As a somewhat décor-challenged person (particularly consider I’m a lifestyle editor), it never ceases to amaze me what talented, visionary people are able to create out of what appear to be the same objects I have in my home. A decent-looking couch; a cool coffee table; some not-deplorable art looks fine in my apartment, but similar items, when arranged by a brilliant interior stylist, transform into photogenic, Instagram-ready magic.
If I can’t bring those exact same skills to my home—although, dammit, I’m going to keep trying—at least they can live in my IG feed, taking all the photos around them up a notch and inspiring me to try to make my home just a little more aesthetically elevated. Ahead, 10 interior designers you should follow ASAP if you’re not already.
