Not only has Laura a great eye for decor and colour, she is also brilliant at explaining the thinking behind her process. Which means that as well as drooling over stunning pictures of exquisite homes, you can also pick up some great interior tips too....…

We want to live here: Emilie Jacob of Stella and the Stars’ Dubai home

I stumbled across Emilie Jacob's (@StellaandtheStars) gorgeous home on Instagram and it was love at first sight. At first, I lusted after her East London pad, but then, when she moved to Dubai a year ago with her husband Pete and 3-year-old daughter Stella, it was all about her new desert retreat. Her chic, contemporary style works just as well in rainy England as it does in sunny Dubai and there is plenty here to steal (I mean *inspire*). From a gorgeous gallery wall to a perfect pink desk area, this cool, lovely, creative French blogger is one brilliant interiors fiend.....…

We want to live here: a beautiful family home in South London

Love interiors? Good, so do we. And even better, we know someone who is not just brilliant at putting together a beautiful home, but is also willing to share her secrets. Step forward Laura Stephens, Interior Designer, colour-whizz and all-round amazing decor guru. We particularly wanted to share this, her latest project in South London, because it is a brilliant example of how you can have a stylish, clever home and have children (yes, it really, it IS possible! *although maybe not in my house* she whispers quietly). Ready to take a look? The children's bedroom are particularly lovely...…

We want to live here: Tula Goodwin’s colourful Singapore home

Colour is always a good idea, especially when it comes to decorating. And, especially when it comes to pink. Which is why my heart fluttered a little when I saw pictures of Tula Goodwin's beautiful Singapore home. Tula, who lives in an Peranakan house with her husband Henry and 3 daughters also loves colour, "especially pink" and wanted her home to "be cosy and homely." With a beautiful mix of gorgeous fabrics, colonial-style furnishings and bright pops of colour, Tula's home is just the thing to swoon over on a grey old November day...…

We want to live here: Natalie Cardew of Wonder & Rah’s gorgeous London home

Forget magazines, Instagram is my go-to destination for shopping inspiration. From fashion to home to those things that you never knew you needed until you saw them and then KAPOW you have to have them NOW - it's a brilliant showcase for style. It's where I've made a number of great finds including, most recently, Wonder & Rah, a gorgeous brand selling original design-orientated wall art for children's rooms by the very talented Natalie Cardew. Of course, as soon as I saw the pictures of the home she shares with husband Chris, son Leo (4), daughter Robyn (2) and cats Biffy and Whitney, I knew we had to feature it and ask her more about her decorative style and how she got Wonder & Rah off the ground...…

Rather unsurprisingly for someone with such a good eye, Marielle's home is just as beautiful.
