Interior Design: 7 Instagram Accounts to Follow Now

Genius doesn’t have to be 99% perspiration, as the old adage famously says. Go for 99% inspiration instead with these seven awesome Instagram accounts focused on fun, attainable interior design. Your thumb will do a lot of scrolling, but that’ll hardly make you work up a sweat.

7 Interior Design Accounts to Follow


This account is a favorite of ours because it’s based right here in New Orleans! Los Angeles transplant Dab shows off his eye for fun colors and funky accents with a subtle mid-century aesthetic. He’s big on gallery walls and indoor plants, two easy ways to incorporate interior design into your space.


Designer Grant Gibon proves that minimalism and eclecticism aren’t mutually exclusive. Use his Instagram account as a visual guide for how you can incorporate knick-knacks into your decor tastefully. 


With a subtle Scandinavian vibe, Kirsten Grove focuses on the essentials: clean lines, fresh colors, and plenty of natural light. Keep an eye out for quirky accents like hints of metallic or playful figurines that enhance her design style.

Look mom!! I have family pictures on the wall! Personalizing your home doesn't necessarily mean filling your mantel with hundreds of family photos. There's a variety of ways to add personalized touches that celebrate your family and friends without being obnoxious. I love treating family pictures like pieces of art. Printing them on canvas takes them from normal to beautiful pieces of art. Another touch that I love and I love giving as gifts is ceramic coasters with personalized pictures printed on them. This is the perfect way to display your favorite travel moments or other memorable moments. One site that can make all of this happen for you is @shutterfly. @Shutterfly customizable Home Decor and Gifts collection presents something for everyone. I've linked them on my profile. Happy Shopping! #shutterfly #ad • • • • • • • #modernhome #interior2you #sodomino #interior2you #simplystyleyourspace #plantsofinstagram #housetour #finditstyleit #homerenovation #interior123 #smallspacesquad #interiorlovers #houseenvy #myhomevibe #sodomino #midcenturymodern #pocketofmyhome #ekkbhome #jungalowstyle #interior444 #newbohemian #decorinspo #sodomino #bedroomdecor #howivintage #ourtruehaven #fixerupperstyle #midcenturymodern #midcenturystyle #midcenturyfurniture

Chances are, you love her show “Fixer Upper.” But HGTV star Joanna Gaines’ pictures are just as fun to browse. Gaines blends rustic elements with feminine details for a country-chic look.


Follow this account for the fun name and the awesome recipes, sprinkled in with design photos that capture designer Melissa Coleman’s clean style.


Pet lovers will enjoy this account from a designer based in upstate New York. Her two pups are a big part of her cozy design style — and they’re definitely allowed on the furniture.


Another NOLA-based account to finish off the list! This fun stationery store in downtown New Orleans has a great Instagram account full of polished pictures sure to inspire. Like @theyellownote, the ladies behind @thegrovestreetpress love their pets, too.
