#InteriorInfluence19: 28 Irish Instagrammers who are nailing their interiors photography

By Aoife Valentine Secor 16-10-2019

It's time! We're announcing our full shortlists for the Interior Influence 2019 Awards, celebrating Ireland's online creative community in House and Home style. We wanted to shine a light on all of our incredible nominees - and believe us, there is A LOT of talent out there - by introducing you to the shortlisted accounts in every category. 

We all know that without gorgeous photography, Instagram wouldn't be one of our favourite platforms for discovering new interiors and homes. This is the shortlist for 'Best Use of Photography' - the account that nails its interiors photography, sponsored by Desenio.

No sign of Hurricane Lorenzo hitting us here just yet thankfully so I'm going to brave the elements and head out for a run 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️. Only two days back to work and I definitely need some exercise to clear my head💆‍♀️. It's amazing how something as simple as a quick run can give you that lift you need. There are two things that immediately lift my mood and cheer me up, (minds out of the gutter please☺️😂) a tidy house and exercise! Oh three actually... red wine 🍷😜. How is it where you are this evening🌜? Any sign of the storm? Keep safe everyone xx . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #inmydomaine #instabedroom #bedroomdesign #lovethewayyouhome #cornersofmyhome #sodomino #peepmypad #ispyraddesign #omysa #interiorwarrior #meandmyabode #prettylittleiiinspo #irishhomes #irishinteriors #designblog #interiorinspo #interiorsblog #selfbuild #bohobedroom #mybohoabode #bohemianliving #bohohomedecor #plantsmakepeoplehappy #myplantlovinghome #picturewindow #archedwindow #viewsfordays #wovenformyhome #ahousebythetrees

Good morning insta! Happy Friday to you all! Having a real lull in energy this past few days, time to stock up on the winter vitamins i think! . . Over @storyofmyhome they’re talking about #milkingit well I’m sure I’m milking it with this fireplace fixture! I might have shared it a few times but it’s my favourite transformation 😍 this room was cream and green with a yellowey fireplace. If you swipe over you’ll see the before! The wee glass table was definitely a favourite find, @houseandhomemagazine I got it and a matching console unit for not much more than a song as a little place that sells ex display furniture. I love them!! . . Enjoy your Friday guys xx . . . #storyofmyhome #houseandhomemag #houseandhomemagazine #livingroominspo #livingroomdecor #myinteriorsquares #mydiy #mydiymydecor #farrowandballpaint #farrowandballrailings #ikeaatmine #fireplacemakeover #fireplacedecor #walltowallstyle #interioristas #interior4you1 #interior2you #interior_delux #newinteriorsontheblock #discoverunder5k #myhometoinspire #myinteriorsquares #myinteriorvibe #myhometoinspire #houseplants #pimpupmypad #mirrormirror #myseasonalrevamp #howimonochrome

I’m nearly finished the attic. My beautiful swing chair is from @jysk.ie it’s the second swing chair I have hanging in my home. I love them so much. You can style them to suit your own decor. I chatted about it in my stories today if you want to have a look. I added a few colourful wool tassels to mine & fairy lights. I just went all pale pink with Rachel’s bedroom. She’s almost 16 and has her own style. She likes grey, pink & silver sparkles. 😳 So we had to compromise on a colour. I love flowery wallpaper & dark colours 😂 I’m off to the cinema now to see Joker with my husband x Swipe right ▶️▶️ Seaweed wallpaper from @wmorrisandco Colourtrend paint BEAG from @carlowpainthub #atticbedroom #tikkurilapaint #carlowpainthub #williammorriswallpaper #colourmyhome #designsponge #apartmenttherapy #pinkceiling #mygorgeousgaff #myeclectichome #myeclecticspace #mygorgeousgaff #colourmyhome #banthebeige #swingchairs #jysk

Happy Sunday! What a difference it makes not having wine on a Saturday night! Yesterday consisted of a mammoth 14km walk around Belfast, a quick stop for lunch @barkingdbelfast and then an evening spent baking banana bread...not my usual weekend but I’m loving the chilled out vibes. Also I thought I would share another before and after of our living-room, as I’ve been feeling creative this weekend and have decided to revamp the bathroom. I will share some images in the next couple of weeks, in the meantime swipe to see some before images of our lounge #livingroominspo #livingroomdesign #beforeandafterrenovation #mycolourfulhome #mycolourfulinterior #myboldhues #herringbonefloor #highceilings #myeclectichome #myeclecticmix #mybohoabode #bohoismyjam #myhyggehome #myplantaesthetic #darkwalls #styleitdark #darkinteriors #sassyhomestyle #interiorinfluence19 #interiormilk #stopandstaredecor #walltowallstyle #deliciousdarkdecor #greathomestaketime #storyofmyhome #myrenovatedreality #myrenostory #victorianhouse #homeinspo4you #colourmyhome

