For me, Instagram is something of a conduit for home porn. When I look back through the images I’ve Liked and saved over the past few years it’s clear I have a soft spot for interiors imagery. (That and an obsession with Kristen Ess’ hairstyling.) And whilst I follow a lot of furniture and homewares brands, specialist photographers and interior designers, I’ve found there are a select few Australian influencers who have a knack for creating spaces that are both inspirational and achievable. Through their homes, I’ve discovered all manner of incredible artists, special pieces and even covetable paint colours. (Also, I have definitely impulse purchased trendy greenery on account of having seen it in someone else’s space.) If you look closely you’ll see a few easy-to-do pro tricks used to great effect in these casas, from blending high and low brands to rounding out a neutral colour palette with impactful gold and black accents. One thing’s for sure—these women have some of the chicest homes on Instagram. Keep scrolling to check them out.
Sara’s go-to minimalist wardrobe colour palette also runs through her lovely home, featuring lots of neutral shades like oatmeal paired back with woods for warmth. Black accents throughout tie the space together—you’ll find them everywhere from her bedside table and pot planters to the Caroline Walls x The Undone prints in the lounge room. According to Instagram, Sara is renovating this year so we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for interiors updates. 👀
If you’re not following Brooke for interiors inspiration are you even on Instagram? The Sydneysider has one of the most incredible homes we’ve ever seen online (just check the “interior design” tag on her site). Her talent for styling is obvious—expect a mix of gorgeous old and new pieces resulting in rich, comfy-looking spaces. (Also, girl really knows how to work statement art into a room.) Beware: You will be overcome with the urge to redecorate.
Erin gives me great hope because she has children and still somehow manages to live in an incredibly chic space. Another minimalist devotee, Erin has great taste in interesting decor like terrazzo, crystals and textured ceramics. If you’re after a steady stream of room-spiration from other sources, Erin’s got you covered there too. The Melbourne-based creative and photographer is currently mid-build and shares her favourite interiors imagery on the reg.

Finally my Christmas Gift Guides are up over on my website. I have done a blog post as well as creating the new Gift Edit page that will be updated weekly until Christmas to help you with gift giving (or treating yourself) I have included some of my favourite gifts from small brands & creators to help you to shop small this festive season. As a small business myself, I know how much the support means at this time of the year! 🌸
Jasmine is quite possibly the Queen of the Instagram vignette. The talented designer, digital content creator and hand letterer knows her way around a camera too, so you can expect tap-worthy snaps of everything from her home office to her beauty stash. There are lots of pink, pastels and nude tones but Jasmine’s pretty vibe never verges on the saccharine. She’s skilled at striking the perfect balance, using lots of earthy textures and delightful finishes.
OK yes, Beck is technically from New Zealand but since she spends much of her time in Australia we’re counting her in. If you’re familiar with Beck’s stationery brand An Organised Life you’ll know she is fond of a refined colour palette. Her home is all white, black and woods with plenty of gold accents and greenery. Beck’s interiors aesthetic is pared back and considered—she’s proof you don’t need to use brights and patterns to create interest.
Talisa’s Sydney home is a study in decorating—it somehow feels both curated and full of special touches. Everywhere you look there are groupings of beautiful objects styled in a considered way. Talisa and her husband also own a spectacular collection of art which is spread throughout their home plus a lot of magazines. (Check this post for an interesting tip on how to style them vertically.) Their latest addition? A cute-as-a-button nursery.
