We know how much you all love seeing inside real homes and seeing how they are decorated.  Sam and I are working hard to bring you more real home room tours, but today I wanted to share some of my favourite real homes of instagram.  If you like beautiful homes with inspiring decor, have a look at these:


real homes of instagram claire

This photo takes my breath away – the black turned leg table, the mirrors, the silver urn filled with foliage, and the antique typewriter and camera.  Claire is a writer for Country Style magazine and lives on a cattle property in rural Queensland.  Her instagram account is @clairemactaggart


real homes of instagram the old manse

This is the back of The Old Manse.  The inside is just as beautiful, a stone fireplace, claw-foot bath, and you won’t believe the kitchen.  Lucie lives in The Old Manse on the NSW south coast.  Her instagram account is @lifeintheoldmanse


real homes of instagram urban farmhouse

Alex has built a modern farmhouse in the Southern Highlands of NSW.  The kitchen is divine and there’s more to come.  Alex’s instagram account is @urban_farmhouse_build 


real homes of instagram treechangecottage

If you love all things rustic and vintage, you’ll love the photos Katy takes of her country life in her 100 year old farmhouse in Queensland.  She calls her house run-down but I think it’s filled with charm and character.  Katy’s instagram account is @treechangecottage


real homes of instagram cane cutterscottage

For photos of lush palms and casual tropical style, check out Katie’s feed from Cane Cutters Cottage.  Katie lives in a worker’s cottage in far north Queensland.  You will find plenty of coastal and tropical inspiration here.  Katie’s instagram account is @canecutters.cottage


real homes of instagram myhumblehome

Janet lives in her humble home in Perth.  Her home is clean and fresh, in a mix of Hamptons and Island style, with plenty of blue and white chinoiserie thrown in.  Janet’s instagram account is @myhumblehome


real homes of instagram darbystar

Suzi is a buy mother of 4 who lives in her modern farmhouse home in South Australia.  Her and her husband have just added these beautiful shiplap walls to their kitchen.  See more of Suzi’s charming style at @darbystar


real homes of instagram

Have you ever seen such a beautiful laundry?  This is the home of Melinda Hartwright in the Southern Highlands, NSW.  Yes she is an interior designer but this is her real home that she’s just renovated and has done a superb job.  See Melinda’s feed at @melindahartwrightinteriors 


real homes of instagram Bexley

Here’s one to watch.  Jodie is an interior stylist, and her husband runs a building company, and together they have lovingly restored this majestic Queenslander in Brisbane.  They are only weeks away from moving in and I can’t wait to see how it all comes together.  Jodie’s instagram account is @bexleyandmore

I hope you enjoyed discovering some of the real houses of instagram in Australia.  Please take some time to visit them and say hello.  You can also say hi to us @diydecorator or inside our real homes with Kylie @my_whitehouse and Sam @styleandhome.
