Guest Blogger: Alina Isaev’s interior tips

For our latest home post we’ve managed to get hold of Alina Isaev of The Fairytale Pretty Picture, the winner of the Best Interiors Blog Award at Cosmopolitan’s Blog Awards 2014.

We’ve asked her about her fabulous blog and she’s kindly given us some top interior tips along the way. Read on for Alina’s advice on styling your own space and her favourite winter interior trend this year.

Top Interior Tip:

Immediately after winning the amazing Cosmo Award of Best Interiors Blog last week, I was asked what my top tip was for a fabulous interior. My answer is always the same; I believe that the space means nothing unless it represents your personality, so sprinkle your style onto everything that you do.


Don’t be afraid to be yourself. If you like bold colours then brighten up your space with vibrant feature walls or add a pop of colour here and there for a more subtle yet fun look. If you’re a fan of more sophisticated, soothing scenes on the other hand, then remember that plain is not boring – in fact I am in love with neutral design schemes and Scandinavian interiors where the ‘all -white scene’ makes a modern statement.

Which style have you gone for this season?

My Favourite Current Interior Trend:

I simply adore winter interiors, from woodland creatures dotted around the room to tactile textures that make the home a heavenly hub for hibernation.


My particular favourite pieces from Debenhams are the Abigail Ahern /EDITION polar bear book stands; it’s as if they’ve walked out from a fairytale story page straight onto my shelf! They’re cute, they’re adorable and they’re certainly conversation starters.


There’s also nothing better than curling up in a mountain of cushions once the weather breaks (and it has completely broken!) So I’m always drawn to adding soft materials to my interior design. From faux fur to knitted covers, these home decorations create constant cosiness. I tend to scatter them all over my settee and bed, and I can never get enough of them!