Back to pink! The table pumpkins got a little makeover this weekend, along with a new wall mural 👏👏👏 I had a pastel sky scene here when we had our doll’s table out, it was a super simple cloud effect with chalk pastels (I actually remembered to take a ‘before’ shot) but when we moved the dolls house back to the playroom I wanted something that suited the table more. Myself and Daniel (our 6 year old) agreed on a rainbow...of sorts 😉 He helped me draw it out with string, a thumbtack and a pencil and then I was left to my own devices while he drew his own “proper” rainbow 😂 I went with left over tins of paint, mostly @colourtrendpaints from previous schemes, Elfin, Beag and Stuccowork are all featured here 👍 I’m not convinced it’s completely finished yet, the teal is not 100% what I’m after and I’m also thinking a gold band would look fab here so may call on Bronagh @foxhollowstyle for some paint advice on this, she is the queen of gold lines! The ombre effect was spontaneous so still debating whether to keep this or not 🤔 I love how Jess @jessjones.the_art_room achieved her rainbow stairs with blocks of colour so I’d say I’ll be returning to this but for now I’ll let it be, it sits really well here and even the OH said “it looks like it’s always been there” so we’re on the tight track. The pumpkins got a coat of some of the soft colours and then a little blossom addition, sure why not, I wonder what other alterations they’ll have before October is done 😁🌸💕 Happey Monday everybody x - - - - - #crashbangcolour #givemeallthecolor🌈 #styleitreal #pinkinmygaff #thiscreativehome creativehome #walltowallstyle #colorlovedecor #myeclecticshack #apartmenttherapy #creatorsie #irishdiyers #sharing_creatives #myvintageinterior #pimpupmypad #pretty_small_spaces #retrohauls #scrollstoppinghome #52shadesofgray #themoderndiy #paintedwall #pinkhome #artistic_dome #myhouseandhome #mybombshellhome #myinteriorsquares #greathomestaketime #interiorswithpersonality #colourwithAT #artfullyhomes

Good Morning 💕 It can be one busy workstation here in the mornings. Porridge on the hob, coffee, toast , lunchboxes more cereal. It’s always a rush against the clock and the most manic time of the day for us. I’ve started to put all their clothes out for the morning and even leave lunchboxes ready for the lunch. It has made things a little easier. I also love our pantry unit with hi gold doors, toaster, coffee machine, microwave all behind closed doors. How does the morning go for you? . . . . . . . . . . #myhouseandhome #irishinteriors #irishhomes #kitchensofinstagram #kitchenware #bifolddoors #sorealhomes #instahomedesign #instahomestyle #interiors2you #myinteriorvibe #whiteandwood #whitekitchencabinets #whitekitchens #pantrydesign #butlerspantry #kitchenstorage #kitcheninspiration #busymomlife #momofthreekids #housebythewhitethorns #calacattagold #nespressomoments #busymornings #myinspiredhouse #beautifulhomesofinstagram #cottagehome #countryliving

Hello 👋🏻 Still here, mostly on Stories. Two weeks till the school holidays and then I might have a tidy house to photograph again. Having spent the day at the coast for Father’s Day and the kitchen remained tidy 💪🏻 (obviously stuff hidden in the sink & drawers 🙈) The kids spoilt Mr W with whiskey and I treated myself to peonies 😬💗 Enjoy your evening xx . .

Morning everyone 🖐 I'd just like to thank you all for your comments and messages and also all your shares yesterday and I'm very grateful for all your support 💛 . . . I'm somtimes asked how to grow an account and there's no secret tbh but you have to love what you're doing. I've always loved taking photos ever since I bought my first camera in my teens. I love styling and creating and diy too. Growing my account was never really a goal and sharing our diy projects to Instagram was something I've loved doing since I set up my account as an interior account in January last year. . . I've never felt in competition with anyone or that it was a race for numbers but for some it is and I ignore negative comments and just keep sharing. It can be daunting for some people to post daily but it's never bothered me in the same way some people dislike diy and I love it 😂 Its different for everyone 🤷 . . . I'm asked why I don't promote products for brands as much as other accounts and its simple, I either don't like the product or I don't have the room. That's it! I understand there are many accounts on IG and its their job and their income to work with brands so it's different for them and we're all here for different reasons 💛 I've always shared small business so I hope to do more in the future to help them out so that's a little about me today 😉 Have a great day everyone 💛 . . . . . . . #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interior4inspo #kitcheninspo #modernrustic #homesofinstagram #interiormilk #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #interior_magasinet #jungalowstyle #urbanjungle #myhousebeautiful #interiorstyling #interior_delux #howwedwell #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #cornerofmyhome #homestyle #myhyggehome #originmagazine #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #nestandthrive #myinterior #homeinspiration #bohointeriors
