You don’t have to throw a party to show off your decorating skills. In the age of digital media, you can welcome the world wide web into your home with a simple post.

Use Optimized Lighting

To snap the best photos, make sure you’re utilizing natural light instead of artificial light. For the best results, take your pictures at the golden hours of the day, which is when the sun rises and sets. When decorating your space, create an aesthetically-pleasing area across from a big window. Before dinner or at dawn, snap a photo of your decor for optimal results. Along with a nice sepia tone, you will find unique shadows in the shot.

Create a Comfort Corner

Following the hygge crazy, comfort enthusiasts everywhere began promoting “cozy corners”, areas of the home that are outfitted with plush seating, thick blankets, and a small table for a steaming cup of tea and a good book. First, you will need a comfortable chair that is also pleasing to the eye. Next, invest in a thick knitted blanket that pairs well with the hue of your seat. Finally, cap off the look with soft lighting and scattered candles. Feel free to mess it up a little bit before the shot as it’s supposed to look lived in.

Keep it Clean & Switch up Decor

This goes without saying, but it’s important to declutter and spruce up the apartment before snapping a pic. Inspiration may strike randomly, so it’s vital that you keep Instagrammable areas spick and span at all times. For fresh content, feel free to move decor around. Not only will this diversify your look but it will keep your followers up-to-date on your styling tricks.
