art from Morocco to the Mediterranean. The foundation of Saasha’s home is the beautiful vintage Turkish Oushak rug that she pairs with velvet cushions for a cosy yet sophisticated look.
Our girl crush Jasmine Dowling is a multi-talented creative whose talents range from creating bespoke lettering, branding, styling and photography. Her job in digital content creation means she has a picture-perfect feed where she regularly posts flatlays of products and homewares in her beautiful home in Queensland.
While you may be captivated by the many wonderful products she’s featured here (small brands and local creators), if you look a little closer, she’s also tagged the table that the products are sitting on. The light timber side table is from sustainable brand Ethnicraft, whose environmentally conscious furniture collection ranges from dining tables to chairs to bedside tables. Thanks Jasmine!
Full-time fashion blogger Talisa Sutton knows a thing or two about style. She’s the Editor-In-Chief of Badlands Journal, the popular fashion and beauty blog, where she shares everything from fashion tips to her beauty must-haves. She’s always had an eye for design since studying Fine Arts. This comes through in her personal style, but is also reflected in her stylish Kensington pad. The interiors are Scandi-minimalist-meets-Australian-coastal-style, and a little look at her feed gives insight into how she nailed this look.
This dreamy shot of her lounge room perfectly encapsulates how she's merged a Scandinavian look with Australian design. The minimal and abstract artwork on her wall is by Danish artist Christiane Spangsberg and the couch is from Paddington-based furniture store, MCM House. MCM house is all about contemporary design with a hint of coastal-chic, and have earned a reputation for their loose linen sofas. The one pictured here in Talisa's apartment is the classic Joe sofa complete with a soft linen slip cover and matching cushions.
