Once all the banks, the paperwork and the vans full of stuff are out of the way, most new homeowners can’t wait to get started on turning their house into a home.
But where to start? Interior design isn’t always easy. Fortunately, there are plenty of accounts on Instagram that post loads of wonderful design ideas.
Here is a run down of some of the best…
1. Ryan Korban
Self-described ‘arbiter of taste’ Ryan Korban posts pictures of a stunning array of ornate interiors. His account is perfect inspiration for any big upcoming projects.
Designsponge post pictures of beautiful interiors and loads of cheeky dogs – what’s not to love?
Beautiful dog + beautiful rug = happy home. Thanks to @elizagranstudio for sharing this in #DSPETSTYLE A photo posted by Grace Bonney (@designsponge) on
3. Nick Olsen
Nick’s beautiful pictures capture a variety of different styles and subjects. He describes himself as a traditionalist who likes modern things – and you can see that he means what he says looking at this lovely living room design.
Are you decorating a brand new home? If so, now could be the perfect time to get your life insurance sorted. It’s one of the things you want to make sure you don’t forget – and with Beagle Street, you never will, as we give you your policy details in a limited edition beautiful art print to hang on the wall (T&Cs apply). They’re stylish and practical. And since we’re up to 35% cheaper than other life insurers, they won’t break the bank either.*

Homepolish make interiors their business – and they’re great at it. The page is full of cool and kooky designs, like this gorgeous Manhattan showroom.
Are you all familiar with the unofficial anti-wedding bridal boutique @stonefoxbride? They’re known for their irreverent, non-traditional vibe, which we were challenged to bring to life in their Manhattan showroom. Personally, we’d love to drape ourselves in their gorgeous vintage gowns and lounge here for days, but why don’t you take the full tour and let us know what you think 🙂 [LINK IN PROFILE ✨] // Design by @matthewcanedesigns of #HomepolishNYC + photo by @claireesparros.

7. Emily Katz
Have you heard of Macramé? Well, it’s the art of textile making using knots, rather than weaving, and Emily is an absolute master at it. If you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary, like this comfy-looking hammock, Emily’s account should be your first stop.

The French get it right: a classical, symmetrical foundation, oodles of black and gold, and a shock of color. A photo posted by Jonathan Adler (@jonathanadler) on
