Mix Vintage With Contemporary

@eyeswoon / Athena Calderone

Athena Calderone endlessly inspires us as the modern homemaker. From her ethereal edible masterpieces to the design of her very own home, everything she touches has an element of her mastery. That brings us to her living room, where she has gathered vintage pieces “reaped in history” and contemporary designers to tell the story of her style. She attributes the success of this room to the “controlled palette and varied textures."

Find Balance in Open Rooms

@colinking / Colin King

We love the way Colin King has mixed proportions and weight to achieve this cozy, contemporary look. He even knows a thing or two about making a home look more expensive than it is. By styling chairs and side tables in small groups, this space has been transformed from large and open to small vignettes within the larger concept. If your space is an open floor plan as such, mimicking this will aid in optimizing the space into common areas, workspaces, and more.

Swoon Through Metallics

@kipandco / Alex Van Der Sluy

This room is fearlessly steeped in modern opulence within Alex Van Der Sluys' swoon-worthy home—with heavy marble, metallic gold-clad cupboards, and a blush island to greet you each morning. Although it incorporates a lot of varying textures and colors, the sharp edges of the design and sleek, clean styling make for a minimal take on glamour. Don’t be afraid to go for the gold.

Dress Up White Spaces

@mdezeiner / Marlene Zeiner Borthen

We will never get tired of how impactful the right cozy rug can be in a living space like this. With plenty of natural light, you don’t need much more than a few earthy elements to dress it up a little. Furniture with wood structures and leather detailing goes a long way when paired with white walls. For unexpected oomph, add edgy metallic pieces like these shallow bowls.

Look to the Ceiling

@mdezeiner / Elisa Ossino Studio

Ceilings are often overlooked as prime real estate for a statement, but Elisa Ossino Studio took it to the next level by painting these beams emerald to tie in the room's hues in a new way. Without going all green, this tells a story of the color palette in a clean way. Consider looking up in your own home—you never know what inspiration may strike you.

Soften Clean Lines

@mydomaine / JWS Interiors

We are forever inspired by the clean lines of a plaster dwelling. While this material can come off cold and stiff, it is easily softened with vintage rugs, wood shelving, and picture windows that let the outside in. We'd embrace this shower situation any day.

Pay Attention to Layout

@mydomaine / Interior Blink

We love how playful this open floor plan space is, from the swing bench that optimizes seating in a unique way to the romantic canopy bed. Using rugs and varying heights of design elements such as the pendant lamps and poster bed, this large open room transforms into smaller areas that feel private and intentional.

Contrast With Statement Lighting

@mydomaine / Jeremiah Brent and Nate Berkus

We always knew designers Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent would execute an effortless dream home, but this snapshot proves that neutrals can make a statement. We love the softly rounded furniture in contrast to the black metal lighting fixtures and sculptural elements.

Incorporate Global Décor

best rooms on instagram

@mydomaine / Carley Page Summers

We are continuously inspired by the crafts and design aesthetic of Moroccan décor, and this bedroom does this colorful culture justice. Layered woven rugs on the floor instantly warm up the space, while heavy metal light fixtures and vintage mirrors bring home that eclectic charm.

For that globally-inspired look, mix and match pieces of décor like family heirlooms, vintage flea market finds, and modern furniture in the same space.

Offset All-White Design With Texture

@leannefordinteriors / Leanne Ford

We love seeing art in unexpected places: It’s not just for the gallery wall. This bathroom in Leanne Ford’s home gives an all-white room an eye-catching twist. If you’re lucky enough to have arched doorways in your own home, use them as a frame to showcase a stylishly layered depth of field.

Blend Walls With the Ceiling

@amberinteriors / Amber Lewis

While this living space has high ceilings that really open up the room, you can recreate a grandiose feeling by painting your walls and ceiling the same shade of warm, bright white hues. If you get a good amount of natural light, even better, the sunbeams will bounce off of the white walls to make your home feel larger and more open.

Mix Masculine and Feminine Touches

@em_henderson / Emily Henderson

This bathroom by Emily Henderson is the perfect balance between masculine and feminine, ideal for a couple who coexist in a space as such. The heavy marble sinks steal the show amongst clean lines and gold fixtures. Consider a statement sink for your own private bathroom, and keep the rest simple for a sleek finish.

