Now trending: pink plastered walls

@emmacook____ lets texture do the talking here. The plastered walls are clean and unobscured, except for strategic leafy greenery (and a furry friend). It’s a minimal, effortless look that oozes maximum style.

Spending more time indoors = the need for somewhere to escape to. And we’d gladly make @oakappledecor’s bathroom our base. High, plastered walls, mixed metals and a splash of pattern make for an oh-so Instagrammable space. That’s what it’s really all about, isn’t it?

White walls? We don’t think so. @melanie.licht’s blush tones, soft textiles and natural accessories ensure her minimal living space doesn’t feel cold. It’s the perfect place to unwind after a long day. We’re longing to put our feet up on that pouffe.

The starting point to your self care? Symmetry. We’re feeling calmer just looking at this sleek double-sink situation. @helloflorauk creates a modern moment with emerald green tiles, plaster-pink paint and brass fixtures.

Did someone let @1930s_semi_charmed_life in on all the best interior secrets? Houseplants (more on that here), rattan furniture and a dusky pink base; it’s the trifecta of trends. She’s been clever here, too – painting the top part of the wall white creates the illusion of more height.

That natural look everyone’s into? This trend is perfect for bridging the gap between indoors and out. @flames_house emphasises those vibes with materials like jute and rattan (she must have seen this article), while maintaining a modern feel – note the matte black and green painted panel.

Sometimes, it’s the simple things. Textured linen, muted colours and vintage accessories – plus that clever block of moss paint is a contemporary alternative to a traditional headboard. As @drawn_london says, this is understated elegance, done just right.
