When decorating their homes, there are two camps of people. Those who hold back, and those who do not. While we’re fans of all types of design, we completely understand the desire to keep things neutral in your home, because they’re timeless! However, part of the fun in having your own home is getting to infuse a little personality into each room. One way to do this is to add a pop of colour to the space you’re decorating. We spend a lot of time perusing the best home decor on Instagram, and lately have seen a lot of design – from furniture to decor accents – using one particular colour. Here’s how to add a pop of blue anywhere in your home.
There are endless reasons to claim summer is your favourite of the seasons, but one reason stands out above the rest – the weather! Nice summer weather means you get to spend more time enjoying the outdoors.

Here are some ideas to inspire a beautiful outdoor oasis right in your own backyard.

When we scroll through Instagram looking for design inspiration, certain types of pictures really start to stand out. There are the #IHaveThisThingWithFloors shots, the #IHaveThisThingWithPink pics, and of course the #DreamKitchen moments that we all aspire to. If these trends teach us anything, it’s that there are so many design moments in both our homes and our lives just waiting to happen! You just have to look for them, and make the most of those moments. One of our favourite types of design pics to find on Instagram are the spectacular #sidetables. Here are 12 bedside table moments we wouldn’t mind waking up next to.
Every corner of your home is a design opportunity just waiting to happen. From an untouched room, to a blank wall, to a window sill, these spots can always have a little extra TLC put into them. One section of your home that shouldn’t be neglected is your stairway. Often it’s the centrepiece of your home, or one of the first things people see when they enter, so it’s important to make sure your stairs reflect your design perspective. From the railing you choose, to the steps themselves, to the decor around it, your stairway is a great place to have fun with the decor and express your own personal style. Here are some super chic stairways we found (and love!) for inspiration.
