Over to Los Angeles now where interior stylist Amy Kim has been busy bringing her family home to life. Her account is the perfect example of how you can make a simple modern space really sing. Amy’s space feels warm and utterly personal with carefully considered purchases that are bought to last.

Working with a natural tonal palette, personality comes through with a mix-and-match of intriguing design-led shapes and beautiful lights and lamps. It’s the monochrome accents throughout her home that make the whole space feel considered, pulled together cool but with an effortless LA edge.

So if you’re looking to add some LA minimalism and luxury home décor into your modern home, hit that follow button.

The Inspired Room

Melissa Michaels, author of A Lovely Life, lives in a glorious family home full of marshmallow-soft sofas, a handful of dogs (the dream), fireplaces, painted wood panels, soft blue-hues and candlelight. It’s our go-to account for modern family home design ideas, with thoughtful sentiments behind each post and each interior design project.

Melissa credits the art of ‘pottering’ around your home and taking joy in the things that you already own as calming therapy. She makes you want to tidy up the sideboard / dresser / shelf and style it with your most prized possessions – whatever your personal preferences are aesthetically.

This account is about finding joy in the everyday, every season. And we can all do with a bit of that.
