Picture Perfect Homes

We round-up our favorite home décor and DIY Instagram accounts. Check out who made the list!

Design Sponge. Founded by Grace Bonney in 2004, Design Sponge quickly garnered its fan base and its reputation as the, “Martha Stewart Living for the Millennials” (as dubbed by the New York Times) for just cause; Bonney is a bona fide expert having previously worked as a contributing editor at Domino, House & Garden and freelance editor for Food and Wine. Design Sponge rounds up uniquely interesting and creative spaces for inspiration and, because no one can resist a makeover story, features before and after photos of homes. The blog’s Instagram feed, meanwhile, is a fantastic display of the different fine points that distinguish a well-decorated home: clusters of pillows, floral arrangements and smartly set tables. If you firmly believe the, “design is in the details,” follow Design Sponge tout suite!

Hank and Hunt. If you would rather host a party than attend one, you and Jenny of Hank + Hunt are kindred spirits. Jenny is a decorations designer and her blog is the ultimate hosting and party-planning guide. Jenny’s Instagram feed is an extension of her blog with demonstrations on how to make your home into an entertainment epicenter. From the basics of stocking a dessert cart to a drink cart to her latest vintage store finds, Jenny’s posts are teasers to what she later shares on the blog.

Hommemaker Blog. The man behind the lens of the Hommemaker Blog is Orlando Soria, creative director of Homepolish, the new design service for budget-conscious city dwellers who want to decorate their spaces with the help of a pro. As the blog’s name indicates, Hommemaker caters towards the male audience, inspiring them to actively re-thing their décor schemes, but Orlando’s bright and open style is so appealing to men and women alike. Follow Orlando on Instagram and you’ll be treated to beautiful interiors that include lots of personal touches without feeling cluttered. His feed will immediately inspire you to reorganize your book shelf and possibly invest in some succulent plants in sweet planters.

Honestly WTF. Erica and Lauren of Honestly WTF immediately distinguished themselves as the coolest DIY bloggers in the market when they launched their cheekily named blog in 2010. As the two gained notoriety for their skills with a hot glue gun, beads and fabric paint, their blog expanded to include food, beauty and home décor—all of course with the effortlessly cool and humble vibe Honestly WTF has made its trademark. If you’re hoping to introduce some California-inspired aesthetics into your home, follow Honestly WTF’s Instagram account for organization tips, inspiring spaces and artfully arranged wall art.

The Every Girl. Fashion and lifestyle blog The Every Girl certainly lives up to its namesake target audience: every girl. Whether you’re a college student or a workplace veteran, there is an article of interest—ranging from how to prepare the best kale salad, build a home office or host an intimate dinner party-- for you on The Every Girl. After reviewing their Instagram feed, you may be inspired to paint your walls a brilliant white and introduce a colorful and bold carpet, chevron printed serving trays and a yellow sitting chair into your living room. Their home décor inspiration feels deliberately busy, filled with personal mementos and broken up with sleek white table tops.
