10 Instagram accounts you should be following

In the vast world of Instagram we can find heaps of inspiration for interior design and home décor. Ever wondered who was behind Instagram’s most ethereal and aesthetically pleasing pages? Whether they’re artists, designers, art directors or photographers, these people manage some of the most well-curated profiles around. In no particular order, here are 10 Instagram accounts you should be following, let’s dive in!

1. Visual Vacay (@visual_vacay)

Michaella Wissen, 28, from Sweden but raised between the U.S. and Sweden. She works as a travel, lifestyle and fashion photographer.

“The best part about my job is meeting new people and experiencing new places. I was thrown into photography when I was 18. I was working at a production company and one day I was handed a camera and told to go shoot Rihanna’s concert in Stockholm. I had no idea what I was doing, but then and there I discovered I had an eye for capturing moments. A year later I moved to LA with my two girlfriends, we would pack our car full of clothes, drive up and down PCH and photograph each other, to then post on our blogs and Instagram. And from there it turned into a career, so it really was a passion that turned into a career.”

How would you describe your aesthetic?

The eclectic meets the minimalist. I’m inspired by so many different styles. I love collecting random vintage pieces, but I also really appreciate a clean space.



2. Bianca Nardo (@biancanardo)

Bianca Nardo, 33, lives in Melbourne, Australia. She’s an Art Director at Date of Birth, the design agency she owns with her fiancé John.


How would you describe your aesthetic?

I think my aesthetic hangs heavy with the scent of nostalgia — timeless architecture, art, design and of course appreciation of the female form.

4. PAS.COE (@pas_coe)

Emma Pascoe is the London based creative behind PAS.COE. Her professional career spans across set design, styling, window displays, pop ups, events and interiors. The PAS.COE Instagram feed showcases the interiors, architects and designers that inspire and influence Emma.


How would you describe your aesthetic?

PAS.COE’s aesthetic is understated, timeless and authentic. With a focus on mid-century modern and Belgian influences.

4. Mouse Interiors (@mouse_interiors)

Tanya Chancellor, works as an accessory designer, after having worked in fashion for over 10 years for brands such as Paul Smith, Coach, Rag & Bone, and Globe-Trotter to name a few. This year she decided to explore her passion in interior design further and enrolled in an online course from KLC School in Chelsea, London. As it’s very in-depth and technical Tanya started Mouse Interiors as a way to keep her inspired and figure out her style.

“It’s a visual reference library of all the designers, styles, craftsmen, furniture, antique stores and artists that I’m learning about and love. Every single image sparks some sort of excitement in me!”

How would you describe your aesthetic?

I’m still developing my aesthetic, and it’s fun to see how Mouse evolves. Right now, it’s Californian, Mid Century mixed with some European quirkiness. I love interiors to be a perfect blend of natural textures and materials, but with playful elements whether that be pops of colour, a fun chair or giant oversized art.

5. Patria Maree Design (@patriamareedesign)

Patria Maree, 26, Interior and Furniture Designer.


How would you describe your aesthetic?

Simple designs detailed by natural elements and textures.


6. Charlotte Rey (@charlotterey)

Charlotte Rey, Swedish designer and creative director, co-founder of interior and design studio Campbell Rey that she runs with her creative partner Duncan Campbell out of London. Duncan and Charlotte set up Campbell-Rey in 2014 as a creative consultancy working across creative direction specialising in legacy, lifestyle and craftsmanship brands including Bentley, Bulgari, Baccarat, Rizzoli and Museo Mario Testino.

Right now, we are working on the late summer launch of a capsule furniture collection we are calling the Pavilion which encompasses sofas, armchairs, chairs and side tables. We are also excited that our Murano collections Cosimo and Cosima will be available exclusively on Matches from June as well as continuing work on our interiors projects across Europe.”

How would you describe your aesthetic?

