Ever wonder where designers get their seemingly endless inspiration for trendy, eye-catching design? Turns out, it’s the same place we return to again and again: Instagram. While we love a good Pinterest board, there’s also no shortage of inspo-worthy accounts on Instagram that are also worth a follow.

In fact, when we asked our favorite designers for their must-follow accounts for the coolest decorating ideas, a few of them had trouble picking just one. “There’s just so much talent out there,” says editorial design expert Heather Bullard. Tasked with the difficult job of selecting just one favorite, check out who our fellow design mavens recommend adding to your feed. 

@Dabito

“I love @Dabito of Old Brand New,” says Stephanie Watkins of Casa Watkins Living. “His use of color is on point. He designs very colorful spaces without making it color-overload.” See inside Dabito’s playful New Orleans home here.

@kellywearstler

Designer Sarah Whittenbraker calls Kelly Wearstler “the queen” for her elegantly over-the-top designs and vibrant use of color and texture that feel beautiful, intentional, and oh so trendy.

@abigailahern

“I’m very very into British design,” says Shavonda Gardner of SG Style Blog. “So my fave at the moment is Abigail Ahern.” Playing with deeper, more saturated hues and pops of interesting texture, Ahern and her London store expertly display multi-layered design. 

@studiomcgee

Syd and Shea McGee are masters of clean lines and bright design. In fact, their amazing before-and-after studio makeover is an all-time favorite. Designer Jacklyn Clark of Lark & Linen raves about the husband and wife design duo’s instagram saying, “They’re killing it!”

@waitingonmartha

Katrina Blair follows Mandy Kellog Rye of Waiting on Martha for her great sense of style. Check out her home’s interior photos along with a few lifestyle shots that make up her colorful account.
