Sophie Hinchliffe — aka Mrs Hinch — has taken Instagram by storm with her series of low-cost cleaning hacks that have turned homes the length and breadth of the country from drab to fab.
Other cleaning sensations: Do you use one (or all) of the internet’s favourite cleaning products in your home?
And with a new book just released entitled Hinch Yourself Happy we’re thinking she could very well become the Marie Kondo of the cleaning world. But the question on everyone’s lips is when she downs her duster for the day does she really practise what she preaches in her own home?
We take a look inside to find out…
A palette of grey and white gives this living room a clean and contemporary feel, while cosy touches come in the form of a textured rug, chunky knit throw and a smattering of candles.
Flocked wallpaper, a statement velvet pin cushion headboard, a pile up of decorative cushions and matching side table displays — what’s not to love about this amazing boudoir?
A cracker of a kitchen
The units may and counter top may be neutral, but those accessories definitely aren’t. We would never have dreamed of putting a huge vase of flowers on the induction hob when not in use and we’re also in love with those little hanging pots of greenery and freestanding country-style side board with handy wicker storage baskets.
Space savvy in the dining room
Struggling to find space to fit in a four-person dining table? Take a tip from Mrs Hinch and squeeze it into your bay window recess.
Shelving with style
Why have ordinary floating shelves when you can re-purpose old fruit crates to stylish effect? The oversized mason jar filled with foliage is a nice twist on the terrarium trend too.
A huge no.5 Chanel perfume bottle filled with flowers, incense sticks perched in a Buddha ornament and THAT futuristic wall clock — Mrs Hinch has just proved that you can work interiors magic in even the most unassuming of spaces.
Quote decals are a great way to liven up plain bathroom walls, and they’ll also give you something to ponder on as you take a soak.
With her packed schedule it’s no wonder Mrs Hinch has created a fuss-free garden with a section of paving stones, border of grass and some potted plants and trellising for interest.
And this a low-key entertainment/relaxation space is a lovely bonus too.
