We've got a confession–we're kind of addicted to Instagram. That's right, you're not alone. But after hours upon hours of refreshing your Explore page and diving down the rabbit hole of your friends' friends' friends, it's easy to get inspo-overload. Wouldn't it be great if there was a convenient roundup of peak design grams?
Okay, so we're on the same page. We've trolled our feed and pulled together our top ten designers and interior addicts who consistently kill the game at content curation. After the jump, check out our latest faves who we just can't stop double-tapping (and some Consort pieces that'll help you recreate their vibe perfectly).
Clean, cool, and never boring–we get only the best vibes from San Francisco-based interior designer Jeff Schlarb's feed. Founder of Jeff Schlarb Design Studio, his gram is a balanced mix of contemporary styling and eyebrow-cocking flair with plenty of sneak peeks into the day-in-the-life of a rising designer.
"A bit luxe and a lot laid back." Marrakech's El Fenn Hotel's bio opener doesn't just describe their feed, but it summarizes the entire energy of the North African premier travel destination. Diving deeper into their feed is one of our fave ways to jet set vicariously and soak up some of the best Moroccan-meets-modern design inspo out there.
Is there anything better than a talented designer sharing their inspo in real-time? If there is, we haven't found it. We love geeking out over Benjamin Johnston's feed on the regular, whether he's sharing updates on his own classically cool projects or showing some regram love to his design faves.
If Middle Age-modern wasn't a thing before, it is now. Every post on Obsolete Inc.'s delicately-curated feed marries antiquated wood and aged-stone detailing with gorgeous modern lighting silhouettes and luxe upholstery. King Louis XIV would be shook.
Pittsburgh's Leanne Ford of Leanne Ford Interiors knows cool, humble as her custom wall art may be. Her work has been featured just about everywhere–from Architectural Digest to Domino to the cover of Bright Bazaar's latest interiors book, Dream Decor. Her feed is a reflection of her modern yet lived-in aesthetic and offers firsthand glimpses behind-the-scenes on her HGTV show, "Restored by the Fords".
There're few things we love more than a designer with a high fashion sensibility, and Tiffany Howell is no exception. Her concept space, Night Palm, is part art gallery, part design space, and part home decor shop. We're obsessed with her unique style and natural ability to pair vintage scores with modern, forward-thinking furnishings.
Interiors and cats and caftans, oh my. Jake Rodehuth-Harrison, one half of L.A.-based interior design firm ETC.etera, has one of those perfectly balanced work-play feeds that just get us all heart-eyes-emoji. Not afraid of a good color pop, his 'gram is definitely one of our wilder faves.
We're closing out our list with some classic vibes. Los Angeles interior designer Richard Shapiro's feed strikes just the right balance of 20th century tradition and timeless flair with a bit of edge. A mix of inspo and his own work, you'll find influences from nearly every artistic movement over the past 100 years cohesively woven together in a format that inspires you to just double-tap the day away.
