Instagram has become a hub for talented and creative individuals who offer their unique and fresh concepts when it comes to revamping living spaces. The app opens a world where design flourishes in unexpected corners. While nationally-acclaimed interior designers certainly contributed their artistic touch, the realm of inspiration extends far beyond.
This platform bursts with creativity from renowned designers and design studios in Orange County, presenting a variety of styles incorporating timeless decors and the latest trends. I’ve curated 5 Instagram design accounts to ignite your passion and awaken your artistic senses. So, without further ado, let’s dive into who made the list!
#1 Nate Fischer Interiors | @natefischer
Nate Fischer Interiors epitomizes the seamless fusion of contemporary design and timeless elegance. Their IG page shows styles that embrace bold color schemes, intricate details, and opulent textures.
I just can’t help but be awestruck with this bedroom design. From the walnut-arched pocket door and rattan bed and fixture to the wall panel and pop of colors, it’s a stunning blend of the latest trends and styles.
This space also incorporates one of the trendiest features in contemporary designs right now. Wood slat paneling brings in texture in a dynamic way, especially on a smaller scale.
By browsing the rest of their posts, you’ll surely be treated to an array of design trends, styles, and elements. I love how attainable their designs are, making them not just inspirational but also practical for anyone looking to elevate their living spaces.
#2 Blackband Design | @blackbanddesign
Blackband Designs’ IG is a treasure trove of coastal chic meeting urban glamour. Their work is characterized by its use of geometric patterns, statement lighting, and bold colors, creating spaces that are both comfortable and stylish.
One specific design that caught our eye showcases their mastery in creating harmonious living areas with harmonious transitions between outdoor and indoor spaces. The use of a folding glass door opening up to a charming patio created a sense of continuity which allows nature to become an essential part of the interior.
I love the dynamic combinations of materials in this home bar. The architectural stone framing, geometric tiles, and waterfall edge marble countertop seamlessly work together, giving beautiful details and textures.
The juxtaposition of natural elements and clean lines in their work resonates with the rising trend of biophilic designs. This approach encourages us to rethink our living spaces, bringing nature indoors to have a soothing ambiance or enhance well-being.
#3 Valerie Saunders | @serendipitedesigns
With subtle hues, natural materials, layers, and cozy textures, Valerie Saunders’ designs have soft balance and harmony. Her posts are a visual feast for minimalists.
Her style is exemplified by this serene space, adorned with muted tones and carefully curated art pieces. The simplicity of the area is its strength, allowing each element to breathe and command attention. It incorporates the Japandi style, a fusion of Scandinavian warmth and Japanese minimalism, evident in the use of functional elegance, natural materials, and clean lines.
Fluted walls are one of the latest trends this year and I just adore this bathroom’s stunning fluted terrazzo tile. It’s perfectly paired with the pink tile and the tub is simply breathtaking.
Saunders’ designs urge us to embrace simplicity and create spaces that nurture a sense of calm and balance.
#4 Beth Sayler | @sayler_studio
The design philosophy of Beth Sayler revolves around colors, characters, and textures. Her studio specializes in interiors that equally combine comfort, function, and style.
This modern-French-country style bathroom exudes a balance between sophisticated and sweet. On the other hand, this moody blue bathroom design features the reemerging traditional lighting which adds a sweet touch and contrast to a modern space.
I often see her incorporate live plants in her designs which not only give a touch of vitality and tranquility but also align with the biophilic design trend. One perfect example is this living room. The space is airy and light and adding greenery complements the atmosphere and gives it a more holistic vibe.
Beth Sayler emphasizes creating spaces that promote well-being and relaxation and by assimilating such designs into our home, we can create sanctuaries that nurture both our mental and physical health. We can slowly start by just adding plants and making the most out of natural lights and sustainable materials.
#5 Jaime Zehner | @jzinteriordesigns
Taking us on a journey of fearless eclecticism, Jaime Zehner presents different eras, influences, and styles that collide in astounding harmony. Their designs are built in textures and layers, where every space should be filled with elements with fine details that connect and pull you in.
This kitchen from their latest Newport Cottage project features intricate textures and details coming together to create a wonderful space. I love everything about this area – the marble, fixture, metals, natural materials, and rich neutrals.
If you’re looking for a sign to choose marble, this is it. The integrated marble sink of this moody powder bathroom elevates the overall ambiance of the space. It has a refined luxurious presence that gives a touch of sophistication and opulence, enhancing the textured, darker wall and brass plumbing.
Her IG page is moody, vibrant, and vintage-inspired. It shows masterpieces where individuality and the unexpected are celebrated. Don’t forget to check out Zehner’s monthly mood blogs for more inspiration and shop their designs on their website.
