10 Colorful Instagram Accounts I Go to for Design Inspiration | Wit & Delight

Since moving into our home a few months ago, I’ve become enamored with ways to incorporate color in interior design. While our previous home was designed in a mostly neutral palette, I’m fully embracing the existing colorful aesthetic of our new place. Transitioning into this vibrant space with its peach, pink, and yellow walls has given me a new sense of purpose and inspiration in design that I’d been missing before.

When I’m looking for design inspiration outside of our home, I head online to Instagram. I’ve long had a habit of saving my favorite posts, and lately, the theme in my saved design folder has been color. I find myself much more drawn to bold interiors than I was before, and I’m forever in awe of the many designers who bring these stunning spaces to life.

Today I’m sharing ten of my favorite Instagram accounts to turn to when I’m looking for colorful design inspiration. Once you’ve made it through my recommendations, I’d love to hear your favorite design accounts in the comments!

I’m also transitioning my home for neutral to more color after realizing that I’m actually not much of a minimalist, I’ve been admiring Reath Design, Studio Ashby & India Mahdavi Design. I’ve also found the British shelter mags tend to feature more colorful interiors (i.e., House & Garden).
