In caring for our space, we care for ourselves.

With near-constant doing – travel, work, commute, errands – you move from space to space with little time to consider each one. With the strange happenings of this year, an even more novel experience emerged: we sank into our inhabited spaces. The extended time at home allowed us to explore every nook and cranny again, dust and reorganize (or not), and cast a critical eye over long-ago choices that have grown tired. Our space has an undeniable effect on our mood and wields the potential to inspire or exhaust us in a single glance.

How a home should look and function is a completely personal concept but the pleasure of affecting positive change in your surroundings is universal. It can be difficult to access fresh waves of inspiration confined to the same walls; so we have curated a list of our favourite interiors accounts and companies on social media. Instagram burst onto the social technology scene and has since become an invaluable outlet for creatives and companies to share their unique vision. As a magazine-at-your-fingertips, its endless decorating inspiration can’t be beaten. Our varied recommendations span traditional and modern, renovation and decoration - may they be the spark you need to breathe new life into your space…
