We may frequent the feeds of major design and furnishing retailers for trendy and aspirational interiors to copy (often on a very different budget), but there’s something about the authenticity behind a rare snapshot of an It girl’s lived-in dwelling that gets us every time. Between how perfectly their decor tips translate IRL and how simple it can be to score the look for less, the inspiration is forever endless. Ahead, eight design takeaways from top fashion influencers on Instagram and their ultra-stylish spaces.
Tip: Considering a remodel? Brushed gold or bronze hardware against black and white marble is an unexpectedly cool approach to the powder room.
Tip: An easy way to fill empty shelf space (without spending a dime): Stack a high pile of your favorite fashion books.
Tip: Layer rugs in contrasting patterns and textures to fill empty space.
Tip: Add character to bright white walls with a fringed wall hanging. It's currently the cool-girl alternative to an oversize mirror or art print.
Tip: Inject color and dimension into your space with a tall indoor plant.
Tip: If you're blessed with generous closet space, forgo a traditional shoe rack and display your favorite pairs on clean white shelving.
Tip: Accessorize a bright and cheerful accent wall with a framed print featuring imagery in a similar color scheme.
