Declan Hattie and Michele Brown

Declan Hattie

Declan Hattie shot to social media fame after sharing how him and his partner Jonathan transformed their Larkhall house into their dream home - twice. 

Declan had extra time on his hands after being furloughed as the coronavirus pandemic took over. He decided to use this opportunity to pour his energy into revamping his home before deciding to move and start all over again in 2021. 

Declan and Jonathan launched their home and lifestyle Instagram account in 2020 which quickly amassed a cool 13,000 followers. 

Since then, Declan has been updating followers on unique ideas, DIY tips and luxury home style on their @hattielarkinshome Instagram account featured in Daily Record, Sunday Post, Sunday Mail and ITV. 

In January 2024, Hattie Larkins Home was named one to watch by Homes & Interiors Magazine Scotland in their Favourite Scottish Interior Accounts 2024. 

Leaving behind a ten-year career within the motor industry, Declan has combined a passion for interiors and social media and launched his own business - Hat&Tie Social in summer 2023, this is where he was introduced to Michele, who became the agency’s first client by onboarding Interiors Forty-Five and managing their social media platforms.
