IG Worthy Decorating
The world of Instagram is raiding our daily lives. What once was just a collection of some of our favourite moments, is now a means of shopping, DIY projects, inspiration, recipes, and even self-help—the possibilities are endless.
When it comes to posting pictures of our cozy abodes, many of us think to make it Instagram-able means investing in high-end decor for that perfect picture. However, the secret to getting that decor-guru aesthetic is a lot easier than you may think. We’re pooling ideas on how to capture more Insta-moments around your home.
For the record, we want to clarify that any picture you take is Instagram worthy. Spend more time with your family and friends than you do analyzing every photo, post yet another picture of your dog, or bombard your feed with travel updates—it is all worthy.
I know what you’re thinking, we’re really diving in with a statement wall right off the bat. However, we’re not saying you need to go out today and paint a mural in your bedroom. Your statement wall should reflect your personality, tell a story about the person that lives in this space. If you want to go all-in with funky wallpaper, do it. If you want to keep it simple and hang a few photos, do it. You make the rules, we just suggest them (Kidding.).
Making your statement wall is a fantastic way of getting crafty. This is your opportunity to channel your inner DIY-er and fire up the creative juices. If you’re set on a pattern for your statement wall, wallpaper or stencils will be your best friend. Remember to evaluate the rest of your room first, if the rest of the space is patterns and colours, choose carefully!
I know, a lot of us are not that crafty by nature and shouldn’t be trusted with a bare wall and a can of paint. That’s fine! Your statement wall can be anything you want it to be. Get a piece of wall art, or several pieces, for a gallery. If the thought of measuring it all out and putting a perfectly placed gallery wall gives you a headache, plop them all down on a floating shelf.
