How to Make Your Home Look Instagram-Worthy
Get home-styling tips from the pros.
Planning to decorate a bare space or revamp a spot in your home soon? Take inspiration from the talented interior designers of the Philippine Institute of Interior Design (PIID) who joined AllHome's designer competition dubbed "Collab: Amazing Partners & Pieces Vignette Styling Contest," wherein they styled specific areas of the home.
The vignette named "Coastal Retreat" (featured in the main image and photographed below) by Angeli Antonio and Rica Tai placed first. This bedroom setup looks at home both in a beach house and an urban condo. A calming color palette of blue, white, and beige gets a jolt of energy from orange accents.
Up your interior styling game and get those double taps from your Instagram followers by learning from these other vignettes:
1. Bring in the greens.
"Do in Your Home" by Aaron Paglicawan, Bernadine Tan, and Nicka Ventura
If you work best if you're surrounded by greenery, you'll love this craft corner (or home office) and pocket garden in one. Add plants to make your work space come alive. And to help you stay on top of your tasks and goals, include a chalkboard for your vision or weekly schedule.
2. Keep it neat and clean.
"Powder Room" by Melissa Enriquez, Gabrielle Racelis, Dea Sy
This powder room seems straight out of a boutique hotel with a Scandinavian aesthetic, thanks to the neutral colors and clean lines. Add a dash of hygge with things that make you feel light and happy, like plants and scented candles. Use baskets to corral towels and other items to maintain the relaxing atmosphere.
3. Play with lines and patterns.
"Kid's Dreamland" (boy's bedroom; second place) by Caren Dychangco and Diana Tan
This nautical-inspired bedroom can suit your little beachcomber. Stick to natural materials like wood and wicker to further channel a seaside villa. While you can't go wrong with white, don't limit yourself to neutral hues. Add lines and patterns in calming shades of blue to your coastal retreat in the heart of the city.
4. Color your world.
"Rainy Reverie" (third place) by Sheryl Fabre and Patrick Roy Javier
Beating the rainy-day blues with color doesn't have to be overwhelming. Make use of flowers! Also, from curtains and pillows; to vases; and framed prints, choose an eye-catching color combination of blue, yellow, and green to create a lively, sunny atmosphere.
5. Be simple and sweet.
"Kid's Dreamland" (girl's bedroom; second place) by Caren Dychangco and Diana Tan
Fill your toddler's personal sanctuary with furniture and accessories in pastel shades. Choose patterned bed linen and curtains to make the kid's bedroom look playful but also cozy for your active little one. After all, kids' bedrooms should be a space where they can let their imagination run wild and encourage them to get enough rest.
6. Showcase your personality.
"Mix and Match" by Verpa Anne Lubuguin, Camille Depano, and Ken Hirata
Sometimes, the most unique spots are the ones with accent pieces that stand out. Take, for example, these living and dining areas for a newlywed couple. It combines rustic and modern pieces for an authentic look that showcases their individual personalities. When selecting decor, remember to stay true to your nature so you can feel truly at home.
7. Bring the outdoors in.
"Summer in July" by Phoebe Teodoro and Hilary Yu
It's already the "ber" months, but it's still a good idea to recreate a summer day on an outdoor lawn inside your dining area. Decorate the light-colored brick wall with framed plants. And before you dig in, take a photo and share it on IG.
