Linens Limited Rising Star Competition 2020: The Shortlist

Each year in the Spring, the team at Linens Limited take a pause from scrolling through our Instagram feeds and hand-select five of our favourite up-and-coming home and interiors Instagram accounts to shortlist for the Rising Star competition. Then, we pass the voting over to you – the public – and the account with the most votes is crowned Linens Limited Rising Star of 2020.

Below, you’ll find our shortlisted accounts for you to peruse, each featuring a different style and approach to their home decor. From monochrome and sleek style to luxurious and decadent decor, you’ll be sure to love at least one of the accounts below.

To be crowned the Winner of the 2020 Linens Limited Competition, and win the £100 Linens Limited prize voucher, these Instagrammers need your vote! Take a look at the profiles below and use the form to vote for your favourite account! As a thank you for voting, you’ll find a 10% discount code at the end of the form that you can redeem at

The Shortlist

Home at the Dornings

Becky’s Instagram account showcases her luxurious home in the countryside, decorated top to bottom with gorgeous white and gold accents. Take a look at her bespoke sofa which we imagine is PERFECT for a duvet day, and neat kitchen cupboards for #pantrygoals.

We LOVE the bathroom and that huge freestanding tub – how indulgent! Find Becky’s home account here: @homeatthedornings


Little Mcr House

Pippa at Little Mcr House shows us how to inject a cool, modern style into a period property. If you’re looking for inspiration on how to feature the original quirks of an old home, take a look at the gorgeous exposed brick chimney breast in the dining room.

Pippa’s recent bathroom and utility room renovation is a perfect example of how to make the most out of the space that you have. We adore the use of colour throughout the house, especially Pippa’s statement bathroom with palm frond wallpaper and a gorgeous green ceiling.

House of 5

Rachel at House of 5 features sleek and sophisticated home decor, beautifully executed in her family home in Manchester. The dark and decadent colour palette used throughout the home focuses on a gorgeous blue-green accent shade against a monochromatic base.

We love the way Rachel uses greenery and natural textiles to create a warm and welcoming home, and we would LOVE to sink into that squishy grey velvet sofa of an evening.

Sash Blessed Home

Sash Blessed Home features Sash and her family in their London flat. We love seeing DIY projects, including Sash’s kitchen counter upcycle – what a transformation!

If we hadn’t seen the instareality highlight, we’d think Sash lives in a show home with those perfectly made beds and expertly ‘chopped’ cushions. Take a closer look at Sash Blessed Home here: @sashblessedhome


DLR home

Michelle’s monochrome family home is a fantastic source of inspiration if you love monochrome and minimal style. We particularly love Michelle’s DIY panelling (see highlights) and hidden wardrobe in her bedroom for a hotel-quality suite.

Michelle’s use of texture and soft furnishings creates a cosy but clean aesthetic, and we love the luxe velvet, leather and wood accents throughout. Find Michelle’s home account here: @DLR_Home
