New York based Jenny Wolf has an organic approach to interior design and the residential spaces she works on. Jenny incorporates vintage elements with modern fixtures and colour ways to create modern yet timeless designs.
In the six years since Instagram burst into the App Store, the social-networking site for the visually oriented has become the clickbait of choice for interior designers—Bunny Williams has 129,000 followers—and, for young decorators especially, a source of new clients as well. “I’ve met so many people on Instagram,” says Mark D. Sikes, whose preppy, all-American style has earned him 75,500 fans. “It’s less polished than a professionally produced design portfolio, but it puts you literally into the hands of the public, showing them who you are and what you love.” Here, 10 design firms talk about the power (and pitfalls) of Instagram.
Anyone who’s a big fan of colour is going to love Brighton based Sophie’s work. As a colour specialist, she knows how to create fresh and exciting colour combinations that sit together perfectly. Her Instagram is bright, exciting, and exactly what you need to get yourself pumped on a Monday morning!

Here at SODS, we’re always rooting for the underdog, so instead of creating a list of the most popular interior design accounts on Instagram, we’ve scoped out the best ones you’re probably yet to set eyes on.
The design world isn’t what it used to be — and that’s probably for the best. Social media has become not only a creative outlet for a new generation, but also a crucial way to find clients. An innovative young jeweler exhibits her wares not just at the usual trade fairs, but amid the avant-garde innovators at Design Miami. And a communal studio space in Manhattan provides a new template for how designers can work, both together and apart.
These are the top 20 Instagram accounts to watch in 2018. You’ll find an eclectic mix of minimalism, scandi chic, quirky prints, layered textures, and colour combos you’d never dreamed of pairing together.
Kia Stanford is a young, London based interior designer, who specialises in luxury residential design. The mood here is warm and homely but decadent at the same time. You can check out her stunning portfolio on her website here: www.kiadesigns.co.uk.
Editors have reached out to Anne Maxwell Foster, right, and Suysel dePedro Cunningham after seeing posts of their projects in progress. A rule: Not too many kid photos. @tiltonfenwick 42,800 followers
Luke Edward Hall is an artist and designer of interiors, fabrics and ceramics. If you’re looking for interior inspiration that’s quirky, colourful, and nothing like your average, you’ll love Luke’s instagram feed!
Irina Kartun is both an interior designer, and architect, which you’ll be able to guess from one look at her Instagram page. Irina has a knack for creating the cosiest of spaces, through layering textures, subtle prints, and sparing additions of colour.
I love seeing this juicy living room we created for a client on @viyetny thanks for posting! #patternonpattern #vibrant #sgiinstall #saragilbaneinteriors
