And Teesside has plenty of stunning homes to get your creative juices flowing. From colourful period restorations to contemporary new builds, there’s lots of inspo to be had.

Take a scroll through some of our favourite Teesside home accounts you’ll want to follow. Prepare to get house envy!

Lauren and Mark @casaoldcorn 
You can’t beat a home with personality – and Casa Oldcorn has it in spades. Lauren and Mark’s period home has a wealth of character, from the stained-glass entrance to beautiful fireplaces to the stylish panelling.

Emily Jane Lathan @emilyjanelathan 
If vintage is your vibe, Emily Jane Lathan’s 70s bungalow will make you swoon. Emily’s rustic renovation photos make for a delectable grid, with an abundance of warm tones and texture.

Every room of the home has a beautiful flow with a range of neutral shades and pops of greenery. Lots of natural materials and woven furniture bring a distinctly boho feel, creating a relaxed and homely space to get lost in. I adore it.

From vintage to contemporary, Vicky’s new build home is a bright and uplifting space – with plenty of pops of pink to make you smile.

White kitchen featuring a pink tiled backsplash and pink kitchen tap.

Vicky has an outdoor entertaining space and kitchen to die for, which even boasts a pink kitchen tap. And Beau the Beagle pops up on the grid from time to time, which is a bonus!

Rachael confesses she is just a little bit obsessed with green décor – and it’s not hard to see why. Commonly found in nature, green offers a sense of calm and connects us to the outside world.
