If You Follow These Instagram Accounts, You Don't Need a Decorator
While more people than ever are experiencing social fatigue and quitting Instagram, there's one reason why our Insta feed will always remain indispensable: It serves as an endless and ever-evolving knowledge base. In the past year, our social feed has informed many of our decisions, from which pair of boots to buy for fall to where to brunch on Sunday mornings, and naturally, how to decorate our homes.
No other social platform has informed decorating trends and new arrivals in the décor world quite as quickly as Instagram. But in order to use it to its full potential, you need to be following the right accounts. How do you find the newest and hottest products on the market? Where to go for seriously innovative DIY projects? What projects are our favorite interior designers working on right now—a celeb's house, perhaps, or a hot new hotel? Follow these 11 influential Instagram accounts to stay on the cutting edge of décor and design.

It's no secret that we have a soft spot for Athena Calderone when it comes to entertaining, but her Instagram feed @eyeswoon is also a feast for the eyes as far as interiors are concerned. Between her beach house in Amagansett, New York, and the renovation of her new Brooklyn home, there's no shortage of inspiration in this interior designer's feed.
Just about everything in this space has me swooning. The pale + patina'd herringbone flooring and the ornate mouldings + ceiling medallion are not lost on me; these details, mixed with the more, pared-down furnishings, create a stunning mix of old world and new. Continued inspiration for my townhouse renovation. Shop this space on today's #RoomSwoon on ES | link in profile
