With social media, there are plenty of places to find design inspiration. You don’t have to clip ideas from a magazine (though it’s still fun to build an inspiration board that way)—you can open Instagram, search a particular hashtag, and get a timeline full of carefully styled interiors to suit your fancy. Better yet, you can save posts to collections in your own account to refer back to them later. 


No matter your style, there’s bound to be an account on Instagram where you can draw inspiration. Here are our top picks for national Instagram accounts to follow for a daily dose of design inspiration:
