With Instagram being such a highlights reel, it’s easy to feel a) like everyone else is living in a palatial palace except you and therefore b) uninspired when it comes to styling your own space, especially if it’s on the smaller side.
Are all-white walls the only way forward? How much furniture is too much? And how best to navigate decorating a small rented property?
Don’t worry, these five ‘grammers have got you.
What they lack in square footage, they certainly make up for in style.
Give them a follow for all the small space interior inspo.
Three kids in a two-bedroom maisonette? It’s safe to say Africa knows a space-saving hack or two, maxing out every inch of her North London rental.
Check out her amazing bunk bed hack and that beautiful boutique bathroom? It’s one of the best on the ‘gram.
If your petite place is a rental, adhering to strict tenancy agreements can feel like a double design blow – but it doesn’t have to be.
Head over to Leila and Fleur’s feed and they’ll show you how to make the most, albeit in a temporary way. Clue: lots of plants and vibrant colour pops.
This tiny terrace is total eye candy – but as an interiors stylist, Jess ‘walks the talk’, starting with her own space.
Her whole home is a masterclass in working with whatever square-footage you’ve got, and truly owning it.
We love all the pretty pastel-hued rooms, but special mention goes to her small-yet-perfectly-formed kitchen.
Who says dark walls make a room feel smaller?
Not interior designer Hannah, who hand-paints the bold murals (from monochromatic stripes through to geometric shapes) in her South London flat.
The result? Added depth and a whole lot of drama.
Stylist Gemma isn’t afraid of using bright colour in her two-bedroom Victorian terrace – in fact, she positively embraces it, creating clever focal points in each room.
We love these bespoke bookshelves, but you’ve also got to peep her compact-yet-amazing kitchen.
