18 of the best interior design Instagram accounts you need to follow

Over the past decade, the way we use social media has changed to such an extent that we’re more likely to open up our Instagram feed over Google if we’re looking for something specific. As a platform based around sharing visual concepts, Instagram in particular has become a source of inspiration for almost anything – from food and travel to fashion and design, you can follow specific accounts so that your feed is tailored to your personal taste.

When it comes to interior design, there’s no end to the amount of Instagrammers creating content, with a pick and mix of both industry experts and everyday homeowners displaying their ideas and designs. The sheer saturation of the platform has meant it can be difficult to even know where to start – but it also means there’s endless opportunity to get inspired.

We’ve picked out 18 Instagram accounts with varied approaches and stylistic concepts, both professionals and hobbyists, which we think are setting the pace and pushing boundaries – the ones you need to follow for your daily dose of decor inspiration.
