#InteriorInfluence19: 24 Irish Instagrammers with beautiful period homes

By Aoife Valentine Secor 18-10-2019

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. 

There's something a little special about period homes, and we love to see the ways people balance their beautiful old character often with some more modern additions or stylings. Striking that balance is no meat feat so we wanted to recognise those who are showcasing period homes beautifully, sponsored by Roberts.

Our home has it's Autumn coat on and while there will be a major 'Fall' of leaves over the next few weeks, we'll enjoy this gorgeous colour while we can🍁🍁🍁 The Virginia Creeper has gone ballistic this year so it will need to be trimmed back over the Winter while it's dormant👍 (We've been given an old gate so will need to find a place for it... Feargal has left it in a safe place until then - resting against the front railing🤦‍♀️) . . . #ourhomeinautumn #fallcolors #virginiacreeper #irishhome #selfbuild #ourcountryhome #autumninthecountry #victorianstyle #periodstyle #colourmyhome #lifessimplepleasures #myhometrend #irishblogger #modernfarmhouse #sashwindows #autumnvibes #slidingsashwindows #pinkfrontdoor #countrylife #irishhomes #boxhedges #countryliving #irishgarden #moderncountry #gardeninglife

I thought I would reintroduce myself to all my new followers, so hi 👋 I’m Laura and as my day job I work as a fashion Buyer and in my spare time i like to play around with interiors. I lived in london for years, had a stint in Brighton (I was an assistant buyer for greeting cards briefly) and Cardiff and now I’m back in Belfast! It’s funny, but somehow I never imagined myself living back in Northern Ireland after leaving so many years ago, but here I am and I love being home! So things I like to do in my spare time...hmm drink wine (obviously), eat good food, travel and anything creative really! I have a cat called George, who you will see pop up on my grid from time to time and I’ve a husband who works in I.T (fashion and I.T I hear you say...weird mix lol). With my job I’ve travelled all around the world, from India to Portugal to Lake Garda (best footwear show in the world) and I’ve met some amazing people along the way. If you follow me, you will find a combination of my love of fashion and interiors mixed up with my lifestyle passions. My page is here to share, inspire and build a fabulous community of like minded people. Personally I get so much from Instagram (it’s a creative hub of ideas) and I’ve met some pretty cool people, which is an extra bonus I think! So I hope you like what you see and if not...well I can’t please everyone 😜 xx #mycolourfulinterior #crashbangcolour #colourmyhome #interiorinfluence19 #myinteriorstyle #sassyhomestyle #interiormilk #livingetc #luxuryinteriorsonabudget #myhomeforhp #myhomedecor #myhometrend #fafffriday #lifestylebloggers #fashtagfriday #lovetohome #stopandstaredecor #styleitdark #darkwalls #homestyling #housebeautiful #livingroomdecor #livingroom #livingroominspiration #mygorgeousgaff #myhyggehome #bohoismyjam #myeclecticmix #eclecticdecor #eclecticallyspeaking @georggiaburnss @originmagazine

I was asked today to post a pic of my front garden and I have to admit I had to dig deep into the archives to get this one! Even though I only took it last year I had thousands of photos to trawl through so I really need to do a big declutter job on my photos app😬. Anyway @the_northern_vegan_lass this is for you! This is my tiny front garden, not much to it just a bench, some potted plants on gravel. Easier to maintain than grass and way more attractive than paving slabs! Thanks for the prompt 😁🙌🐶🙌 Almost the weekend folks which means weather permitting more work to crack on with in the back garden 😁😆🙌 Tiles from @outhaus_1 Door painted in @benjaminmoore Smoke Stack from @mrcb_paintsandpaper #frontgarden #citygarden #edwardianhouse #edwardianterrace #sodomino #apartmenttherapy #myhouseandhome #irishhomes #irishinteriors #curbappeal #kerbappeal #victorianhouse #victorianterrace #redbrickhouse #colourmyhome #myhomevibe #myhometrend #styledupinterior #stylishhomevibes #postitandsmile #mygorgeousgaff #myhousethismonth #frontdoor #myinteriorstyle #myinteriorstyletoday #dailydecordetail #dailydecordose

Day 15 “Rugs to riches” @storyofmyhome With two little monkeys who either run or bounce around our house we have avoided trip hazards, so are rather low on rugs, but I love textiles and when I spotted this lovely “magic carpet-esque” one in @tkmaxxie I nabbed it and turned a deaf ear to the husbands concern about the boys falling over it-believe me folks, the rug is in a shocking state while the little men are still upwardly mobile - kids:1, rug:0 The riches would be the coffee table who despite spills, kicks, being sat on, stood on and hosting numerous dinosaur battles still looks gorgeous 😍 I don’t think anything will take from it and it will grow with our family (The poor rug is already on the way out, had to switch sides for the photo op due to the numerous spills from the tv viewing side 🙈 found Lego ‘Falcon’ when I moved the coffee table though 👍 so Daniel says “thank you” to @storyofmyhome for making mommy clean up a bit 😉👍😂 ) All the handles have been added over the years, my favourites being the ZaraHome ones picked up on holidays - please come to Ireland @zarahome 🙏🙏🙏 Happey sunny Wednesday evening everybody xxx
