10 Must-Follow Instagram Accounts for Design Fans

Top Interior Designers on InstagramInstagram has quickly become one the most popular social media platforms.  With over 200 million users, 60 million photos uploaded every day (that’s 700 photos per second!), it’s no wonder those of us with a passion for design, decor, DIY and food, love the app!

With the volume of users and photos being uploaded, Instagram is an incredible source of inspiration, but let’s face it, it can also be overwhelming.  So I’ve picked four of my favorite amongst the most popular interior designer on IG.  These designers are perhaps a little less well known compared to titans like Jonathon Adler or Kelly Wearstler, but definitely worth following.


New York-based interior and jewelry designer Ashley Darryl shares a passion for everything mid-century modern and her adorable Brussels Griffon, Madison.  She is best known for creating livable, unique spaces by blending styles into a cohesive, one-of-a-kind look, Ashley prides herself on bringing her client’s visions to life.


Sidney-based Sibella Court, is an interior stylist, styling spaces like Bergdorf Goodman, Jo Malone, Donna Karan, Crate & Barrel and many more; a product designer with a 110-colour house paint range with Murobond, as well as a soap and hardware range and collaborations with Anthropologie; she is also a historian, avid globetrotter, and creative director, infusing her designs with a rustic, lived-in charm.

San Francisco-based Grant K. Gibson operates on the philosophy that a home is the ultimate reflection of personality: interiors are about the people who inhabit them and each interior is unique. Known for classic, well-edited spaces that are not only beautiful but functional, Gibson’s work has been featured in all major interior design publications.


Los Angeles-based Orlando Soria is an interior designer, writer, and visual artist furnishing a clean, minimal aesthetic with greenery and pops of color, that create a feeling that is both cheerful and relaxing.  Soria serves as the creative director for Homepolish and can be seen on HGTV as Emily Henderson‘s on-camera assistant on the home makeover series Secrets From A Stylist.



Italian designer, Alessandra Branca believes classical beauty was meant to be intermingled with everyday life, and that the well-lived life takes place in artful structures graced with comfort, elegance, and wit.  In addition to executing wide-ranging interiors and product development projects for a global clientele, as well as residential and commercial projects, she has developed collections of  fabric, furniture, home and fashion accessory collections.



New York-based Ryan Korban, without any formal training, has developed his unique aesthetic, characterized by a mix of luxury, old-world romance, and urban cool.   Drawing inspiration from Monet paintings to Helmut Newton photographs, he creates seductive, wondrous spaces that surpass trends to redefine traditional design for a new generation.


Columbia University grad, Nick Olsen creates comfortable interiors that nod to the past while maintaining a sense of humor and whimsy. He mixes antiques and modern artwork with signature élan, never one to shy from bold color, pattern, or an overscale gesture.  Nick was named a Top 10 “New Traditionalist” by the editors of Traditional Home, and his work has been featured in Domino, House Beautiful, British Homes & Gardens, Veranda, and the Wall Street Journal.


The great-granddaughter of the founder of the New York emporium ABC Carpet & Home, Madeline Weinrib is committed to breaking down the barriers between art and decoration.  She draws on her explorations on canvas to design decorative accessories — from rugs to fabric to fashion — that are refreshingly modern reinterpretations of the classics.  Her pieces are showcased, along with vintage textiles and other finds from her travels, in the Madeline Weinrib Atelier collection.


L.A. based designer, artist and blogger Justina Blakeney has a passion for color, pattern, and plants.  Justina and her blog, TheJungalow.com, have quickly become the go-to sources for bohemian design inspiration. For Justina, decorating is about feeling free, having fun and getting a little bit wild.


And finally Nashville-based, Benjamin Vandiver’s approach to design is simple and unique: he believes his team simply acts as a chameleon for their already remarkable clients. His penchant for soft colors, clean shapes, and spare details make his work a minimalist’s dream.
