Whether you’re a perpetual decorator or simply in need of getting your house in order, Instagram can provide endless interior inspiration—and we’ve got a list of must-follows. Whether your style is bohemian, quirky, modern or classic, there’s plenty of inspo to go around. —Madison Hope Veitch
chrissy of harlowe james (@_harlowejames). Ever wondered what it be like to live in Sausalito, California, in a bright and airy apartment full of beautiful, vintage and unique objects? Us, too. Chrissy makes us feel like we can relate to a tiny slice of that and, while her Instagram feed and stories are gorgeous, her blog is a great resource for all things design. She even posts monthly playlists!
GUESS WHAT? I cooked an entire #Thanksgiving feast for twelve ALL BY MYSELF. Just kidding, no I didn’t. I just tricked everyone into thinking I did by pre-ordering a ready-made Thanksgiving meal from @WholeFoods and serving the whole thing on glamorous serving ware. This is definitely the holiday hack America needs right now. Instead of FREAKING OUT about getting the Thanksgiving feast on the table in time while your entire family sits there DOING ABSOLUTLEY NOTHING, why not just let someone else do it? The beautiful holiday meals from Whole Foods Market are ready to heat-and-serve. IT’S THAT EASY! I love holidays and all the food and togetherness they represent, but sometimes you just don’t have time to spend days and days prepping food for them. The high-quality, chef-inspired meals (with many organic and special diet options) let you serve a beautiful, fresh meal that will trick everyone around the dinner table into thinking you cooked them and totally know what you’re doing. EVERYBODY WINS! Check out the delicious dishes I chose to serve the Ultimate Feast for 12-14 in my stories today and order your meal online now while supplies last (link-in-profile to their super simple ordering system). It’s SUPER EASY. Okay bye! Photo @zekeruelas #sponsored #HowIThanksgiving #MakesMeWhole #WholeFoodsMarket
orlando soria (@mrorlandosoria). There's not enough we can say about Orlando. We love him. He’ll often remind us that his name is pronounced “Or-Lahn-do,” which makes a lot more sense when we get to see the occasional cameo of Or-mom-do (his actual mom; she’s the best). His stories are unparallelled and often having us laughing out loud (not just typing “lol”) with a loud exhale. With a unique sense of style, he's worked with and for so many of the greats: a design partner to Emily Henderson, the creative director for HomePolish ... and now his own boss, creating many a magical space. He is a must-follow (you can thank us later!).
Fifteen things I’ve learnt from being an Interior Designer. On my blog www.sixthingsblog.com (link in profile lads). Does not include the time I learnt that a ginormous 20 ft fiddle leaf fig tree does not fit in a tiny car or the time I learnt that doing a 16 hour furniture install immediately after getting off a long haul flight from Bali is no fun.

rebecca wakefield (@rebecca.wakefield). Rebecca’s feed showcases a wide range of expertise, as she would say, “Designer. Stylist. Londoner. Serial home renovator. Blogger. Mum. Not in that order.” With a background in architecture, she designs amazing spaces that don’t feel pretentious and truly work. She keeps it real in her captions and her stories, and it’s a nice juxtaposition of what we see sometimes in the interior world of flawless spaces—we all know that life can be messy. Plus, who doesn’t love a british accent?

anissa of house seven design (@housesevendesign). This husband-and-wife design team can really do no wrong. They specialize in creating warm, minimal and inviting spaces—and they do it well. With three kids we're not sure how they find the time to pump out such stylish content, but they do! Don’t be surprised if you feel ready to pack up and move right into their home or one of their projects after scrolling through their feed—we know we definitely did!
Many of you have recently joined us on here so we thought an introduction (and re-introduction to some) might be in order! . We’re Sacha and Melissa Leclair, a husband and wife duo from Ottawa, Canada! We have a 2 year old daughter, a 3 year old son and a cat named Mika. We got into design after buying and decorating our first home as newlyweds. After posting photos of our work online, our friends started asking us to help with their places and boom, Leclair Decor was born. We kept other jobs for several years before making the leap to do this full time. We knew it was time when we got our first big contract to design 9 model homes with local home builder @Richcraft . Next thing we knew we were hiring our first employee, and then our second and now we’ve lost count, ha! But seriously, Leclair Decor is much more than a duo these days. We’re so proud and thankful to have an amazingly talented and dedicated team! Our style has evolved over the years from woodsy modern to what we now like to call warm modern. We love to mix materials, textures and clean lines to create inviting, sophisticated yet livable interiors! Our services have also evolved. We now focus on complete home remodel and furnishing projects and new builds. Just over 3 years ago we started @ldshoppe as a side project from our spare bedroom. It took a lot of work, but thanks to our amazing clients, this baby has grown so much! Last year we opened a modest showroom inside our design studio. We wanted to test the brick and mortar waters before fully jumping in. After a few months we really got a feeling that there was a demand in our city and it made us confident to search for larger store. An opportunity came up this summer at Trainyards that we couldn’t pass up! We’ve always thought this would be the perfect place for us. It’s centrally located, easily accessible and it’s already known as a furniture store hub. This Saturday we open our doors and guys, it feels SURREAL! . In our spare time we love to stay fit, hike, ski, swim, travel and of course spend time with our little ones!Thanks for following along on this journey with us! Now tell us about yourselves!! We love to hear from you! ✌🏻
le clair decor (@leclairdecor). This Canadian couple has built their business by consistently creating inspiring spaces and curating beautifully designed pieces for all of their projects. Recently they opened up their own shop (@ldshoppe) full of so many of the lust-worthy things you see on their page. Bonus, they ship from and within Canada. That always feels like a treat!
