I don't know about you, but interiors are all I can think about right now. It's unsurprising, really, considering we're all spending a lot more time at home so we're all keen to improve our surroundings. Sales of candles, furniture and DIY goods have gone up in the past year, especially since the beginning of lockdown in March.
Like most people, I can find interiors a little overwhelming. Yes, it's highly personal but I always find looking at other people's tastes and homes incredibly useful for honing my own living space. So, I did what we love to do at Who What Wear: I decided to ask some of the people I follow on Instagram about what's on their dream interiors wish lists. All of the five women I spoke to have different tastes when it comes to their homes. Some love bold and bright pastels, others love minimalist aesthetics, and others are completely eclectic. However, they were all clear on one thing: You should always choose pieces that you love and represent you.
I realise that especially right now, not all of us are lucky enough to live somewhere that is spacious, and cabin fever is pretty much a constant state. However, there's something to be said for getting inspiration on how to adapt our living areas—no matter how big or small. That doesn't necessarily mean you need to buy a load of new pieces, though. Maybe it's just a great idea on how to adapt your sofa area into the most zen space in your home or give you inspiration on how to make your WFH office space feel more dynamic. Whatever your situation is, I hope these pieces make you love where you live.
"I love a mix of cosy and homely with a rock 'n' roll edge. I always describe it as Ralph Lauren meets Buster & Punch! My dream is for my home to feel like a boutique hotel. I want that relaxing, welcoming vibe the second you walk in the door."
"I'd describe my interiors style as the colourful maximalist! I love to pair antique with new and use colour to bring our space to life and inject some personality into our rented space."
"I dress my home like I dress myself: minimal. This way, I'm easily able to change the vibe with accessories in the way of linens, tableware, vases, etc. to match my mood."
"My interior style is all about classic and simple form. I tend to go for light colours and natural materials such as wood and rattan."
"My interior style is quite eclectic: a mix of antique, modern and high-street pieces. I love to have fun with my interiors by adding an interesting rug or accessories, keeping the more expensive pieces like sofas/tables more muted. I love to scour Sunbury Antiques Market and have found a few gems there. Soho Home and Rockett St George are my favourite sites, and you can't beat H&M and Zara Home for the high street. I have found buying what I love is the best way, and don't overthink having everything matching!"
