8 Must-Follow Instagram Accounts To Inspire Your Next Decor Makeover
We’re all spending more time on our phones than we probably should, so while you’re there, why not get some fresh inspiration for your next makeover project?
We believe that not all scrolling is created equal, which is why we created this list of some of the best home design accounts on Instagram—and a few hints on where to snag their one-of-a-kind decor.
From modern interior design to funky “jungalow” looks, this list has a little something for every style. So go ahead—take a look and dive into the world of Instagram’s best and brightest design accounts.
By now you’re probably familiar with jungalow style—that tropical-escape design aesthetic that seems to be everywhere these days. Want more of it? Skip the copycats and head straight to the source by following the bright and beautiful design account of artist Justina Blakeney, creator of @thejungalow.
“Let yourself be transported to some fabulous place with color, texture, and style,” says Michelle Harrison-McAllister of Michelle Harrison Design. “Are we in Greece, Morocco? No, just here at home. Justina Blakeney’s Instagram feed is never without that burst of happiness we need.”

If you’re looking for some all-around gorgeous (and modern) home inspiration, look no further than the interior design studio of Syd and Shea McGee. Filled with clean lines and neutral colors, this account is rife with ideas for creating the ultimate modern farmhouse style in just about any room of the home.
“This couple’s designs are so effortless, with an organic intuitive approach, that you would never know the years of sacrifice it took for us to be able to enjoy and drool over their designs,” says Harrison-McAllister. “This block-print throw adds that fresh organic texture and subtle pattern without being overwhelming.”

If your interior style embodies “less is more,” then you’re going to love the ultraminimalist look of stylist Elisabeth Heier’s account.
“Her Instagram gives a true sense of casual luxury, an effortless and ocean-swept minimalism,” says designer Megan Dufresne of MCDesign. “Scrolling through her IG page is the visual equivalent of having a glass of white wine on a hammock. And having a great statement piece—like this cluster pendant—makes a huge impact in any space. Even though it looks super modern, it actually works in traditional environments as well.”

We all wish our homes could be as colorful and cheery as Kelli Collins Mango Manor. But the next best thing is to follow her account for all the amazing rainbow, ocean-inspired decor.
“Kelli Collins is a true artist who will transport you to the Bahamas,” says Harrison-McAllister. “Her designs bring a tropical vibe with a bohemian twist that adds positivity and a feel-good attitude.”
Want some beach luxury without the sand? The velvet shell pillow above is a versatile and happy conversation piece in any room in your home.

For designs that check all the boxes (fun, neutral, boho, modern—the list goes on), pop on over to the amazingly versatile Instagram feed of designer Emily Henderson.
“Emily Henderson burst onto the scene taking no prisoners and showed us that one designer can design pretty much any style,” says Harrison-McAllister. “This tulip-style table and chair is the perfect way to add a simple and modern touch to your home.”
Get the look: For a fun and modern dining set that will check as many boxes as Henderson’s look, shop this Tynan dining table and these tulip side chairs from Rove Concept.
Old-world European designs with a touch of modern flair? If your answer is “yes, please,” that’s also an indication that you should check out the Instagram design world of Mark D. Sikes.
“If you love blue and white interiors, Mark Sikes is your guy,” says Dufresne. “He uses the combo in endless ways and nails the kind of blue-blooded traditional feeling that’s in short supply these days.”

Designer extraordinaire Amber Lewis is another must-follow, especially if your life goals include occupying an idyllic minimalist farmhouse like hers, with warm interiors and original beams.
“Amber is the current queen of all things laid-back fabulous,” says Dufresne. “Her rooms are super luxurious, relaxed, and relatable. They’re unfussy and warm, with furniture that has age and character.”

If you dream of California living in just about any season, you’re going to love the dreamy Instagram account of Christina Higham.
“Christina Higham reminds us that your home is a place that brings you joy, inspiration, creativity, and peace,” says Harrison-McAllister. “Her designs showcase this and make it easy to interpret and embrace your own style.”
