If you have always envied the homes of the famous, it’s time for a makeover! Make your home more chic and Instagrammable — and compete for attention with influencers like Komal Pandey, Sakshi Sindwani, Kritika Khurana, Masoom Minawala, Siddharth Batra. So let’s get started.

The first thing to consider is the Backdrop.  Once you know the answer to that, then you need to figure out the Colour palettes, Themes, and a Layout that will not only make your space aesthetically pleasing but also accessible.

Choose complementary colours instead of heavily contrasting ones. Pastel colours work beautifully! Some pastel colour palettes that you might want to use in your interiors are:

After choosing the colour scheme, make sure to add statement pieces to your home that are eye-catching and will complement your pictures. Wall mirrors, plants, lamps, ceramics, wall hangings are some objects that will help spruce up the ambience.

To keep the clutter out of sight, opt for beautifully organised, closed storage. Whether vertical cupboards, drawers, or cabinets, these items can be saviours when you have to shove the mess away for a perfect snap!

Your furniture can serve as amazing Insta-ready pieces if chosen well. Of course, your priority should be comfort – so choose a set that is comfortable and to your liking. Make sure the colours and textures accentuate your scheme—and stay away from dull ones. Make use of stools, bean bags, and other quirky pieces to add interest to the space.

The last and most important thing is lighting. If you have a beautifully decorated place, but poor lighting, you will still not get your ideal Instagram picture. So make sure you have good lights in the backdrop, highlighting the spaces that will feature on your feed.

The top tip from our faculty at the JS Institute of Design is to have windows that enable a lot of light to enter the house. After all, there is no better lighting than nature’s own!
