Instagram has become something entirely different from what it was a decade ago. With algorithms and suggested accounts dictating our experiences on our feeds, I thought it would be nice to highlight some of my favorite content creators. Some of them are names you may recognize, and others are probably new to you! While I’ve shared similar posts in previous years, this is my current selection of Instagram accounts I most enjoy seeing on my feed day after day—particularly in the design space, with a couple of food accounts in the mix too. I think you’ll like them as well!
Gladys Tay | @thegladystay
Gladys is a local designer and vintage dealer. I’m always interested in what she’s doing and talking about. Her style is so different from mine and I find her really refreshing.
Courtney Tate | @_mayfairhouse_
Following along with the restoration of this incredible 1920s Atlanta, GA home is one of my favorite things to watch!
Bri Emery | @designlovefest
Bri left Los Angeles with her husband and bought the coolest retro home in Upstate New York! I love watching her stories and the design progress on her home so much.
Jordan Ferney | @jordanferney
Jordan is another person in the process of creating a haven in Upstate New York. All of her design decisions have me nodding my head and saying a resounding “YES!”
Sophia Roe | @sophia_roe
I’ve long enjoyed following Sophia on Instagram. Her videos are beautiful and she creates recipes that are thoughtful and unique but still attainable.
Heidi Caillier | @heidicaillierdesign
Heidi is one of my favorite designers right now. Browse the interiors on her page and you’ll see why…
Gwen | @themakerista
Gwen is so detailed in how she shares her design process. I’m always learning something from her. Right now she is building her dream home and it’s fascinating to follow along.
Kipling House Interiors | @kiplinghouseinteriors
This account is another local favorite. If you love classic, traditional homes with a bit of a southern twist, follow these ladies. You’ll find their work in design magazines, too!
Carolina Gelen | @carolinagelen
This is an amazing food account to follow. I find myself saving so many of Carolina’s recipes.
Elena | @thishouse5000
I love following Elena for her charming personality and delightful, ever-evolving home decor.
Meta Coleman | @metacoleman_
I love how unique Meta’s creative lens is! Watching her projects unfold has taught me so much about the value of following your personal design style.