sarah of room for tuesday (@roomfortuesday). While we only just discovered Sarah’s account a few months ago, we’ve truly loved following along with her ever since! She is so positive and energetic on her stories, and she has such a unique style (a modern twist on traditional though, to be fair, we haven’t asked her what she’d say about that!). She’s a great source of inspiration if you love a traditional look but aren't sure how to appropriate it in a modern way. Sarah and her hubby just moved into a new home after completely gutting and renovating their previous one (it was a stunner!) and are on their way to do the same with this abode. Her blog has a tonne of information; DIYs, before-and-afters, design plans and video tutorials. If you’re looking to tackle a project, love dogs (she’s got two cute ones!) or need some inspo, we highly recommend checking out Sarah’s channels.
For a long time, I had a dream of being able to host friends and family properly in our home. To have a space that could be a sweet baking spot with my boy or a place where good friends could hang about with drinks in hand. To have that perfect island that everyone always finds themselves standing around...no matter the amount of comfy chairs in close proximity!!! Sure, our kitchen is pretty but good design is so much more than that. It’s everything that changes in our lives as a result. It’s new habits, feelings, moments, memories ❤️ . . . . 📸 @brandingbytraceyjazmin #makehomeyours #apartmenttherapy #sodomino #mycovetedhome #simplystyleyourspace #bhghome #pocketofmyhome #theeverygirlathome #howwedwell #inmydomaine #smmakelifebeautiful #bhgstylemaker #everydayIBT #cljsquad #realhomesofinstagram #mySMPhome #scandinaviandesign #ourtruehaven #littleaccountlove #darlinghome #atmine #smallspacesquad #simplechristmasdecor #theeverygirlholiday #theeverymomathome #holidaylove #jackryan #kitchendesign #kitchenisland
kristina lynne (@bykristinalynne). Hailing from Edmonton, Kristina is a founder and interior designer at Kresswell Interiors—but really, she does it all. From running her own Instagram account and blog, she is also a contributor for The Everygirl, a house-flipper and a mom! Her home and her projects feel kind and warm and we can’t help but swoon each time she posts a new pic.
natalie chong (@lovenataliechong). You may recognize this Torontonian from Marlyn Dennis (she’s frequently on her show as a design expert) but, if she’s new to you, Natalie is definitely one to keep an eye on. She’s the founder/principal of Nest Design Studio, which she established in 2009 with one mission: to design for the client and not the designer. Her Instagram doesn’t just include her client projects but also work she does on her own home. We love keeping tabs on her fabulously stylish life!
2018 will go down as one of the best years yet. Feeling so grateful for the memories, the projects, the new friends, the old friends, the challenges and all the growth. My heart is so full and I can't wait for everything that 2019 has to offer. Love you all and Happy New Year.
brady tolbert (@bradytolbert). It’s a total delight to follow along with Brady's projects and work-life. He recently left his position as CD for Emily Henderson and is now doing the same for Bobby Berk (the interior designer from Queer Eye!). You know when someone just seems like a really nice, down-to-earth, good person? That’s Brady. His personal style is flawless—just take a peek at his home!—but his creative journey and career are also an inspiring thing to keep tabs on.
Talk to me about some of your design project and goals for the year!! Dying to know about the spaces you’d most like to tackle. For me personally, I’d like to pull together a play room for my little ones (we moved them into the same bedroom last year when they were both finally big enough for toddler beds... SO FUN). Professionally, I’m dying to get my hands on a retail space or creative studio. What about you? 🌙 @breemccoolphoto
ashley of scout modern (@scout.modern). If you were to mix the very best of bohemian, modern and vintage with a touch of glam, you’d find Scout Modern. Founder Ashley and her adorable family live in L.A., which makes total sense since you can literally feel the sunshine in every one of her spaces. Naturally, she’s been featured just about everywhere under the sun: Apartment Therapy, Rue Daily, Domino Mag, Lonny, HGTV and more, and we totally understand why. Her feed is a source of “happy”—give it a visit!
