There’s no better place to begin your quest for decor ideas than scrolling through the feeds of inspiring interior designers. Here’s a list of 50 such designers and their Instagram handles:

1. PIERRE YOVANOVITCH- @pierre.yovanovitch

The work of Pierre Yovanovitch is what dreams are made of—fantasies translated into rooms with endlessly wondrous possibilities. In his “Oops” collection, he presents fuzzy, high-backed armchairs with what look like bear ears, pointed floor lamps in mocha, and coral hues that call to mind mountains at sunset. From quiet country sanctuaries to urban escapes, he bedecks his spaces with a sharp signature and chic, contemporary flair.

Founded in New York, Grant K. Gibson’s namesake interior design firm became a reality in 2002, and has since moved to San Francisco, where his team works on projects around the country. Gibson creates functional spaces with personality—all of which feel welcoming enough to walk in and plop down on the sofa or table. Muted palettes are met with vivid hues in plush textiles, wallpaper, or even just a plant.

Honing in on clean lines and rich textures, her interiors are swathed in milky palettes, intricate patterns, and geometric shapes. Earthy tones abound in soft linens and wood with a hint of onyx.

Boho queen Justina Blakeney has turned her maximalist flair into a full-fledged business with design collaborations, a blog, and a shop teeming with groovy furniture, rugs, wallpaper, baskets, and more. Her work oozes color, a dizzying spread of intricate patterns, and of course, tons of plants. If we can learn anything from her style, it’s that there are no limits to how wildly beautiful a space can be.

With a natural eye for aesthetic, Ryan Korban has no formal training. Yet, he has developed his own style melding old-world romance with urban edge to create spaces that exude glam luxe. His designs are bold, intricate, and include just a hint of savage to an otherwise eminently refined portfolio.

Los Angeles–based designer Sarah Sherman Samuel dabbles in just about everything. From interior and product design—including a line of paper goods for Target—to launching a blog, as well as content and social media campaigns, she does it all. Samuel also just did a gut renovation of Mandy Moore’s house, which was an original midcentury Harold B. Zook. She melds fun tones and patterns with straight lines and geometric shapes to create a space that’s as fun as it is aesthetically pleasing.
