instagram decor ideas

It is a hard time to be stuck at home – especially now that it’s the spring season. If you’ve joined the millions of people around the globe in a self-quarantine for the past few months, then we’d bet you’re going a little cray-cray by now – and who wouldn’t love a change of scenery from the four walls of your living room.


But here’s good news! You can practice social distancing and reshuffle your view all at the same time. For inspiration, we took to Instagram (as we do every week) to seek out the décor trends that are earning likes and warming hearts. We have picked five décor ideas that will bring all the cheerfulness, warmth, and optimism of spring back into your space, and (hopefully) make your time at home a little brighter.


The best news? All these looks are easy and quite doable. Scroll on…

We are not saying wall art is done with, or one-color painted walls are outdated. But from a series of stunning house tours we’ve been seeing on Instagram & YouTube, it is clear murals are a wall trend that deserves all the attention. A colorful statement wall is one of the quickest and cheapest ways to completely change the look of a room without having to renovate the entire house. And the best part: Painting a wall mural is affordable and totally DIY-able.

All-white interiors might be last-season, but white floor vases like we see in this post from @staybycorisamuel certainly aren’t.


White floor vases are the most flexible accessory that you can add to enhance any décor. They can either be grouped or placed in different parts of the living room, they would look just right in any corner. You can either decorate with faux or real flowers or you can simply leave them empty for some Insta-aesthetics.

Looking for a new coffee table for a small apartment? Get a coffee table as low as this one featured by @nestfeels. It’s modern and chic and will work perfectly in cramped spaces.


Ultralow coffee tables are meant to be used in a very modern aesthetic, and we suggest pairing them with lower-profile seating. Due to their low, sleek lines, they work well in smaller-scale rooms, hence giving them an edge over other coffee tables you usually see.

Coffee table books aren’t just a great way to make your lockdown period go by faster – they are also an affordable décor item that just happens to add more colors to your living space as we can see in this post from @madedotcom.


There’s a reason why coffee table books are loved by so many, especially home decorators and interior design enthusiasts. Books on a coffee table add height to accessories, and the secret technique to styling is to layer in varying heights and texture. A single accessory is lonely, but pop it on top of a book with another item? That is interesting.

One of the easiest ways to brighten up your dark living space to go with the spring season is with some pastel accents like the ones featured by @sweetlittlehouseofmine.


If you’re hesitant to experiment with bold colors, pastels are a great way to introduce color. While pastels are still very vibrant, their neutrality is just enough to change the mood of your space without too much contrast.