Make It Natural

@em_henderson / Emily Henderson

Earthy décor elements such as natural wood accessories and rough stone planters invite the outside in. You can easily recreate this look styled by Emily Henderson by collecting natural fiber rugs, neutral-hued art, and keeping your walls bright and white.

Don't Be Afraid of Color

@mydomaine / Natalie Myers of Veneer Designs

Don’t be afraid to use saturated colors in unexpected places to liven up a room such as your dining area. This 3,700-square-foot home wastes no space and gets right to it with a playful, patterned color palette. Dinner parties will always be a little more celebratory with textures like suede dining chairs, vintage rugs, and brushed brass fixtures. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by matching colors, find framed artwork with similar tones to tie in louder elements.

Create a Soothing Retreat

@saasha_burns / Saasha Burns

"Stay in bed" will be your life motto when you recreate this Soho House Istanbul bedroom in your own home. We love the way the décor is mix-matched from varying eras and styles, coming together to create a place where sweet dreams happen. If you’re looking to take on this aesthetic, invest in a statement-making bed frame like this velvet emerald green piece.

Embrace Scandinavian Inspo

@scandinavianhomes / Scandinavian Homes

What's cozier than folding into your favorite bed sheets next to this marble fireplace and cracking open a good book? Scandinavian design is forever influencing us with its minimal sensibilities and unexpected elements. If your home naturally holds heavy-hitting details like this fireplace, allow these to be the statements, and dress up the rest with monochromatic décor and a simple rug.

Scandinavian design is defined by its simplicity: So if you're not sure where to start, begin with simple white walls and a dedicated color scheme that brings contrast to the room.

Bring the Vacation Vibes Home

@sfgirlbybay / Victoria Smith

Invite vacation style into your everyday abode with lightweight linens, seaside colors, and tiled flooring per this snap of Hotel San Cristóbal Baja's bedroom design. If you’re working with a small budget, this look is easy to get with just a few key pieces—tasseled pillowcases and a colorful throw will do the trick.

Let the Architecture Be the Guide

best rooms on instagram

@bradytolbert / Leanne Ford Interiors

Leanne Ford’s former home brings chalet-chic to the desert with her creation of a comfortable, cabin-like space. The structure lends itself to this concept (stone fireplace, raw wood flooring, beamed rooftop), but Ford made it even warmer with her personal touches of layered rugs, a mirrored coffee table to reflect the space back on itself, and natural wood accents.

Make a Marbled Statement

@sacha.strebe / Sacha Strebe

If you ever wondered if you can use too much marble in one room, this snapshot is proof that you can't. Denise Vasi’s home is a functional take on glamour, and her style really culminates in the kitchen. The wood-beamed ceiling matched with marble a backsplash is a dreamy way to frame such a luxurious material and make it feel warmer.

Dress up Your Bathroom

@amyastley / Amy Astley

Bathrooms are often thought of last as a primarily functional place to stash your beauty products and rinse off your day. This bathroom, however, is more of a vignette based on the celebration of relaxation. The simplicity of this image shows that if you can invest in anything, a dreamy tub goes a long way.

Create Depth With Lighting

@amybartlam / Amy Bartlam

This living room by designer Courtney Nye is an ode to the Spanish-style architecture of Los Angeles that we know and love. We adore the way she left the structure to speak for itself and uplifted it with details like an arched mirror, statement lighting balanced around the room, and a natural wood coffee table for the centerpiece.

Decorate in Multiple Styles

@tessaneustadt / Tessa Neustadt

Jenna Lyons’ Soho loft is a sanctuary above the bustling city. We love the use of vintage flea market knick-knacks, classic gold fixtures, and creamy marble. At the end of a long Manhattan minute, we would love to soak in this deep bathtub.

Make the Most of Small Spaces

best rooms on instagram

@talirothdesigns / Sacha Strebe

The success of Sacha Strebe’s use of her family’s 350-square foot Silverlake space is attributed to “good planning and beautiful pieces.” Prioritizing art and independent contemporary designers makes this living room have a touch of individuality. If you’re working with a bungalow on the petite side, think vertical when choosing your décor—and don’t be afraid to hang large pieces on the walls to optimize often-overlooked spaces.
