Behind the Scenes

I decided to head home-home back to my parents house for the day, I wanted to shoot some content and film a new styling video for my Instagram. My mums house has the BEST natural lighting so I’ve been desperate to fit in time to make a proper visit with my camera. My parents only live about a 40 minute drive from where I am in Southampton now but I’m always so busy in the week I only ever get time for flying visits at the weekends.

I really wanted to share some of these interior shots from filming today. If you did’nt know for the last 7 weeks I’ve been filming speedy 30 second interior styling videos on my Instagram. They actually started because I was cleaning and thought it would be some interesting content to film, I’m so over the moon at how much love they’ve been receiving. More than anything I love creating organic content. I’ve always loved minimal aesthetics but what you might not know is I am complete neat freak. As lame as it sounds I love tidying and cleaning, I find it so therapeutic to organise and rearrange my home. So these videos are just the dream for me to make haha. I’ll probably switch them up soon and try something a little different but right now I just can’t get enough of ’em.

If you’re interested in seeing this styling happen step by step then head on over to my Instagram to watch the video. If you’ve come over from my Instagram to see some stills I hope you liked them! The sofa is the discontinued Karlstad from Ikea. Cushion, throw and table is also from Ikea. The floor lamp is a Grasshopper. All other styling items are my mums and I have absolutely no idea where they’re from, she’s a magpie for good interiors!
