As a lover of interiors and decorating, Instagram is one of my favourite place to go for inspiration and to admire other gorgeous homes, rooms and styles. South Wales and Cardiff are full of characterful cottages and Victorian townhouses that other likeminded interior lovers are renovating and creating beautiful spaces in. Here are just a few of my favourites!
