4 Must Haves for an Instagram Worthy Home

4 Must Haves for an Instagram Worthy Home

Posted by Britt on

At Britt Décor we believe that every single room in your home serves a distinct purpose while also housing prized possessions that hold meaning, spark joy, and reflect your true personality.

But let’s be realistic.

It can be SO overwhelming to even know where to start sometimes. We’ve all been there- we’re beyond excited when getting the keys to our new place, but then quickly turn the key, open the door and feel a sudden sense of dread wash over you as the big open room suddenly feels daunting to decorate and make your own.  It can take months, often years to perfect your personal style and finish each room to your liking. While you embark on the journey to decorate and personalize your space, there are 4 distinct home décor pieces we truly believe are fool proof and can easily yet effectively elevate your space to an Instagram worthy home.

Wool Blankets from Scotland

Your home craves the layered look a good throw blanket can provide to every room.

Our favourite staple blanket that EVERY single space needs are the Recycled Wool Blankets from Scotland. These blankets are STUNNING, brushed for softness, sustainable and machine washable. You can finally invest in a high-quality wool blanket that won’t continue to cost you money with annual dry cleaning bills. They are also woven from recycled wool and recycled mixed fibres, making them the perfect sustainable blanket that’s suitable for any style home. There really isn’t a better blanket as the versatility of these beauties make for the perfect couch, bedroom, outdoor adventure and gift giving companion. The pattens are modern, neutral, classic and most importantly high quality. You’re sure to get DMs and comments from friends and family asking WHERE DID YOU GET THIS BEAUTIFUL BLANKET?!?!

French Kitchen Linens 

Now there’s nothing I can’t stand more than a ratty kitchen towel draped over the rail of an oven. Details matter, first impressions matter, and romanticizing your home with small, beautiful details also goes a long way to bring you joy and make you feel like your home is that much closer to being photo worthy.

Pure linen is a sustainable and durable material that is antimicrobial and designed with durability and practically in mind. Blend that with Parisian style and you have yourself a beautifully made French Linen Kitchen Towel that is sure to inspire special recipes and add timeless character to your kitchen. 

I cannot rave more about our French Linens, they are absolutely rich in colour, classic in their design, woven with durability and honestly worth the splurge. These arnt kitchen towels that will lose their appeal or luxury after several washes. These are made in French since 1866 with attention to detail and longevity. You can rest easy knowing that at the end of a long day, when the dishes are loaded in the washer and you turn out the light, that your French Linen kitchen towel is doing its part to help in daily tasks and elevate your home beautifully. 

Vintage Artwork

Vintage artwork is one of those things that can bring resolution to the oh so daunting “this room is missing something, but I don’t know what” conundrum. Art is such a personal thing and finding pieces that reflect your taste can be daunting. I’ve sat with empty frames on my wall and gallery walls with stock photos for months because I couldn’t commit, or I didn’t know where to start. But with digital artwork you don’t have to worry about committing to a certain style or budget. Downloadable prints are the new age and make finishing your space easy and accessible. Simply purchase, download and print your desired size knowing that if you change your mind or style, you didn’t break the bank or spend hours finding a single high-quality print.

I personally love oil paintings from the 1800-1900s. The colours used and quiet landscapes that were predominately painted make for the perfect neutral palette that provides beautiful interest in any room.  Our Vintage Artwork is affordability priced and of the highest quality, making it easy to print for gallery walls or large statement pieces. With new artwork launching regularly, you’re sure to find the perfect scene for every occasion.

Dried Florals

Dried florals are another finishing piece that breathe life into a room and adds warmth in all the right ways. Don’t get me wrong, I love fresh flowers. But I especially love flowers that look just as beautiful dried as fresh. Que the beautiful hydrangea – my soulmate flower. These are delightfully stunning when fresh but even warmer and full of character as they dry to the perfect bloom for any vintage crock. I also take a liking to wheat varieties, baby’s breath, eucalyptus, and thistle. Basically, anything that could be found off the beaten path of a stone house in the English countryside.  

There’s something to be said about a home that looks lived in and loved. If your home isn’t feeling cozy or warm, try introducing some dried stems and see if it gives you the je ne sais quoi you’ve been longing for.
