Insta Inspo: Nicky at @the_rocco_


Mum of two Nicky Stedman lives in South West London with her husband, son Rocco and newborn baby daughter Olivia

What prompted you to start your Instagram profile? 

My sister Alex encouraged me – her Instagram profile @thefrugality is amazing, I’m very proud of her. It’s a good way to capture memories, too. I love scrolling back and seeing how much Rocco has changed.

You share the many lovely corners of your home – do you have a passion for interiors? 

I’ve always loved interiors, and Instagram inspires me a lot. I’m very into white, I dream of a really minimal home one day but I’m not sure that will ever happen!

Where do you get your inspiration from?

I love Hay, The White Company for bedding, H&M Home, and I’m an Ikea addict. Plus @scoutandcokids, @bon_tot and @scandiminis are all amazing for kids’ clothes and accessories.

Who else do you follow on Instagram? 

I love so many; @dhowelldesigns for her stunning white home, @coral.atkinson for her creative photography and @_shelleyloves has the kind of family life I hope we will have one day.

What is the key to taking a good photo?

I admit to removing any clutter, and though I usually take snaps on my iPhone, I have recently started using my Olympus PEN E-PL8, and it makes such a difference.

How’s the new nursery coming along for your impending arrival?

She will have Rocco’s old nursery, so it’s back to all-white walls. I’ve added a Numero 74 powder pink canopy over the cot and lots of natural baskets and wooden shelving. I’m loving the girly touches [Baby Olivia was born in mid-December].
