Design-savvy Instagrammers already know: the social media platform is a rich resource of inspiration. Follow these 13 Instagram accounts to turn your Instagram feed into an ever-evolving collection of unique ideas for your space.

 

Adore Magazine (@adoremagazine)

Pinterest-worthy interiors and cleverly curated product roundups abound on the Instagram account for Australian home and lifestyle magazine Adore. If you’re partial to sunny Australian aesthetics and millennial-friendly touches (think soft pinks and brass hardware), this account is for you.

 

Sight Unseen (@_sightunseen_)

Sight Unseen is a must-follow Instagram account (and online magazine) for lovers of contemporary design. With a focus on “what’s new and next in design and the visual arts,” its editors uncover stunning products from independent makers, curate the best launches from leading design fairs, and explore the latest and greatest interior projects. It’s modern through and through.

 

Emly Henderson (@em_henderson)

TV personality, stylist, and celebrity-favouriteinterior designer Emily Henderson’s feed is a bite-sized version of her bible of a style blog. Here you’ll find everything from Pinterest-worthy outdoor movie nights, to eye-popping before-and-after room makeovers, to gallery wall how-tos.

 

Jungalow (@thejungalow)

For the uninitiated, Jungalow is Instagram’s favourite account for bohemian maximalism. A lush grid is filled with images of living spaces that feature mixed patterns, bright hues, and many, many plants—usually all at the same time. It’s a look that founder Justina Blakeney calls “wild, but cozy and homey.” Like what you see? Jungalow regularly features its own line of products in its feed so you can bring some of their vibrancy into your own home.

 

Dabito (@dabito)

If Jungalow is a tad too wild for your tastes, Dabito might be just right. The decor blogger and DIY designer is partial to mixing prints and pigments too, but for a subtler modern-bohemian result. With approachable and aspirational interiors, Dabito’s Instagram feed is a source of actionable inspiration.

 

Athena Calderone (@eyeswoon)

Sophisticated cookware and cool-yet-refined interiors are what await future followers of interior designer-meets-blogger-meets-cookbook author Athena Calderone. Her objects and room arrangements feel decidedly fresh, but never trendy—a design approach to emulate.

Amber Lewis (@amberinteriors)

If breezy Californian interiors are your thing, you’ll love Amber Interiors more than she loves raw wood and Moroccan tassel blankets. Lewis’ style is so coveted she started her own shop (@shoppeamberinteriors), where you can cop her signature boho textiles, plush linens, and abundance of throw pillows.

 

Arent&Pyke In/Out (@arentpyke_inout)

Followers of this Australian interior design studio’s Instagram account might find themselves trying to quell desires to completely overhaul their own living spaces. Gorgeous photography of elegant interiors coupled with sleek furnishings provide the ultimate inspiration for those who prefer a more polished aesthetic.

Design Milk Everyday (@designmilkeveryday)

The sister account to @designmilk, one of the web’s best-read blogs on modern design, Design Milk Everyday is dedicated to modern design for everyday life. Instead of aspirational products, expect to find attainable items that are as functional as they are beautiful. Think terrazzo dog bowls, pastel-hued pipes, and cedar wood food steamers.

Brady Tolbert (@bradytolbert)

Brady Tolbert is a California-based designer, prop stylist, and creative director, which explains why his Instagram is pure design eye candy. Tolbert’s projects range in style from modern creative to refined farmhouse to cool classic—there’s something to inspire every design-savvy grammer.

 

Accidentally Wes Anderson (@accidentallywesanderson)

Accidentally Wes Anderson is an Instagrammer’s homage to the iconic director: a satisfying collage of pastels, painterly views, and all things Pepto pink—this feed was made for stealing the design sensibilities of movies like The Grand Budapest Hotel, Moonrise Kingdom, The Life Aquatic, or The Royal Tenenbaums. For symmetrical stills, quirky signage, and unexpected colour palettes, give this beloved account a follow.

Kelly Wearstler (@kellywearstler)

Follow this interior designer on her journey to find the perfect terrazzo pattern, silky wallpaper, and quilted couch (plus an occasional cameo from her adorable sons). Wearstler is behind some of the most beautiful hotels in the world, like the Proper San Francisco, the Avalon in Beverly Hills, The Four Seasons in Anguilla, and the Proper Hollywood, and following her feed is like taking a master class in modern interiors.

Dezeen (@dezeen)

Geometric wonders. Mirrored hot air balloons. Furniture that puts the ‘fun’ in functional. Dezeen has long been the Instagram world’s go-to resource for all things design, from the big (skyscrapers) to the small (earbuds). Give it a follow for mind-bending ideas and global design inspiration.
