Crittall-style doors, enticing hallways and pops of colour...here are the images you have been loving on our feed

With its daily updates, our Instagram feed has become an addictive source of interiors inspiration. But what were the most popular posts over the past month? Well, here are the 10 images – and trends – that have clearly hit the spot…

Pops of colour

Give doors and window frames a lick of love with an unexpected pop of colour. It’s an easy and effective way to add drama, fun and colour to a space. This house favours the same shade of bold turquoise for its internal doors. Pink ostrich feather lamp optional…

Steel framed doors

These home owners removed old doors and knocked through the wall to create space for a large crittall-style entrance that not only floods the downstairs with light, it also frames the staircase and creates a striking contemporary contrast against the traditional herringbone wood floors and encaustic tiles.

Marble and exposed brick

The smooth curves of Eero Saarinen’s tulip table, the sleek and simple Eames‘ chairs and metallic Tom Dixon pendant light make an eye-catching contrast against the roughness of the exposed brick wall.

Monochrome Tiles

Here, black and white encaustic floor tiles give a simple hallway some added punch. And a painted strip of colour below the dado carries the inky shade from the downstairs up to the landing. Explore the rest of this stunning home.

Old and new

Different eras and styles blend seamlessly in this eclectic but grown-up room. The mid-century furniture and contemporary pendant lights give a modern edge to this period space.

Mix eras and styles to create a space that is coherent yet varied. A soft grey paint, Grey Teal by @littlegreenepaintcompany, tones down the decorative panelling, while mid-century furniture gives a modern edge. The vintage Series 7 chairs and Rondino swivel chairs are from Dagmar. The chandelier is from Ochre, the dining table is bespoke for Barkerdesign by Dean Edmonds. The artwork, left, is by Mark Powell and Hang-Up Gallery, and right, by Peter Blake. 📷 #jamesmerrell Production @mrsmvj Homeowners: Jackie and Francis.

Sultry library

For a gentleman’s club style reading nook, forego the popular white for a more daring shade – like these black shelves that match the adjoining staircase and complement the dark stained chevron parquet. Add velvet chairs for a luxury finish.  Tour the rest of this glamorous home.

Modern Retro

A fifties armchair and sixties pendant shade create a retro vibe without looking dated.

Floating stairs

We love this rustic spin on floating shelves. Rather than opting for a modern glass version, these home owners have opened up their space with a chunky wooden staircase. Natural materials and textures from the rug and tiles to the wood panelling and woven baskets help tie this rustic scheme together. Take a look at the rest of this chic, rustic home.

Kitchen with grandeur

The kitchen is an unexpected place for a sparkling chandelier, especially when wedged between two ultra modern pendant lights. The modern kitchen island and stools help give a modern edge against the parquet floor and original cornicing.

Dreamy dressing room

A parquet floor and showstopper island in a dressing room? Yes please! This dressing room is what dreams are made of. We love the all-Crittall wall divider (similar to the staircase above) which opens up the space and creates a flow of light, plus the to-die-for bespoke cabinetry with gorgeous brass detailing. We want all of it. See the rest of this incredible home.
