We all know it’s easy to fall down an Instagram rabbit hole, one minute you’re ‘just checking’ your feed and the next thing you know an hour has passed by, you’ve mentally redecorated your lounge in ten different genres and you have a wish-list of home accessories and furniture as long as your arm.
Since we opened the doors here at Cabyn we’ve been perusing Instagram on a near daily basis, lingering (probably for far too long) in the squares of our favourite Instagrammer’s homes and plotting how we could possibly move in without being noticed.
There are so very many amazing accounts out there, some with huge followings and others with more humble numbers that are fairly new and growing, like our own. Hard though it is to narrow the number down, we thought we’d share with you some of our favourites, those that mostly feature their own homes, those that have given us inspiration, that always seem to be bang-on with their styling and presentation, not to mention those with the most hilarious captions (we are talking about you Malmo and Moss).
