Our Favourite Instagrammers

This week, our favourite instagrammer is Helen Powell, the brains behind @designhunter_uk! An award winning lifestyle and design blogger, Helen's feed will get your creativity flowing as you imagine your dream interiors and all the new places you need to explore!

It was lovely to speak to Helen, to hear what inspires her and all the new instgrammers we should be following. Read all below...

Describe your style in 5 words.

Understated, modern, minimal, timeless, classic.


What are the tools you use to create your feed?

I shoot on my iPhone 6 or Canon EOS 6D and edit my images in VSCO cam.


Who or what inspires you?

Architectural details, gallery visits, wild and remote places, quiet moments, nature, timeless design.


If you had an extra hour in the day what would you do?

Play tennis or go for a swim. Exercise helps me to disconnect from work and if I’m on the tennis court or in the pool it’s probably the only time during the day when I’m not within arm’s length of my inbox and social media accounts!


What is your personal motto?

Always try to be authentic.


Who else should we follow on Instagram? Who’s your top three?

Photographer @indiahobson – her beautifully curated feed is full of natural colours and everyday beauty. Also @hegeinfrance for stunning interior styling with a minimal Scandi aesthetic and @thefoodiebugle for her tales of a shopkeeper’s life in Bath.


Thank you so much Helen, we really love your motto, one we should all try to follow! Explore Helen's feed at @designhunter_uk for inspiring and beautiful imagery and visit her blog here, too!
