Curves have entered homes by way of curved kitchens and Ligne Rosset’s curvaceous Togo sofa, while walls remain mostly light and crisp. Mural-style tiled walls step into bathrooms, creating a more traditional look compared to the ever popular raw concrete look. Studio Ashby’s design for a children’s room proved a big hit, with stylish kids storage and a padded, velvet upholstered alcove nook. And finally, we’re transported to an Ibiza-style kitchen, taking us to sunnier climes.
Here are the ten best Instagram interiors from the month of June, in descending order…
1. Pink Corduroy

3. BANQUETTE BENCH
We love a banquette bench, and clearly you do too. How chic and elegant is this Parisian style breakfast nook? Not a bad spot to perch with a croissant in the mornings.
