Are you envious of the beautiful homes you see on Instagram? Follow these 9 simple tips and you can achieve that as well!
1. Have an Instagram wall
One of the favourite thing instagrammers like to do is to pose against a nice wall. To post nice photos of your home on Instagram, you don’t need your entire house to be as Instagram worthy. Simply decorate around the wall, or paint it in a nice colour or pattern; now you have an effortless and totally adorable Instagram spot at home.
2. Less is more
Let’s be real. It is not possible for our rooms to always look like this. But the key here is to remove things that are less attractive out of the frame – you don’t need your tissue packets on the table when you take the picture. On the other hand, you may add in things that make the photo looks nicer even if it might not make sense, for example putting your favourite pair of shoes beside your table.
3. Go all white!
If you do not know which colours to match with which, always go white. It is the easiest way to achieve a chic and stylish look in your home. You almost can never go wrong with this colour scheme!
4. Statement plants
When in doubt, add plants. People on the instagram LOVE plants, and I do not blame them. Look how photogenic plants are and how they instantly brighten up the photos!
5. Books and Magazines
Even if reading is not your favourite hobby, you cannot deny that they make perfect home décors. If you do not have enough books to fill up a shelf, just lay a pile of them on the table and see them add a touch of class to your room.
6. Your pet
Guess what? Your pets are probably the best accessories to anything. On the coach or the floor, they instantly make instgram worthy pictures. I mean seriously, cannot. handle. all. that. cuteness......
Rug is a good way to play with patterns. While everything is kept simple, a rug can give the needed pop of colour and drama to your room. It is also a good way to make all your furnitures look more put together.
8. Follow the photography rules
To be really honest, the way to achieve an instagram worthy home is to know how to take the photo. The first and utmost rule: Align your frame. Decide what you want inside the frame. Take the photo from around your belly height, and make sure the horizontal lines and vertical lines are straight. Use the grid in your camera to help you out if you need to!
The last and most important step… never be afraid to filter your photos. ‘Nuff said.
