Most of you that follow along to the blog, most probably have Instagram.  I love instagram, it’s so visual and the community is lovely, encouraging and engaging.  Today I thought I share a few of my tips on how to get the best Instagram pictures.  With over 20.3 K followers, it’s great to know that I can still keep everyone interested with my daily musings.  So here’s a few tips for you.

Use a white background using a side table or coffee table.  That way your subject will stand out and speak for itself.


Crispy white bed sheets and linen always makes a statement.  I use white linen and add pops of colour with throws and pillowcases as well as cushions to make my bedroom pictures stand out.



Colour and patterned paper can add interest to your photos. Add at least one or two objects that add a little interest to your pictures.  Here I have added Autumn leaves and lemons that add colour and texture.



Add marble if you have it to your pictures.  Marble adds another dimension to your background and if you are lucky enough to be able to use it in your pictures I am sure it will be a popular post.



Add greenery to your pictures, whether it be flowers or plants.  Nature always brings another element to your pictures making them feel alive and lived in.


Stick to a theme so the picture tells a story.  This works particularly well with flat lay pictures.  When all the items belong together to tell a story you will find you will have a lot more engagement from followers.


Are you on Instagram or do you prefer Facebook and reading blogs?

Have fun taking your pictures.
