How to decorate your home like an Instagram pro!
As Snapchat has bit the metaphorical dust, Instagram is slowly but surely emerging as the Big Daddy of all social media while Facebook and Twitter take the backseat as awkward third cousins. Now the thing with Instagram is that it has this habit of inspiring people to post a glammed up version of a natural phenomenon, and when it comes to interior blogging, sites like dezeen, designmilk, apartmenttherapy and archdaily have set the bar a bit too high. But fear not; it can be easy enough to emulate the insta life style on your own network too. All you've got to do is know your preferred interior palate, implement and then click from just the right angle - and you'll end up with your very pro insta interior click.
CNC cut screens seem to be all the rage these days. The intricately designed cut outs of wood are super trendy and tend to make beautiful screen caps while taking a shot of your home. Just look at the image below – the screen makes the perfect foreground to the swanky mirrored façade of the media wall; a perfect insta shot!
Even when your interior is posh, and the angle of the photograph is just right, there needs to be just the right amount of contrast in between the dull to make your picture stand out. In the image below, the cute solo chair in hot pink and blue makes for the fun factor in this interior, which the overall image captures well.
Try to create a focal point while capturing the essence of an interior. A side shot can only emulate the awesomeness of the interior in just so many ways. Sometimes, there needs to be a central focal point in order to capture the true aesthetic of a symmetrical interior.
Another aspect of capturing the true aesthetic of an interior is to know which angle may allow for the best lighting opacity. In the image below, the soft, dreamy glow of both natural and artificial lighting creates a rather poetic Instagram moment.
A pro Instagram photo will be an allude to all individual characteristics that make up the whole of that specific interior. The image below shows just how each and every detail – be it furniture, lighting or artwork – come together to make the best quality photograph; both attractive and stand out at the same time.
The wide angle is not only a selfie tool – you can use this formula to capture a long scale interior that narrows down towards the end in a nice, picturesque quality.
Green is the officially recognized salient color of 2017, so paying an insta ode to that may be inevitable. You can always capture your very own interior green wall in oblique or straight angles to be a part of that #hashtag.
