Given the challenges of the past year or so—hello successive lockdowns and long stints working from home—we're all too familiar with the sight of our own four walls. In fact, it's time to fall back in love with our living space. And TikTok, as ever, is on hand to show us how.
TikTok is the one social media app where 'doom-scrolling' isn't really a thing (unless you've discovered that woman who makes dinner in her toilet). It's a hub of interior design inspo, with a bunch of influencers offering everything from genius storage space hacks and essential DIY tips, to expertise in the latest decoration and interior design trends.
So, whether you're looking to create a perfect gallery wall, wondering how to style a small living room, or simply want a sneak peek at celebrities' extravagant homes, these are the best interior design accounts that TikTok has to offer. Consider your space *elevated*.
