Design inspirations a tap away

One of the best things about acquiring your own living space is getting the chance to spruce it up and having your place reflect your personality. It becomes extra special when you come home to a space you have arranged yourself.

A personalized place also makes for a good conversation piece when you have guests over.  It tells the story of your life: from the colors you’ve chosen, the unusual trinkets on the coffee table or credenza, the style of your couch, down to the knick knacks on the kitchen counter.


However, do-it-yourself interior decorating can be overwhelming. Just when you think you know exactly the kind of look you want for your home, you run into a blank wall, confused on how to exactly achieve that “boho chic” or “modern luxe” style you have in mind.

Good thing there are various Instagram accounts which can serve as our beacon when the long and arduous tunnel of interior designing seems to be closing in on us. Inspiration is simply one tap away. Here are some of the Instagram accounts we turn to for that #interiordesigninspo.



You’re into the classic and clean look but worried that your unit might look so stark. Amy Kim of @homeyohmy shows us how to play around with the classic black and white combo.

The LA-based content creator and stylist keeps indoor plants and also throws in light pinks and pale blues to break the monotony of color. Basic black and white need not be boring.


If you, on the other hand, love color, Shauna Glenn’s Instagram account is just what you should check out. The writer-turned-interior stylist keeps indoor spaces happy with vibrant yellows, bright turquoises, fuchsias and tangerines.

If you want color splashed all over your living space but are reluctant for fear of turning your unit into something gaudy, @shaunaglenn might just be your guide.
