In today’s blog post, I’m taking you on a virtual tour of my favourite Instagram gardens. These are my go to accounts for garden inspiration and I think you’ll understand why!
If you dream of a picture perfect garden, then look no further. These accounts will leave your head buzzing with ideas for your own garden. I promise!
Tiny & the House
One of my favourite instagram accounts to follow is @tinyandthehouse and the woman behind the account, is London based instagrammer and shoe designer, Jacqueline.
Jacqueline’s keen eye for design is reflected in every corner of her home. From her garden framing crittal windows, to her brightly coloured ballustrades, excellent taste in wall art, and quirky collection of kokeshi dolls. Everything in her home is styled beautifully and reads as a cosy family home, with a unique and cool edge.
Anyway, enough flattery, let’s go on a little tour of the garden!
The garden is looked onto by the afore mentioned crittal windows. I love how she’s painted the lower half of their exterior walls white, it’s an idea I would love to steal for our home. Our bricks are a very orange red, that desperately want to paint over, but sadly, the husband is having none of it. What does he know?! Eh?
I’m incredibly jealous of gardens with a good garden wall and love how Jacqueline has trained plant’s across theirs. Her fence panels on the other side of the garden are painted a dark grey/black, which looks fantastic with pops of green planting.
Jacqueline shares lots of garden inspiration and plant care tip on her Instagram stories. If you’re keen to get your garden looking shipshape during the last few weeks of the summer, then I highly recommend you give her a follow.
Next up for garden inspiration, is Theresa Gromski. Theresa’s garden has an indoors outdoors feel, that I love. Her garden has an eclectic, bohemian feel, that reminds me a lot of Abigail Ahern’s aesthetic. Theresa and her husband made the seating themselves, as well as the scaffold board decking, which is incredibly clever and looks amazing!
I love how Theresa has filled her garden with lanterns, candles, rugs, cushions and lighting, which make the space feel cosy and inviting. I also love how she introduced texture planting, which creates a feeling of softness.
I know that Theresa receives lots of questions from people concerned for the welfare of her cushions, but rest assured that they’re taken indoors when it rains!
Personally, I love cushions in the garden, because if there’s one thing that puts me off spending time relaxing outdoors, it’s that garden furniture isn’t always comfortable!
Last, but not least, is Rebecca, known as rvk_loves on Instagram, with her quintessentially English country garden. I love how she’s flanked her summer house with white painted panels as well as the rose lined pathway leading to it.
I imagine a garden as beautifully planted as this takes a reasonable amount of upkeep, but it’s definitely worth it! It makes me want to fill ours with lots of pink roses too!
Accounts like these are what I love about Instagram, it’s a brilliant place to draw inspiration from!
