I came across Kate’s work on Pinterest when I saw this stunning warm office. The way she layered the cool blue grasscloth with the warm wood elements and casually through some olive velvet in there… it’s perfection. I’m officially a loyal fan and she kicks off the list of 7 interior designers you should be following on Instagram.
From her curated home goods collection to her lifestyle blog, everything Christina puts out there is casual, approachable and entirely elevated. This kitchen design makes me reconsider my distaste for black counters, because it’s anything but dark or dated. On Instagram, I love her subtle, desaturated feed + casual cool captions.
The Habitat Collective is NAILING the minimal yet comfortable thing. Every project they reveal I find myself pinning over and over. Their Palmetto Bay Eclectic is a particular favorite with it’s quiet moments of recessed details and built in window seats. You can follow them here.
Aside from being one of my favorite humans of all time, Clara of Banner Day is a leader in the industry. She somehow magically balances bright, bold patterns and color with natural, minimal layers. I think what makes Banner Day one of the top 7 interior designers you should be following is her ability to design both residential and commercial projects. The photo above? It’s a ceramics studio. MIND BLOWN. View the full portfolio here (and check out her new site we recently designed) and follow her on Instagram here.
I may be biased because Brett is a Bay Area girl, but she’s also the coolest girl in the room, who also happens to be the kindest and most down to earth. Decorotation’s designs are the epitome of effortless cool. Everything in the Decorotation portfolio is layered, natural and organic. But her Instagram is even cooler as she spends much of her free time exploring beautiful vistas, or cuddling her adorable pup. The dining area pictured above of her Pismo Beach project is so well balanced and tranquil, I’m moving right in.
Never have I ever been so drawn to contemporary spaces. Joyce seamlessly blends modern minimal design with artisan craftsmanship and antiques. JDP Interiors is producing projects unlike the norm, and I am so inspired by the fiercely unapologetic niche she’s created. Nothing feels fussy or overdone, everything feels warm and inviting, all while maintaining a minimal aesthetic. You can keep up with Joyce + the studio here.
The final of our 7 interior designers you should be following is strictly insider information – because we’re getting ready to launch the new Scout Modern next week! Ashley’s work is an absolute dream combination of lighting and texture play. Her ability to create a focal wall is uncanny, and it truly makes every project of hers feel entirely unique. Follow along here on Instagram as we count down to the big reveal, when you can drool over all her projects next week.