On the one hand, I am a terrible romantic, and would nostalgically hang a hand-loomed, powder peach, Florentine damask next to a Gustavian pale walnut burr chest, but on the other hand, I’m also a little punk at heart, who loves a juxtaposition. So I’d pair that with something conceptual and futuristic, like a Sabine Marcelis candy cube or a neon artwork by Dan Flavin. (…) There are things that I love such as how Mexican architect Luis Barragán informs his stark architectural forms with an exuberant fuchsia palette or (…) an eccentric great style of L’Oeil magazine editor Rosamond Bernier. I appreciate the craftsmanship combined with the irreverence of (…) jeweller Joel Arthur Rosenthal, who makes a diamond brooch that looks like a twisted orange peel. (…) I also love the verdant and lush atmosphere of Palacío de Monserrate in Sintra, and the proud but doomed splendour of a film like Visconti’s Il Gattopardo. All that amalgamated with the playfulness and surrealism of Carsten Höller’s Upside Down Mushroom Room artwork at the Prada Fondazione and my aesthetic probably lands somewhere bang in the middle. 

7. Main Edition (@main.edition)

Victoire, founded Main Edition in 2016 when moving from Paris to Lisbon.

“I focus on everything hand-made ‘fait-main’. I am a ceramist myself, creating objects, dishes and unique ceramic hands. I am also an art director working on private houses and hospitality projects.”

How would you describe your aesthetic?

My aesthetic comes from everything that catches my eyes. I would say eclectic with a bit of mystic : I give symbolic meaning to everything I make. An object is made to shine, to provide luck, to give hope, to share love.

8. White Sage (@white__sage)

Xanthea Riordan, lives in Melbourne, Australia. She has a background in Interior Design and is currently focusing on making her project White Sage through a website and smaller explorations.

How would you describe your aesthetic?

My aesthetic is calm and purposeful. White walls with sun streaming in, a timber accent somewhere in the room (be it chair or window sill), and something curved to add a quirk.

9. Her Must (@her.must)

Jessica Metni, 30, Artist and Photographer. Her passions are photography, Interior Design and Vintage finds. She couldn’t live without her Frenchies, beautiful decor or her camera.

With many years of education through the greatest design and fashion magazines of this world, way before Pinterest ever took place,  I have voluntarily plunged myself,  from as long as I can remember, into the world of design.  Adding to this,  the experience and visual baggage of many travels and many more years living in Europe while pursuing my young modelling career and finishing my studies in Visual arts. My family owning antique galleries also participated in feeding my love for interiors. Passionate about vintage furniture and the history of design, I always tend to mix both modern, mid and antique pieces to my decor to balance things out in time. I have fallen even deeper in love with the idea of beautiful interiors when realising decorating was a personal therapy. My space is a reflection of my state of mind.”

How would you describe your aesthetic?

I would probably define my aesthetic as a mix of French European classics with a soft touch of a unique and artistic Italian design. I love furniture, textures and shapes, accents and the details of great architecture, making my love for Visual spaces ever so strong. My heartfelt devotions for any form of Art forces me to add sculptures, paintings or any details to my decor in order to feel visually satisfied when decorating.  I love to keep my aesthetics simple, elegant but effortless. I don’t use too many colours usually. I keep things rather neutral but use colours seasonally depending on my mood to structure my emotions.  One thing I would say that defines me the most is my ongoing need to move furniture around and redecorate to recreate my inner space. I love redesigning the angles, relocating my energy and giving a new mood to my rooms.

10. All The Rest (@alltherest_)

Hannah Covacic, works as an apparel designer and has been in the industry for over 13 years. She has worked both in London and in the U.S. for brands such as Nike, Gap and New Balance.

A big part of design is creating the ‘mood’ and as Instagram is like a giant mood board, I started ‘All The Rest‘ to build a dream ‘R&R’ lifestyle and to inspire others with what we have to look forward to when we get back outside”

How would you describe your aesthetic?

My time on the West Coast and especially in California has definitely influenced me. I love outdoors, indoors vibes, being near the sea, the sunshine and being warm. I like things to feel luxurious but comfy. My husband and I are huge collectors of old stuff and have lots of vintage industrial furniture, old wooden pieces and vintage blankets and textiles. So I seem to seek out big, clean spaces that are light and airy, perfect for filling with things! I’d say my aesthetic is Relaxed, Vintage, California Cool.
