    It looks like extremely hard work to me. But I enjoy your instagram page, so please keep it up. Very insightful article for anyone considering doing what you do.

      Thanks Sarah! It is hard work, it’s a wonderful job and I feel very lucky but it’s also a massive juggling act! Thanks for reading and commenting xx

    So true Kat! I am juggling so many things at the moment and even when I get gifted a cushion, this can take nearly 2 hours out of my day to get the style and shot right for my feed. One of your most important points is the work it takes to gain a large number of followers and engagement. It’s definitely a full time job and none of us have done it over night. Thank you for writing this! Xx

      Hey Mel 😊 Yes exactly, that’s the part that is the most misunderstood I think – the hours each ‘job’ takes to get right. It’s not just as simple as throwing a cushion down and snapping one photo is it? Glad you enjoyed reading and thanks for your comment xx

    A fantastic article. Everyone expects to be paid for their work and it should be no different for you.
    Brilliant news about your Dad. I love your illustrations and both of your homes

      Thank you Sarah. It is quite a lot of work for usually very little return if I’m honest! You have to love doing it to keep going! Glad you enjoyed reading and thanks for your comments xx

    Such a brilliant article and very insightful. I’m new to Instagram and absolutely love interior design. I follow quite a few accounts to get loads of inspiration which is great but without you guys doing what you do whether it’s gifted or not, I personally would not feel inspired to go out and try new trends, I definitely don’t have the confidence to post videos etc so I admire all of you that do.

      Hi Sharon. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment. I’m glad you feel inspired, I think that’s why most of us do it – I love nothing more than when someone goes out and does similar to what I’ve done because they’ve learned how to do it or seen something they love. Kat xx

    Love how you’ve got the experience from both sides! A good read xx
