“In The Spotlight” –
Natalie from @Silverspoonhome
Here is my very first “In The Spotlight – Insta Stylist” , I thought I would start of with Natalie from @silverspoonhome as I have been connected with her lovely Instagram account from quite early on when I started my account. I love her styling and she regularly tags me in her beautiful images for me to share to inspire others. It has been so nice to get to know her and her account through these questions I have asked her to answer. I am sure you will enjoying getting tips and inspiration through her answers.
Tell me about how your Account came about?
Silver Spoon originally started three years ago as an online homewares store. But when we moved from Perth to the Gold Coast and back to Perth again, all in 8 months, it was an easy decision to close it. Plus it gave me a chance to focus on what I really love – styling my home and supporting small businesses.
What do you love most about styling?
When it comes to styling I love to break the rules. I like to mix textures, clash colours, add luxe with less – all with a liberal splash of greenery. I invest in key pieces such as my coffee table, buy my unique decor items from other Instagram businesses and purchase key trending pieces from large retailers such as Kmart. It doesn’t have to make sense to anyone else – as long as you love it!
What is your colour palate you love to use at present?
My colour palette consists of neutrals, lots of greenery and pops of my summer colour obsession – mustard.
What camera do you use to take your beautiful images with?
I like to keep it simple and uncomplicated – so I rely on my LG G4.
What are your favorite apps you use?
Snapseed is my friend. Most photos I post have the brightness adjusted, exposure increased and selected areas increased in contrast. It is an easy to use app and best of all – it’s free!
What do you love most about having your account?
The Instagram community! Through Instagram I have met so many fantastic and inspiring people, watched many small accounts grow to household names and developed my own sense of style.
What are 3 other small businesses do you love and support?
Instagram has exposed me to so many talented creatives. My current obsessions include the quirky resin animals from @whitemoosedesign; the gorgeous boho decor from @laneandco_decor; and the stunning steel art from @lisasarahsteeldesign. And because I like to break the rules – the gorgeous green prints from @littlebrickhome.
Name 3 of your favorite Instagram Accounts you love to follow?
I am constantly inspired by the stunning styling and pics from Tarina @oh.eight.oh.none; @carlaypage is textural and plant nirvana; and I am living my country life dreams through the little white home of @thesimplerevival.
What else do you do for fun?
If you have seen my insta stories – you know I love nothing more than strolling through hand made markets and shopping at my local nurseries.
I really hope you enjoyed getting to know Natalie from @Silverspoonhome as much as I did. Feel free to pop over to check out more of her beautiful styling on her Instagram account.
