After a very busy month of visits to biggest Interior Design events in London and looking to all the exciting things that Plantation Shutters has yet to see, we’re back for our top ten Instagram accounts to follow this month for all your inspirational needs.
We run through Instagram every month to find the brightest and best design accounts, whether that’s architecture, interior design, art or fashion. If we think it beautiful, we’ll have it here on this list.
First, on our list are the multitalented people at Excell Building. The London based company specialising in refurbishment and architectural design who work on entire houses from the loft to the basement. The luxury finishes on their work makes them a firm in high demand at the moment. We love their feed for the progress it shows with their projects. A personal favourite is their work on that kitchen in Fulham.
Next for our list is the structural engineering design practice whose work stands tall above many others. Consibee is based in London, Norwich and Cambridge yet their work spans continents, styles and purposes from infrastructure to day centres and hospital projects. With stunning, modern constructions that fit perfectly in city landscapes while not coming across as cold and uninviting as some do but vibrant and colourful. We especially love their work on the conversion of Spiller’s Mill, next to Cambridge station when they partnered up with Pollard Thomas Edwards.
Now we have a Spaniard on our list, probably the first-ever. Though, with that, he does live in Norfolk. Carlos Garcia Interiors, headed up by the man himself, works out of both London and Norfolk with his traditional rural design approach with small influences of modern design pieces of furniture or colour schemes that are a part of the process. This makes his work very accessible and in demand from those in rural and city area.
Next, we have an architectural firm who are based quite literally around the corner from us, just off Battersea Park. Dunn Architects are an award-winning architecture firm with an international reputation for innovative and large scale designs for their structures whether residential or commercial. Their feed shows off their philosophy when it comes to approaching their work and the office life similar to a family complete with a dog, Tonto. We love seeing the effortless transition from a city to a rural setting when it comes to the variance of their work on a national or international scale such as their ‘Cabin in the woods’ project and the Multaqa Hotel in Dubai.
Next on our list is a familiar name or one that should be as he won the highest honour at the annual AMARA interior blog awards this year and we covered his win in one of the previous blogs this month. Malcolm Begg, who is in charge of the fabulous Design 69, won the Blogger’s Choice award, is a self-confessed interior design addict whose work on his blog, as well as his Instagram covers his progress in his own home as well as the many many insights he has into other existing projects and the constantly changing trends of the design world. We love his account because of his attention to detail that backs up the chosen schemes of the various rooms he works in. This usually comes in the form of a picture of a plant but it always helps tie the room up in a neat bow that would feel vacant with these inclusions. Personal loves of ours are the living rooms pictures that pop up across the account constantly. Certainly, one to watch.
Now, we have Chambers Furniture, British designers of bespoke kitchens, bedrooms and home offices who we fell in love with for their variety of approaches to projects that wholly cater to their client's needs. Personal love is the home office made from calming Burr Oak with white tops which provided their client with the perfect working environment.
