To boldly go: it's all about drama this month...
From dark and dynamic dens to winter whites, it’s all about interiors with impact, judging by the most successful posts on October’s Instagram feed.
Eye-catching geometric tiles are not just for the bathroom and kitchen, they look fab in the hallway too, while opulent wallpapers, bold paint shades and dramatic colour-blocking are bringing impressive architectural features to the fore.
These are the images you’re lusting over most on our Instagram feed this month.
